The Canary Islands are well known for their good weather year round and so whilst on holiday there will be plenty of time to relax on the beach, swim in the sea and see the sights while snorkeling. Added to the many residents who work in the tourist industry there are still many acres of farm land which help to provide the fresh food for visitors to the islands. Many more locals work as fisherman as their ancestors did. It is tourism that has brought about a great deal of the development of the Canary Islands and this has been the case since the 1960s when Franco encouraged the mass tourist industry to begin.
There are so many contrasts on the Canary Islands that people will have so many different reasons to visit. Some will be attracted by the scenery while others will enjoy the nightlife and the lazy days spent on the beach. It is easy to get from one island to the other so there is no need to be limited to just seeing one of them. With the remains of a number of different cultures left behind there are plenty of archaeological sites to visit.
There is much more to see than just the beaches as there is something for everyone. Even in the middle of winter Fuerteventura has a climate that will keep you warm throughout your stay. Gran Canaria has rolling dunes and some of the sand has been blown over from the Sahara. Lanzarote is one of the more modern of the islands and each day can end with a meal at a modern and exiting restaurant. Tenerife is the place to find black beaches and a temperature that hardly changes throughout the year.
