The hottest of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote sees average temperatures of between 20-28ºC during the winter months. Tourists often prefer visiting during the winter, as the nights are slightly cooler but you can still hit the beach during the day! As the flattest Canary Island, there is also very little rain, so it’s a great escape if you’re hoping for a break from miserable winter drizzle.

Weather throughout Tenerife can vary between coastlines, however Tenerife South (the location of our popular Villa Maria resort) has average winter temperatures of 20-28ºC. You’ll be able to go to the beach all year round, although there is slightly more rainfall in the winter months. Despite this, September-March is a perfect time to visit if you want winter warmth without the crowds- and the island will be in full bloom, so the scenery will be beautiful!
