Canary Islands, Spain


The Canary Islands of Spain located in the Atlantic Ocean,  62 miles west of Morocco at the closest point. The Canary Islands, which are also known informally as the Canaries, offer a spectacular cruising ground, with a varied backdrop. All of the seven main islands –Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro – are within a day’ssail of each other, yet they each have their own unique character and some even have a difference in climate. Most of the marinas and harbours have excellent facilities, improved in recent years by the influx of foreign yachts. These Spanish islands pose no problem for sailors arriving from other EU countries. English is spoken widely and foreign yachts are welcomed.
