Sporty and adventurous couples will discover plenty of outdoor activities: On land you can hike along signposted footpaths that criss-cross the islands, from easy trails to mountain treks, or hire mountain bikes to explore the beautiful scenery. The sea promises a host of water-based activities: Go scuba diving and marvel at more than 350 species of fish and the odd shipwreck or two; or pump up the adrenalin by kite surfing, windsurfing and surfing – all are big attractions in the Canary Islands. Or take a more leisurely pace with a camel or horse ride, or round of golf.
Be sure to take a whale-watching excursion and be amazed as families of whales swim alongside your boat.
Time to relax
Those who simply want to fly and flop will find plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind in the Canary Islands, and of course, the most relaxing spot is down on the beach. From the soft rolling dunes in Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria to the wide arcs of golden sand in Tenerife and the black volcanic beaches – the shores here take some beating. You can also enjoy Thalassotherapy and spa pampering at a choice of Thalassotherapy Centres and hotel spas on all the islands.
