Canary Islands

Canary Islands

Renting a yacht in the Canaries with family or friends means enjoying the sun all year round, with the ocean for swimming! The annual average temperature for the water is 20°C, and for the air, is 25°, it’s non-stop springtime, a gentle climate all year round which allows you to enjoy the landscapes, between volcanoesrich forestsdunes and fine sandy beaches.
It is better to sail with the trade winds and upwind of the islands rather than downwind. The wind blows north/north-east and accelerates between the islands. It is these ‘venturis’ (acceleration in wind speed) that make sailing in the Canaries unique.

The Canaries,
the 7 island
archipelago

The Canary Islands is an archipelago in the Atlantic ocean made up of seven main islands.

The islands within the Santa Cruz de Tenerife region:

  • El Hierro, with its translucent waters and the biodiversity on its seabed, make it the perfect spot for scuba diving.
  • La Gomera will surprise you with ravines that flow into the sea, valleys covered with green palm trees, black, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, and its refreshing springs.
    A natural setting which constitutes a true biosphere reserve, with species already extinct elsewhere in the world.
  • La Palma is nicknamed ‘Isla Bonita’ by the locals, as it is blessed with almost unspoiled, extremely beautiful nature.
  • Tenerifeis the largest island in the archipelago and is dominated by the Teide volcano. It has beaches with yellow and black sand

And also...

The islands within the Las Palmas region:

  • Fuerteventura, the arid, desert and windy island is very attractive because of its coast bordered by turquoise water.
  • Lanzarote, the most easterly island in the Canaries, is closest to Africa. Often called ‘the black pearl’ due to the almost black minerals which characterise it. The island has an incredible volcanic landscape.
  • Gran Canaria is one of the largest islands in the archipelago, with a particularly dynamic urban life. Rent a boat, with or without a skipper to see whales, walk through the Canarian pine forests, have fun at the water park, browse the shops, visit the museums… or just relax on a quiet beach.
  • The Chinjio archipelago is the largest marine reserve in Europe and the inhabited island of Lobos is a natural reserve, a paradise for birds.
  • The Canary Islands have one of the best climates in the world. With an impressive diversity of islands. It’s the perfect destination to rent a yacht.
