The most beautiful islands in Spain for your next vacation

The islands in Spain are among the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world. Whether you are looking for peace and relaxation or, on the contrary, you prefer a more lively atmosphere, the Iberian archipelagos will satisfy the tastes and needs of everyone. There are sophisticated islands, perfect for younger tourists looking for fun, islands designed for relaxation and perfect islands for adventurous couples, where you will have the opportunity to try new sports.

The Spanish islands offer everyone the opportunity to spend an unforgettable vacation. But if you do not yet know which Spanish island to visit or where the best sea is, here is the ultimate guide to help you choose the perfect island for your next vacation!

What are the go-to Spanish Islands for a vacation?

The Spanish islands that we recommend for your dream vacation belong to the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands, the two most important Spanish island groups: here you will find the most beautiful beaches and breathtaking natural landscapes.

Both archipelagos are indeed synonymous with natural beauty, relaxation and fun, but they differ in their geographical location: the eleven Balearic Islands are in the Mediterranean, while the Canary Islands are seven and are located in the Atlantic Ocean.

Spanish Islands and the movida for the younger ones

If you are looking for fun, the Balearic Islands are the perfect destination, offering both a vibrant nightlife and paradisiacal beaches with incredible landscapes inland.


The most famous of the Balearic Islands is undoubtedly Ibiza, the dream destination of all travellers looking for a good time, but also for a dip in the crystal clear waters of its stunning beaches.

Ibiza is not just the island of crazy nightlife and clubs open until morning. In reality, it is also about spectacular sandy beaches surrounded by crystal clear waters and postcard-like villages where you can enjoy a timeless atmosphere while strolling through the fascinating streets adorned by picturesque houses.

If you want to discover all that this island has to offer, we recommend you book a private photo shoot with one of our photographers in Ibiza, who will also be your local guide while taking beautiful pictures of you.


Maiorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and offers breathtaking landscapes, from the vast sandy beaches to the unique coves famous for the blue color of the water, to the incredible small towns in the mountains and the villages on the picturesque hills: it is impossible not to enjoy the beauty of this island. There is also a huge choice of nightlife, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. It is the perfect destination to give yourself a moment of pleasure and relaxation.


If you are looking for the perfect destination for your couples holiday, Formentera is the answer. This small island, the smallest of the Balearic Islands and only accessible by boat, has a unique charm that comes from its incredible turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. We recommend visiting Formentera in the months of June, September and October, when there are not so many tourists around and you can enjoy the beaches with your better half.

Spanish Islands for couples: the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are the perfect destination for you and your partner, very popular for honeymoons. No wonder, because these islands of volcanic origin offer endless romantic places with their breathtaking landscapes and paradisiacal beaches. Moreover, they are known all over the world for their year-round warm climate. They are definitely the perfect place for a romantic photo shoot.


Gorgeous landscapes, enchanting beaches and cliffs overlooking the sea: all this is Tenerife, one of the most romantic destinations to visit at least once in a lifetime. Tenerife is not only ideal for those who love to relax on the beach, but also a perfect destination for hiking in the wilderness and water sports.

Among all the beaches of Tenerife we recommend Playa Fanabe, La Tejita, Playa Bollullo, Playa de las Teresitas and Playa de las Américas. Also visit Costa Adeje and admire its fascinating sandy beaches that make it one of the best destinations on the island. And of course, Tenerife offers many places for beautiful photos.

Gran Canaria

The island of Gran Canaria is considered a miniature continent: its climate and scenic diversity offer tourists a unique setting.

Especially the spectacular view of Mount Teide, the volcano of Tenerife, which is so beautiful that it takes your breath away and inspires you to take great photos, is worth a trip.

The Gran Canaria is famous for its ancient paths, called caminos reales, which you can walk. Hiking enthusiasts can discover the true beauty of the island in La Vegueta, one of the old neighborhoods of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.


Lanzarote, with its mild temperatures, is perfect for visiting at any time of year. The island has been declared UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is home to Timanfaya National Park, known for its landscapes that resemble those of another planet. You will be speechless when you see the Caribbean beach of Playa Blanca and the high cliffs above the sea that hide the Playa Papagayo.
