Best places to go in the Canary’s right now

Looking for a bit of sun, sea, and sand this winter? With the weather getting gloomier around this time of the year, it is understandable that people are craving some sun. There are few better places for this during the colder months than the Canary Islands.

Thanks to the geographical position off the coast of Africa and close to the equator, you can enjoy beautiful weather here throughout the entire year. With eight main islands to choose from - and each with its own attractions and character - it can be hard to know which to pick. Here are a few of the best places to visit right now.

Tenerife is the largest Canary Island and one with a huge amount to see and do on a trip here. It is well-known for its beaches and resorts, so if you want to spend time chilling on the beach or enjoying water sports, then Tenerife is a great choice. It is also home to Mt. Teide - the highest peak in Spain - in the incredibly beautiful Teide National Park, a great place for rewarding hikes.

Lanzarote is most famous for its nightlife, so it is a great place to come if you like a wild night out and you are coming with a group of friends. It is not all clubs and cocktails, though, as Lanzarote also has beautiful beaches, breathtaking volcanic landscapes, caves, gardens, and much more to explore. This means that Lanzarote has something for everyone to go along with a lovely climate at this time of the year.

Gran Canaria is a lively island with a fantastic capital city - Las Palmas. Here, you can enjoy duty-free shopping, tantalizing food and drink, and gambling at the Casino Las Palmas. If you want to brush up on your skills, you can always practice casino games online. You can find online pokies at reputable casinos with impressive themed games, such as Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight, and Planet of the Apes. The top casinos will also have strong security features, a range of patent options, and bonuses to take advantage of.

Fuerteventura is the place to be
if you want to chill on the beach or try water sports and activities. It is the second-largest Canary Island, best known for its sandy beaches, which spread across over 150km. When you aren’t on the beach or in the ocean, you can explore the charming old town of Betancuria or head to Corralejo for a night on the town.

El Hierro
is the smallest island and the furthest west, which makes it a good alternative to the major islands. The quaint capital of Villa de Valverde has a real charm to it with traditional homes and buildings. It is also somewhere known for its sustainability with the El Hierro Biosphere Reserve and many eco-hotels.

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to the Canary Islands, but the above are a few of the best places to visit right now if you are craving sun, sea, and sand.
