Gran Canaria

Lanzarote

La Palma

From these larger islands, a connecting flight can then be caught to one of the archipelago’s three smaller main islands:

La Graciosa

There are also a number of much smaller islands and inlets in the archipelago, including Alegranza, Isla de Lobos, Montana Clara, Roque del Oeste, and Roque del Este.

The two busiest international airports on the islands are Tenerife South Airport (TFS), on the largest island of Tenerife, and Gran Canaria Airport (LPA), on the third largest island of Gran Canaria.
