Hottest Canary Islands in August

 By Anna Scriven

The Canary Islands are hot at the height of summer, but never unbearably so. Humidity remains low compared to much of mainland Europe, so there’s no need to worry about overheating if you want to explore.

Lanzarote is the hottest island in August, with the nights being as warm as days in much of England. However, all the Canary Islands are hot at this time of year and you will be guaranteed sunshine whichever you choose.
