INTRODUCING THE CANARY ISLANDS
Sparkling in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Morocco, lie the Canary Islands. A subtropical climate, dazzling beaches and vibrant nightlife make this diverse archipelago the perfect year-round escape. Hike acres of sand dunes, discover national parks, see otherworldly lava fields or wonder at the imposing Mt. Teine volcano. Then stroll along a picture-perfect shoreline, returning to your boutique hotel for a cocktail or two.

Things to do
Clear skies and glorious sunshine make the Canary Islands a sun-lover’s paradise. From the dramatic black sands of Tenerife to hidden havens in El Hierro, the Canaries’ beaches are world-renowned. Unwind with a book, cool off with a swim in pure waters or head to a laid-back beach bar and watch the sun go down.
The archipelago’s rich volcanic soil supports a vast array of flora and fauna. Here, densely forested slopes of Canary Island Pine give way to bright white broom shrubs. Teide National Park, a World Heritage Site, is home to species only found in the Canaries. Life erupts everywhere across the islands as Mt. Teide, the world’s third-tallest volcano, looks on.
As night falls, the islands of Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife and Gran Canaria are transformed. Start the evening with cocktails in a boutique bar. Choose from an array of local restaurants offering everything from a casual bite to a gastronomic experience. Party the night away in trendy clubs before catching the sunrise as you meander home along the beach.
For a cultural fix, uncover the islands’ artistic heritage. See Cesar Manrique’s spectacular sculptures in Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, or the surreal paintings of Óscar Domínguez in Tenerife
