Comprised of seven islands boasting magnificent beaches and natural attractions, the Canary Islands is the ideal destination for travellers who want to spend their vacation swimming, soaking up sun, and participating in water sports, or exploring the region's rich culture and biodiversity.

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and home to many of the area's most popular tourist attractions, including the UNESCO Heritage city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna and Teide National Park, one of Spain's oldest national parks. Gran Canaria, the third largest island of the Canaries, is another bustling hub of tourism. The capital of the island, Las Palmas, is famous for its wide selection of restaurants and bars. Fuerteventura is the most beautiful of the islands, with over 150 beaches, a gorgeous coastline, and outstanding tourist resorts. Lanzarote is known for its unspoiled shorelines and golden sand beaches. The island of La Palma boasts lush vegetation and diverse flora and fauna, while El Hierro's stark volcanic landscape is the perfect place to escape the crowds.

With average daily temperatures of 22 degrees Celsius year-round, it's said that the Canary Island's have the best climate in the world. That said, there are certain times of year when you'll want to avoid travelling to the islands -- such as during the peak seasons (winter and summer), when flights and accommodations are more expensive. The best time to book your trip is during the spring or fall months, when you can enjoy the same beautiful weather as the peak travel months, minus the tourist crowds.

What to See and Do in Canary Islands

A great way to start your tour of the Canaries is to head to Las Palmas, the capital of Gran Canaria. Here, you'll find numerous museums, historic buildings, and cultural attractions, not to mention some of the best beaches in the region. Las Palmas is also where you can see the Gran Telescopio Canarias, a telescope designed to work with the island's high mountains and clear weather conditions. Lanzarote, the easternmost island, offers more great beaches, as well as an ancient volcanic inland waiting to be explored. Fuerteventura's miles of golden sand beaches aren't the island's only attraction; venture into the island's interior, and you'll find quaint villages nestled in deep valleys and old, dried up riverbeds.
