Where are the Canary Islands?

Even though Canary Islands belong to Spain, they are pretty far from the mainland Spain. As you can see in the map of the Canary Islands they in the Atlantic Ocean and are much closer to Morocco. Due to the fact that they are close to the equator and are surrounded by water, the climate is very warm in winter but it never gets extremely hot – which makes it a perfect holiday destination for families throughout the year.

Even though they are close to Africa, the culture is European and the islands are extremely safe. The local people speak in Spanish, but there are expats from all Europe and therefore you can speak in English in all the touristic places.

Things to do in the Canary Islands

The second best thing about the Canary Islands (after the amazing weather) is that all the islands are not far from each other and you can go from one island to another by boat and see dolphins and whales on your way! Apart from that, all the islands have UNESCO protected areas due to their exceptional landscapes and biodiversity. There are many water sports in all the islands and you can also just relax in one of the many beaches.

When to go to the Canary Islands?

The weather is really good throughout the year in the Canary Islands. In the months of June, July and August the temperatures are the highest and it is the busiest season, all the hotels are full of families with children therefore many hotels are fully booked and the prices are higher. During May and September there is a fall in tourists and therefore the prices can be lower even though the weather is great. During October, November, January and February the islands fill up with elderly people as the temperatures are warm but not too hot. It is a great time to come to the islands as the weather in the rest of Europe gets cold and Canaries become a perfect place for a short escape to the summer. December, March and April are also high seasons in the Canary islands when the prices are higher due to Christmas and Easter holidays.
