Discover why the Canary Islands have the best climate in the world at thebestclimateintheworld.com The climate in the Canary Islands is unique. The stable temperatures, sunny days and exceptionally clear skies are just perfect to enjoy the sun and the stars all year round, making the islands the ideal place to have fun outdoors, enjoy the bright side of life and revitalise the spirit. The reason for this exceptional climate can be found in their perfect geographic location, together with the warm influence of the anti-cyclone blowing from the Azores during the winter months, thus protecting the islands from low temperatures. In summer, the soft sea breeze of the Trade Winds and the ocean current from the Golf Stream help maintain cooler temperatures. This is why many experts and millions of Europeans consider the climate of the Canary Islands the best in the world.

Beaches

for everyone In the Canary Islands you can enjoy miles of spectacular beaches of all colours.

Besides, depending on what you’re planning to do that day and who you’re with, there’ll always be an ideal beach close by. From unspoiled and solitary beaches where you can only hear the sound of the sea, to beaches where you can have a good time with your family or with friends; beach bars, restaurants, surfing schools, places to rent kayaks and skates… everything you need for a fun beach day on the islands.


The energy

awaits you Magical. You are looking for the perfect word to describe nature in the Canary Islands and the only one that comes to mind is – “magical”. Magical are the surprising landscapes of craters, and the unusual colours of the lava and volcanic ash. Magical are the lush millenary forests. Magical is the vision of the shining dunes beside the sea and the stars in the clearest skies in Europe. And now that you’ve discovered the magic, think about the volcanic energy which has created the Canary Islands and that floods your spirit and a second word comes to mind – energy!

How to get there The Canary Islands are very close to Europe.

Many cruise ships also call in at some of the Canary Islands.

Getting from one island to another It’s easy to travel between the islands, either by plane or by ship. A day excursion to any of the islands, or a longer stay, is an option we recommend during your holiday, including the small, wonderful islands of La Graciosa and Isla de Lobos. www.hellocanaryislands.com/ moving-around-within-island By air: www.bintercanarias.com www.canaryfly.es www.aena.es By sea www.biosferaexpress.com www.fredolsen.es www.navieraarmas.com www.lineasromero.com
