The Canary Islands are a wonderful holiday destination whose benevolent climate welcomes visitors throughout the year. This Spanish archipelago lies in the Atlantic off the coast of West Africa and is volcanic in origin. The four most popular islands are Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura and all have something different to offer. What they have in common is their great climate, their spectacular scenery, high standards of accommodation and service, good food and ample opportunities for shopping. If you dislike extremes of temperature, a Canary Island holiday will fit the bill. Summer or winter, it never gets too hot or too cold. In the summer there is a slight breeze which has a pleasant cooling effect should the mercury become unusually high.
One of the attractions of a Canary Island holiday is that it provides winter warmth for sun-starved Britons without necessitating a long haul flight. This is a great advantage for those travelling with young children. The islands offer a diverse range of accommodation from top of the range all-inclusive hotels and luxury villas to apartments on room only basis, thus ensuring that they cater for all budgets. Do check out the tariffs for all-inclusive holidays especially if you are travelling with children. Constant snacking can be very expensive and it is easy to go over budget. You may find that this option offers the best value for money and at least you know at the outset the total cost of your holiday.
The Canary Islands have a plethora of eateries from fast food and pub grub to first class restaurants that cater for all tastes and pockets. Every island has its own selection of tourist attractions and recreational facilities so there is always plenty to keep you entertained. You can choose from banana boating, surfing, sailing, water skiing and fishing. You can go whale and dolphin watching or big game fishing. Tourist attractions include water parks and amusement parks, bird and animal sanctuaries, camel and horseback riding, national parks and cave explorations.
Canary Island holidays can be as active or as relaxed as you wish as there are resorts to suit all age ranges and interests. If you bring young children for a seaside holiday you'll need to find a sandy beach. Being volcanic, although there are some natural beaches, many of them are coarse and dark and not conducive to castle building. There are of course manmade beaches with sand imported from the Sahara. There are many sheltered bays and coves where bathing is safe and there is a good provision of water sports.
