Whether you’re looking for eternal spring, azure seas, near empty coves or traditional cuisine in mountaintop villages, the best Canary Island towns are just a four hour journey from the UK.

To help you plan your next trip, we asked holidaymakers to rate towns and resorts they had visited in the last year.

They rated everything from the beaches and restaurants to whether the resort offered peace and quiet. Our table-topping towns offer excellent food and drink, breath-taking beaches, peace and quiet, and excellent value for money.  

Only Which? members can view the recommendations and ratings in our table. Login now to reveal the results. If you're not a member, join Which? now to find out which Canary Island resorts were rated top by holidaymakers.
