The Canary Islands are a Spanish island group in the Atlantic off the west coast of Africa. There are seven islands but the most popular ones to visit are Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Tenerife.
There is much to see and do on them and all can be easily explored by hiring a car.
The other islands of La Palma, La Gomera and El Hiero are not as easy to get to but La Palma has a ferry connection to Tenerife which you may use if your car-hire company will allow it. Lanzarote and Fuerteventura have a similar ferry connection so with car hire in the Canary Islands you could explore all of these islands.
The four main islands are known for their vibrant nightlife and are home to many traditional holiday resorts offering every type of amenity. However, there are also some amazing remote beaches where you can go swimming, diving, wind surfing and kite surfing. Hiring a car means you can go beyond the tourist resorts and experience some of the real Canary Islands. As you drive inland you will see volcanic landscapes, sub-tropical plants, mountains and cliff views, as well as smaller, unspoilt villages and towns where you can try the local cuisine and mix with locals.
People who holiday on the Canary Islands generally fly into Gran Canaria (LPA), Fuerteventura (FUE), Lanzarote (ACE), Tenerife South (TFS) and La Palma (SPC) from most UK airports. It is easy to take advantage of Canary Islands car hire on your holiday and collect a car from any airport.
A key attraction of the Canary Islands is the weather, which makes it a year-round destination, although the most popular time to visit is April to June.
