Canary Islands

The Canary Islands offer a varied and dramatic landscape. With year-round perfect temperatures, the Canary Islands are the ideal winter charter destination, offering everything from subtropical grenery to Lanzarote's lavafields.  An ever popular destination for kitesurfers, windsurfers and surfers alike, the Canary Islands are also a diver's paradise with over 350 varieties of fish. Or, if you're searching for a bit of relaxation, why not head to one of the islands' sandy beaches or sea-front cocktail bars?

Suggested Itinerary

1)Embark Santa Cruz, Tenerife – Capital city of Tenerife. Only 30 minutes from the airport. Don’t miss the chance to explore this vibrant city. Its rows of brightly coloured buildings are punctuated with surprising bursts of greenery or relaxing water features. Peruse the capital’s quirky shops or soak up some culture in one of the local museums.

2)San Miguel, Tenerife -  Enjoy a relaxing afternoon at anchor or head ashore for a day  on one of Tenerife’s stunning beaches. If you are feeling adventurous, why not hike the Monumento Natural de Montaña Amarilla or head further inland to discover the charm of San Miguel Town where the vine covered terraces embellish the landscape of deep valleys and towering volcanic cones.

3)Puerto de la Estaca, El Hierro – This remote island is diverse and beautiful with fantastic view points and majestic pine forests. Venture to the capital of Valverde and experience the Canary Islands at their most authentic. With a population of roughly 6 000 people, the island is untouched by mass tourism, but its stunning views and peaceful towns make it a jewel in the Canary Islands’ crown.

4)San Sebastian, La Gomera -  San Sebastian on La Gomera was the starting point for Columbus on his first voyage. It has an idyllic town centre with pedestrian friendly street that weave their way amongst the coloured buildings and shaded plazas. Spend the night anchored in Puerto de Playa Santiago and savor the local Gomera cuisine or explore the Garajonay National Park.

5)Santa Cruz de la Palma –  Despite being the Island’s Capital, Santa Cruz de La Palma is a pictoresque town that lines the waterfront and has a stunning green backdrop. Santa Cruz was once a vital port in the Spanish Empire, linking Europe to the New World. Step ashore to explore the Museo Naval which is set inside a concrete replica of Christopher Columbus’ Santa Maria. Later, sit back and relax with a coffee on The Plaza Alemeda or peruse the local markets where the produce still bears witness to the town’s vital links with the Americas.

6)Las Palmas, Gran Canaria – Co-Capital of the Canary Islands ( alongside Santa Cruz de Tenerife) Las Palmas has the buzz of a mainland Spanish city but the charm and diversity of the island towns. Spanned by Playa de las Canteras, there’s always the potential for a dip between shopping and sightseeing.

7) Return to Santa Cruz, Teneriefe.
