Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago which forms one of the Spanish Autonomous Communities. The archipelago is located just off the northwest coast of mainland Africa, 100 km west of the border between Morocco and the Western Sahara.

The Canary Islands economy is based primarily on international tourism.

There are seven main islands in the Canary chain, divided for administrative reasons into two provinces: Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which includes the islands of Tenerife, La Palma, Gomera and Hierro, and Las Palmas, which includes the islands of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

The Canary Islands are a tropical paradise, with lush vegetation thriving in the fertile volcanic soil, beautiful beaches, and the warm, dry weather you'd expect in a holiday haven.

There are three regions: the central islands of Gran Canaria and Tenerife are the largest and the highest, the eastern islands of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, which are flat and very dry, and the western islands of La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera, which are smaller, but very humid.

Canary Islands has great natural attractions, climate and beaches make the islands a major tourist destination, being visited each year by about 10 million people. Among the islands, Tenerife is the most number of tourists received annually, followed by Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. The archipelago pincipal tourist attraction is the Teide National Park (in Tenerife) where the highest mountain in Spain and third largest volcano in the world (the mount Teide), receives over 2.8 million visitors annually.

All the islands share a constant spring climate, but a visitor hopping from one to another would have no trouble telling the islands apart, with the terrain ranging from sub-tropical to volcanic desert strewn with cactus, from green cliffs filled with flowers to arid sand dunes off the sea shore.

Tenerife is the largest island in the Canary archipelago, with amazing views of fertile valleys and the gigantic 29 km crater known as Las Caņadas del Teide from the mountain chain which splits the island. Tenerife's capital is Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a modern city known for its friendliness, as well as its beautiful gardens.

The second-largest island is Gran Canaria, whose famous capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, has a beautiful Gothic Cathedral gracing its old quarter, lined with magnificently varied and colorful flowers and plants as well as splendid and large beaches -- La Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas.

The island of La Palma, always called the "Beautiful Island," should be noted for its lush beauty and verdant forests as well as the important historical role the Santa Cruz de La Palma harbor had in the trade between Europe and America
