Many of the sights on the Island revolve around the beautiful and dramatic scenery created by volcanic activity. A drive to Mount Teide is essential to soak up the views from the highest peak in all of Spain with spectacular views of the island. Great for families, the Aquapark Octopus in the resort of Los Cristianos, boasts water rides, swimming pools and dolphin shows keeping all the family entertained.

With its long stretching beaches and clear warm waters, Lanzarote is a firm family favourite.
