Plentiful panoramas represent one good reason to visit: Because walking is the big draw on the north-westernmost Canary Island: L anzarote has its extraordinary lava fields, Tenerife its towering volcano of Mount Teide and La Palma the cavernous crater of the Caldera de Taburiente.
But if you want sheer scale, the sense of being a fly on a green wall, you have to come to El Hierro, the Isle of Milk and Honey, the smallest and most westerly island of the Canarian archipelago. The stupendous gulf El Golfo is all that remains of the inner wall of a volcano crater too mighty even to imagine.

An oasis of exquisite design and perfumed luxury with on-site gourmet cuisine, Royal Garden Villas combines the privacy and exclusivity of a deluxe villa with the service and facilities of a boutique hotel in an exotic garden setting. This is possibly the most elegant and luxurious accommodation on Tenerife.
Designed to resemble a North African citadel with sandstone turrets rising from a luxuriant garden of tropical flora and palm trees, the property covers a vast surface area yet the design creates a sense of intimacy and privacy by incorporating hidden gardens and quiet corners. It's positioned in splendid isolation on a clifftop above banana plantations on the south-west coast, overlooking the neighbouring island of La Gomera.
Gran Canaria F orever in the enormous shadow of its neighbour to the west, Tenerife, Gran Canaria is nonetheless never so eclipsed that it cannot provide temperatures around the 20 degrees mark as March makes the rest of Europe shiver. W here to stay. There's a plaza that feels more like a square, especially during a concert by a covers band that saw children climb up onto the stage for a better view. Accommodation blocks mimic traditional Canarian houses, with a painstaking attention to detail.
Grand by name, grand by nature; the five-star Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia has accommodated both politicians and rock-stars, including the likes of Angela Merkel and Bruce Springsteen.
The hotel is located on the outskirts of Maspalomas. Lanzarote T his may surprise you, but Lanzarote is turning into a rather upmarket destination. There are eight restaurants, including three buffets, serving local, international, Italian and Mexican food. A refreshing antidote to Lanzarote's sprawling amassment of mammoth resorts, this more modest-sized hotel has garnered the respect of guests for its stylish sea-view rooms, tasty breakfasts, and restaurant, which sources its produce locally and has proved a hit with the locals too.
Rooms on lower floors with city views get a close-up look at the architecture of Arrecife, or you can upgrade to a sea-view room and request a high floor.
Fuerteventura G olden drifts of sand, like fine-spun silk, ripple towards the sparkling shore. The Balinese beds at the Coco Beach Chill-Out club are a superb place to relax, with complimentary fresh fruit and cocktails. These days, following a 21st-century makeover, it graces the pages of style magazines, representing Fuerteventura at its most fashionable.
The vibe here is infinitely more Mediterranean than Atlantic. Traditional Canarian style, sub-tropical splendour, and quite possibly the best hotel swimming pool complex in the archipelago, on the sunny, south west coast of Fuencaliente.
The ideal choice for quiet couple or family getaways. The hotel lies in easy reach of the San Antonio volcano and the volcanic trail that leads to the lighthouse and salt flats at the southern tip of the island.
