Who doesn’t like the warmth of the sun beating down on them and sound of their kid’s laughter filling the air. The opportunity to wind down from the constant chaos that school runs, chores, work and bringing up a family can make a massive difference to re-charging everyone’s batteries. The Canary Islands have are the perfect solution.
Family holidays really are something to cherish, it’s where memories are made, experiences are shared and time, just seems to slow down. With no routines to follow, long lazy days in the beautiful sunshine, we’ve rounded up seven reasons why the Canary Islands are a sure-fire hit with families of all shapes and sizes.
The Canary Islands are the perfect getaway if you are looking for year-round sunshine and a journey that’s just a 4-4.5 hour flight from the UK, which is in fact closer to Africa (62 miles) than it is to Spain (1,700 miles). We would have thought it, considering the currency is Euros and the language is Spanish.
The Canaries are made up of seven islands; Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera. Each island has its own distinct personality; collectively they boast sandy and rocky beaches, water parks, resorts and beautiful landscapes. There really is something for everyone’s taste and so much to explore.
With prices starting from as little as £300 per person for 7 nights all-inclusive or self-catering for a family of four, we think this location is fantastic value for money.
