The Canary Islands: A Brief Lowdown

The Canary Islands: A Brief Lowdown

There’s no denying that the Canaries are a popular choice with British holidaymakers looking for a piece of sunshine. If you have found yourself in one of the more popular resorts during the peak times, you will know that they can be incredibly busy, lively and fun-filled. However, the Canary Islands are a superb place to head, whatever the time of year you need your fill of sunshine. Located just off the coast of Morocco, they provide beautiful climes no matter when you choose to travel.

The decision that you’re left with is which of the Canary Islands do you plump for? The majority of your choice will be based on what you want to gain from your holiday on these islands – is it a family friendly resort you’re after? A clubber’s paradise? Or complete tranquillity? Whatever you’re after, there’ll be something for you.


With Tenerife holidays, there’s something for everyone. Whether it’s the vibrant nightlife of Playa de las Americas or Los Cristianos, the family friendly beaches of the quieter resorts or the excursions to Mount Teide in the heart of a national park that float your boat, the island has plenty on offer.

Gran Canaria

Small and perfectly formed, Gran Canaria holidays continue to be incredibly popular with British families and are affordable, too. Trekking the Maspalomas Sand Dunes aboard a camel or a day at Palmitos Park would be ideal additions to any island itinerary.


Perfect for watersports enthusiasts, the wind conditions that encircle Fuerteventura are ideal for surfers and windsurfers looking to ride the crest. The island is also fabulous if all you want to do is chill out.


From the natural landscapes of Timanfaya National Park to the quality beaches in the south, Lanzarote offers a great mix of authentic charm and welcoming atmosphere; perfect for couples and families, alike.


As the four major Canary Islands, these tend to be the ones people flock to every summer. Take a look at all the options and book your favourite online!
