The Canaries have been fortunate to remain mostly unscathed during the COVID-19 virus epidemic, allowing for an early reprieve from lockdown, where boating was one of the first leisure activities to be resumed.
The islands have long been considered one of the best Atlantic sailing havens for a long stay; the region’s enviable climate and consistent breeze creating a year-round activity, sheltered from the concerns of seasonal weather upheaval.
In Lanzarote, Calero Marinas have attracted award-winning restaurants and some excellent sporting facilities, which together with the islands’ abundant outdoor leisure pastimes and safe, local surroundings, combine to offer a perfect place to leave your boat. Sailing schools provide essential courses for coastal or offshore sailing and the island’s fame for outdoor sports supports an abundance of diving and watersports centres.
Each marina in the group has the fortune to be based in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, placing considerable importance in respectful practices and a keen awareness of local marine biodiversity and cultural heritage.
Over in the archipelago’s western reaches, Marina La Palma is an attractive short walk from the notably pretty historic centre of Santa Cruz, with public transport links to access some truly glorious hiking spots, amidst sub-tropical laurel woodlands and around the dramatic caldera.
So, if you were expecting to take part in a transatlantic crossing event this year and have had to put plans on hold, why not get ahead, find out about our excellent long-term berthing rates and extensive maintenance and repair services, and book your spot from this autumn.
Whoever said that escaping to a sunny island wasn’t a good idea!
