Title: Which Canary Islands Points of Interest is Best for Families?


1
Which Canary Islands Points of Interest is Best
for Families?
2
All of them! Its no wonder the Canaries were
once known as the Fortunate Isles this volcanic
archipelago of 7 islands off southwest Morocco is
a near-perfect holiday destination. Theres a
subtropical climate with year-round sunshine, and
a host of natural attractions beautiful
coastlines, national parks, and lush topiary.
Families come for the glorious beaches and
great-value family-friendly hotels, plus theres
no jetlag as youre on European time.

Tenerife
The Island of Eternal Spring, Tenerife is the
largest and most touristy of the Canaries, and
served by the most flights. While some of the
island has been over-developed (in the south),
half is protected for its astonishing
biodiversity across 6 different vegetation zones
and many ravines and valleys. In the middle,
UNESCO-listed Teide National Park holds Spains
highest mountain, the Pico del Teide volcano, and
an observatory (theres great stargazing on the
Canaries). The craggy coastline has plentiful
beaches those in the north have black volcanic
sand.
4
Lanzarote
More tropical than its cohorts, Lanzarote, the
most easterly of the archipelago, has
extraordinary lunar volcanic landscapes, such as
the Mountains of Fire craters in the Parque
Nacional de Timanfaya. Contraty to popular
belief, the island is wonderfully undeveloped
flat-roofed whitewashed houses are everywhere,
but we didnt see a single high rise. Beaches are
fewer but offer golden sands and surfing.
5
Gran Canaria
Dubbed a micro-continent, Gran Canaria is the
island with the most micro climates. Expect
everything from sweeping sand dunes to lush
valleys a 1/3 of the island is protected as a
Biosphere Reserve. Tourist development is mostly
confined to the warmer and sunnier south head to
the cooler north for dramatic cliffs and
mountains. Theres diving, hiking, and the best
beaches are found on the flatter east coast.
6
La Palma
Head to the most north-westerly island, La Palma,
the least developed and most scenic in the
archipelago. Theres a premier observatory at its
summit, much of the terrain is National Park, it
is still geologically active, and it has the most
diverse plant life, including lots of pine
forest. The wild black-sand beaches contrast with
pastel-coloured colonial villages. Kids will be
fascinated by the water tunnels
(minas galerias) which transport water collected
by condensation at altitude to the villages and
plantations below.
7
Fuerteventura
Known as the island of eternal spring,
Fuerteventura, just like the rest of the Canary
Islands, is a favorite among travelers.
Positioned southwest of Lanzarote and east of
Gran Canaria, the second largest among the group,
boasts of the best and the most extensive white
sand beaches and the most playful Atlantic waves.
With tourism at the forefront of its economic
growth, the island has gradually seen
transformations of some of its sleepy seaside
suburbs into bustling resort towns. But what sets
it apart from its neighboring islands is the
number of quiet and unspoiled traditional
villages where time seems to stand still.
8
La Gomera
Known as Isla Magica, La Gomera lives up to its
moniker and continue to enchant visitors with its
natural wonders and perpetual summer-like
weather. It is the second smallest of the Canary
Islands cradling lush ancient forests,
traditional villages, and unique culture. An
unspoiled land, so beautiful and captivating,
its no wonder those whove visited promise to
return or stay a while longer.
9
El Hierro
El Hierro, the smallest and wildest of the Canary
Islands, is the least tourist congested island in
the archipelago. Its location on the westernmost
part of Europe made people in the ancient times
believe that it was the edge of the Earth. Today,
with the perfect blend of ever-changing terrain,
rich cultural heritages, and historic villages,
the explicit edge-of-the-world feel still hangs
in the air.
