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.

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.

Gran Canaria travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Nightlife · Geologic Formations
Often described as a "continent in miniature" because of its wildly varied landscapes and climates, Grand Canaria is mostly known for its long coastline where tourism thrives at modern resorts. The island is also a ideal for sightseeing by bike or on foot. A wide range of trails, from easy to challenging, link the island’s picturesque coastline and the quieter inland areas, which are dotted by green ravines and sleepy villages. Savvy travelers explore the island’s ancient but well-preserved cave dwellings, many of which have been turned into small restaurants serving a myriad of local delicacies unlikely to be found on the menu of any big-city eatery.
