Our Community of Expatriates on the Canary Islands Is Pleased to Meet You!

Hola y bienvenido a Las Islas Canarias, or hello and welcome to the Canary Islands! If you are reading this, you are probably either thinking of relocating to the Canaries or have done so recently — in either case, there's probably a host of questions for which you need answers. With InterNations, you've come to the right place. Whatever your concern, you can be sure that someone has been there before and wondered exactly the same thing. Which Canary Island should I choose? Will I need a work permit (Residencia)? What about Spanish banks? Our trusted expat community is only too happy to help.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Singapore or Dakar.

Learn What It's Like to Live on the Canary Islands

Located off the coast of Morocco, the Canary Islands are one of Spain's autonomous communities and are comprised of several volcanic islands, of which Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, and Fuerteventura are the largest and most densely populated. The sub-tropical climate attracts vacationers and new residents from across the globe. Tourism is the islands' main source of income, with 12 million visitors descending every year, and as the season is not limited to summer, there are opportunities for employment all year round. Small wonder the islands are so popular when they boast the amazing sand dunes of Maspalomas in Gran Canaria and the stunning Mount Teide National Park on Tenerife. As with mainland Spain, football is a national obsession, while Fuerteventura is the place to go for windsurfing enthusiasts — it even hosts the Windsurfing and Kiteboarding World Cup.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Paris or Berlin, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

The Network for Like-Minded Expatriates on the Canary Islands

InterNations is a unique community where you can meet fellow expats in a safe environment. We organize regular social events on the different islands; foodies can indulge their passion with Canary Islands DinnerNations, while the Tenerife EcoExplorers Group explores the island's many hiking routes. You can also join our larger community-wide events to meet expats and global minds from around the world.

    A vacation paradise can be quite boring for a traveling spouse. So I joined InterNations and met many interesting expats on Teneriffe.
