The Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago off the coast of northwestern Africa. Famous for their black and white sand beaches, the Canary Islands are dominated by Mt. Teide.

The sometimes-active volcano, has its own astronomical observatory and it is part of Teide National Park. Tenerife is the largest among the Canary Islands, and the most popular one.

The name comes from the Latin name Canariae Insulae, meaning Islands of the Dogs.

The Canary Islands appeared from different volcanic eruptions along several years. As a result, the sediment of the lava have become black sand. The black sand is one of the most prominent features of the Canary Islands. And the beaches are amazing.
