Which canary island is hottest in december?

I stayed several time in December in Gran Canaria. I always choose the same area where my friends have a vacation apartment: Puerto Rico and I lay down on this beautiful beach: Playa de Amadores.

The temperatures even reach 30-35 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.

Hottest Canary Island in December 🌞

 – the short answer -

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

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.

  • Warmest Canary Islands best for nightlife:
I suggest you stay in Tenerife if you are looking for the warmest Canary Island that also have a lively nightlife.
  • Sunniest Canary Islands in winter:
Choose Gran Canaria if you prefer sea life, sunbathing, and a more stable and sunniest climate.

The warmest Canary island in december and January 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.

Best place to stay in Gran Canaria from december to february

Best accommodation to stay in Gran Canaria for the beach:

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

⇨ Apartamentos Mayaguezonly for adults guests (no children) in Puerto Rico near the harbor.

⇨ Warmest Canary island in december - Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa - Beautiful resort located in 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.

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.
