playa blanca lanzarote
I think Corralejo is the best resort in the Canaries… but maybe I'm biased
Rio de Palmas, Fuerteventura. This valley and its village of the same name is one of the most beautiful areas on the island
As the name suggest, the boomtown-style resort of Playa del Ingles is popular with the English. Charming or old world it is not, but for teens and families looking for fun, plenty of restaurant and bar choices, not to mention duty-free shopping malls and water sports, step this way. Nightlife revolves around the clubs and cocktail bars of the Kasbah Centre.
There are nice water parks in Gran Canaria, keeping children and adults amused all day, including dozens of slides and swimming. Playa del Ingles is packed with bars, pubs and clubs so plenty of nightlife. There is a fine choice of shops where visitors on holiday can indulge in some duty free delights. Riu Palace Maspalomas is a good hotel as the staff are very freindly, the bedrooms are large, clean and tidy. It's got a nice view balcony, with the beuty of the sun shining your direction.
A truly cosmopolitan place to explore. I was amazed at the number of different nationalities are there... Korean, Indian, African, Russian, Chinese and many more. I guess all part of being on the old (and modern) trading routes?
The youngest of the island’s three key resorts, facilities and fun are in plentiful supply in Costa Teguise. Clean beaches serve up all sorts of water sports, while a water park and an 18-hole golf course are on the doorstep. Colourful bars and terraced restaurants provide the nightlife.
mount timafaya in lanzarote has spectacular views, stunning scenery and wonderful atmosphere. The geysers shooting waters are truly spectacular, a natural wonder not to be missed! the fantastic restaurant offers mouthwatering food such as steaks.
Lively Las Americas hums with life around the clock. Cheap food and drink and duty-free shops spur many into action, while tennis, bowling, go-karts and bungee jumping complement a full list of water sports. You can even swim with dolphins in the Aqua Park! Mega-clubs and pubs named after soccer stars line the area known as The Patch.
Chill out comletely in Teide National Park in Tenerife. Truly stunning and nothing around for miles. Put on your ipod and just walk and walk... perfect.
