What's the weather like in the Canary Islands in September?
Dubbed the ‘Islands of Eternal Spring’ for their pleasant year-round climate, the Canary Islands are a popular destination in the Atlantic Ocean. The weather changes slightly depending on which island you visit, but in general the Canaries have great holiday weather all year round, with temperatures at their peak in September. This month sees fewer crowds than the high season, making it a great time to visit the Canary Islands for relaxing days at the beach or by the pool.
With an average of 25ºC, Lanzarote sees the warmest temperatures of all the Canary Islands during September. Highs reach 29ºC, while the average low’s a lovely 21ºC after sunset. Gran Canaria is only slightly cooler at an average of 24ºC, while in Tenerife it’s 23ºC. The sun shines for around eight hours each day at this time of year, so remember to come prepared with plenty of sun cream. There’s almost no rain in the Canaries in September, with every island receiving less than 10mm across the month. If you want to go for a dip in the sea, the Atlantic Ocean is at its warmest annual temperature, between 22ºC and 24ºC depending on where you go.
