Every year millions of people are attracted to the Canary Islands by the wide range of things to do: relax on the beach, play golf, surf, dive into the sea, sail, hike through the wilderness, etc. While everyone comes for different reasons they all have one thing in common: Shopping.

Whatever you like and whatever your budget you'll find it in the varied shops of the Canary Islands. Rummage through market stalls, spend the evening in a shopping centre or find traditional Canarian products at local shops.


Thanks to unique Canarian tax rules the islands have a low sales tax rate of just 7%. This is far lower than anywhere else in Europe and means better prices on almost anything you want to buy. You get more for less.

Many sell local handicrafts and produce, antiques, and second hand goods like furniture and household items. Even if you're not planning to buy anything a trip to the market is a lovely way to explore villages and old towns.
