Hottest Canary Island in March
March is the start of spring when the temperature is beginning to increase. This month is like February in many ways. Tenerife tends to get plenty of rain as the other islands are seeing a significant decrease.
The average monthly temperature in Tenerife and Fuerteventura is now 18 Celisus. Lanzarote and Gran Canaria are now warming to 19 Celsius. The Sea temperature is also increasing to 19 Celsius on average. Some of the other islands are remaining at 18 Celsius.
Hottest Canary Island in March – Gran Canaria
The vote goes to Gran Canaria due to the fact that the Sea temperature is warmer than Lanzarote. The levels of rainfall and the outdoor temperature are identical between the two. Both will be warm whichever you decide to visit.
Hottest Canary Island in February
The hottest Canary Island in February is another 3-way tie. Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote all reach 18 Celsius.
Tenerife remains at 17 Celsius during this month but is still the place to be in February. The Sea temperature is also very similar across all the islands with an average of 18 Celsius.
Tenerife tends to see more rainfall in February. More than the other islands with Fuerteventura receiving the least rain.
Hottest in February – Fuerteventura
Preference is for Fuerteventura despite there being little between the other islands. There is less rainfall in February than anywhere else.
This beautiful island is also approaching the windy season. Fuerteventura is popular for windsurfing and other board activities. The warm air coming from the Sahara Desert is enough to get our vote.
Hottest Canary Island in January
January is one of the most popular months for tourism in the Canary Islands. There are plenty of warm temperatures still on offer wherever you go.
January is the coldest month but the temperature is unlikely to drop much below 17 Celsius. There is still plenty of rainfall around but a significant decrease from December.
The hottest average temperature is 18 Celsius for both Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria. Tenerife and Lanzarote both drop to 17 Celsius.
Warmest in January – Gran Canaria
There is little to choose between Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura. Both have the same outside and sea temperature. There is a touch more rainfall in Gran Canaria but not much more.
Our preference is for Gran Canaria. The popular resorts of Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés will likely be much busier at the beginning of the year.
Warmest Canary Island in December
December is generally a great time to visit the Canaries. The temperature is plummeting further north. These islands maintain a warm temperature of around 18-19 Celsius.
Christmas is also a special time to enjoy a winter holiday. The fact you can sunbathe and even swim in the sea is alien to most Europeans.
Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura share the hottest temperature during December. You can expect a temperature of 19 Celsius on each island.
Most heading for winter sunshine do not want to see too much rainfall. Unfortunately it rains more in December than any other month generally.
Gran Canaria can see double the rainfall of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura during December. You are likely to see around 6 or 7 days of rain.
Hottest in December – Lanzarote
Fuerteventura does not get as much rain as Lanzarote and there will be fewer days of rainfall. There is very little difference between the two islands. Our preference is for Lanzarote as the sea temperature is warmer at around 20 Celsius.
Hottest Canary Island in October
There is little to choose between the four main islands with all seeing an average temperature of 23 Celsius. The eastern islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura see less rainfall in October. Gran Canaria and Tenerife will see more rain but the sea is quite a bit warmer. Wherever you decide to go will see at least 2 – 3 rainy days during this month. The daily high may be a touch higher at times to the east but not by much.
Warmest in October – Tenerife
There is no escaping the rain in October unless you are fortunate. The sea temperature in Gran Canaria will be warmer than the eastern islands but not as warm as Tenerife. The sea temperature of Tenerife will still be at it’s year high of 24 Celsius. This will likely be a shade cooler off the north of the island, southern Tenerife will be warmer now.
