The Canary Islands offer high levels of accessibility throughout, making these stunning, scenic destinations popular choices for disabled holidays abroad. Each of the islands has something different to offer visitors with limited mobility.
Lanzarote is a stunning, sunny destination. The island is just 60 miles off the African coast, and offers Saharan sands and turquoise water, and a stunning landscape of volcanic peaks and lava plains. It’s a great choice for wheelchair-friendly holidays in the Canary Islands, with many accessible resorts to choose from and several beaches across the island being accessible to wheelchair-users, boasting ‘Beaches for All’ status. The island is also home to plenty of culture and history for guests with limited mobility to discover.
Tenerife is green and lush in the north, and sunny, dry and desert-like in the south. An island of delightful contrasts, Tenerife’s dramatic beauty and typically Spanish hospitality has brought the island international acclaim. Accessibility in Tenerife is fantastic – most bars, shops and restaurants have accessible entrances and there are accessible beaches on the island, as well as a barrier-free public transport system.
Gran Canaria is a diverse and welcoming island for everyone and wheelchair-users are no exception. Accessibility on the island is constantly improving – the newer shops, bars and restaurants all have good access, and the wheelchair-friendly public transport system will give you the freedom to explore. Gran Canaria is known as a ‘miniature continent’ due to the number of different climates and landscapes there. The island is also home to a number of Natural Protected Species, plus thousands of creature types that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
Fuerteventura, the second largest of the Canary Islands, receives an average of 3000 hours of sunshine a year – that’s an average of over 8 hours a day. It is also slightly less developed than some of the other Canary Islands, which provides it with an impressively rugged beauty. Its accessibility has proven popular with our holidaymakers – the island offers a wide choice of wheelchair-friendly restaurants and buses in the major resorts.
