A Spanish archipelago populated with incredible volcanic landscapes and excellent beaches, the Canary Islands provide year-round sunshine and popular resorts for a relaxing escape.

In particular, Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote are three areas we love as they offer fantastic luxury Canary Islands holidays. The Mediterranean climate, paired with crystal-clear waters and stunning views, are too irresistible for anyone to ignore. That's not to mention the brilliant Carnaval de Santa Cruz, either.

Similarly, Tenerife Holidays are incomplete without a trip to Mount Teide National Park as it's also irresistible. Featuring the highest point in Spain and access to stunning scenery, you'll create incredible memories. Not only that, but the warm temperatures make it an ideal short-haul holiday in January.

Alternatively, the Canary Island of Lanzarote and its fun Costa Teguise water park may tempt you instead. If you're looking for luxury family holiday destinations, the otherworldly landscape home to Timanfaya National Park provides activities such as camel rides while the family-friendly hotels have golf courses.

There are also a host of stunning beaches to relax on during your stay. Playa de las Américas is renowned for its natural scenery while Playa Blanca has gorgeous golden sands. Playa del Inglés features calm waters and the black sand beach of Playa El Bollullo is perfect for unique holidays in the Canary Islands.

Away from the glorious heat, you can find shade at one of the many luxury Canary Islands hotels in Costa Adeje, Puerto Del Carmen or Caleta de Fuste. These types of charming towns are found across all eight Spanish islands and are family favourites thanks to their fantastic beachfront settings and historical sites.
