I have been to The Canaries several times to Gran Canaria, Lanzorote and to Tenerife.

I went to Gran Canaria in the early nineties, to Lanzorote in 1997 and to Tenerife in 1998. I loved Lanzorote and Gran Canaria but Tenerfie I went to with a friend for a sun holiday - mistakenly i went to Playa de Las Americas at the busiest time of the season - argh.

Gran Canaria is nice, the main town is Las Palmas and just down the road is the Masapalomas sand dunes and Puerto Rico where I stayed.

Lanzorote is nice too, very relaxed, more suitable to families and couples than singles. Lots of bars and cafes.

Tenerife - Playa de Las Americas is the opposite, ideal for singles loving nightlife and to meet people. The average age is around 18-25 and peak season you cant move wherever you go, so keep that in mind when visiting.
