The Canary Islands

Overlooked by the brooding volcanic slopes of Mount Teide, Tenerife offers much for the visitor, from exotic gold and dark sand beaches to cosmopolitan dining and a fun-loving party atmosphere. Intriguing volcanic landscapes and dazzling sun-bleached sands attract guests  year-round to the dramatic islands of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote where constant warm winds off the African coast and stunning stretches of remote dunes and sands are a paradise for watersports. Gran Canaria’s dramatic scenery sees wild-west style ravines cascade down mountainous peaks to shifting desert sands fringed by exquisite beaches – a real ‘continent in miniature’.
