Hottest Canary Islands in September

 By Anna Scriven

As summer draws to a close, the Canary Islands remain hot and sunny. The resorts should be quieter and slightly cheaper in September than in the school holidays.

Lanzarote is the hottest island in September, but the other islands receive more hours of sunshine per day. In truth, the difference in temperature isn’t too noticeable at this time of year and all the islands are warm enough for swimming and sunbathing.
