Montaña Clara (pronounced: [monˈtaɲa ˈklaɾa]) (Spanish meaning "light-colored mountain") is a small uninhabited islet belonging to the so-called Chinijo Archipelago, in the northeastern part of the Canary Islands, only a short distance (about 2 km) northwest of La Graciosa. The islet area is only 1.33 km². The highest point of the island is 256 m above sea level.

Montaña Clara Island

Being a refuge for marine birds, the island is part of the integral nature reserve Los Islotes, which is part of the natural park Chinijo Archipelago.[1][2] In August 2007 the island was offered for sale by the heirs to the last owner, Mariano López Socas, who was mayor of a small Lanzarote town; asking price: 9 million euros.[3]
