Sail around the Canary Islands

Tenerife is the largest of the seven Canary Islands and is one of Spain's most important tourist destinations. Tenerife is a volcanic island with endless mountain ranges all over the island. Each year millions of tourists descend on the island for holidays, to sail and to explore what the island has to offer.

Tenerife and the Canary Islands are ideal places to sail and explore, with a large number of events throughout the year including the famous Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife which takes place every February.

Our Guide to Tenerife Sailing Itinerary

Our Tenerife Sailing Itinerary showcases the best Tenerife has to offer by visiting both the North and South ends of the island - San Miguel (South) and Santa Cruz de Tenerife (North). Both of these places have beautiful marinas, beach areas, coves to explore and idyllic swimming locations.

From Tenerife our Tenerife Sailing Itinerary begins by heading to the islands of El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma and then on to Gran Canaria. All of these islands have their own unique features and things to explore and discover; from history to swimming and natural wonders, Tenerife and the Canary Islands have the best of everything.

Getting There

The best way to reach our Tenerife Sailing Itinerary is by aeroplane. Tenerife has two major International Airports - North and South. The North Airport has flights from all over Spain and the South Airport has flights from further afar, including the UK and the rest of Europe. These flights are regular throughout the year and on a more frequent basis in the summer season. You can reach San Miguel, the start of our Tenerife Sailing Itinerary, by taxi from either the North (1 hour or 44 miles) or South Airport (15 mins or 6 miles).
