Often wrongly placed in the Mediterranean, probably by analogy with their cousins the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands are actually located several hundred kilometres west of the Moroccan coast, a latitude that guarantees them crystal-clear water and summer temperatures all year round. The two main islands, Gran Canaria and Tenerife, have long established themselves as specialists in all-inclusive holidays for a fan-footed holiday. However, it would be a shame to sum up a holiday on the Canaries as a holiday in hotels with large swimming pools. These Spanish islands that fill our lazy holidays are endowed with varied landscapes. Tenerife, for example, is home to the majestic Teid, a volcano with a lunar landscape and an excellent stargazing spot. Their wilder neighbours each have their own specialities: La Gomera impresses with its lush vegetation and offers us beautiful walks in its pine forests and black sand beaches. La Palma, with its heavenly creeks where swimming is so pleasant and its recent volcanic activity. Fuerteventura, with its large expanses of fine sand and turquoise waters promises you an unforgettable trip. El Hierro with its unsuspected geological formations where you can try your hand at diving and Lanzarotte with its waves and folklore. And finally, Gran Canaria, with its divine sand dunes! There are many tropical activities on offer, including many water sports such as scuba diving. You can also meet whales and dolphins who also enjoy the warm waters of the archipelago. This tourist guide will allow you to outline your trip on the spot. Impossible to talk about the Canary Islands without mentioning their gastronomy: fish, seafood and tapas are the basis of most typical dishes, but it is the papas arrugadas, small seasoned potatoes, perfect for a good meal during a family trip.
