"Packing List" Canary Islands Packing List Tip by outrunner66

Canary Islands What to Pack: 26 reviews and 12 photos


Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If surfing in Fuerteventura take a summer wetsuit with detachable arms and legs and boots to walk across the sharp reefs. Also take a good pair of trainers as walking on the offbeaten track can be difficult.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Plasters, Factor 50 sunblock, Mosquetto repellant, Bleach (keeps away cockroaches)

Photo Equipment: If you have not bought a camera or video camera its best to wait until you get out to Fuerteventura and buy one there. If you travel to Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote a Hi 8mm Video camera new can be bought there for 120. A deccent 35mm zoom camera is around 40% less than in UK.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If going to Fuerteventura to surf during summer take your own board as rented ones are always in short supply during this period. Taking your own board will cost you 45 by airline and must be prebooked before you arrive at airport. If taking a body board there's no problem, will cost you nothing.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
