Islas Canarias Travel Guide

The Canary Islands are a holiday paradise located in the shadow of dramatic volcanoes. Islas Canarias, the ’islands of the dragon tree and happiness at the edge of the world’, lapped by the Atlantic Ocean.

 

  • LANZAROTE is the archipelago’s fourth largest island at the southern end of which is Playa Blanca, once a fishing village and today a harbour. Rugged beauty born of fire and water, a volcanic paradise.
  • FUERTEVENTURA is the second largest island of the Canary archipelago. In the extreme north of the island is Corralejo that developed into a ferry port and, within a few decades, a bustling holiday resort.
  • GRAN CANARIA is the third largest of the seven Canary Islands. Las Palmas is the capital of the island and metropolis of the Canary archipelago, colourful and multicultural, with a great history.
  • TENERIFE is known as the island of eternal spring. Santa Cruz De Tenerife, north east of the island, is its capital, port and commercial metropolis with classical buildings and splendid monuments that indicate its colourful past.
