CANARY ISLANDS, A FANTASTIC PARADISE
Jan 12, 2018
The Canary Islands are an Atlantic territory of Spain on the west coast of Africa. The Canary archipelago is formed by seven islands: Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. Every island is a beautiful destination worth of visiting. Here, we’ll tell you where you can stay to enjoy, even more, your stay in this fantastic paradise.
The island of Tenerife is the most popular and the largest of the seven. The weather is always warm and most travelers head to the south-western resorts of Los Cristianos, Playa de las Americas and Costa Adeje.
If you are looking for privacy and exclusivity, Royal Garden Villas combines the service and facilities of a boutique hotel in an exotic garden setting. This is possibly the most elegant and luxurious accommodation on Tenerife.
Gran Canaria is green and steep in the north, dry and flat in the south. The capital Las Palmas offers elegant culture at its Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno – but saves its best for the beach in the shape of Playa de las Canteras. You can experience Gran Canaria like a rockstar staying at one of its finest hotels like Grand Hotel Residencia.
Lanzarote is turning into a rather upmarket destination. The experience is all about staying in chic and spending your days cycling, walking, surfing or sampling the local wines. Popular with families, Playa Blanca has sweeping sea views towards neighbouring islands. Rooms are well-designed and spacious, and facilities include eight restaurants, a large spa and well-equipped children’s activity area.
Fuerteventura has a breathtaking, barren beauty and is a windsurfer’s mecca. Avanti Hotel Boutique started out as rather more modest accommodation when it opened. Now, it graces the pages of style magazines, representing Fuerteventura at its most fashionable.
The Spanish know La Palma as La Isla Bonita: “The Pretty Island”. If you are planning a quiet family getaway, you can stay at La Palma & Teneguía Princess, the best hotel swimming pool complex in the archipelago. But if you are looking for a more exclusive experience you can stay at Hotel San Telmo, a boutique hotel of just eight rooms with impeccable style and personal attention.
La Gomera is the archipelago’s best-kept secret and it’s a walkers’ paradise. You can stay at Hotel Gran Rey, the only hotel located directly on the seafront or at Hotel Rural Casa Los Herrera. Los Herrera is a rural boutique hotel in a converted 19th-century house.
El Hierro is the smallest and most westerly island of the Canarian archipelago. We recommend you to stay at Parador de El Hierro, a parador set between mountains and sea, on the island that was once considered the end of the world to appreciate the beauty of this island.
