    Thanks to their location off the coast of north-western Africa, the beaches of the Canary Islands attract tourists in their masses year-round. But this archipelago of volcanic Spanish islands is abundant in natural wonders, from Mount Teide (a World Heritage site) in Tenerife to the Maspalomas Dunes on Gran Canaria.

    Sun, sand and sea aside, the Canary Islands are famous for their rugged natural landscapes, historical significance and diverse cultures. Gran Canaria and Tenerife are the largest Canary Islands, but nature-lovers should visit La Palma and observe breathtaking views from the iconic Tilos Bridge. Whether you want to hike a volcano, relax on a beach or feast on local delights such as Canarian wrinkly potatoes, the Canary Islands have something for you.

    • Fuengirola

      Fuengirola basks besides the seaside in southern Spain's Costa del Sol, attracting a healthy mix of families, couples, and soon-to-be expats. While its sprawling beach is a haven for swimmers, sunbathers, and water sports junkies, the town also boasts nearby golf courses, and a great selection of shops and restaurant.

      Unsurprisingly for this portion of Spain, there's also a booming nightlife, particularly on the beachfront. There's a handful of attractions too, including Biopar Fuengirola, a zoo featuring animals from Asia and Africa, and Sohail Castle – a 10th-century Moorish fortress, which hosts festivals and a medieval market come summer.
