Holidays in the Canary Islands

When it comes to holidaying in the Canary Islands there are plenty of different holiday experiences on offer. Whether you opt for holidays to Lanzarote and soak up its craggy volcanic landscape, spend time on Fuerteventura’s beautiful sandy beaches with the latest bestseller, or take a trip to Tenerife’s spectacular Mount Teide National Park, a holiday in the Canary Islands promises to be a diverse experience that will leave you with many wonderful memories.

Happily, this sun-drenched archipelago is a popular holiday destination which makes it easily accessible and affordable too.  Take Tenerife for example. Beyond its reputation as a top spot for nightlife with a world-famous clubbing scene, Tenerife appeals for many more reasons and has become a great destination for all types of holidays. Families in particular come to the quieter resorts for its great family entertainment, water parks, local activities and excellent hotels with facilities for all ages.

For those on a budget, you won’t have to look too far to find cheap Tenerife offers. If you choose to go down the do-it-yourself route you’ll find plenty of low-cost scheduled flights and a wide range of accommodation on the island, on everything from self-catering and room-only apartments to full-board and all-inclusive hotels. Or you could choose the easy route and opt for a package holiday where your accommodation, flights and resort transfers are all included in the cost.

With a package break you’ll often find many heavily discounted holidays, especially as you get closer to the departure date. Tour operators prefer to sell the packages at rock-bottom prices rather than let the hotel rooms go vacant, so you can usually grab yourself a great deal just by holding out and booking a week or two prior to departure. It might mean you have less choice but if price is top of your agenda, it’s usually well worth it.
