Below we tell you which of them is the best choice depending on your needs, tastes and other features.
Which Canary Island is the best to visit?
Each and every one of the Canary Islands has plenty of reasons to be visited. However, if you have to choose only one island to visit, Lanzarote may be the most striking option to spend a few days of vacation where you can combine different types of activities and experiences.
If you have to choose one, Lanzarote may be the most special and different because of its lunar landscape caused by the volcanic rock. You will be able to enjoy nature, swimming at the beach, underwater nature, dreamlike landscapes and tourist spots that you cannot see in other places.
If you are looking for the perfect island to enjoy with your family, Tenerife may be the best option to relax during your vacation. The island of Tenerife is probably the one that offers the most complete range of services, tourist and gastronomic options for all tastes.
If you are looking for a place to unwind on long paradisiacal beaches, Fuerteventura might be the best choice for you. Gran Canaria is the perfect destination for lovers of hiking and nature. A great choice for a couple’s vacation. The wild nature of La Palma, also known as the “isla bonita” (beautiful island), will captivate you if you are looking to disconnect among amazing landscapes. La Gomera, on the other hand, may be the most authentic island. You can also visit it in a day trip from Tenerife. La Graciosa, which you can also visit in a day trip from Lanzarote, and El Hierro will be your perfect destination if you are looking to disconnect and enjoy the seabed.
Which Canary Island has the best climate?
The subtropical climate of the Canary Islands means that temperatures are stable and mild throughout the year. During the summer, the temperature is softened by the trade winds. The rest of the year, it is the sea that keeps the temperature under control. However, as the islands are located at different points and have different types of orography, each island has a specific climate that makes temperatures, rainfall and wind differ. For example, rainfall is normally lower on the eastern islands and, therefore, they have a more arid and even semi-desert climate.
However, some areas of La Palma have more than 1200 mm of annual rainfall. As for the winds, those blowing from the northeast tend to be more common. The “calima” usually appears with the trade winds.
Which Canary Island has the best beaches?
In terms of beaches, Fuerteventura may be the island that offers the best conditions for a dream bath with crystal clear waters and long miles of white sand. Gran Canaria, although more touristic, is also another perfect destination for a few days of disconnection as a couple or family. The beaches of Tenerife, offer many amenities and activities to enjoy the beach with the little ones.
Which Canary Island is the best to live on?
The Canary archipelago has excellent weather conditions, a wide range of leisure activities and a wild nature, so who would not want to live in this paradise? Depending on your preferences, you will have to choose which of all the islands is the one that best suits your tastes, needs and demands.

In any of them you can choose between living in a small city with all the services at your fingertips or in a small peaceful and quiet town.
