Just off the coast of Africa, the Canaries enjoy year round sunshine and Tenerife provides superb sailing holidays all year.
The Canaries are situated close to the northwest coast of Africa off the Western Sahara. With constant north-westerly wind throughout the year, the sailing is exhilarating but yacht charter in the Canaries requires more experience than in the easier Mediterranean destinations.
Starting your yacht charter in Tenerife gives you the chance to visit three of the most untouched islands in the Canaries - La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro, long considered the "world’s end" until the discovery of America.
The Canary Islands are spectacular volcanic mountains but there are plenty of good harbours and marinas. During your sailing holiday keep an eye out for dolphins and pilot whales that play in the bow wave.
