The landscape is dramatic and varied, ranging from beautiful beaches, magical sunsets, lunar landscapes and lush, palm-filled valleys.  The Islands are controlled by strict building and tourism regulations so you will rarely see high rise hotels. Instead, the Islands are populated by typical Canarian style houses in rural areas, and plush five star hotels in the resorts.

Both the Islands are fast becoming popular destinations for weddings and other celebrations, they offer something unique and magical for everybody.
