There are also six tiny Canary Islands:
La Graciosa Alegranza, Los Lobos, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste. La Graciosa is the only inhabited island where moderate tourism has developed. Surfers adore the waves in front of La Graciosa. For hiking fans and for cycling the island offers some great locations and if you're looking for cheap accomodation, you'll find something appropriate. The other islands form a natural reserve for birds and cannot be reached by the ferry. Also you're only allowed to step on the islands if you have special permission. They are located north of Lanzarote and form the most northern area of the Canary Islands.
