Holidays in the Canary Islands have been a popular choice with British holidaymakers for many years. Located just off the coast of North Africa, the Canary Islands are made up of the islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and La Palma - all have their own character, but one thing they have in common is lots of sunshine. Summers are hot and in winter temperatures rarely drop below the late teens. From beautiful beaches and dramatic volcanic landscapes, to party towns, golf courses and water parks, there's something in the Canary Islands to suit everyone. When it comes to Canary Islands accommodation, choose from self-catering apartments, luxury spa hotels and all-inclusive complexes. Whether you're looking for a family holiday, a young and lively getaway, a relaxing retreat, a bargain late deal or a dose of winter sun - a holiday in the Canary Islands ticks all the boxes. Why fly long-haul for some winter sunshine, when a 4-hour flight to the Canary Islands fits the bill just as well!

The weather in the Canary Islands is warm and sunny almost all year round, with temperatures ranging from around 18c in winter and way above 25 degrees in the summer. The seven islands are all Spanish, but their nearest mainland neighbour is Morocco, which lies 95 kilometres east of Fuerteventura. Located in the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands are much further south than Mediterranean destinations, making them a great choice for a winter sun holiday. Virtually perpetual sunshine is one of the main reasons why the Canary Islands are such a holiday hit.
Things to see & do

There's more to holidays in the Canary Islands than just sunshine. Each island is different, but they all offer an array of activities, including diving, water parks, snorkelling, jeep safaris, horse riding, fishing, boat trips, windsurfing, golf, shopping, biking and hiking. On Tenerife, don't miss stunning Mount Teide or Loro Parque animal park. On Lanzarote, visit lunar landscapes and whitewashed villages a legacy left by artist Cesar Manrique. Over on Fuerteventura, Oasis Park is home to beautiful botanical gardens and a great zoo. On Gran Canaria, the spectacular sand dunes of Maspalomas are a mustsee sight. In quieter La Palma, discover untouched forests, or take to the Atlantic for a day of whale watching.

Nightlife in the Canaries is varied, depending on the resort and the island. The two liveliest resorts are Tenerife's Playa de las Americas and Gran Canaria's Playa del Ingles, where revellers head for clubbing and late nights. Fuerteventura's main resort Corralejo and Puerto del Carmen on Lanzarote offer plenty of pubs and karaoke bars. On each island, the established resorts have a good choice of bars and clubs and many hotels offer inhouse, familyfriendly entertainment. There's a type of nightlife for everyone in the Canary Islands.

Food & drink

There are restaurants to tempt your tastebuds in the Canary Islands. Canarian specialities include papas arrugadas (potatoes cooked in their skins and seasoned with salt,) freshly caught seafood, tapas, spicy sauces and locallyproduced wine. In the northern regions of Tenerife and La Palma, charming rural restaurants serve up traditional fare. Most hotels serve up international dishes and larger resorts have a host of international restaurants, fast food joints and Britishstyle pubs.
