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.
