Make the Canary islands the right way!

The Canary Islands are commonly known as the islands with spring all year round. The archipielago is composed of eight islands (plus some smaller, uninhabited islets). The good things about the Canary islands is that each of the islands has a very different personality and offer something unique to be enjoyed. In case you thought they are all the same, great sunny destinations for year-round sunshine, we believe you should dig a bit deeper and discover which one would suit you best.

All eight islands share in common their volcanic origin but Tenerife, with its 40 miles of beaches to explore is very different to Fuerteventura, a paradise for surfers and watersports enthusiasts, or from Lanzarote, a paradise for hikes amonst volcano and lunarlike landscapes and excellent wines.

In this Canary islands guide we will try to answer to all your questions about which island is best suited for a given travel style, best things to enjoy at each island, hotel recommendations, top attractions, and much more.
