When it comes to holidays, Spain is the unmitigated queen of destinations, because no matter what you want from a holiday, you’re sure to find something that suits, and this is never truer than when you opt to visit the Canary Islands in particular.

From dramatic landscapes to golden sands and a plethora of opportunities for art and architecture, The Canary Islands are rife with the traditional holiday charms, as well as a whole host of pleasant surprises.

But we can tell you’re still not too sure.

And that’s ok, that’s a tide we can turn no problem. So, allow us to take you on a small tour of some of the best parts of the Canary Islands, complete with some great properties to stay in whilst you’re there. 


Tenerife is an ever-popular destination for all manner of tourists, especially those who love sunning themselves by day and clubbing by night. Lively in atmosphere and with some of the most amazing white sand beaches, it’s also the backdrop for the astonishing Mount Teide Volcano, where if you take a trip to the top you’ll be greeted with some of the most stunning panoramic views in all of Spain.
