USA Today once highlighted the capital city of Grand Canary one of the cities with the world's best weather, based on a study conducted by the University of Siracusa.

Grand Canary has a tropical, steady climate year-round, with temperatures averaging between 22 degrees C (approximately 72 degrees F) in the winter and 29 degrees C (approximately 85 degrees F) in the summer.*  In the coastal regions, it is sunny almost all the time.  Sea breezes and trade winds in the summer help keep the coastal areas from becoming unbearably warm, so there really is never a bad time to visit Grand Canary.  The warmest months are generally June through September, while the cooler months are November through February.

If you grow tired of the warmth and sun, you can venture into the mountains.  While most of the island does have year round warm weather, Grand Canary also features "microclimates" due to its varied landscape - while it can be warm and sunny in the coastal regions, it can be freezing and snowing in the mountains (often just an hour's drive away)! 


*These temperatures are for Las Palmas on the northern side of the island. It could be as much as 10 degrees warmer elsewhere, particularly as you head south.
