The Atlantic winning the fight against the desert in a couple of islands.
The Canary islands may come as a surprise to anyone expecting the verdant beauty of the Azores or Madeira, or the warm waters of the Balearic Islands.
Closer to the aridity of the neighboring desert, the islands reveal a different kind of landscape and beauty, with the cold current of the Canaries refreshing the beaches.
Highlights in the Canary Islands:
Teide, in Tenerife, Puerto de la Cruz and the surrounding landscape, the beach at Maspalomas, Mogan, and some tourist entertainment initiatives.
