Things to do in the Canary Islands

  • Beaches in the Canary Islands - The Canary Islands boast some world-class beaches; among them is Famara in northwest Lanzarote, which is an excellent surf beach situated at the base of some spectacular cliffs. Maspalomas, in Gran Canaria, is world-renowned for its sand dunes, while on Tenerife there are black sands, such as those at El Bollullo.
  • Natural scenery in the Canary Islands - The archipelago boasts wide stretches of unspoiled, almost lunar, scenery, with landmarks like the Hacha Grande mountain in Lanzarote and Roque Nublo on Gran Canaria. Perhaps the most famous is El Teide, the highest point in Spain, and the third-largest volcano in the world. You can catch a cable car to an observation platform high on its slopes, which will give you some amazing views!
  • Visitor attractions in the Canary Islands - One of the Canary Islands’ premier attractions is Loro Parque on Tenerife. This bird park is home to more than 300 species of parrot, but has also been expanded over the years to include other zoological attractions like an aquarium and enclosures for penguins, jaguars and gorillas.
  • Ocean adventures in the Canary Islands - With volcanic geology, diverse marine life and warm waters, the Canary Islands are a top destination for diving, and there are centres across the archipelago in Fuerteventura, Lazarote and Tenerife. Boat trips are also organised from towns and tourist resorts to go and see whales and dolphins in their natural habitats.
  • Nightlife in the Canary Islands - Many of the tourist resorts around the Canary Islands offer vibrant and exciting nightlife and entertainment. In Lanzarote the resorts at Playa Blanca and Arrecife are perfect for young holidaymakers, we offer a range of villas in Lanzarote and apartments in Tenerife for those who want to party. Tenerife plays host to Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, with bars and clubs that stay open until dawn.

Weather in the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are known for their pleasant year-round weather, with daily highs of at least 20 degrees, even in winter. The sunniest months are between May and October, and if you head there in mid-summer you’ll encounter no rainfall and daily temperatures that get up to the high-20s. The wettest months of the year are December and January but even then there are normally only five or six rainy days per months at this time of year.

Travelling to the Canary Islands

You can get to the Canary Islands and your Canary Island holiday cottages via the international airports at Tenerife South (TFS), Lanzarote (ACE), Fuerteventura (FUE), Gran Canaria (LPA) and La Palma (SPC). There are also smaller regional airports at La Gomera (GMZ) and El Hierro (VDE) and you’ll also be able to catch ferries between the islands. The main mode of public transport in the Canary Islands is the bus, with lines linking to all the major tourist destinations and metropolitan routes in the cities. If you’d like to experience the islands’ beautiful scenery in your own time then it may be worth hiring a car.

You won't be short of outdoor activities near your holiday let

In the unlikely event you tire of the beach, there are plenty of activities near your Canary Islands holiday rental, from rambling up along the meandering mountain trails to snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters, surrounded by a dazzling array of marine life. Alternatively, you could learn a new water sport, like sea kayaking or kitesurfing, at a beachfront school, or tee off from 1 of the coastal golf courses. Culture vultures don't have to miss out, either. Some of Spain's most celebrated artists, like Oscar Dominguez and Cesar Manrique, came from the Canary Islands and their unmistakable works can be seen in the public sculptures and galleries.
