Getting a little bit of sun in the British autumn season doesn’t have to mean travelling to faraway shores. Last minute deals on cheap holidays to Tenerife and Lanzarote family holidays are the perfect opportunity for a hot half term trip.

With the UK’s autumn half term holidays falling a little later than usual this year, the chances of catching some end of season rays in many Mediterranean destinations are low.

Located south of Spain, and off the west coast of Africa, the Canary Islands are conveniently located close to the equator. October highs still hover around the mid-20 degrees C.

Depending on how you prefer to spend your time abroad, there’s a spot in the Canaries for every family this half term.

Lively Canary Island Holidays

Complete with beautiful blue flag beaches, an electric ambience and top visitor attractions, Tenerife and Lanzarote are ideal for those looking for a lively break with the brood.

For a good taste of the action, parents should look at booking a package break in or around the Los Cristianos or Costa Adeje areas of south Tenerife. Alternatively Puerto Del Carmen and Playa Blanca are fun packed resorts.

Laid Back Canary Island Escapes

When sun, sea and sand is all you need, then Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria are more than happy to oblige.

The beaches of Fuerteventura are without doubt the best in the Canaries. If the kids are happy creating their own pirate adventures, while you kick back and relax with a holiday read, then this is the island for you.

Gran Canaria is an authentic Canarian setting for your half term holiday. Here, gorgeous fauna adorned mountainous landscapes meet beautiful sugary Sahara sands and crystal clear waters.
