This beautiful group of islands, which consists of 7 larger islands (Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma, Gomera, Hierro) and a few smaller ones (Alegranza, Graciosa, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este, Roque del Oeste und Lobos), has splendid beaches of fine sand, warm climate and ideal sailing conditions year round. Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, benefits from the so-called Canaries cold-stream, which has a moderating effect on its climate, and from the refreshing trade winds, so greatly appreciated by sailors.
The Canary Islands are one of Spain's top sailing destinations - especially for those looking for exhilarating sailing. A Yacht charter in Canary islands is also ideal for a winter-sun escape on a tighter budget, as its proximity to Africa offers warm weather conditions year-round and yachts there are offered at lower prices than those one can find in the Caribbean or South Pacific - win win!

Most yachts are based in Tenerife (Marina Del Sur) and Lanzarote (Marina Lanzarote). Lanzarote is well-served by the Lanzarote Airport. For Tenerife, you will need to fly in and out of the North or South Tenerife Aiport, which have frequent flights from Europe and the USA.
Transfer Time (Lanzarote): 10 mins
Transfer Time (Tenerife): 25 mins from Tenerife South Airport & 1 hour from Tenerife Norte Airport
These islands are often called "The Islands of Eternal Spring"; the temperature ranges between 20 - 28 degrees Celcius in both summer and winter. Almost always charterers enjoy moderate, fresh winds of 3-4 Beaufort, with stronger gusts between the islands due to the funnelling effect.
We recommend the Canary Islands to our more advanced sailors or those looking for a new, more challenging sailing experience.
We recommend allowing some time each day ashore for you and your crew to explore the amazing scenery of these islands. You shouldn't miss the “Timanfaya National Park” and a walk to the majestic cliffs of Famara, which offer a breathtaking view over Europe’s largest marine protected area – the Chinijo archipelago.
