HOW TO SPEND YOUR CANARY ISLAND HOLIDAY
From basking in Spain’s glorious sunshine to taking part in fun-filled activities, there’s something for everyone on a Canary Islands holiday. A cluster of volcanic islands, we offer destination escapes across the Canaries, including holidays to Tenerife and Gran Canaria getaways, as well as escapes to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.
Canary Islands holidays are famous for offering beautiful beaches and with summer temperatures averaging 24°C, so be sure to bring plenty of sunscreen with you! An extra treat from the Canaries is the exceptionally warm, sunny weather throughout the year - perfect if you’re looking for a winter sun holiday to escape the cold.
Each Canary island has its own distinctive characteristics too. Scenic Tenerife is ideal for groups of friends and families keen to explore the local sights, visit the many clubs in Playa de las Americas, or make a splash at the world's best waterpark, Siam Park on the Costa Adeje. Lanzarote is a very family-friendly Canary Island holiday, with several waterparks and a popular zoo as well as the fascinating Timanfaya National Park - choose Puerto del Carmen if you like to be at the heart of the action, or Costa Teguise if you'd prefer to relax and get away from it all.
Holidays to Gran Canaria offer almost guaranteed sunshine and the island is a favourite among party animals - Playa del Ingles is home to a host of vibrant nightclubs, however Maspalomas is more low-key. Or if it's a week or two or pure relaxation that you want, Fuerteventura offers quieter resorts such as Corralejo and Costa Caleta that are favoured by couples seeking a more laid-back holiday to the Canary Islands.
Whichever of the Canary Islands you choose, Hays Travel are here to help you plan a holiday to the Canaries that you'll never forget. If you’re looking for an island escape elsewhere, we can help with that too! With Greek island destinations like Santorini holidays and Corfu holidays to choose from too, you’re bound to find the escape you’ve been dreaming of.
At Hays Travel we have over 40 years of experience in booking amazing holidays to Spain and the Canaries, and are proud to have been voted the UK's Best High Street Travel Agent too!
