Lanzarote awaits with its volcano-clad views, palm-fringed beaches, and crystal-clear waters. The journey also includes a visit to Cadiz, Spain's ancient city with a charm that dates back to the Phoenicians, before concluding in Lisbon, Portugal, where unique architecture and delicious custard tarts await.

What is the best month to go to the Canary Islands?

The Canary Islands are renowned for their consistently mild and inviting climate throughout the year. However, for those seeking the perfect beach holiday with warm sea temperatures, the best months to plan your visit are from May to mid-October.

During this extended period, you can bask in the glory of abundant sunshine and delightfully warm weather. This makes it an ideal time for a wide range of outdoor activities, from leisurely sunbathing on picturesque beaches to indulging in refreshing swims in the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. 

Whether you're an adventure enthusiast or simply looking to relax, these months offer the ideal conditions to make your trip to the Canary Islands truly memorable.

How long does it take to sail from Southampton to Canary Islands?

When you embark on a sailing voyage from Southampton to the Canary Islands, you can anticipate spending a leisurely 5 days on board before reaching your first destination. During this time, you'll have the opportunity to unwind and appreciate the tranquillity of the open ocean and make the most of the onboard amenities and activities. This journey provides a perfect balance of relaxation and anticipation as you draw closer to your first stop in the Canary Islands.

What is the most visited island in the Canary Islands?

Among the diverse and enchanting Canary Islands, Tenerife stands out as the ultimate tourist hotspot. Its popularity is well-deserved, thanks to a plethora of attractions that cater to a wide range of interests. Tenerife Canary Islands boasts pristine sandy beaches that beckon sun worshippers, a vibrant nightlife scene that comes alive after dark, and the awe-inspiring Teide National Park. This national park is home to Spain's highest peak, Mount Teide, a geological wonder that attracts nature enthusiasts and hikers from around the world.

Which is the warmest Canary Island now?

The distinction of being the warmest Canary Island can vary depending on the season and specific weather patterns. However, during the height of summer, which typically spans from July to September, the eastern islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura tend to experience slightly higher daytime temperatures. These islands often see daytime highs around 28/29 °C (82/84 °F) during this period. 

It's important to emphasise that regardless of which Canary Island you choose to visit during the summer months, you can expect pleasantly warm temperatures that invite you to embrace the sun and enjoy the balmy climate.  Each island offers its unique charm and attractions, ensuring an unforgettable experience no matter where you decide to travel.
