The best beaches of the canary islands


The Canary archipelago is one of the favourite holiday destinations not only for the rest of Spaniards but also for thousands of foreign tourists who come to the islands in search of the best climate, beautiful beaches and an incredible atmosphere that allows you to choose between relaxation and non-stop action.

If you enjoy your holidays there these days, you can’t miss a visit to some of the best beaches on the islands:

– Las Teresitas: This beautiful beach surrounded by high mountains is the only white sand beach in the north of Tenerife, although it has actually been brought from the Sahara to cover the dark natural sand of the beach. Even so, the huge bay is spectacular thanks to its tropical palm trees and crystal clear water of the highest quality.

– El Médano: Also in Tenerife, this beach of volcanic sand is ideal for all kinds of tourists, whether they are looking for relaxation or leisure and action. It offers a beautiful and atmospheric promenade along the coast.

– Las Canteras: This is the most popular beach in Las Palmas. Three kilometres long, this beach of golden sand and crystal clear waters is surrounded by a long promenade where you will find an excellent range of leisure activities.

– Playa Santiago: In addition to a beautiful coastline, this beach offers a beautiful and varied seabed that is worth exploring among rocks and caves.

– Cofete: This beach in Fuerteventura is one of the most beautiful in the whole archipelago. In addition to an incredible environment of green vegetation and high mountains, the beach offers an excellent quality for bathers thanks to its clean waters, its soft golden sand and a good lifeguard service.

– Maspalomas: An unforgettable setting where the beach merges with the magnificent desert dunes at one end of the bay. To miss it is a real sin.

– Las Conchas: This paradisiacal beach is an ideal place for a relaxing day; in addition to its magnificent natural conditions, Las Conchas offers privileged views of the uninhabited islands of Montaña Clara and Alegranza.

Other beautiful beaches are Papagayo, Famara, Las Américas, La Francesa or Sotavento.
