Current and 10 Day weather in Canary Islands Spain

Canary Islands Weather: Above you can view the latest weather in the main Canary Islands and get a 10 day weather forecast for the various destinations in the Canaries archipelago.

The Canary Islands weather featured above is for the five main holiday islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and La Palma. You can also get a Canary Islands weather, 10 day forecast, by following any of the '10 Day' links provided.

Tenerife: Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and is a very popular holiday destination especially during the winter months when temperatures are more pleasant and the weather not so humid. There are a good selection of hotels and holiday rental accommodation.

Gran Canaria: Gran Canaria is a very popular holiday destination with the wonderful all year round warm weather, being the main draw, it is especially popular with the British and North Europeans during the winter months, desperate to escape the damp and cold weather of their native countries.

Lanzarote: The most easterly of the Canary Islands and the closest to the African coast, Lanzarote has been a popular holiday destination for over 40 years and is especially popular during the winter time due to its fine weather.

Fuerteventura: The 2nd largest of the Canary Islands and is growing in popularity as a tourist destination, Fuerteventura has the best beaches of all the Canaries and has the driest weather, with the lowest rainfall, the capital of the island is Puerto del Rosario, which is also the location of the island's airport.

La Palma: The "wettest" of the Canary Islands, averaging about 63 days of rain per year, La Palma is also the greenest and lushest of the Canaries, earning it the nickname "The Green Island" (La Isla Verde). While the weather in La Palma may not be so dry as the other islands, its green look more than compensates.

La Gomera: the second smallest of the main Canary Islands, having an area of just 378 square kilometres. Volcanic in nature, La Gomera is often referred to as "Isla Redonda" (Round Island) due to its circular shape, its coastline is rugged and steep especially in the west.

El Hierro: Smallest of the main Canary Islands group, El Hierro is also the most westerly, in fact it was the most westerly point known to ancient European geographers. Covering an area of just 278 square kilometres and having a population of just over 10,000, El Hierro has only one sizeable town, Valverde, and is virtually untouched by tourism.

We are very sorry but the Canary Islands weather is not currently available for the islands of La Gomera and El Hierro.

The Canary Islands weather varies considerably from island to island and even from north to south of a specific island, as in the case of Tenerife, which has a humid, damp north and an arid, dry south. The driest island is Fuerteventura and the wettest, La Palma.
