Canary Islands & Majorca


With sunshine throughout the year and an average temperature of 21 degrees, the Canary Islands are the ideal destination for warm winter sun or a blissful summer escape. The Balearic Islands offer picture postcard beaches, fabulous historical sights and breathtaking mountainous scenery. All with an ideal Mediterranean climate.

Tenerife

Probably the best known island in the Canaries, Tenerife has long been popular for its fine scenery, mild climate and countless tourist attractions. Situated midway along the north coast, Puerto de la Cruz is the oldest resort on the island and has retained some Spanish colonial charm. In the south of the island is Playa de Las Américas, a tourist magnet filled with attractions. The deep ravines of San Miguel stretch down to the coast, where the marina and golf courses are key features. The charming Puerto de Santiago is situated on the Island’s west-coast offering serene coastlines and a relaxed inland atmosphere.

Lanzarote

The easternmost island in the Canaries has long been a popular holiday destination. Puerto del Carmen on the south coast offers numerous daytime and evening attractions. Playa Blanca is quieter and more traditional, perfect for those looking to relax.

Fuerteventura

Expansive beaches of white sand and clear turquoise  waters make Fuerteventura the perfect island for a relaxing break. Corralejo is the largest resort on the island and has a wide sandy beach, shops and restaurants. Costa Antigua is a small resort which offers quiet tree-lined streets and is set against a backdrop of hills.

Gran Canaria

An island of contrasts, Gran Canaria is known as much for its beaches, as its mountain ravines and rocky cliffs. Playa del Inglés caters for all tastes with long beaches and vibrant nightlife. On the southern tip of the island, Maspalomas is quieter and enjoys a sandy beach backed by dunes. Playa Taurito is a hidden gem tucked away between volcanic hills & offers desert-like dunes, black sands & quiet, azure waters.

Majorca

The largest of the Balearics, this stunning island offers beautiful beaches, a fabulous historical capital and an ideal Mediterranean climate. Enjoy the clear sea and sands of the former fishing village of Cala d’Or on the East coast, relax on the endless white sand at Palma Nova or explore bustling Magaluf.

Taxes - The Balearic Parliament has introduced a Sustainable Tourism Tax which is applicable to all guests  and all types of accommodation. Please ask for full details.

CANARY ISLANDS & MAJORCA CUISINE

Canarian cooking combines traditional Spanish recipes with influences from Africa and Latin America. Known for freshness, the volcanic soil and warm climate provide an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables. The surrounding Atlantic Ocean offers up a variety of fish and seafood, while the inland hills offer the perfect rearing ground for pork, rabbit and goat for the hearty meat stews these islands are famous for. Balearic cuisine is similar to Catalan and is rich in seafood, vegetable stews, cured meat and of course, paella. Try Vieja a La Plancha (grilled parrot fish) served with Papas Arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) and Mojo Verde (green sauce - made with olive oil, garlic, vinegar, salt & coriander).
