Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of the seven Canary Islands with 43 percent of the total population of the Canary Islands, and is also the most populous island of Spain.
Tenerife is also the most visited island in the Canary island group, welcoming over ten million visitors per year with its lovely weather, beautiful coastlines, spectacular beaches, lush forests, mountains, volcanoes, as well as two world heritage sites, one National Park, and 42 natural protected spaces.
The weather is one of the main reasons for the influx of visitors to Tenerife’s shores with almost guaranteed sunshine year round. As a result, this family friendly island is consistently one of Europe’s top winter sun destinations.
Though the island has 2 airports, inter island travel is best by ferry. As the largest island in the group, Tenerife acts as a hub for many of the other Canary Islands with frequent crossings offered by Spain’s best known ferry operators. There are also regular crossings connecting Tenerife to the mainland for those who enjoy spending their travel time at sea.
Fuerteventura is the second largest island of the Spanish Canaries, measuring around sixteen hundred square-kilometres, and also one of the most popular.
The coast of Africa lies just over a hundred kilometres away, so it comes as no surprise there are many similarities between the two, particularly in the landscape and architecture. Rolling, arid hills speckled by flat-roof houses dominate the vistas, whilst the island itself boasts three thousand hours of annual sunshine.
Fuerteventura’s biggest draws, however, are the incredible surf breaks and beaches, suitable for everyone from families to water-sports fanatics. It’s also the oldest island of the archipelago, dating back twenty million years. Consequently, there are some fine historical museums such as the famous Betancuria Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography.
As one of the most visited islands in the Canaries, Fuerteventura is well served by ferry and easily accessible from almost every other island. However, the journeys can vary in length. Sailing from Lanzarote takes just over half an hour, whereas overnight crossings are available from Tenerife, so be sure to book a more comfortable cabin for these routes.
