    Wow! I would love to go to the Canary Islands. I’ve heard of them before but certainly this resort is awesome! Like any resort, it’s important to know the weather at any given time of the year. It just appears to be SO much to do there. Beautiful place with so many ways to relax and enjoy. And the airports? One thing I enjoy doing is watching planes take off and land at airports. The one thing that concerns me is the cost. But I guess if you want to visit a beautiful place once, it’s worth the cost. Either way, I would do my research here first!

      I am glad I could help you. And actually, once you get to the Canaries, the prices are not bad at all. Food is actually really reasonable and kind of on the cheaper end of the scale.

    The Canary Islands, huh. There are so many places in this world to travel to that you could spend a lifetime trying to get to them all and not even be close!

    Phenominal article. Beautiful beaches. It makes me want to book a flight. Except, I’m too poor at the moment. Thanks so much for the ideas and tips. I’ve definitely put it on my destination list. 🙂 When is the busiest time when all the tourists go? I typically try to go to my destinations when it’s not quite so busy so I can enjoy it more.

    Beautiful beach, I can see myself lying on a deck chair and enjoying the sun and sea. I’ve never been to Fuerteventura. As you said the Canary Islands are for beach-lovers paradise, and I really am a big beach lover. I hope one day I can afford a trip to one of these beautiful beaches and enjoy all that you mentioned in your post.

      You would enjoy it here. And it is actually rather inexpensive, minus the airline ticket, which will be the biggest expense. But Fuerteventura, or anywhere in the Canary Islands is wonderful and there beaches are beautiful!

    Oh Leahrae,

    You kept making me sigh in this post! The Canary Islands! What an exotic place. Sun, beaches, tranquillity…..and a tax haven to boot! LOL! It’s got everything one could ever want. I can’t wait to have the money that requires me to make use of a tax haven!

    I like your system of reviewing restaurants. It’s very handy for people with different budgets.

    Well done. It’s a good read,

      You would absolutely love it Matt. For the small size of the islands (all the Canaries) you can find so much diversity. I know one day I was down sunning on the beach, and the next I was being hauled up to a volcano where it was snowing. Great place and the prices cannot be beat once on the island.

    Seeing your site took me back a few years to some good memories. I was on the first charter flight into Fuerteventura in the late 80’s. It had not been very commercialized back then and I had a very enjoyable holiday. I would imagine it is not the same place now that it has become very popular? Loved the long beach on the S.W, of the island. We had miles of sand to ourselves.

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Thanks for reading Pete. There are still many places here that you can have all to yourself. But I am sure you are right, not as secluded as it once was. It is very popular for the Germans and you will see a lot of signs in German and businesses owned by Germans.

    “opportunity to have a submarine outing”

    This sounds really fun. I checked the Oceanarium Explorer link you provided and I can see it is an activity they provide, but their website is in another language (Spanish?) and their translate feature does not work. It looks like it is 15 euro for adults and 8 euro for kids, which would be affordable. Are you aware of how long the outing would be for these types of tourist attractions? Not sure how keen I’d be if I gotta be cooped up in their little yellow submarine for too long.

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      You can look at the website in English, and here is the link 🙂 The submarine tour is 30 minutes long, but they also have so much more to offer besides just that tour. So, it is not a long tour at all, but definitely worth it ! Thanks for reading!

    I have heard of the Canary Islands, but am not sure where it is? I was looking for a new place to vacation besides New Zealand and Thailand where you get to bask under the hot sun. I am glad I found your website! I am hoping I can consider this as part of my holiday plan later this year. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, the Canary Islands is off the west coast of Africa, but is part of Spain. It is indeed a beautiful place. With the trade winds, it does not feel too hot, yet it is beautiful. You would love a vacation here. The beaches are absolutely beautiful!
