  • What’s the Best Canary Island?

    The Canary Islands may be considered a part of Spain, but they’re actually much closer to Marrakech. This means they benefit from a sub-tropical location, providing beautiful weather all year round. 

    Each of the islands boasts its own unique charm. So, when you’re looking for the best Canary Island to head to, it really depends upon what you’re looking for from your holiday. Below, we’ll help you discover which of these islands is best for you.

    With a wide variety of activities and attractions, Gran Canaria is a great place to take the family. Pretty whitewashed villages and 120 miles of pristine coastline are the island’s main draw. However, did you know it’s also a really popular spot for hikers?

    If you like to explore the scenery of a destination and you’re a keen hiker, you’ll find Gran Canaria is the best Canary Island to head to. Hike over the impressive sand dunes, or across the pine covered mountains, to see the best of the island.
