Menorca travel guide

4.2
Beaches · Landmarks · Nightlife
The most tranquil of the Balearic Islands, Minorca or Menorca is a protected biosphere reserve featuring a remarkably unspoiled nature. Despite its small size, this island possesses just as many beaches as its bigger siblings, making it a perfect holiday destination. Here adventurous travelers have the opportunity to leisurely explore the natural attractions that abound, and quite possibly could have a pristine beach all to themselves. But more than just these untouched beaches and secluded bays along the coast, the island does have several modern yet very peaceful resorts, noted for a wide range of outstanding tourist facilities and a myriad of alfresco dining options.

Sardinia travel guide

4.3
Beaches · Landmarks · Caves
Sardinia, with its Mediterranean atmosphere and charm, is loved by visitors looking for things to do outdoors on their holiday, like swimming, boating, windsurfing, hiking, climbing, and camping. Taking advantage of the island's near-perfect summer weather, visitors tend to overcrowd Sardinia's coastal areas. The inner life of the island, away from the most popular vacation spots, remains largely unblemished by mass tourism and commercialization. Sardinia is steeped in history and has a colorful character quite different from the rest of Italy. This is where the ancient Nuragic society, whose stone monuments still litter the land, flourished more than three millennia ago--predating the Etruscan civilization in mainland Italy by several hundred years. Sardinia's seaside resorts may be among the best in the world, but its quieter and more interesting countryside offers a greater array of attractions, including a patchwork of forests, citrus groves, and medieval villages.

Gran Canaria travel guide

4
Often described as a "continent in miniature" because of its wildly varied landscapes and climates, Grand Canaria is mostly known for its long coastline where tourism thrives at modern resorts. The island is also a ideal for sightseeing by bike or on foot. A wide range of trails, from easy to challenging, link the island’s picturesque coastline and the quieter inland areas, which are dotted by green ravines and sleepy villages. Savvy travelers explore the island’s ancient but well-preserved cave dwellings, many of which have been turned into small restaurants serving a myriad of local delicacies unlikely to be found on the menu of any big-city eatery.

Tenerife travel guide

4.1
Water Parks · Beaches · Aquariums
Tenerife is the largest and most populous of the seven Canary Islands. With its abundance of sun-warmed beaches, deep gorges, dramatic cliffs, dense forests, and lush valleys filled with thriving banana plantations, the island offers an impressive variety of things to do: snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, hiking, and cycling. You can even spelunk in the island’s volcanic caves and tunnels, among the largest in the world. Tenerife is also known for its nightlife, attracting thousands of weekend revelers from nearby European countries. The island is highly urbanized, though there are still pockets where visitors can enjoy the distinctive local culture and sightseeing at a slower pace.

Lanzarote travel guide

4.1
Geologic Formations · Beaches · Nightlife
Today, the entire island is a World Biosphere Reserve, with over 500 different kinds of plants, 17 of which are endemic. Lanzarote’s beaches may be why most tourists choose to visit, but the island’s stunning landscapes also include impressive mountain ranges and a vast desert often compared to the surface of the Moon. Little is known about the history of Lanzarote, as most archaeological evidence sits buried under several layers of lava. The volcanic eruptions of the 1730s disrupted a brief period of prosperity and covered a quarter of the island’s surface with lava, destroying 11 villages and its most fertile farmland.
