Best Time to Visit the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands offer visitors a unique combination of stunning beaches, beautiful landscapes, and vibrant culture.

With its mild climate and year-round sunshine, it’s no wonder why so many travelers flock to the islands each year. But when is the best time to go if you want to get the most out of your visit?

Let’s take a look at what the Canary Islands have in store for you depending on what time of year you choose to visit.

Summertime (June to August)

The summer months are the most popular time of year to visit the Canary Islands. The temperatures are hot during this period, with highs usually reaching around 24-28 degrees Celsius (75-82 Fahrenheit).

This makes it perfect for beach activities as well as sightseeing and exploring. The downside is that accommodation prices tend to be higher and there can be more crowds during this time of year than other times.

Autumn (September to November)

Autumn is an excellent time for visiting the Canary Islands because temperatures remain warm but accommodation prices tend to be lower than in the summer months.

There are also fewer people around so you can enjoy some peaceful moments at tourist attractions like Teide National Park or Maspalomas Dunes without having to battle through hordes of tourists.

In addition, autumn brings with it plenty of festivals and cultural events that are worth checking out while you’re there.

Winter (December to February)

The winter months may not be ideal for beach activities, but they do offer some advantages over other times of year – namely cheaper accommodation prices and fewer tourists.

In addition, temperatures remain relatively mild during this period so it’s still possible to enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking or cycling without having too much difficulty due to extreme heat or cold. And if you’re lucky enough, you might even get some snow in higher altitudes!

Spring (March to May)

Spring is another great season for visiting the Canary Islands since temperatures start rising again but accommodation prices remain fairly low compared with summertime rates.

This is also an excellent time for birdwatching since migratory birds arrive in large numbers from Europe and Africa during this period before migrating back again later in the summertime.


As you can see, there is something special about each season when it comes time to visit the Canary Islands – so pick one that suits your budget and interests best!

No matter what time of year you choose though, there will always be something amazing waiting for you on these beautiful islands!
