The Canary Islands are one of the most popular destinations where the brits choose to go on their holidays. Its perfect weather during our winter months without having to travel super far.
The canary Islands are spanish and are close to one another in the Atlantic sea just off the north-west of Africa. It takes around 4 hours from the UK to the Islands.
There are 10 Canary Islands, starting with the biggest:
*Isla de Alegranza
*Isla de Lobos
I have been to Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote and I have to say they are beautiful. The weather isn't my personnel favourite of the Islands as I like it very dry and very hot. I found they were cloudy most of the time and more like the UK's summer weather. However I did always come back brown!
I'm sure you are aware that these Islands are made of volcanic rock and the sand is black and the landscape is something you need to see. There are 6 Islands that have volcanoes which are
Don't worry they haven't erupted for hundreds of years!
The people are friendly and the food is yummy. There is so much to do on the main Islands to keep you and the children entertained. Hikers and golfers are also very fond of the Canary's too. Fishing has a big reputation there too, not for me though I don't like the fish in our contry let alone scary big ones out there!
The main Islands have a brilliant night life. I went to Lanzarote a few years ago with one of my best mates and we were clubbing till 7am! Drinks are very cheap too. I felt safe all the time day and night.
I would recommend any of the Islands I have been too and myself and my family are actually looking a trip Island hopping so we get to see all of them.
The currency is Euro's and I found it to be quite cheap eating out and shopping to my delight!
If your planning to go to any of the Islands have a great time! :-)
Summary: Very much recommended! Thank you for reading :-)
