Canary Islands travel guide

4.3
Beaches · Water Parks · Nightlife
Modern, cosmopolitan, and very trendy, the Canary Islands are a major center for European tourism. With a total population of about two million, these seven diverse islands are as distinct from each other as they are from the mainland of Spain. The first settlers arrived from North Africa, building an economic system loosely based around farming. Invaded by Europeans in the 14th century, the islands gradually developed a more European feel, but with a mixed population of ethnicities rarely found anywhere else in the world. While agriculture is still alive and well here, the tropical beaches and vibrant nightlife tend to top any vacation itinerary.

Fuerteventura travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Wildlife Areas · Nightlife
Fuerteventura can be loosely translated as either "Strong Winds" or "Great Adventure," and both translations usually become applicable at some point during a trip here. One of the larger Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is a popular windsurfing and kitesurfing destination, boasting a long coastline of unspoiled white beaches washed by the crystalline waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Water sports aren’t the only things to do on the island, however. It’s also a biosphere reserve rich in remote wilderness areas set aside for protected wildlife, most notably one of the two surviving populations of threatened Egyptian vulture. Of volcanic origin, the island also has an attractive countryside of sleepy villages, ancient volcanoes, and tall palm trees.

Tenerife travel guide

Water Parks · Beaches · Aquariums
Tenerife is the largest and most populous of the seven Canary Islands. With its abundance of sun-warmed beaches, deep gorges, dramatic cliffs, dense forests, and lush valleys filled with thriving banana plantations, the island offers an impressive variety of things to do: snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, hiking, and cycling. You can even spelunk in the island’s volcanic caves and tunnels, among the largest in the world. Tenerife is also known for its nightlife, attracting thousands of weekend revelers from nearby European countries. The island is highly urbanized, though there are still pockets where visitors can enjoy the distinctive local culture and sightseeing at a slower pace.
