The Canary Islands belong to the legend of Atlantis, the submerged continent, made popular since Antiquity by the Greek philosopher Plato (380 B.C.). The name "Canarias" was mentioned by Plutarc and Pliny the Elder, before the islands disappeared from the western minds until the 14th century, when they were rediscovered by the European navigators.

Most tourists arriving at one of the Canary Island’s airports are desperate to feel the sun on their faces after a tiring journey. They are loaded onto the tour operators’ coaches and driven at great speed to their idyllic beach resort or quiet rural retreat - many are not to be seen or heard of again until the morning of their return flight home.

Yet whilst our tourists are busy sunbathing, enjoying a drink on their balconies, sailing, swimming or snorkelling, the ‘real’ Canary Islands are here and ready to explore. The Canary Islander hopes to enlighten our many visitors about the real Canary Islands and why Christopher Columbus described them as “These Fortunate Isles”.
