Canary Islands reinforces its commitment to the safety and peace of mind of its visitors.
With subtropical landscapes and luxurious vegetation, desert areas, vertiginous cliffs and golden beaches, the Canary Islands have everything to offer you. Lanzarote, the land of lava and fire, Fuerteventura, with its nod to the Sahara, Tenerife, dominated by its fascinating volcano and Grand Canaria, with multitudes of magnificent beaches… they are all quite different. But each one of them offers a dazzling sun and a mild climate which guarantees a successful seaside holiday for all ages.
Declared a ‘Natural Biosphere Reserve’ by UNESCO in 1993, the unique volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote attract many visitors. Its superb beaches and crystal-clear water are wonderful places for swimming, surfing and diving under a brilliant sun. The profile of its quintessential architecture was raised after featuring in the original works of local artist César Manrique and is another attraction of this popular destination. Tourism on Lanzarote is essentially concentrated around Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise.
Located in the south of the island, approx. 35 km from the airport. The whole area of Playa Blanca is connected via a promenade (still just a single path in some places) and includes two beaches of fine, white sand, ‘Playa Dorada’ and ‘Playa Flamingo’. Another popular area is the modern ‘Marina Rubicon’, with several shops, bars and restaurants making it a pleasant place for a stroll.
Ferries leave from the port at regular intervals for day-long excursions to the north of Fuerteventura (Corralejo).
The famous and unspoilt beaches of Papagayo are near Playa Blanca (also a nature reserve), with crystal-clear water and a magnificent white sand beach (distance approx. 5 km, accessible via a path, payment required).
There is a wonderful view of Fuerteventura and the island of Los Lobos as you leave Playa Blanca.

Puerto del Carmen is situated to the south of Arrecife, approx. 7 km from the airport. This old fishing village was transformed into a seaside resort with discos, cafés, boutiques and restaurants. It retains its charm of old in the narrow streets around the port where there are some excellent fish restaurants.
