One of the most eagerly-awaited seasons is beginning: spring is coming to the Canary Islands, although the difference is negligible because in this destination, a spring-like atmosphere can be felt all year long. The temperatures are always mild and pleasant, which is why the best idea is to wear sandals in order to enjoy a day on the beach, while people are still wearing jumpers and coats in other countries.
Surfing on the Canary Islands
The Canary Islands are great for people who love the sea and the beach. There are several sweet spots for surfing and catching the best waves around the eight islands. The top islands for practising this exciting sport are Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, with their long, strong waves, but without forgetting Gran Canaria and Tenerife, with their celebrated waves, held in high esteem by the experts, although the fact is, many beaches on the Canary Islands generate waves for all levels.
Surfing in the Canary Islands has become a huge attraction for the top professionals, who come every year to important international competitions, like ASP’s World Qualifying Series or the Red Bull Rival championship.
Leisure parks for a great time
Fun is measured in smiles, and it multiplies if they are shared. The Canary Islands have a treasure trove of parks to be visited with family and friends: whizzing down slides at top speed, enjoying a killer whale show or strolling through a wild west village are just some of the leisure options they offer us. You can also visit zoos and aquariums, theme parks like Sioux City or the Angry Birds Activity Park, and water parks like the impressive Siam Park, the largest one in Europe and one of the best in the world.
When evening comes, the day still holds incredible sunsets in store for us. Some places for enjoying beautiful twilights are the beach of Famara, (Lanzarote), very beautiful when the tide is out, La Restinga (El Hierro), from the Sea of Calm (Mar de las Calmas), or the wild beach of Benijo (Tenerife), featured in innumerable photo reports.
