2. Canary Islands
Thanks to a subtropical climate and location just off the coast of Africa, Spain’s Canary Islands offer the perfect winter escapade for those seeking a little sun and sand. With mild temperatures and pleasant weather conditions, the seven volcanic islands attract more than 9 million tourists every year. Tenerife, Fuerteventura and Lazarote, three of the most popular islands, are some of the best places to enjoy outdoor activities.
Tenerife, popularly named Picuda Island is the largest and most visited island in the Canaries. The island offers a wide range of exciting water sports such as surfing, paddleboarding, windsurfing, jet skiing, water skiing and parasailing. A trip to Tenerife would be incomplete without a visit to Mount Teide, the island’s famous volcano, and the highest point in Spain, with a summit at 3,718 metres above sea level.
