Canary Islands

Canary Islands are a beach-enthusiast-traveler’s paradise; and the destination is fast evolving into a popular holiday place for many travelers. You can compare holidays to Lanzarote, which lies in the northeastern part of Canary Islands and has been declared as an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

The sun drenched islands are located close to the North African region. The place is full of rugged cliffs, rich forests, rolling sand dunes and volcanoes. You can go for a camel ride in the volcanic National Park of Timanfaya. The tourists coming here also visit Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife. The seven major islands located in this volcanic archipelago range from Fuerteventura and Lanzarote in the eastern side to La Palma and Hierro in the west. The islands are quite mountainous despite being called as beach destinations. The third biggest volcano in the world, Tenerife is located in Spain’s highest mountain Teide.

Tenerife and Gran Canara are the largest and most populated islands of the canaries. Both islands have greener mountainous interiors, attractive picturesque villages and modern resorts; reaching out to a diverse range of tourists. Christmas is extravagantly celebrated on the beach and the festivities appeal to a huge number of visitors each year. You can visit the capital cities of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, which are bustling centers of the Spanish culture. So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and explore the exotic Canary Islands!
