Destination guide

Exotic getaways in the Canary Islands

Black sand beaches glisten in the morning light, drawing the eye to the crashing surf and soaring cliffs of the Canary Islands. Otherworldly volcanic cones may make you feel as though you've landed on the moon, but bustling cities and historic villages soon bring visitors back down to Earth. Canary Islands vacation rentals are close to luxurious resorts and exquisite beaches, and often within walking distance of lively nightclubs and fantastic restaurants. Though the vast sandy beaches are heavenly, inland forests and craggy peaks beckon hikers and explorers, while charming towns offer food with Spanish and African influences.

Enjoy endless spring in the Canary Islands

Huddled just off the north-west coast of Africa, the Canary Islands boast an everlasting spring climate, with brisk sea breezes and cool waters lapping at the sandy beaches. The 7 islands boast average temperatures that hover between 64 and 75, but they also have a wide range of microclimates, thanks to varying topographies that include snow-covered mountains and pristine beaches.

Natural features

Natural wonders in the Canary Islands

Located off the coast of Morocco in north-west Africa, the Canary Islands are renowned for their black sand beaches and occasionally-active volcanoes. The islands offer a vast range of geography, from exotic beaches and sheer rocky cliffs to lush farmland and soaring mountains, and are also home to an abundant bird population, including the bright yellow canary. Contrary to popular opinion, the bird was named after the islands and not the other way round. Savvy observers may spot the rare and endangered caretta turtle or the bottle-nose dolphin.
