There are many activities that we can do and enjoy in the Canary Islands, on the beach, in the mountains, during the day or at night, in order to make the most of every second that we stay in its magical places.
In this post you will find a selection of the best activities to make the most of the Canary Islands:
1. Dolphin watching boat trips
This is an extremely pleasant trip where you can sail the waters of the Atlantic and relax while contemplating the enchanting views, enjoying refreshing drinks and delicious snacks.
Some of these trips include visits to beautiful coves, which are more complicated and demanding to access by land due to the long walks that must be made to reach them.
You can make stops and enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea, as well as snorkelling to contemplate the beautiful underwater world that surrounds the islands.
The highlight of the trip will be when you can observe the dolphins and whales up close in their natural habitat, a moment that is truly worth experiencing.
2. Camel ride in the Maspalomas Dunes
The Maspalomas Dunes represent one of the most emblematic sites of Gran Canaria. This important Nature Reserve has almost half a thousandth of hectares of living dunes of organic sand.
The desert atmosphere and the breathtaking views make it an adventure to explore them. You can also take a wonderful ride on camels and enjoy a marvellous experience, and finally reach the sea and dive into its refreshing waters.
It’s a ride with your family, couple or friends that will leave you with beautiful memories. If there are children, they are sure to love it too.
3. Diving in Fuerteventura
This island has a wealth of marine fauna and flora that is well worth observing and enjoying from the inside.
Scuba diving is a very popular activity in Fuerteventura, where you can find several schools that provide the necessary training for its practice.
It is very pleasant and impressive to observe the beautiful reefs, colourful fish and other species of the area up close.

It is an activity worth enjoying in groups of friends, couples or families, and to keep the memories in photos and videos.
