Water so blue you’ll think you’re in the Caribbean, white powdery sand, hidden coves and an unparalleled atmosphere and gastronomy. The Balearic Islands are the set of islands where we all dream of going. Ibiza, Menorca or Formentera, which of the Spanish islands do you prefer? Remember that Formentera has Ses Illetes beach, one of the best beaches in the world!
Santa Cruz of Tenerife
The Canaries are the most southern archipelago in Spain, and they’re all the more remarkable because of it. In Tenerife, you can climb Mount Teide, the highest peak in the country. You can swim in Charco Azul in El Hierro, trek between volcanoes in La Palma and discover the wild beaches of La Gomera. Book a B&B, and you’ll find that the Canary Islands are much more than good weather and beaches.
Three small islands off the Spanish coast make up this Canary Island province, and each one has something spectacular far beyond their beautiful beaches. Tour the Dunes of Maspalomas in Gran Canaria, get to know the Isla de Lobos in Fuerteventura and visit the Cactus Garden in Lanzarote. Each island has something unique, so choose the one you like the most or go island hopping across them all!
Just 30 minutes by boat from Lanzarote is the small La Graciosa, which belongs to the Chinijo archipelago. This beautiful island in Spain has the largest marine reserve in Europe. It has endless virgin beaches, fishing villages and volcanic landscapes to amaze. The 8th island of the Canary Islands is not paved, so you can only explore it on foot or by bicycle, a feature which makes it even more unique!
In the lower part of the Rías Gallegas are the Cíes Islands, an archipelago of islands known as the Galician paradise. And you’ve probably never heard of them! The best way to experience these beautiful European islands is to stay in Baiona or Cangas and travel by boat from there. Book a B&B and discover la isla bonita!
