What’s the weather like in the Canary Islands in March?
Located off the coast of North Africa in the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands have a spring-like climate all year round with warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. In March the region’s mild and dry, perfect if you want to relax in the sunshine while avoiding the intense heat of more tropical destinations. From time to time the Calima winds from the Sahara bring hotter temperatures to the islands, covering them in a fine layer of sand.
On the most easterly island, Lanzarote, average temperatures in March hover around 19°C, with highs of 23°C in the hottest part of the day. At night temperatures drop to around 15°C, so you’ll need warm layers for evenings out. Just 10mm of rain is expected over the course of the month. Further west on the island of Tenerife, the average temperature is a degree lower than Lanzarote at 18°C, with highs of 21°C, lows of 14°C, and around four wet days bringing 40mm of rain.
