Destination guide

A year-round destination for fun in the sun

The rugged Canary Islands is a Spanish archipelago that lies just off the coast of Morocco and the Western Sahara. While each island has its own distinct personality, the archipelago is known for its long stretches of palm-fringed golden beach, dramatic lava fields and cactus-studded mountain landscapes. Your days here can be as sedate or active as you want. Some like to fly and flop on the sand, others lace up their boots and hit the spectacular trails. It doesn't matter whether you're after a romantic break, a fun-filled family getaway or an outdoor adventure holiday, you'll always find a Canary Islands holiday let that fits the bill.

History

Explore the unique culture of the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands has a long and fascinating history that dates back to before Roman times. Centuries after they discovered the islands, Arab traders passed through and left their mark on the cuisine and culture. It wasn't until the 15th century that Castilians from what is now Spain settled on the archipelago and began introducing the agriculture of sugarcane and wine. Years later, mass emigration from the Canaries to South America reduced the population, but those who returned brought back influences from Venezuela and beyond. Fast forward to the 1970s and tourism began to revive the islands' economy. Today, the distinct layers of cultures that have come and gone can be seen, tasted and heard in the architecture, food and music.

Outdoor activities

You won't be short of outdoor activities near your holiday let

In the unlikely event you tire of the beach, there are plenty of activities near your Canary Islands holiday rental, from rambling up along the meandering mountain trails to snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters, surrounded by a dazzling array of marine life. Alternatively, you could learn a new water sport, like sea kayaking or kitesurfing, at a beachfront school, or tee off from 1 of the coastal golf courses. Culture vultures don't have to miss out, either. Some of Spain's most celebrated artists, like Oscar Dominguez and Cesar Manrique, came from the Canary Islands and their unmistakable works can be seen in the public sculptures and galleries.

How to get around

Getting around the Canary Islands

If you want to see a little more than just the path down to the beach from your Canary Islands holiday let, there are plenty of options for getting around. While each island is different, you'll always find moving around a breeze. On Tenerife, there are 140 bus routes to choose from that criss-cross from north to south. Then there are the taxis, which are both inexpensive and easy to find. Alternatively, you could nab a car rental from one of the big firms at the airport and have the freedom to move around at your own pace.

Food & drink

Sample the Canary Islands' regional delicacies

The cuisine of the Canary Islands is like nowhere else in Spain. Sitting at a crossroads between Europe, Africa and the Americas means the gastronomy has picked up influences from across the 3 continents. Throw in year-round hot weather, perfect for growing vegetables, and the surrounding rich ocean waters, and it's hardly a surprise that the food here is as good as it is. Look out for island classics, like papas arrugadas, potatoes smothered in spicy mojo picon sauce, and almogrote, a kind of fondue-like dip made from melted cheese, best eaten with chunks of locally-made bread. Then there's the seafood, which needs nothing more than to be pan-fried and drizzled with Spanish olive oil.
