The beautiful island of La Palma lies in the north-eastern Canary current and the north-eastern trade winds which means it has a sunny climate with year-round moderate temperatures, but is rather cooler than you would expect given the latitude of the island.
Rainfall levels can vary a lot across the island with the NE trade winds bringing moisture to the Canaries, and the altitude of La Palma means that most of this arrives in the north-east. November receives the most rainfall but temperatures remain mild.
La Palma is sometimes affected by winds from the Sahara desert which bring very fine clouds of dust mainly in the summer months of July and August. These months boast a good sunshine record of up to 10 hours a day.
During the autumn and winter months you can expect around 6 hours of sunshine a day with temperatures rarely dropping below 20ºC in the coastal regions. This makes the island a popular year round destination with visitors, particularly those who enjoy pursuits including hiking and climbing.
