7 Islands, 7 Reasons to Visit

The Canary Islands have been a tourist hotspot for many decades. But where sun, sand and sea lovers tend to divide their time between the beach and the nearest pub, travelers like you like to experience a destination like the locals do. Well, have we got news for you: there is so much more to the Canary Islands than its popular image suggests.

With a stunning variety of landscapes and enough off-the-beaten-track charm left to last you a lifetime, these seven islands are a hard-to-beat destination. If you’re in the luxury position to be location-independent, you may as well put this archipelago on your itinerary. But be warned — you might just stay forever. Here are some reasons why.

Be inspired to create

The deep blue Atlantic, red volcanoes, green lakes, and houses that may only be painted white: Lanzarote may look inhospitable at first glance, but more than makes up for it in color and style. The easternmost of the Canary Islands awakens an almost mystical sense of well-being in visitors. No wonder so many writers and painters have chosen to make this island their creative headquarters.

Soak up the sun, play with the wind

If the short days and long nights of Northern-Europe (which, to us, is anywhere beyond the Pyrenees) have you sun-starved, head toFuerteventura. Its endless, white beaches and turquoise waters are perfect for either bumming around, or trying your hand at kitesurfing. Move around in style by renting a campervan; on Fuerteventura, you can set up camp right by the beach.

Enjoy the perfect work-life balance

Gran Canaria is home to the biggest city on the islands, Las Palmas. While it has the trappings you would expect of any big city –hipsters, crazy traffic, and a thriving nightlife– Las Palmas sets itself apart with what is one of the world’s best city beaches. Playa de las Canteras is 3 kilometers long and caters to anyone, from surfers to card-playing seniors.

With its year-round spring weather and fiber-optic internet connections, Las Palmas has become a favorite for conferences and business trips, too. Shared offices like Coworking Canary Islands have helped put Las Palmas on the digital nomad radar, right between hubs like Chiang Mai (Thailand) and Ubud (Bali).

Eat, drink and be merry
