Things to see in The Canary Islands
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor


Not far from the African coast, the volcanic islands of the Canary archipelago each have their own distinctive character; the majestic 12,200 ft high Teide Volcano of Tenerife, the beaches of Fuerteventura and the lunar horizons of Lanzarote, while Gran Canaria combines many stunning Canarian landscapes.

Arts and culture

The cities of the Canary Islands are full of museums so remember to take a break from sunbathing to fit in some culture; your holiday memories will be all the better for it!

Activities and leisure

Tenerife is the island where the greatest number of amusement parks is to be found, such as the famous Loro Parque and Siam Park. Tenerife is also a golfing island, with 8 golf courses, but Gran Canaria follows closely behind, with 6 golf courses. It is possible to go kite surfing everywhere in the Canaries, but Fuerteventura is a spot renowned throughout the world.
