The Canary Islands (Islas Canarias) are much closer to the coast of Africa than to mainland Spain and it is the mid-Atlantic location that accounts for the mild climate. While best known for their white, pristine beaches, the 7 islands, all of volcanic origin, offer strikingly diverse landscapes, with sub-tropical rainforests, arid plains, pine woods, sand dunes, mountain peaks and remarkable flora.
