A versatile
summer

We begin with a classic for July holidays: endless days at the beach where all you have to think about is enjoying the sun, sand and sea. Whether you like beaches with all kinds of services or hidden coves where you feel like you are the only person around, you are sure to find what you are looking for here.

You can also make the most of the light this season for enjoying the cool freshness of nature and discovering the beautiful scenery of the islands along its extensive network of trails.

Viva the
El Carmen
festivities!

One of the most emotional ceremonies in honour of the patron saint of the sea is the sailors’ procession on La Graciosa– a little island to the north-west of Lanzarote. Although it has a surface area of no more than 30 km2 and houses only two villages, its inhabitants put all their heart into this celebration.

After the festivities, there is nothing like a dip in the turquoise waters of this very special island.

The windy season
begins

Your July holidays are one of the best times for getting out your sail or kite and taking to the waters of the Canary Islands. At this time of year, you will be accompanied by the trade winds and the coastal breeze will propel you through the waves. That is why several windsurf and kitesurf competitions take place during this period.
