CLIMATE IN CANARY ISLANDS – January, February, March and April.

Do you want to organize a holiday in the Canary Islands but can not choose the best period? Or are you already packing your suitcase and not knowing what the weather you are looking for? Or simply you’re curious because you’ve heard of it from a friend and you want to check if it really is the way it told you? Perfect below we will try to give you all the information you need. Let’s start by saying that in the archipelago of the Canary Islands the climate is pleasant all year round! The islands in fact are inserted in that band delta of the “eternal spring”.

Considered by many as the “best climate in the world” that of the Canary Islands always offers pleasant mild winters and hot summers but almost never too much.
But now let’s go to see specifically the Canarian climate in the first part of the year, from January to April.


January is clearly the period of the “colder” year in the Canaries. To be clear, it is very similar to our springs in Italy. So specifying that in this article we will refer more to the coastal and tourist areas of the islands and especially to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, we can say that you will have absolutely pleasant weeks, where you can stay comfortably on the beach to sunbathe and enjoy the warm sun of the African latitude, alternating with more than a half-season weeks, with clouds, some rain and wind.

January in the Canary Islands, however, is a very popular month for families especially in northern Europe to visit the Canary Islands because only 4 hours away you can avoid the much stiffer European winter.

The situation in February in fact changes little, continue to alternate weekly “lucky good weather and early summer heat” with others more fresh. Clearly an advice is to remember to bring to carry even long dresses, a sweater and even a light jacket to be used especially in the evening or when it blows.

The waters of the sea in these months are quite chilly so, at least if you are not daring the bath in the ocean will not be very easy. Better pools heated in hotels.

Marzo invece è difatto il mese nel quale si ha una sorta di svolta alle Canarie. E’ solitamente in questo mese infatti che si ha il passaggio verso una stagione più stabile, dove le precipitazioni iniziano a sparire e le giornate primaverili iniziano a farla da padrone.

In March at the Canary Islands you can almost always enjoy the beach and start taking a few more bathes in the sea because slowly the waters start to warm up slightly even if the Canaries will never be very hot.

In the evening pay attention to always go out in short sleeves (especially in the first half of the month) it is always better to bring something more pesante behind because some cooler evening could surprise you.

In April, however, the climate of the Canary Islands is entering its best phase with a view to vacationing the sea, swimming and plenty of sun. Despite the occasional wind still rises (typical of the islands in the middle of the ocean) the days are long and sunny, the rainfall is increasingly scarce and the waters of the ocean begin to warm up the most convinced way. April is a highly recommended month for a holiday on the islands of the eternal spring.

Even in the evening you can almost always go out in light clothing and thus have a clear early summer.
