The Canary Islands, a popular holiday destination, offer travelers a wide range of budget-friendly spots, including hot nightlife, cultural sites, landscapes and sun all year-round. Holiday car rental experts at StressFreeCarRental.com researched the top six spots in the Canary Islands travelers on a budget must see.


Stroll Around Popular Tenerife Market

El Mercado Nuestra Senora de Africa, otherwise known as The Market of Our Lady of Africa, a popular market in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, has thrived since it began in 1942. Travelers can experience authentic foods from the surrounding market stalls and restaurants. Visitors can also take advantage of fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, fish, flowers, local crafts and clothes. El Mercado also hosts regular live music performances and wine tastings in the courtyard.


Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote

Timanfaya National Park is made up of volcanic soil and is the only active volcano on the island. The national park is a must-see when visiting Lanzarote, since it’s a great way to view the natural rugged scenery of the island. The best way to explore the park is by coach. The trip takes tourists to landscapes typically closed to the public.


Las Teresita Beach, Tenerife

As one of the most well-known beaches in Tenerife, Las Teresita Beach is a must-see while visiting. The sand was once black volcanic dust, but, in the 1970s, transformed into the only white-sand beach on the island. The beach was filled with sand imported from the Sahara Desert to make the beach bigger and help reduce wave size.


Lagomar Museum, Lanzarote

Lagomar Museum lies within the old volcanic rocks of Lanzarote. Once a private house owned by famous actor Omar Sharif, Lagomar features secret passages, tunnels and caves for visitors to spend the afternoon exploring. Guests can also take in the stunning art at the gallery before enjoying a delicious meal and cocktail at the restaurant.


Lanzarote to Fuerteventura Boat Trip   

Hop on a boat for a 30-minute trip from the port of Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, to Corralejo, Fuerteventura. The trip is a great way to spend the day exploring the beauty of another island without spending a lot of money.


Mogan Mall, Gran Canaria

Mogan Mall is a unique shopping experience set within the natural rocky landscape of the island. Spend the afternoon exploring the shops, restaurants and bars within the mall.
