Cheap flights to Canary Islands

Once deemed as the poorest region in Spain, Canary Islands levelled up its game and set a whole new playground for tourists, who love nothing more but to bask in the goodness of sunshine while lying along the shoreline. A popular destination among Europeans, Canary Islands is home to famous beaches. The massive development in Canary Islands is brought in by the tourism sector, but other sectors such as the fishing and farming industry is also alive and booming. Here in Canary Islands, you can see locals tending to their crops or checking fish hauls. This goes on to show that despite the booming tourism industry, the simple and local living can be largely felt all over the place. However, the booming tourism industry also has its own downside: the dirt brought about by the construction soiled the fresh, clean water of the island, and as such, continuously depleting the island of its natural resources and attractive sights. Needless to say, this Atlantic territory of Spain is still a paradise to visit.

The best known city in Canary Island, Tenerife boasts of rugged natural beauty and lively nightlife scene. Here, you can visit Playa de Las Americas, a city primarily built for tourists. The famous black sand beaches (which resulted from volcanic eruptions) can be found here. Notably, the temperature of the beach is warm even if it’s night time already. While in Playa de Las Americas, you can opt for boat trips that allow you to watch whales from the ocean, as well as avail boat trips with glass bottom to enable you to see marine life. Some companies also organise scuba diving experience accompanied by a professional diver.

You can also go to San Cristobal de La Laguna, the oldest city in the island of Tenerife and a declared world heritage site. Here, you can find the oldest university in the islands, dominated by young university students. The beautiful historical centre, plus the noticeably cooler climate than other cities, is worth a trip.

One of the most popular tourist spots in Tenerife is the Los Cristianos for its sandy beaches. Here, you can shop and dine to a wide variety of pubs and clubs available. You can simply stroll through the street and be captivated with its local charm. At night, the scene gets even lovelier with the apparent vibe of night life.

How to get around within Canary Islands

The best way to explore most cities in the Canary Islands is by sea travel. Check Fred Olsen, Transmediterranea, and Armas companies, which offers frequent travel to the islands at best prices. Within the islands, land travel by bus is the best option, and buses in tourist routes are abundant so you can be assured that your destinations within the island are well covered. However, to see the remote regions of the island, driving a private car is the best option there is. In addition, a tram linking Santa Cruz bus station and La Laguna can also be taken as an alternate route option.

How to get there

To get into Canary Islands, you can fly into the two airports in Tenerife, the Tenerife South Reina Sofia International Airport (South/TFS), which is located approximately 60km away from Santa Cruz, or the Tenerife North Los Rodeos International Airport (North/TFN), which is closest to the capital. You can also fly in through the Gran Canaria International Airport in Gran Canaria. It is also possible to fly to other cities but they are relatively more expensive.

You can also get into the islands through the airports in Marrakech and Casablanca in Morocco, which serves regular flights to Tenerife.
