The Canaries are a great winter sun holiday destination with a flight time of around 4 hours and no jet lag to worry about! The Spanish Islands off the coast of West Africa are an astonishingly well-kept secret and offer great value for money.
The islands offer a spectacular cruising ground, with a varied backdrop. All of the seven main islands – Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro – are within a day’s sail of each other, yet they each have their own unique character and some even have a difference in climate. Most of the marinas and harbours have excellent facilities, improved in recent years by the influx of foreign yachts.
