The Canary Islands are visited by thousands of tourists each year. With the year round sun and mild temperatures the Canaries are the perfect holiday spot for both a Summer and Winter holiday destination.

Parque Natural de Corralejo
A protected Parque Natural de Corralejo is made up of beach dunes and stretch along the East Coast for around 10km. It is a famous spot amongst wind surfers and kite boarders.

As it can be know to be a windy spot the locals have added a fortresses of loose stones to help and protect sunbathers from the wind. It is free to enter and you can hire sun beds and umbrellas from outside the hotels.

Whale and Dolphin Watching
Sat on the end of the Playa de Los Cristianos beach are boats that offer two, three and five hour cruises for those that would like to experience whale and dolphin watching.

A favorite amongst many British here the cruises offer food, drink and let you have a quick dip in the ocean whilst out at sea.

Cable Car of El Teide
The famous Volcano on the Canaries biggest Island Tenerife. The cable car ride up El Teide is the easiest and most popular way to get to see the Volcano.

It takes only 8 minutes to get up there and the views are stunning. From the top you will see the islands of La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro sticking up from the Atlantic.

Camel Safari Park La Baranda
Now if you want to get into the swing of things and are looking for something a little different this is for you. Camel Safari Park has over 70 camels for that Oriental ride of a life time.

The site is surrounded in palm trees, avocado and citrus trees that give it that tropical feel. After working up an appetite you can enjoy a meal in the onsite restaurant.

Torre del Conde
Considered to be the Canary Islands most important military architecture. Torre del Conde in San Sebastián de la Gomera is a tower which sticks out in the middle of the valley.

Built in 1447, it was the first building to be built on any of the Islands. It is about the only one to have been perfectly preserved in its original state.

Pyramids de Güimar
The Pyramids de Güimar are in the town of Güímar on the southeast coast of Tenerife. There are five structures in the form of stepped pyramids.

You can also find the museum “Casa Chacona" with replicas of sculptures, models, ceramics, photographs and an auditorium with interesting projections.

Loro Parque
Loro Parque know in English as “Parrot Park" is a zoo located on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife . The park houses over 300 land, water and air species and claims to be one of the largest in Europe.

A great family day out, Loro Parque has the largest Shark Tunnel in Europe and has a Thailand village for a Oriental feel.

Country villas, cortijos and sea view apartments make perfect Canaries holiday rentals for you to stay in whilst you enjoy the many attractions that can be found throughout the Islands.
