Holidays in the Canaries - year round fun in the sun holiday hotspots!
Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are just four of the most popular Canary Islands, lying in the Atlantic off the coast of North Africa. Renowned as true pleasure paradises, the Canary Islands come into their own as brilliant winter sun destinations. Enjoying year-round balmy temperatures, lovely sunny weather in the Canaries is just one of the benefits of visiting a destination which can be delightfully warm for all 365 days.
Holidays to the Canaries are also hugely popular due to the great infrastructure in each of the islands, Gran Canaria is perhaps the best known to Irish holidaymakers and is a real mecca for shopping and sunshine. The Canaries other "hot sister" is Lanzarote, beloved also of Irish visitors where the old harbour of Puerto del Carmen can resemble an Irish village in high season! Travelling to the Canaries, we can never forget the gorgeous island of Tenerife where the landscape differs from north to south, but the genuine Canary Island welcome never falters. More the "newcomer" on the block, Fuerteventura is a Canary Island with attitude. A windsurfer's delight, Fuerteventura has endless miles of unspoiled beaches.
Doubtless, Canary Island holidays are hard to beat. Regular flights from Dublin and Cork on a year-round basis make all the popular Canary Islands easily accessible and, with flight durations of only 4 hours approx, a holiday in the Canaries should be flagged on every calendar as an annual "must do".
