Temperatures continue to drop as we enter into the Canarian Winter season. December is one of the coolest months of the year and has the highest probability of rainfall. The sea temperature also falls and the general weather conditions change from the weather pattern seen in previous months.
We still have 7 hours of sunshine a day and it’s normal to experience a mixture of cloud and sunny spells throughout the day. The contrast between the warm climate of the coastal areas and the colder climate in the higher levels and the North of the Island becomes evident once again, although there is no reason why you can't spend a few hours on the beach on Christmas Day.
