Stay at a luxury hotel in the Canary Islands with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to unwind on black-sand beaches, play golf overlooking the Atlantic and drink volcanic wines under the stars.
Luxury Canary Islands beaches
Stretch out on Tenerife’s southern gold-sand beaches. On the island’s wild north coast, Los Gigantes’ cliffs rear above the flinty Atlantic. Breezy Costa Teguise attracts windsurfers to Lanzarote’s volcanic coast. For the most secluded bays in the Canary Islands, head to Formentera, where the sand is as fine as sugar. Maspalomas’ rippling dunes are best explored by camel on Gran Canaria.
Luxury things to do in the Canary Islands
Golfers perfect their swing at a 27-hole course with dazzling ocean views on Tenerife’s exclusive Costa Adeje. Boats sail from nearby Puerto Colón in search of pilot whales and playful dolphins. At Tenerife’s volcanic centre, a cable car glides above the clouds to 3718m Mount Teide, Spain’s highest peak. Geysers hiss in Lanzarote’s lunar-like Timanfaya National Park, which you can tour by Jeep safari.
Gourmet Canary Islands
Sip an aperitif as the sun sets over the Atlantic on the Costa Adeje on Tenerife’s south coast. Rising above volcanic vineyards is Bodegas Monje winery, where you can taste full-bodied red wines and learn to cook Canarian style. Savour Canary Island dishes like whitefish with peppery mojo sauce and wrinkly papas arrugadas potatoes in Tenerife’s capital Santa Cruz. Gran Canaria’s most romantic spot is Puerto de Mogán, where bougainvillea-draped lanes lead to a whitewashed harbour and candlelit fish restaurants.
