Best time to go

The Canary Islands have beautiful weather, warm water temperatures, and great swell year-round. With a water temperature between 18-25Cº, it’s possible to surf throughout the year.

The waves start to get stronger during the winter months, from September to April, and this is also the best surf season for intermediate and advanced surfers. With its peak between December and March, the big winter swells from the Atlantic Ocean hit the islands, creating ideal surf conditions.

Don’t leave the Canary Islands without trying its local sauce, handmade Mojo, that is placed on most dishes in local restaurants and markets.
