Highlights of Canary Islands Location

Welcome to the Canary Islands

A spectacular archipelago located off the northwest coast of Africa, renowned for its stunning landscapes, year-round sunshine, and diverse range of attractions. Comprising seven main islands and several smaller islets, the Canary Islands offer a unique blend of natural beauty, cultural richness, and outdoor adventures waiting to be explored.

Discover the Canary Islands

Each of the Canary Islands has its own distinct character and charm, offering travelers a wide variety of experiences to enjoy. Whether you’re seeking relaxation on the beach, hiking in volcanic landscapes, or exploring historic towns, the Canary Islands have something for everyone.

Beach Paradise

With their warm climate and pristine beaches, the Canary Islands are a paradise for sun-seekers and beach lovers. From the golden sands of Playa del Inglés in Gran Canaria to the black volcanic beaches of Lanzarote, there’s a beach to suit every taste. Relax on the shores of Playa de las Teresitas in Tenerife, with its imported golden sand and crystal-clear waters, or explore the hidden coves and turquoise bays of La Graciosa, the smallest inhabited island in the archipelago.

Natural Wonders

Venture beyond the beaches and discover the breathtaking natural landscapes of the Canary Islands. Hike through the lunar-like landscapes of Teide National Park in Tenerife, home to Spain’s highest peak and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the lush forests and rugged mountains of La Gomera, where ancient trails lead to secluded waterfalls and panoramic viewpoints. Or marvel at the otherworldly terrain of Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote, where volcanic craters, lava fields, and geothermal vents create a surreal landscape unlike anywhere else on Earth.

Cultural Heritage

Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of the Canary Islands with a visit to its historic towns and villages. Explore the colonial architecture and cobblestone streets of Santa Cruz de La Palma, the capital of La Palma island, or wander through the charming streets of Puerto de Mogán in Gran Canaria, known as “Little Venice” for its network of canals and bridges. Discover the indigenous culture of the islands at museums and cultural centers, where exhibits showcase traditional crafts, music, and dance, as well as the fascinating history of the Guanche people who once inhabited the archipelago.

Outdoor Adventures

For outdoor enthusiasts, the Canary Islands offer a wealth of opportunities for adventure and exploration. Dive into the clear waters surrounding the islands and discover vibrant coral reefs, underwater caves, and a kaleidoscope of marine life. Take to the skies with a paragliding or hang gliding excursion, soaring high above the dramatic landscapes and sweeping coastlines below. Or challenge yourself with a trek along the GR131, a long-distance hiking trail that crosses several islands and offers stunning views of the archipelago’s diverse terrain.
