The island of La Palma is known for its excellent climate like the rest of the Canary archipelago. Given the small size of the island and the ruggedness of its terrain we can say it’s like a small continent and if the weather is bad you can switch between the slopes and find perfect time. Throughout the year the climate is mild with an average of 20°. Temperatures vary between 20° C and 21° C in January and 26º C to 28º C in August accompanied by a water temperature ranging from 18º C in February to 23° C in August.

The northeast trades cool winds with the island and brings rains in the western part but they are scarce and produce lush vegetation. Thanks to this phenomenon, this is the only Canary Island that is self sufficient in water.

The Calima or Levante reaches La Palma once or twice a year blowing for no more than three days. It’s a dry wind that brings dust from the Sahara. On the coast the temperatures does not rise thanks to the influence of the sea. The weather can change dramatically in a short time so we advise you to not forget to bring some warm and light clothes and if you plan to go to the mountain don’t forget some protective clothing.
