And there’s more …


Tenerife may be the biggest of the Canary Islands but its neighbours also have plenty to off er.


Gran Canaria is often described as the miniature continent due to its varied landscape of long white sand beaches framing the rugged ravines of its interior — the setting for a number of ‘Spaghetti Western’ movies. Its southern coast is sunnier than


the north, while the east coast is fl at and dotted with pretty beaches — a stark contrast to the rocky west. The capital, Las Palmas, is noted


for its stylish colonial architecture, brightly painted buildings, history and culture, with the town’s old quarter Vegueta declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. The village of Puerto de Mogán,


referred to as ‘Little Venice’ due to its many canals, is also well worth a visit.


Lanzarote is awash with strikingly beautiful stretches of beach overlooked by spectacular cliff s. One of the island’s most popular


attractions is Sub Fun Tres, a submarine safari that leaves from the marina in Puerto Calero. The water


clarity and variety of marine life off the island’s coast off er a colourful journey into the Atlantic depths. Back on land, Lanzarote reveals


many other natural wonders such as the Atlantida Tunnel — at over 5,000 feet long, the longest volcanic tunnel in the world. Then there’s Timanfaya National Park, another of the Canary Islands’ volcanic spectacles, where in places the temperature just six feet below you rises to a scorching 600 centigrade.
