Top Spanish Islands

I’ve been in Barcelona for a few months and to be honest I’ve not been very far. I’ve visited Madrid prior to coming here, but otherwise I’ve basically stayed put. I’m trying to wait until better weather to book some holidays, although I know some parts of Southern Spain have great weather all year round. I’ve been narrowing down a list of Spanish islands I really want to visit and thought I’d share that with you today, for some travel inspiration. Let me know if you’ve been to any of the islands yourself, I’d love some tips!


This stunning island, the largest of the Canary islands, has a very interesting landscape, which has been shaped by a volcanic eruption in 1730. This part of the island is a national park and certainly worth a visit. Finding Lanzarote flights is really easy if you get them sorted in advance, especially for the summer months as this island is very popular. Of course this island is surrounded by gorgeous beaches, white sand and a lot of family friendly resorts is if that’s what you’re looking for. I’m really craving some beach action so this might be my first choice.


I know, I know, this is often regarded as a commercial and over-visited island, but I’m young and I do love a great night out. I’ve heard Ibiza is very expensive, but one of the best places to party in the world so I’d really like to check it out while I’m living so close. Parties here don’t get started until after dinner and extend right through to the early morning. I’ve heard the markets here are also well-worth a visit, if you have the energy after partying all night!

La Palma: 

Often referred to as the beautiful island, La Palma is close to Morocco and one of the Canary islands. This is the perfect island if you’re into walking, hiking or tramping as the landscape here is varied and extremely beautiful. The largest crater in the entire world is located smack-bam in the centre of the island and it is possible to do guided walks here.

Whichever island you choose, you’ll be assured to get great Spanish food, gorgeous weather and a fun environment. One thing I personally love about the Spanish people is that they’re really warm, welcoming and a lot of fun to party with if you get the opportunity. These islands all offer something different and are certainly worth a visit in their own right. I hope to visit all of these islands before eventually moving on from Spain and I can’t wait.
