Oceanic climate. The Canaries are nicknamed the "islands of eternal spring". The average temperature does not exceed 25°C in August and does not fall below 18°C in January. This remarkable constancy is due to the cool currents, the north-easterly trade winds and the proximity of Africa. The water temperature stays between 18°C and 24°C all year round.
It's worth noting that there are no trees on the islands of Lanzarote and La Graciosa, so there's no shade, although the heat isn't too bad because it's often windy.
