Canary Islands: Top value-for-money destination with an extended summer
16 September 2019 @ 12:03

HOME to idyllic beaches, volcanoes, caves and some of the best weather in the country, the Canary Islands is also the best value-for-money destination in Spain, according to recent research.

And best of all, while the Mediterranean, Balearic Islands and south coast are now sliding towards a mild autumn – great weather for being outside, but not so much for topping up your tan or swimming in the sea – summer in the Canaries carries on longer.

Its climate is closer to that of central or southern Morocco, given that the region is geographically closer to the African continent – only 100 kilometres by sea from its coast – than to mainland Spain. This has long made the Canaries a popular autumn or spring destination for sunseekers, and even in winter, it is pleasant enough to enjoy its outdoor attractions without needing extra layers.

Lanzarote is the most economical destination in the region, according to the portal Vacaciones-Españ – hiring a car for a week comes in cheapest at €126, although outside of high season you can probably get even better deals, since motor rental firms have to pay for storage in winter if their vehicles are not let out, so they are only concerned with covering their costs.
