Breaks in the Canary Islands are growing in popularity among holiday makers, with the number of tourists visiting the islands in February at its highest in 15 years.
Figures released from the Department of Tourism show 930,000 experienced the sun-drenched region last month, a 22.4 per cent rise on the numbers seen last year, RCI Ventures reported.
The resorts of Tenerife saw the biggest increase of almost 20 per cent, and with the island's beautiful weather and sandy beaches it's easy to see why.
Those visiting Tenerife are greeted by all-year-round sunshine, a dramatic coastline and crystal clear blue waters.
Most of the popular beaches are located on the south of the island, but other regions boast the dramatic dark sand beaches created by the island's volcanic geography.
At night, holiday makers can either soak up culture with a Flamenco display, or simple relax with a long, leisurely meal.
In addition, Gran Canaria was shown to have the second largest increase in visitors at almost 19 per cent.
