Hottest Canary Islands in May

 By Anna Scriven

The UK may be warming up in May but it can’t compete with the nine hours of daily sunshine found in the Canary Islands. Stock up on suncream, you’ll need it!

Fuerteventura and Lanzarote are the hottest islands this month, with practically no rain predicted. However, the sea will be slightly warmer in Tenerife and Gran Canaria if you are planning a beach getaway.
