LONDON, June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

-Geordies head to the Spanish Islands in 2012, with Tenerife, Majorca and Gran Canaria topping the list, according to the leading travel retailer-

The top three destinations for people flying from Newcastle Airport in 2012 are Tenerife South, Palma de Mallorca and Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, say Holiday Hypermarket, a UK based holiday comparison community.

The unique Canary Islands off the northwest coast of Africa, with their black beaches, volcanic landscapes and tree-lined cities, are popular among families. Wildlife and theme parks, scuba diving and child-friendly hotels are just some of the attractions that bring visitors from Newcastle to Tenerife and the neighbouring islands, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

The four main Balearic Islands in the western Mediterranean Sea - Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera - provide seaside holidays that are a traditional treat for British holidaymakers, but with an exotic island twist. They're also popular among Brits seeking celeb-style clubbing, complete with beaches, foam and fiesta parties.

Calum MacDonald, Marketing Manager at Holiday Hypermarket, comments "It's no coincidence that these destinations appeal to Geordies since they can enjoy the relaxed and luxurious pace of life, which gives them a well-earned break from the bustle of the city, as well as immersing themselves in the Spanish and Catalan culture.

"The combination of sun, sea and local cuisine has a unique appeal, and the beautiful environment, filled with fun-packed attractions, is safe for young children."
