Properties in the Canary Islands

Canary Islands real estate ranges from slick city apartments and modern condos in the more cosmopolitan areas such as Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife, to ultra luxurious beachfront villas with private pools and unique rural properties in Lanzarote. Here is a quick overview to get you started on your quest for your ideal Canary Islands property.

The Canary Islands – the most southerly part of Europe, just off the south west coast of Morocco, is an archipelago of seven main islands including Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro, as well as a number of much smaller islands.

The Canaries are and always have been an unbeatable destination for winter sun. These paradise-like enclaves boast a steady average year-round temperature of around 20º with stunning varied landscapes and have a distinctly exotic feel yet with highly modern infrastructure and a friendly relaxed local culture which makes relocation here easy. Regular flights from all major destinations in mainland Europe draw tourists to the Canary Islands unique volcanic shores all year round. Buying a house in the Canary Islands is an excellent option for those looking to enjoy a second residence in the sun and let it to other visitors the rest of the year, thereby enjoying great return on your investment.

Each of the islands has its own character and landscape, so which should you choose?

  • Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and a popular place to purchase a holiday apartment in one the many complexes in Los Cristianos, Adeje with its golden sands or the buzzing Playa de las Americas with its famous nightlife scene.
  • Lanzarote is where we find some of the most dramatic, almost lunar scenery as it is the most volcanic island with characteristic black sandy beaches. This is where some of the more high-end properties are found as strict building laws have protected the island’s skyline and created a market for luxury homes. The most exclusive area of the island is Puerto del Carmen with its charming old town and fishing harbour.
  • Fuerteventura offers superb white sandy beaches and is widely considered the quieter of the islands with the international community concentrated in resorts in Corralejo, such as Caleta de Fuste. Here we find a wide range of Canary Islands apartments with communal facilities such as pools, tennis courts and spas, and incredible golf front villas offering spectacular views and privacy, all with great rental potential.

Although it is only the third largest island, Gran Canaria is home to half of the archipelago’s population and the greatest variety in types of property for sale in the Canary Islands. From the bustling city of Las Palmas with its apartments and townhouses to glamorous Meloneras with its high-end luxury villas next to the popular tourist areas of Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas. If you are looking to buy a chic lifestyle property in the Canary Islands, this is a great area as it offers sandy beaches, designer shops and many fine dining options as well as a fantastic 18-hole golf course. The more economical property for sale in the lovely green northern area of Puerto de las Nieves, characterised by a rugged coast and great opportunities for water sports and hiking enthusiasts.

La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro are all known as popular eco-tourism destinations with stunning forests, rugged coastlines and a very authentic feel. If you are looking to buy a house in the Canary Islands that is far from the madding crowd, these smaller islands are real gems.
