Cheap holidays to the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands, with their balmy weather, exotic volcanic landscapes and seemingly endless soft-sanded beaches, are a haven for travellers looking for a cheap holiday with a difference. From sunbathing to scuba diving, national parks to nightlife, this charming group of Spanish islands has everything you could ever want from a fantastic European break. Whatever the nature of your stay, renting one of HomeAway's villas in the Canary Islands will not only offer a great base, but the chance to sample a different way of life. You can enjoy the ample sunshine, the Canary’s unique version of Spanish culture, and admire dramatic island scenery whilst enjoying the peace and security only a private home can offer. We have villas to rent throughout the islands, ranging from arid landscapes in Lanzarote and shining soft-sanded beaches in Fuerteventura, to secluded National Parks in Tenerife and lush forests in La Palma.

  1. Fuerteventura

    Holding claim to the best (and biggest) beaches in the Canaries, Fuerteventura is a haven for water-sports enthusiasts, and anyone who seeks golden sands stretching as far as the eye can see. For beaches and water-sports, you need look no further than the breezy dunes of Corralejo at the northern tip of the island, or for a more secluded beach area, head to the sands west of Playa Del Mattoral. If volcanic landscapes sound more appealing, head inland to La Olivia, where you'll find the majority of our beautiful Fuerteventura villas.

  2. Tenerife

    As the largest and best-known island in the Canaries, Tenerife is a tourist favourite. In the centre of the island towers Pico Del Teide: at 3718 metres high, it's the tallest mountain in Spain, and offers spectacular views of neighbouring islands out to the Atlantic Ocean. To the south you'll find excellent nightlife, with Los Christianos and Playa De Las Americas topping the lists for places to party. If a more relaxed holiday is on the cards, head north to the capital of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, or west to the stunning cliffs of Los Gigantes: you'll find a more traditional take on Canarian culture!

  3. Gran Canaria

    As an island of many faces, Gran Canaria holds much more than its traditional beach image may portray. Las Palmas in the north is the island’s main city, with everything you could ever want from a bustling Mediterranean metropolis. Along the coast, meanwhile, are a range of beach towns and resorts, but if you’re feeling adventurous then head for the central National Park of Garajony. Gran Canaria also boasts an array of excellent historical sites: the Iglesia de San Juan church, which sits above chilled-out Arucas, is well worth a visit.

  4. Lanzarote

    Sometimes called “the windy isle” due to its warm Atlantic breezes, Lanzarote is a little different from its neighbouring Canary Islands. Arrecife is the island's main city: from here, you can book various guided tours to explore the lunar volcanic landscapes surrounding, or simply lie back and relax on the beach! For a taste of history head north to Teguise, where the impressive looking Castillo de Santa Barbara stands majestically over the town. For something a little more unusual, why not try the pirate charm of a tour with the Marea Errota? It sails out of Playa Blanca, and provides a great way to see the island.

  5. La Palma

    Whilst Lanzarote is called “windy”, La Palma has earned the name “pretty island”. The greenest of all the Canaries, it features fantastic walking trails around its expansive National Park, and cycling tours are operated by a variety of companies around the island. Of course, La Palma's not purely not for outdoorsy types: Playa Las Palmas features a host of good restaurants and bars, and there are plenty of historical sites to explore. In the evening, why not visit the Roque de los Muchachos observatory, and enjoy a glass of local wine? The island has a thriving wine culture, and booking a tour around a vineyard offers a fantastic way to spend the day.
