justme :

Thinking of going there for our honeymoon, but which of the islands is best for tourist. We want to relax and also be somewhere where they have nightlife and shopping Is there an island that offers a bit of both?

formenow :
"Tenerife, and for more trnquil, la Palma. Congrats and best of luck."
Chantalduvelbeer :
"Nightlife: Playa las Americas Tenerife La Gomera: relaxing and quietness."
berlingoffer :
"Have a look at the various islands listed in the page below"
Adrian G :
"Gran Canaria, either Playa des Engles or Maspaloma, you can be both quiet or have good nightlife. Many other of the resorts around this side of the island are hussle and bustle. Tenerife has been spoilt in that it is now a concrete jungle, made for boozing holidaymakers - plenty of nightlife but little in the way of peace and quiet."
gary h :
"Tenerife is a mad house if you go to las Americas. Other resorts are OK, pity about the above one. Gran Canaria would be my choice, as you can stay on the outskirts of both Playa del Ingles or Peurto Rico and walk in if you fancy it a bit if nightlife. Went to Fuerteventura a few years ago, but never read the reviews and ended up in a German resort and Hotel. Never had so many eyes watching my every move in my life. Islands crap as well. Lanzarote is OK I suppose. See the reviews on them here"

Which of the islands is best for a honeymoon?

cjdtucson :
"If you are looking for seclusion then Fueventura will be your best bet. If you are looking for a little more high class location with high quality hotels then I would recommend Lanzarote."
daza :
"If you want a fast paced time with plenty of nightlife then its tenerife, if its relaxtion with some of the best beaches by far its fuertventura. they are host to the annual world windsurf championship. nightlife is lower key than the street lined bars and clubs of tenerifes main resort enjoy"
LiLsHoRtYjEsS :

Is anybody from Lanzarote (Puerto del Carmen) whats the weather like today??? Whats the weather like there in july????

Emma G :
"lovely and hot, 28 degrees today."
alcatraz :
"knowing its nick-name,the windy isle,its probably err WINDY."

We met these crazy guys on the far side of the Atlantic in the Canary islands. It took them just under 36 days to get across the Atlantic in an open cockpit row boat!

Long haul destinations where the Scots are heading for include Orlando in Florida, and New York. The weakness of the dollar has helped to fuel demand for North American destinations from the UK and mainland Europe recently.Closer to home the Balearic Islands are seeing a surprising increase given that the weather is warmer in the Canaries...

Grand Canary Island is a paradise for tourists but Hell on Earth for the abandoned cats and dogs who live there

I dunno about you, but I like my music to fit my mood, which is affected by the weather, which in turn is affected by the “Global warming” crisis and a lack of organic consumption, blah, blah, blah.So, we turn to an organic music form courtesy of El Guincho. This gent, Pablo Díaz-Reixa, is from Barcelona-via-Canary Islands and...
