How Your Canary Islands Vacation Can Make You Money

Sep 11, 2008
Buying vacation properties in exotic locations is nothing new. Vacationers have been snapping up in the world's most beautiful getaways for as long as anyone can remember. Today, some of the hottest vacation destinations are in the Canary Islands.

Seven major islands, one minor island, and various islets make up the Canary Islands. The archipelago sits off of the northern coast of the African continent, giving the islands a year-round warm climate. Thanks to the North Atlantic trade winds, the islands never get unbearably hot.

The Canary Islands also feature a rich cultural heritage. Festivals, traditional art, and nature reserves draw in millions of visitors each year. While all of the islands are similar in terms of history and culture, they each have their own distinctive flavor.

Even more attractive for vacationers is the Canary Islands nightlife. Various bars, clubs and restaurants offer entertainment every night of the week. For those who may prefer a calmer night scene, concerts and movies can be enjoyed all year long.

Many vacationers are making the move from transient travelers to long-term landowners in the Canary Islands. Those who buy property there usually have one of two reasons: to have a permanent home-away-from-home, or to make extra income renting out their vacation property.

Those who rent out their vacation property to other travelers stand to profit a great deal. Since the Canary Islands are almost always filled with tourists, rental properties are very lucrative for the owner. An added bonus is that property owners can vacation in their own property whenever they like, without the headache of making reservations.

Buying real estate in the Canary Islands is an excellent investment for the future. Property values are rising and will most likely continue to do so. In addition to providing a place to stay while on vacation, Canary Islands property can provide supplemental income year-round.

The island of Lanzarote is a particularly hot spot for vacationers and real estate investors. It's been hailed for years as a premier destination for UK and European travelers. The warm climate, beautiful landscape, and exotic feel of the island have made Lanzarote legendary.

While Lanzarote is one of the more expensive places for property buyers in the Canary Islands, investors get what they pay for. The established tourism and worldwide recognition of Lanzarote as a vacation destination mean that rental properties almost never go empty.

However, investors or vacationers who would like to spend a little less will have no problem finding more affordable properties on other Canary Islands. Not all of the islands have been built up to the same level of notoriety as Lanzarote. That may soon change, however, with some planned additions including a five-star resort.

Buying property now on the more affordable islands may net large returns in the future. The Canary Islands tourism industry is getting stronger every day, with more and more people choosing this beautiful and exotic location for their vacations.

Whether you plan to retire to Lanzarote or simply keep a vacation home on one of the islands, owning property in the Canary Islands is a fantastic investment for today and for the future.
