Apartments in the Canary Islands

A vacation rental on the islands of eternal spring

The Canary Islands, located just off the coast of Morocco, are among the most popular and varied destinations in Europe. The four main islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote offer the largest number of holiday resorts. Nevertheless, the focus is on the volcanic island of Tenerife, which is best developed for tourism. In the island capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife as well as in picturesque coastal towns like Costa del Silencio in the south, Buenavista del Norte in the west and Punta del Hidalgo in the north you will find numerous apartments, apartments and fincas. Those who like it a little quieter can book a apartment or a vacation rental on the smaller islands La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. Especially nature lovers and adventurers looking for peace and quiet will get their money's worth, especially as the smaller islands are less frequented and hide numerous secrets like old pirate caves. Surfers, on the other hand, prefer a vacation rental on the windswept Fuerteventura coastline, especially as it offers ideal conditions for surfing.

Travelers and Activities

Active holidays in the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are a dream destination for active holidaymakers. This is also due to the varied beaches, sometimes in white Caribbean garb and sometimes in fascinating black. While shallow bays create ideal conditions for a bathing holiday with the children thanks to their almost non-existent waves, the powerful waves and winds on the rougher stretches of coast provide fantastic conditions for surfing, sailing and kiting. Alternatively, you can book a diving course right on the spot and descend into the fascinating depths of the Atlantic at the side of an experienced guide. If you prefer to spend your active holiday on land, the Canary Islands have many opportunities to do so. The island of Tenerife, known as the Mecca for cyclists, stands out here. Get into the saddle and enjoy the breathtaking volcanic, coastal and mountain scenery as the sea breeze blows around you. Particularly recommendable here are routes such as the route up to Spain's highest mountain, the Teide. The cycle routes on Lanzarote are just as beautiful but much flatter, where you can explore lava fields on the "Round of Teguise" or take a round through the valley of a thousand palm trees to the cactus park. Hikers and nature lovers, on the other hand, feel particularly at home in the tropical forests of La Gomera. Here, the routes "San Sebastian - Lomo Fragoso" and "Degollada de Peraza - El Cedro" with their picturesque views are tempting.

Did you know that the Canary Islands is the place with the most hours of sunshine in Europe? In the summer months the sun shines even up to eleven hours.

Things to know

Regular events

There is also no shortage of technical highlights in the Canary Islands. Gran Canaria, for example, is famous for its almond blossom festival "Almendos en Flor" in February and the carnival which lasts several weeks. Also well known is the Rally de Canaris held in Gran Canaria, the apricot blossom festival celebrated on several islands, and the day of the patron saint of fishermen in Las Palmas on 16 July. Also on Tenerife vacationers expect a multicolored Potpourri at Events, which reaches from the splendid processions in the Holy Week over the farmer celebration in August up to the Canarian Folkfest "Sabandeno" in September.

Best travel time

Thanks to their exposed location and proximity to the equator, the Canary Islands are in principle worth a trip all year round. Swimming is also possible on all islands both in the summer and winter months, as the water temperature of the Atlantic does not fall below the 17-degree mark and thus always reaches the temperature level of the summer North Sea. Those who want to rent an apartment on Gran Canaria should, however, arrive between March and October, as the local rainfalls between November and February are more violent than on the neighbouring islands.
