Located in the blue, refreshing waters of the Atlantic Ocean, holidays to the Canary Islands offer superb beaches, beautiful landscapes and year round sunshine. Just 100km off the coast of Africa and a short four hour plane ride from the UK you could be on your Canaries holiday, soaking up the sun, sooner than you think.
Things to do
- With more than 1500km of coastline, you'll find your dream beach on your holiday to the Canaries, be it in Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, or the less well-known island of La Palma.
- The islands' volcanic history offers many exploring opportunities offering an alternative to the beaches. The Green Caves to the north of Lanzarote is a beautiful system of 5,000 year old underground caves.
- For a different underwater experience, try BOB diving in Tenerife; an underwater scooter which eliminates the need for underwater breathing equipment.
