Atlantic Islands Cruises
There are plenty of islands that litter the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and a cruise holiday is the ideal way in which to explore everything that they have to offer.
Sitting off the coast of Africa, the collection of islands are all popular holiday destinations in their own right, but combine them together and it only serves to increase the appeal for visitors who want to embrace everything they have to offer.
The Canary Islands off the coast of Morocco are one of the top destinations for someone looking for summer sun, but are also a popular option for those embarking on a cruise holiday.
That’s largely because you won’t be restricted to visiting just one island, and can instead spend your time embracing the very best bits of the entire Spanish archipelago.
That could include a trip to visit the towering peak of Mount Teide on Tenerife, some time exploring the vast dunes around Maspalomas on Gran Canaria or the opportunity to take in the volcanic landscapes of Fuerteventura.
There’ll be plenty of opportunity to visit thriving towns and villages that litter the coastal regions, offering an insight into island life.
Located to the north of the Canary Islands, the island of Madeira is another that is popular with overseas visitors who are drawn in by the scenic surroundings and the opportunity to explore the traditions of the capital city Funchal.
It’s a similar story when it comes to the Azores, which sit around 800 miles off the coast of Portugal, and are home to impressive landscapes shaped by thousands of years of volcanic activity.
Each of the nine islands has its own unique character and are well worth visiting if your cruise allows, with learning more about the history and culture of the islands being one thing to do whilst ashore.
Add into the mix the white sands and clear waters of Cape Verde and you’ll soon realise that a cruise around the Atlantic Islands is a match for anywhere else.
