The Canary Islands are well known as a popular year round holiday destination. Second only to Catalonia as the most visited region in Spain. Yet these seven islands are not all birds of a feather by any means. As each boasts its own unique character and identity.
Lanzarote is the most easterly link in this chain, lying some 80 miles off the coast of Morocco. In relation to larger Canarian cousins such as Tenerife the island remains surprisingly unspoiled – despite welcoming over 1.5 million foreign tourists every year. A figure which is further augmented by an annual influx from the Spanish mainland as many seek to swop the summer heat there for the cooler climes of the Canaries.
