Exploring the Beauty of Canary Islands

A trip to Canary Islands is simply a wish of millions. It is just a dream spot to spend vacations. The main advantage of visiting Canary Islands is that your trip can be planned almost at any time during the year because the climate there is pretty much predictable. So the main consideration from your side would be the time allowance and your budget. If you are visiting Canary Islands for the first time and plan to visit multiple islands then land at one spot and depart from there. Get the cheapest flight reservations to any one of the islands and from there onwards ferries can be taken to visit the other beautiful islands.

If you choose to go for a travel package then mostly they have flight airfare, hotel accommodations, and the ground transportation taken care of. These three common things should be there in a travel package and try to find it on a bargain rate. Recently I was going through a few travel packages at Kayak and Travelocity; have a look, I think you will like the rates. Searching well for travel packages would surely get you something affordable and reasonable.

All of the Canary Islands have airports on them but only La Palma, Tenerife, Lanzarote, and Gran Canaria are the ones that accommodate international flights. You can enter Canary Islands flying from and to any one of these islands. The two local airlines of Canary Islands are the Islas Airways and Binter Canarias. They would charge you the same price as the ferries would in order to travel to the other islands. I would say that you will pay around €60 per adult for a single trip. Acciona Trasmediterranea, Fred Olsen, and Naviera Armas are the three common ferry operators you will find there.

Lanzarote is the island where you should start your journey from and end it there as well. It is the most northeastern island. The beach resorts found on Canary Islands are simply irresistible and the natural beauty of this place cannot be explained. You can enjoy several activities such as hiking, forest walks, architectural tours, exploring volcano crater, captivating sand dunes, and enjoying the stunning beaches of course. The tropical forests of Canary Islands are highly attractive and their beauty is never ending. Vacations spent on these islands would have an ever lasting memory in your mind and you will always desire to visit one more time.

Manila is the capital place of Philippines and it would not be possible for you to miss out on this one since it has a lot to offer you as a tourist. Within Philippines, this is the most developed, modernized and urban touched place one would ever find because the rest of this place is enriched with the historic recombination of the culture. This city is considered to be the center of all the commercial and business activities which is why it has a lot to offer to its visitors. Intramuros is a place that is attractive for people coming from different parts of the world because it is a walled city that was built during the war times of Philippines with the Spaniards. There is a historical notion and museum on this place that exists now where most of the filed trip and history expeditions are held out. There is also a national park which is known as Rizal national park named after Dr. Jose Rizal; if you want to have a quiet weekend or an evening free of all the night life and partying, you can come here and get the best out of it. Usually it is crowded on the weekends and families like to come out with their children and other relatives to have a good relaxing time.

Baguio city is one of those places you must not skip visiting Philippines. The weather is pretty cold as compared to the other parts of the islands but it makes it even interesting and appealing. There is a parade of flowers held every year during the spring season that you cannot miss out on if you are visiting during the winters or by the starting time of spring. Tagaytay city of Philippines shouldn’t be skipped out from visiting as well.

You will be amazed that in the year of 2009 and 2008, around 10 million people came to enjoy the beach of Gold Coast. They enjoyed various water sports, did parasailing, and worshipped the sun a little as well.

Queensland yet offers another great beach known as Noosa. March is the month every year when almost all the surfers hit towards Noosa. Over here as well, you might not find any accommodation however holiday rentals are still the best way to enjoy this beach and make your holidays unforgettable. Because of being one of those few beaches that face toward the north; even besides surfing in March, Noosa has a lot going on all round the year and you can still enjoy several things in every month. Alexandria beach would be a great attraction too and you do not have to wear clothes if you don’t feel like it!

Okay so don’t be surprised but yet another beach of Queensland is Port Douglas. The same problem would be faced here as well; no accommodation in the peak season. If you want to enjoy this beach then make some early reservations. There are a number of reasons why you should visit the beach of Port Douglas; the Great Barrier Reef is present here naturally, not to mention but surfing as well, and lastly you get to drive those on shore 4 wheelers too. Sun bathing can be done here anytime of the year.

Lastly, Byron Bay beach located in New South Wales cannot be missed either. The holiday homes located on the edge of this beach are simply everyone’s dream. If you cannot own one then at least rent out one for this vacation and make this memories last forever.
