San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/05/2012 -- Many people from Britain, Ireland and other European countries flock to the Canary Islands every year for a holiday. These volcanic islands boast a mild climate that is particularly appealing to Europeans wanting to escape the harsh winter weather at home. Although the Canary Islands are located off the northwest coast of mainland Africa, they are Spanish owned and therefore form an outermost region of the EU.
With a coastline of about 1500 km, there are plenty of opportunities for tourists to take part in water sports or just lie on the beach soaking up the sun.
More than 10 million tourists visit the Canary Islands every year, with Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura being the most popular destinations. However, even the smaller islands of El Hierro, La Gomera and La Palma are appealing to geologists and those looking to get off the beaten track.
One site that tourists have been turning to for information about the islands is canaryislandstourist.com. The site features a wealth of useful facts about the Canary Islands, and as all the individual islands are listed on the menu bar down the left side of each page, visitors can easily navigate their way to the information they want.
The Canary Islands History page gives a fascinating insight into the mystique that still surrounds the ancient history of the islands. As the site explains, “The Canary Islands History record is mystical, mythological, complex and simple at the same time, once all the theories have been thoroughly examined”. The true history of the islands is only now being revealed as archaeologists excavate the few sites that are known to exist.
Canary Islands Tourist also has a high quality digital gallery with pictures of the islands, where prospective visitors can browse through photos of some of the many attractions the islands have to offer, including the beaches.
