Self Catering Canary Island Holidays

Booking self catering holidays in the Canary Islands with hot, sunny weather throughout the year guarantees the perfect holiday whether you are going away with the family or for a well deserved break as a couple.

For cheap family holidays, the islands all offer family friendly beaches and an extensive choice of hotels with kids' facilities as well as apartments for those who prefer to take self catering holidays. Costa Teguise in Lanzarote is particularly family friendly as well as Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria.

Out and about on package holidays in Canary Islands

The number of activities and attractions in the Canary Islands is endless. Sioux City in Gran Canaria is one of the most popular, entertaining you all with cowboy and Indian fights, saloons and horse shows. The El Rancho de Violable Mexican evening in Tenerife has a Mexican barbecue as well as horse shows. There are many attractions for animal lovers too, such as Cocodrilo Park, which started off as a rescue centre for neglected animals but now has crocodiles, monkeys, tigers and more.

Having fun on cheap holidays in Canary Islands

Visiting a water park for the day is a great way for everyone to cool down and for the kids to let off steam. One of the largest water parks is Aqualand at Maspalomas in Gran Canaria with water slides, chutes as well as an aquarium and sea lions.

There are three more water parks in Gran Canaria, namely Aquasur, Ocean Park and Aqua Park, all offering a full day of fun in the water. For fun all day and into the evening, try Rancho Texas Park with its country and western theme nights or take in a crocodile show during the day and see birds of prey just outside Puerto del Carmen.

Relaxing on package holidays in Canary Islands

All the resorts in the Canary Islands have family friendly beaches. Famara beach at Lanzarote is a surfer's paradise with golden sands for those who prefer to relax and watch. Puerto Rico has long stretches of golden sandy beaches, fantastic for building sandcastles and paddling. Las Palmas has one of the most popular beaches, Las Canteras and is much quieter than the other resorts. In the North of Tenerife the beaches are mostly black sand, which adds to the charm and experience and does not deter holidaymakers from sunbathing.
