Welcome To The Islas Travel Guides To The Islands of Menorca, Majorca, Tenerife and Lanzarote

Here at Islas we're not trying to sell you an holiday to either Menorca, Majorca, Lanzarote or Tenerife. We do not operate any on-line booking service, and we are totally independent from all Travel Agents and Tour Operators.

Our mission is simple, to provide you with practical first hand advice from real paying visitors to the resorts, hotels and attractions that the islands have to offer.

So sit back, relax and let your journey begin......

Menorca - Peace and Relaxation

Although only 25 miles from its neighbour Mallorca, Menorca is more peaceful than any of the other Balearic Islands and remains an oasis of sandy coves with over 120 sandy beaches of clear azure seas.

Menorca is often claimed to be one of the most beautiful islands in the whole of the Mediterranean, with strong British links dating back to the times of Nelson.

For the energetic, the island offers a superb selection of water sports, and for lovers of history there are mysterious, archaeological remains that date back to prehistoric times.


Majorca - Love Island

For over 30 years Majorca or Mallorca, whatever way you choose to spell it and pronounce it, has been the most popular holiday destination in the Mediterranean for both the British and German tourist.

Majorca is able to offer a wide variety of attractions and nightlife to suit all tastes, ranging from the wild clubs and bars in Magaluf and Palma Nova in the popular south of the island, to the relaxed and charming family orientated resorts of Puerto Pollensa and Cala Millor on the north and east coasts.

A combination of both outstanding natural beauty and professional tourist care will ensure that it's popularity will continue well into the future.


Tenerife - The Island of Contrasts

Located off the north coast of Africa, a little way to the north of the Tropic of Cancer, Tenerife is a sub-tropical paradise that offers something for everyone.

The island is dominated by the now dormant volcano "Mount Teide", which at 12,000ft is the highest mountain in Spain.

To the south, the ever popular resorts of Playa de Las Americas and Los Cristianos are basked in year round sunshine, whilst the north of the island is a lush green tropical paradise of banana plantations, palm trees and flowers.

Tenerife is truly a unique island of startling contrasts.


Lanzarote - The Island of Fire

Created around 35 million years ago, Lanzarote is the most easterly of the seven major and six smaller Canary Islands, all of which lie in the Atlantic Ocean between 60 to 190 miles from the north western coast of Africa.

Originally the Canary Islands were only a winter sun destination, but the unique combination of warm sunshine and fantastic modern holiday developments, has firmly put Lanzarote on the holiday map 12 months of the year.

Almost one third of the island is covered by the Timanfaya National Park, which is a spectacular lava flow that was formed by a series of volcanic eruptions during the 18th and 19th Century.

Volcanologists still recognise that Lanzarote is considered to be "active", although even with the best technology available to them, it still remains impossible to predict with any accuracy when the next eruptions are likely to occur.
