Beaches in Canary Islands
Our villas to rent in the Canary Islands are a short distance away from the gorgeous sandy shores, and for a good reason. The beaches here are some of the best, and each island offers a beautiful selection of beaches.
Corralejo Grandes Playas
Heading to Fuerteventura? Don't forget to visit the stunning Corralejo Grandes Playas beach. It makes up part of the Corralejo National Park and features beautiful stretches of sand. You can also see the island of Los Lobos.
Located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Teresitas Beach is ideal for tourists. It's one of the most famous golden beaches in the Canary Islands, but the developers used African sand to make it more unique.
Lanzarote also has some lovely beaches, with the Puerto del Carmen resort no exception. The rocky beach immediately makes an impression, and tourists can enjoy swimming in the beautiful blue waters.
Gran Canaria is known for its spectacular scenery, and Maspalamos Beach is no exception. It's the perfect combination of sand dunes and has a desert vibe. Also, you can appreciate the beautiful waters while taking in the majestic scenery.
With so many beautiful beaches, you're spoiled for choice. Whether it's Playa Blanca's ice-white sand or the sand dunes in Corralejo, there are many striking stretches of shoreline in the Canaries to capture your imagination.
Many are safe for families thanks to their Blue-Flag status and offer heaps of water sports opportunities thanks to the archipelago's breezy climate.
Watch live music and traditional dancing or enjoy a relaxing sundowner by a pretty marina – there's something to cater for everyone's night scene needs.
Playa del Inglés
Now, this is a resort centre that has it all. The vibrant nightlife of Gran Canaria won't disappoint you, and while it's one of the quieter islands, Playa del Inglés certainly makes up for it.
With so many cabaret bars, karaoke joints and good old nightclubs, you can stay entertained until the early morning.
If you're looking for a quieter evening, why not head to some local bars?
Fuerteventura doesn't just offer spectacular sand dunes; it also has an impressive collection of clubs and bars. However, the island is more family-orientated, so you can take advantage of the many restaurants and kid-family places for entertainment if you have children.
Puerto del Carmen
Puerto del Carmen offers a wide range of entertainment options for young and mature people. There's plenty to do with around 7km of bars, clubs and restaurants. While it's quieter than Tenerife, you'll be able to dance the night away.
Playa de las Américas
This resort doesn't really need an introduction because you've probably heard of it already. The Veronicas strip is busy, bustling and a hot spot for tourists worldwide. Playa de las Américas is all about having fun with an assortment of lively nightclubs and Irish-themed pubs.
Food and Drink in Canary Islands
A villa holiday in the Canary Islands is incomplete without a deep dive into the local gourmet wonders. It's clear to see Spain's influence on the Canaries when you know what's on the menu here.
You'll find all the regular dishes, including paella and tapas options, not forgetting sublime fresh seafood – one of the islands' advantages of having easy access to the sea. The Canary Islands also boast their speciality dishes, some of which carry a North African influence.
History and Culture in Canary Islands
The Canaries' striking volcanic terrain makes them a fascinating place to visit and offers a peak into their turbulent and violent past.
Each island offers a unique appeal, and while there's not as much history as places such as Athens or Rome, you'll have a great time diving into the past of these diverse landscapes.
Castilla de la Luz
The impressive fortress Castilla de la Luz is in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the oldest in the Canary Islands. Built-in the 1400s, the Cultural Heritage Site now displays 25 sculptures by Martín Chirino, but you can still see the beautiful history of the building.
San Gabriel's Castle
The Castle of San Gabriel was initially developed to protect the island of Lanzarote from pirates. You can walk across the bridge, marvel at the imposing structure and take a walk around the History Museum of Arrecife.
LM Arte Colección museum
Located in Tenerife, the LM Arte Colección museum features an impressive art collection central to Canarian and Spanish culture. Even if you're not a fan of art, you'll still appreciate the beautiful building.
With sun, sea, sand and fantastic nightlife; the Canary Islands are a dream holiday spot
When people are looking for a relaxing holiday in the sunshine, the Canary Islands is a top choice. Our villas are available in Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife, with each island offering something unique.
If you're a fan of relaxing holidays, then Fuerteventura could be the perfect holiday spot. It's renowned for beautiful beaches and a family-friendly vibe. What makes this island truly special is the amount of wind it generates.
People travel from all over during the summer months to partake in watersports and kite surfing. It has some great nightlife opportunities but is a more peaceful island.
Nature lovers flock to Gran Canaria for its incredible scenery. It's the perfect place to go hiking, and plenty of outdoor activities keep you occupied. You can also visit the historic Santa Ana Cathedral and enjoy the vibrant nightlife.
Many people would agree that Lanzarote is the best place for families because it has so much to do and an inclusive vibe. The dramatic landscape will take your breath away, and you'll also enjoy the modern towns with interesting architecture.
Lanzarote is home to the Ranchos Texas Park, full-of animals and lively attractions to keep the kids entertained.
Tenerife is undoubtedly the most popular Canary Island and an excellent spot for family or luxury villa holidays. The island has a lot to offer in terms of natural beauty, including Teide National Park, and long, sandy stretches of beaches.
Let's not forget the lively Playa de las Americas resort, renowned for its nightclubs and bars.
Whether hiking up Tenerife's enormous Mount Teide or exploring the rocky landscapes, there is no end to photo opportunities everywhere you look.
Many of these sites are also UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so you can enjoy a peaceful experience with beautiful nature everywhere.
Ethical dolphin watching
If you'd rather stay away from the tourist parks and want to see animals in their natural habitat, then Tenerife has some excellent dolphin and whale watching excursions.
Lanzarote Biosphere Reserve
Lanzarote fulfils the criteria for classification as a Biosphere Reserve, and it's no surprise. With such stunning landscapes, the entire island feels like a nature excursion, and Lanzarote's Timanfaya National Park is, without a doubt, the highlight.
Go hiking in Gran Canaria
La Goleta to Roque Nublo is one of the more challenging hikes in Gran Canaria, but it's worth it. You'll get to take in the stunning and imposing Clouded Rock, but the trek is usually open between October and May.
