Some say that these islands are the lost continent of Atlantis; that it’s part of its highest summits, and that it could possibly be the place that Plato described in his writing—the thought of this idea alone is already saying that this city is something out of the ordinary.
This place is dotted by crystal clear beaches, hundreds of great volcanoes, picturesque mountains, and rich forests. If a year-long sunshine is what you’re looking for, the Canary Islands (Atlantic territory Spain near Morocco and Cape Verde) can give it to you. Ask anyone who’s ever been here and they would most likely reply with something about the place offering perfect weather. Referred to as “The Land of Eternal Spring,” this place is home to seven main islands that provide visitors with many spots to choose from: Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.
The great thing about the islands here is that even if they’re relatively close to one another, each one offers unique features. This means that you will not be wasting your time if you wish to explore all of them. Hit the famous Palaya de Ingles, a beach in Gran Canaria. Whether you’re here for laid-back holiday or an adventurous trip, this place can offer you both—so if you want to sunbathe all you want for a whole day, and do some waters sports on the next, you will have no problem.
Must-see is the Caldera de Taburiente, one of the biggest volcanic craters in the world. Visiting the capital Santa Cruz de la Palma will also give you the opportunity to explore picturesque landscapes. If you’re looking for adventure, you’d be thrilled to know that there are lots of spots to do some sports here. Head over to the Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura if you’re looking for spots best for surfing, jetskiing, scuba diving, and windsurfing.
In Tenerife, two of the great spots to hike are the Teide National Park or Parque Rural de Anaga. Also, Tenerife is home of the old town of La Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so it’s also recommended to stop by and check this place out. If you want to see breathtaking volcanic landscapes, the volcano crater at Mount Teide (the third tallest volcano in the world) is where you want to go.
You will also have the best time at the volcanic island of Fuerteventura, a place famous for kite surfing. If you like to go and party for a night or two, this place also has so many spots to choose from.
This will most certainly make a holiday like no other, and you do not need to worry about rainfalls that would just easily show up and ruin your vacation—the subtropical climate of this place assures a sunny backdrop and therefore, you have so much time to explore it. Whether you believe in the lost city of Atlantis or just want to spend some time in a little paradise, this place will definitely deliver.
