Warmest Canary island in December

I stayed several time in December in Gran Canaria. Often, in december, in Puerto Rico, temperatures even reach 30 degrees. Staying at the beach is fantastic! Also children enter in the sea, as you can see in the image above. Here I was in Playa Amadores, near my friend's house.


In general, the Canary Islands have a mild climate all year but not all the  places are so warm. Over the years, in winter I visited them all.

For those who want to spend the Christmas and New Year's Eve in the beach, sunbathing, is the better to stay in Tenerife o Gran Canaria.
Now I explain to you in which countries it is better to stay in Tenerife and Gran Canaria, in winter.

The warmest Canary island in december is Gran Canaria: the southwestern region. Due to its geography, this area remains protected by strong winds, beaches too, so it is a pleasure sunbathe and lying on the beach.

So if you want to stay in the warmest area of Gran Canaria, in the peak season, it is better to book in advance otherwise, the best accommodation and cheap apartments, will no longer be available.

Here I selected the best accommodations for you to spend a New Year's Eve on the beach.

See on the map the → Cheapest accommodation in Puerto Rico.

Amazing views. Close to the famous Amadores beach, great for autumn-winter stays. Ideal for couples. Romantic sunset.

only for adults guests (no children) in Puerto Rico near the harbor.

Beautiful resort located in the hottest and low windy part of Gran Canaria: Puerto de Mogan. Small but pretty beach surrounded by shops. A village made up of white houses with colorful flowers on the balconies. Intimate, full of restaurants, ideal for couples or for families with children.

Hottest canary island in december, January, february

The New Year's Eve of  Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas is a good alternative if you do not find an accommodation in the southwest area of Gran Canaria. The beach is long but often windy and colder than Puerto Rico, Amadores and Puerto de Mogan.

If you stay in Maspalomas you can get to best beaches for winter holiday by bus or car: only 10-15 km away.

To know:
I would point out that it is still difficult to find cheap apartments if you book in periods like Christmas, New Year's Eve, Carnival, Easter... because lots of tourists, from all over Europe, are wintering here. Italians prefer stay in hotels but British, Norwegian, Finnish, German... prefer to stay in self-catering apartments.

My accommodation tips:
👉 Warmest part of Tenerife close to the beach.
👉 Map of cheapest accommodation in Playa de las Americas.

I hope that with my tips about warmest Canary Island, you will choose the perfect place for your holiday and you will come back to home very tanned.
