Santa Cruz, La Palma La Palma is not known as ‘La Isla Bonita’ (The Pretty Island) for nothing; from the verdant forests to the unmistakable San Antonio Volcano, there’s rarely an unattractive sight to behold. Santa Cruz, the island’s charismatic capital, has something for everyone. The extraordinary variety extends from the balconied palaces of the Old Quarter, to the restaurants and elegant squares of Calle Real, ideal for sampling local culture and cuisine. Funchal, Madeira Alongside the blissful colours and scents, the benign climate in Funchal lends itself well to exploration, be it admiring the stunning landscapes via the unique levada irrigation network, or taking in one of the many enchanting gardens at your leisure, complemented by a glass of the famous Madeira wine perhaps. Don’t miss the renowned New Year’s celebrations: your stay here is well-timed to take in the spectacular fireworks that illuminate the skies over the island – a sight you won’t want to miss. Lisbon, Portugal Portugal’s alluring capital is spread out over seven hills on the north of the River Tagus, with fascinating museums and the adorable backstreets of the Alfama district awaiting your discovery. Architectural wonders include the Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries, and be sure to visit Pasteis de Belém – this café’s famous egg pastry recipe has remained unchanged for nearly 200 years. From only £1,999 per person sign off the year in style. La Coruña, Spain From the beautiful beaches to the impressive seafront promenade; and from uncovering the many intriguing galleries and museums in the Old Quarter to admiring the diverse architecture, ranging from Medieval to Modernist, La Coruña has something for everyone. There are also stunning views of the Plaza da Maria Pita and the Tower of Hercules – said to be the world’s oldest lighthouse. Arrecife, Lanzarote Arrecife is a bustling, sun-drenched city with many attractions: go camelback riding and explore the lunar-like landscapes of Timanfaya National Park’s Fire Mountains, spot miniature white crabs in the beautiful saltwater lagoon of Jameos Del Agua Cave, or check out Cesar Manrique’s unique cactus garden. To round it all off, head to the Mirador del Río lookout point for phenomenal views of the volcanic island of La Graciosa. Las Palmas, Gran Canaria Gran Canaria is bathed in almost year-round warmth, making it all the more appealing during cold, dark nights back home. Take in the mix of Renaissance, Gothic and Neo- Classical architecture in cosmopolitan Las Palmas’ Vagueta district, visit the charming towns of Teror and Arucas, or relax by the oasis-like sand dunes and palm trees of Maspalomas Beach. Santa Cruz, Tenerife Tenerife’s wonderful climate and many attractions have been drawing tourism for decades and rightly so. Santa Cruz is home to brightly painted buildings, enlightening museums, elegant parks and pretty squares. Take a tour to Mount Teide, the Pyramids of Güímar or the Playa de las Americas resort – you won’t regret it.
