CANARY ISLANDS – The sunniest place in Europe, these Atlantic islands with long cloudless days are blessed with the best climate in the world. Featuring some of the most beautiful beaches in the world – with golden and white sand, remote and virgin or lively, tiny coves or extensive coastlines surrounded by dunes, with calm waters or stronger swells—they beckon you 365 days of the year.
The Carnival – This is the carnival of all carnivals and one of the biggest outdoor parties in the world. Crowds throng this fiesta where everything is allowed, and you have only one obligation: to have fun. Streets come alive with joie de vivre, freedom and extravagance for 15 days. Carnival is a Latin word that literally means ‘‘farewell to the flesh” and describes the Catholic practice of giving up meat during Lent. Important festivities, like electing a Queen and Junior Queen through a televised beauty pageant, street band competitions, processions for adults and kids are held.
