Ride the waves under the sun in the Canary Islands

The dramatic volcanic landscapes, sweeps of sand and rolling waves of the easternmost Canary Islands are at their most appealing in January, when the temperature is warm but not scorching (and when the rest of Europe shivers). Fuerteventura and Lanzarote are both playgrounds for surfers of all varieties: experienced waveriders head to El Quemao (La Santa) and San Juan (Caleta de Famara) in Lanzarote’s northwest, or Los Lobos on Fuerteventura, while kitesurfers and windsurfers are also spoiled for choice. Hiking and cycling opportunities across Fuerteventura’s friable black lava fields and among Lanzarote’s 300 rugged volcanic cones abound, too. There are beaches galore, naturally – choose from gold- or black-sand shores on Fuerteventura, or the chilled little islet of La Graciosa off Lanzarote’s northern tip. Lanzarote also boasts wineries in La Geria region, and the innovative architecture of César Manrique.
Trip plan: It’s easy to combine both islands – regular ferries make the crossing between Playa Blanca on Lanzarote with Corralejo on Fuerteventura in about 30 minutes.
Need to know: Wind and surf tend to be stronger on the west coasts than the east.
Other months: Jan-Jun & Sep-Dec fine weather; Jul-Aug – hot, crowded. @lonelyplanet @gettyimages @canaryislandsturismo @canaryislandslive @waves4dev @beautiful destinations @kermer_official #lonelyplanet #gettyimage #canaryislands #spain #waves #wave #beautifuldestinations #surf #surfing #water #sea #sealovers #kermer_official #travel #traveling #travelgram #happytimes #escape #vtrippers
