The Canary Islands are an opulent archipelago bestowed with all the lush natural beauty.

The Timanfaya National Park is an abandoned wasteland which is located on the south-western region of the island of Lanzarote.

This park has been included in the category of biological reserves by UNESCO in 1993. You can really enjoy a guided tour of this park in a coach.

The National Park is also made up of volcanic lands and is the highest point of the Atlantic Ocean with elevation up to 3.718 metres, the National Park El Teidea is also the loftiest mountain in Spain. This mountain offers a mesmerizing sight to the visitors with its 80 kilometres wide crater. You can reach the summit of the peak on your own but can go up to 3600 metres via a cableway. You can only enter the park if you take permission beforehand from the park authorities. To enter the crater you then board a cross-county car and then walk.

Playa de los Cristianos on Tenerife is also another attractive beach situated on this place and enthrals visitors with its translucent waters. Located near a bucolic fishing village, the state-of-the-art infrastructure of this place definitely makes it an alluring place for visitors.
