June

The temperatures in June can range from 20ºC to 35ºC so if you plan to come in the summer, you’d better like it hot! The Atlantic is about 10ºC colder than the Med so you can have a refreshing dip if you get too warm. The sun is up until about 9pm in June so you can eat dinner al fresco and watch the sun set over the ocean. Evenings are warm, about 18ºC, and rain is almost unheard of between June and September. You can enjoy the light evenings with some Canarian Cooking in one of the many restaurants dotted around.

The Las Palmas Opera Festival draws to an end in June, so be quick if you want to watch a show. For other nightlife, you could try the Gran Casino Las Palmas or the Tamarindos Casino in San Agustín. You need to bring a passport for identification and smart dress is recommended.

Cactualdea Park is open every day. This is a tropical garden in San Nicolas de Tolentino, with about 1200 species of cacti on display. Make sure you use a high factor sun cream if you visit the island in June because the sun can be deceptively fierce, especially if it is breezy. Even I get burnt sometimes and I should be used to it by now!
