Overview

The Canary Islands (Spanish: Islas Canarias) are an Atlantic territory of Spain on the west coast of Africa, near to Morocco, Cape Verde and the archipelagos of the Azores Islands and Madeira Islands.

Gran Canaria - The largest island by population, its capital city (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) has the shared title of capital of the Canaries. Green and steep in the north, dry and flat in the south.

Lanzarote - Low lying and arid, with a spectacular volcanic landscape in the west of the island (National Park of Timanfaya). The capital is Arrecife and has its own airport. Lanzarote is of volcanic origin.

Tenerife - The island of Tenerife is the largest in the Canaries but its oldest mountain ranges are young compared to the neighboring islands. The highest mountain of Spain, El Teide is in Tenerife and is the third largest volcano in the world. The leading city is Santa Cruz de Tenerife, home to the Canary Island Parliament. With a population of 899,000 people, it is the most populated island.
