Title: Top Ten Canary Islands Beaches

Top Ten Canary Islands Beaches
If your view of the Canary Islands is one of
tourists fighting for space to put their towels
on sun loungers by a pool or directly on a beach,
then you haven't been to Fuerteventura. An island
where there are more goats than people. Where if
you do like to be by the seaside, you're going to
be in for a swell old time. Just shy of 10km
long, Corralejo, on Fuerteventura's north-east
tip, is flanked by a nature reserve made up of
sand dunes. There's a resort here too. For all
your home comforts.
El Bollullo
There's black magic at work on Tenerife. An
island who actually import sand from the nearby
Sahara desert to make its beaches more attractive
to tourists. Not so at the dark-as-night El
Bollullo, easily reachable from Puerto de la Cruz
in the north of the island. A world away from
the resorts of Las Americas and Los Cristianos,
there's no neon strip here. The chiringuito
(shack bar) on the rocks, though, serves the
freshest seafood. And is a great venue to watch
the sun go down with one beer or few.
El Inglés
There's Playa del Inglés, the resort. Featuring
1970s developments which are hardly
picture-postcard-friendly. Then there's Playa del
Inglés, the beach. A lovely 2.7km stretch of
golden sand which is home to the banana boat,
beloved of families with children, and jetskis
for the more daring tourist.
Discover a Lanzarote that's far from grotty on
the sands of Famara, an unspoilt beach on the
north-west of the island. Sheltered by mountains
just over 600 metres tall, Famara's popular with
surfers. Along with paragliders.
La Gomera's more famous for its Parque Nacional
de Garajonay. Whose near 4,000 hectares of forest
include 30m-tall laurels. It's not without its
beautiful beaches, however, with the
dramatically-set Hermigua in the north-east of
the island a real stunner. If conditions are too
choppy here, which they often can be, you can
always use the natural seawater pool instead.
Las Canteras
Las Canteras, the area is a Mini Havana with
streets of tightly-packed apartments, bars,
houses, and restaurants. Las Cantereas, the
beach, at 2.8km, is the longest on the island.
Located in the capital city of Las Palmas de Gran
Canaria, paradise doesn't get much more urban.
Las Conchas
Located on the totally tropical isle of La
Graciosa off the north coast of Lanzarote, Las
Conchas (The Shells) is the place to go to if you
really want to get away from it all. La Graciosa
was supposedly the inspiration for Robert Louis
Stevenson's Treasure Island. Glancing its
turquoise water and golden sand for the first
time, you'll soon see why.
Las Teresitas
The Canary palm trees on Tenerife's Las Teresitas
are more natural than the sand which is
transplanted from Africa. Catch the 910 bus from
the capital of Santa Cruz to Tenerife if you want
a break from driving. This northern beach belongs
to San Andres, a former fishing village which
houses some of the best fish and seafood
restaurants on the whole of the island.
At 2,710 metres, Maspalamos is the second-longest
beach on Gran Canaria. A mere 10 metres longer
than its neighbour, Playa del Inglés, it's famous
for its dunes. Dunes which are the perfect place
to go naked on Gran Canaria.
Close to the resort of Playa Blanca in the south
of Lanzarote, this beach is nevertheless tucked
away. Get there by a 15-minute drive from Playa
Blanca or by water taxi. Part of Los Ajaches
nature reserve, its delicate current is a hit
with snorkellers.
