I know I keep banging on about this, but the Canaries really are underrated. Yes, I know they get millions of visitors every year, but those visitors basically stay in a few small strips on the larger islands and they miss so much.
They miss the bizarre volcanic landscapes. They miss the wonderful fresh seafood and salty papas arrugadas. And they miss some truly gorgeous hotels.
A lot of those hotels are affordable too. I rounded up my favourite Canarian hotels and fincas under £100 a night for The Times recently. Check out my top 20 here.
