Who has never wanted to get lost on an island? Although in this case we are not talking about a desert island, it is about paradisiacal islands that we have very close to. We are going to tell you about the beautiful european islands to go on a trip at any time, because they usually have good weather.
If the islands are your thing, both because you like the sea and because you like the romantic touch that they always have, then pay attention to these travel proposals. These wonderful European islands do not leave anyone indifferent, and they have undoubtedly become many of the fashionable destinations in recent times, so they are worth visiting.
The good thing about going to the Canary Islands is that the weather is good all year round and it rarely rains, so it is a good idea if we want to enjoy a little beach at any time. Tenerife is one of the most visited, because it has some interesting things to see. In its southern area there is a very touristy part with beaches, but if we do not want everything to be sunbathing in the sand, we can also enjoy an essential visit to Teide. This volcano offers visits to its top, although to travel the last section you must ask for permission in advance. The cable car takes us to its highest part, to be able to have a view of the entire island and the sea. The surrounding volcanic landscape also has its charm, as it looks like a lunar landscape.
In Mallorca it is always better to go in high season, which coincides with good weather, since during autumn and winter we can take many days of rain or bad weather. In addition, in low season many of the hotels close, so we will have to look for accommodation in those that remain open, which will have fewer services as they do not have so many staff. This island offers us some interesting things in addition to its beaches. Even if we go in bad weather we can entertain ourselves enough. We have to visit the capital, Palma de Mallorca, where the beautiful Gothic cathedral of Santa María de Palma is located. The Bellver Castle From the XNUMXth century it will surprise us with its round shape, and we can dive underground if we visit the famous Caves of Drach, for which we will have to wear warm clothes. Lesser known caves are the Cuevas dels Hams, but they are also interesting.
Sicily is a large island that has also become a very visited place in the Mediterranean. In it you can visit the Mount Etna, one of the most active volcanoes in Europe, ideal for adventurers. There is a funicular to go up and from this mount there are spectacular views of the entire island. Taormina and Palermo are the two most visited cities in Sicily. In Taormina we can see the remains of the Greek Theater and in Palermo you can visit the Cathedral of Monreale. In places like Catania we will see the most authentic places, with a certain decadence but with a lot of charm and in Cefalù we will find what are supposed to be the best beaches on the island.
Another beautiful island where you can disconnect and find paradisiacal places and also a lot of history. In Crete you can visit Heraklion, where the Knossos Palace, the one of the famous labyrinth of the minotaur. In this city we can find vestiges of the oldest civilizations, so you should not miss its archaeological museum. On the island you can also enjoy Chania, the capital of the region, and beaches like Elafonisi.
Santorini has become one of those destinations that are longed for by everyone. An idyllic place with magnificent landscapes and of course very characteristic pictures. We all know the pretty, bright white houses in cliffs overlooking the caldera. Undoubtedly an island that has become a corner to rest and renew. From Oia you can see the most beautiful sunsets on the island and in Fira we will find the typical white houses with blue roofs that are a symbol of the island. Other things that are usually done in Santorini are for example a boat trip to visit the volcano of Nea Kameni and Palea or a donkey trip in the town of Fira, something that is done in many other places in Greece.
Ibiza is another of those islands that fill up with people in summer, but are already essential destinations. In Ibiza we have famous nightclubs such as Ushuaia, which offer a well-known night tourism throughout Europe. But in addition to this you can visit very interesting places. The city of Ibiza offers us the old area, known as Dalt Vila, but you also have to see San Antonio, and enjoy beaches such as Playa d'en Bossa or Cala Salada. The Can Marçá Cave is also a visit that must be done, since it is an ancient cave of more than 100.000 years located on a cliff.
