This strategic link between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean has been ruled by the Spanish, British and Moors. As long as the Barbary Apes remain, the British will rule Gibraltar this is the tradition that has held for 350 years. These pesky primates are a favorite with visitors despite their incessant chatter and light-fingered ways. Ride to the top of the Rock for great views over the Strait of Gibraltar-on a clear day you'll see Africa.
With the added attraction of a lunar landscape nearby created by volcanic activity, the capital of Lanzarote is an alluring destination to explore, experience and enjoy. From the stunning scenery of the Timanfaya (Fire Mountain) National Park to delightful beaches and quaint whitewashed houses with luminescent green shutters, Arrecife offers something for every visitor. After marvelling at the magnificent array of purple, blue and orange colours in the park, you can sample a dish in the restaurant where the meat is barbecued over the heat of the volcanic crater that gave the park its name. Back in the town of Puerto Naos, the Castillo San Jose overlooking the harbour features a modern art collection and another restaurant looking out over sea, not to mention a shopping centre to browse through.

But the diversity doesn't end there. Gran Canaria also has three distinct climates and landscapes, including snow-capped mountains, gorgeous beaches and tropical forests with lush vegetation.
