Which is the best Canary Island for your holiday trip?

Unless you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to tour the whole archipelago, when you decide to visit the Canary Islands in Spain for the first time it will invariably take you some time to discern which island in the Canaries suits your interests and preferences best. Aside from the fact that they all originated from volcanic activity and common features such as their gastronomy and sub-tropical climate, it is safe to say that each Canary Island is a micro-world in itself, with its own pace and way of living, its unique landscape and its distinguishing lifestyle.

In this post, we are going to help you find out which is the best Canary Island to travel to according to your taste. For instance, water sports lovers and surfers normally choose Fuerteventura for their trip, while those seeking a peaceful retreat typically go to Lanzarote; Tenerife caters to the needs of luxury travellers and offers a wide choice of travel experiences and, on the other hand, Gran Canaria is more nature and culture-oriented. The minor islands in the Santa Cruz Province –El Hierro, La Gomera and La Palma- are primarily visited by hikers, adventure travellers, wine lovers and astronomy students.

All that being said, we must admit that we would lie if we did not acknowledge that all of them have something to make everyone happy, and so backpackers, vacation lovers, urban travellers, beach addicts, foodies, digital nomads, children and adults can find their small piece of paradise on earth regardless of the corner of this Spanish archipelago they land in. However, if your holiday trip will last for just a few days or a week in such a way that there won’t be too much time to explore, let us help you discover which the best destination in the Canary Islands is for you.

Gran Canaria

The municipalities in northern Gran Canaria preserve the charm of old customs and traditions related to architecture, gastronomy and handicrafts, so roaming its small towns and quarters is an ideal plan for the early mornings. Museums, theatres, shopping malls, city hotels and the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium await in its buzzing capital, all within short distance of Las Canteras, considered as one of the best urban beaches in the world, although if the typical island retreat is what you are after, you will certainly find it in the south: Playa del Inglés, Maspalomas and its popular dunes and Puerto de Mogán are some of our recommendations. If you are into walking tours and nature trips, know that there are hiking trails all over the island.

Lanzarote

Lanzarote is probably the island of the Canaries in Spain where the volcanic origin of the archipelago becomes more evident: lava stone deserted landscapes are common, creating a beautiful contrast with the small white houses and the pristine sea waters bordering them. For a beach trip, go to Playa del Papagayo, Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca or Famara, but do not forget to make time for a visit to Jameos del Agua, the Cesar Manrique Foundation, Timanfaya National Park or the Cactus Garden.

Tenerife

For many, Tenerife is the best Canary Island for a tourist trip due to the wide range of hotels and resorts catering to holiday goers and beach lovers located in Costa Adeje, Los Gigantes, Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz, for instance. Luxury travellers who appreciate VIP hospitality and parties may consider staying at the Hard Rock Tenerife hotel. This island is the largest one in the archipelago, and in turn home to the highest peak in Spain –Mount Teide-, in such a way that it combines different landscapes and even distinct climates.

Fuerteventura

Anybody who has visited Fuerteventura before is already acquainted with the fact that it is the place to go in the Canary Islands for water sports and surf lovers. Furthermore, the Corralejo Dunes National Park has been declared a Protected Natural Reserve of the Biosphere, and it is a mandatory stop when touring this island. With some other highlights like the Oasis Wildlife Park in the south, Fuerteventura is eminently residential and offers both self-catered apartments for visitors and 5-star hotels like the Gran Atlantis Bahia Real; for something in between, we recommend the coastal zone of Costa Calma.

La Gomera

Taking a trip to La Gomera can be a great choice knowing that, as one of the minor islands in the Santa Cruz Province of the Canaries, beaches such as Playa de Santiago, San Sebastián or Valle Gran Rey are considerably less crowded than the ones in the capital islands. Other highlights of a visit to La Gomera could be Garajonay Natural Park, a boat excursion for whale spotting or a hike up its green mountains.

El Hierro

El Hierro is the smallest of the Canary Islands and so we recommend that you include it as part of a tour to make the most of your trip. That being said, as a 100% sustainable island it is worth visiting but most of all worth taking care of. Take advantage of this opportunity to put responsible tourism into practice and enjoy its small towns, swim in its natural seawater pools, and climb to its many viewpoints to soak in the views of stunning protected virgin landscapes.

La Palma

As was the case with La Gomera, the beaches in La Palma island are hardly ever crowded and mostly frequented by locals: some of the best ones are Nogales, Charco Verde and Bajamar. La Palma or “the beautiful island” -as it is commonly referred to- invites you to immerse yourself in nature and tradition, as it boasts vast green areas, several viewpoints and the most typical canarian houses with their characteristic balconies. Some travellers schedule their trip to La Palma only to visit its Astronomical Observatory in Roque de Los Muchachos.

La Graciosa

For a long time, La Graciosa was considered just an islet of less than 800 inhabitants, but its unique beauty has finally led it to be recognised as the eight island in the archipelago of the Canary Islands, even attracting tourists to its lands. If you are planning a trip to La Graciosa in the Canaries, you may choose to stay either in a holiday apartment or in a hotel at the municipality of Teguise –Lanzarote– only one kilometre away.

Tenerife hotels for digital nomads and business travellers

Nivaria airport lounge in Tenerife North International

Do you like to spend the waiting time before your flight in passenger lounges? To many, the idea of staying away from the noise of the transit area inside the terminals, having a drink or two, indulging in the catering and relaxing with a view of the runway where planes land and take off is simply captivating. If you seek this kind of exclusivity and are travelling to Tenerife in the Canary Islands (Spain) whether for business or on holiday, know that there is a VIP lounge in TFN. For disambiguation purposes, we are going to talk about the airport lounge in Tenerife North airport –also known as Los Rodeos-, which serves the areas of Santa Cruz, Güimar, La Orotava, Puerto de la Cruz, Teide and even Masca and Los Gigantes, although these two involve a 90-minute car commute. On the other hand, the airport in the south of the islandTenerife South or Reina Sofia– is closer to the more touristy Costa Adeje as well as of El Medano and Las Galletas, and has its own VIP lounge for passengers too.

How to get access to the airport lounge in Tenerife North airport

This lounge is open to passengers of both Schengen and non-Schengen flights, including those flying to other islands within the Canarian archipelago. While first and business class flyers, holders of some credit cards and members of frequent traveller programs like Priority Pass may be granted courtesy access to this facility, anyone taking a departing flight out of Tenerife North International airport can purchase a pass to the Nivaria lounge at its entrance. The admission fee is 26,20 euros which can be paid using cash or by card.

Location and working hours of the Nivaria airport lounge in Los Rodeos

The airport lounge in Tenerife North is situated on the mezzanine after security, accessible by taking a lift you will find to your right once you have gone through the Duty Free walk-through store, or by going up the stairs found on the regional departures zone. It stays open from 6:15 to 22:30 every day of the week. In the event of suffering a flight delay, travellers can extend their visit to the lounge, although unfortunately this will not apply past closing time.

Amenities for travellers at the VIP lounge in Tenerife airport

You are allowed to stay inside the lounge for a maximum of four hours, and do not forget that, after paying the admission fee, everything is complimentary: from the food to the use of the wireless internet network, including the stations with desktop computers. In case you want to take the opportunity to catch up with work, connect your device to the free WiFi or use the business facilities you will find to the left upon entering the lounge. On the contrary, if you would rather relax before your flight, enjoy the views while having a light meal or snack accompanied by the alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage of your preference. You are equally advised to keep an eye on the constantly updated flight information panels or watch the news on TV.

A brief guide to Tenerife North airport in the Canary Islands

Tenerife North airport in Spain, also known as Los Rodeos (TFN), is the closest one to the capital city of the island –Santa Cruz de Tenerife– as well as to the municipalities of La Laguna and Tacoronte and the Teide National Park. This means not only easier access to the commercial and business activity taking place in the region, but also staying in an ideal place to take hiking tours and discover the island. While TFN focuses on domestic and regional flights, Tenerife South receives a considerably higher volume of inbound international tourism because of its proximity to the holiday resorts of Costa Adeje and other beach areas.

Flights to Tenerife

You can fly to Tenerife North from most Spanish cities and from the rest of the Canary Islands with Air Europa, Air Nostrum, Alitalia, Binter, CanaryFly, Evelop, Finnair, Iberia, Iberia Express, Norwegian Air, Royal Air Maroc, Ryanair and Vueling airlines.

Terminals of Tenerife North International airport in Spain

TFN has just one terminal divided into two levels. The level 0 or ground floor houses the check-in area, the security filter, the arrivals lounge and baggage claim area, cafés and shops and the car rental premises. Interisland flights have their boarding gates on level 0, however, for the great majority of the domestic ones, passengers go up to level 1 to board their planes. Next to the gates, some other restaurants and stores await, World Duty Free and Burger King among them.

Eating and shopping in Tenerife North airport

For your pre-flight meal, head for “Café & Tapas” before security and enjoy freshly brewed coffee and savoury baguette sandwiches. Once in the restricted area of level 0, you will get the chance to buy clothes and jewellery at GAP, Superdry and Lava or grab a last bite to eat before boarding at Panaria. Even if your designated gate is on the ground floor, you can spend time in level 1 as they are connected: Sunglass Hut, Tenerife Duty Free, Caffè Ritazza and Burger King will be your options upstairs.

Commuting from TFN to Santa Cruz, La Laguna or Los Cristianos

Providing you have just landed and want to hire a vehicle, the car rental offices are located on the ground floor and they stay open from 7:00 to 23:00 Monday through Sunday. The array of establishments to rent a car in Tenerife airport include those managed by companies like AutoReisen, Cicar, Avis, Hertz, Europcar and Goldcar Rental.

Should you rather opt for using public transportation to travel to your hotel or accommodation in Tenerife, you can take bus line 20 (linking Los Rodeos airport-TFN with the capital city, Santa Cruz, as well as with La Laguna), line 30 towards the coastal area of Puerto de la Cruz or route 343 towards Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos. If by any chance you get to the wrong airport in Tenerife, Canary Islands, you will be glad to know that route 343 actually connects Tenerife North and Tenerife South International airport on its way to the northern part of the island and also when it transports passengers to the tourist resorts in the south. The journey takes just about 50 minutes to be completed.
