Canary Islands Of Spain
Some 2,500 kilometres southwest of the mainland is the Canaries archipelago. Forming this part of Spain are the 7 Canary Islands which lie in the Atlantic Ocean. These islands are among the top holiday destinations in the world.
This part of the Atlantic enjoys a sub-tropical climate where it rarely gets cold. Some call the Canaries the “Islands of Eternal Spring” a reference to the weather here. The climate is one of the main reasons these islands attract so much tourism. As it gets cold further north, tourist travel south to enjoy the warm weather on offer.
The most popular island is Tenerife which also has the biggest population. It’s close neighbour Gran Canaria is next which also see plenty of tourism. Next we have Lanzarote and Fuerteventura which are closest to Western Africa. Making up the 7 there are La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.
