Is Tenerife part of Spain or Africa?

Tenerife is part of Canary Islands and they belong to Spain. It is off the coast of Africa, but not part of Africa (not true!).Actually the Canary islands are geographically considered part of the African Atlas mountain range and therefore are considered part of the African continent. In fact you can see parts of Moroccos and Western Sahara from the eastern part of the Islands.In the same way that the U.K owns Bermuda (Part of North America) or The Falkland Islands (South America), and used to own Hong Kong (Part of Asia), the Canaries exist on a seperate continent to the mother country of Spain. Likewise other nations that exist in two continents are Russia (Europe and Asia), Turkey (Europe and Asia) and Egypt (Africa and Asia).
