Here are ten excursions that grandma will love on your holiday to the Canary Islands:

Trip to the beach
It may sound simple but there truly is nothing better than a day out at the beach. If you’re staying in Fuerteventura you can explore a new one everyday or if you’re enjoying your spending a lot of time in the resort why not have a change of pace and visit a city beach like Las Canteras in Gran Canaria?

Mount Teide
For those holidaying in Tenerife you simply cannot miss Mount Teide. The spectacular mountain dominates the island meaning a trip to the top is a must.

Excursions out to sea

The scenery will amaze and the sun will shine made all the more exciting by the possibility of dolphins swimming alongside your boat!
