Canary Islands
« on: November 28, 2015, 05:24:38 PM »
Hey everyone,

I'm looking into going to the Canary Islands and couldn't find anything about it. I think that such an impirtant destination deserves its own thread!

So... Anyone been there? In the winter?

What's better between Tenerife and Gran Canary?

Thanks!

With Zika quickly eliminating year-round beach destinations, the Canary Islands can be a solid year-round option. Some of the islands are drier than others.

I've been to Tenerife and gran canaria and found Tenerife to be more upper class (maybe it's just the places I've been. I didn't check the entire islands).

In gran canaria there's a small sefardi Shul but you won't find any info online as the people there are kinda petrified to be Jewish...

No "official" kosher food in any of the Canary Islands. There's probably stuff from the Spanish "list". Btw The island that you're mentioning is one of the smaller ones.

Where can i find the Spanish list? and ya i saw but i think that one worked out best for me. The other one i was considering was grand canaria but ultimately decided on Fuerteventura. Ill let you know how it goes.

Any recent trips taken to the Canary Islands that one can share?

Which is the best Canary Island?
Tenerife Best Canary Island for nightlife. ...
Gran Canaria Best Canary Island for hiking. ...
Lanzarote Best Canary Island for families. ...
Fuerteventura Best Canary Island for beaches. ...
La Gomera Best Canary Island for authenticity. ...
La Palma Best Canary Island for snorkelling.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
