The Storm-Free Canary Islands

Map of tropical storms in the Atlantic Ocean Map of tropical storms in the Atlantic Ocean

While destinations like Florida and Thailand get tropical storms, the Canary Islands have only experienced one in 100 years.

Tropical Storm Delta passed just north of the Canary Islands in November 2005 and caused some damage; it knocked the finger of Gran Canaria's Finger of God rock at Puerto de Las Nieves. However, as you can see from the map above, Delta was a freak event as it was the only one to even come close to Gran Canaria and the Canaries.

While we experience a couple of weeks of wet weather every winter and a storm in August about once per decade, the islands, and especially the resort areas in the south of the islands, exist in a bubble of calm, sunny weather that really is unique in the world.

It's no wonder that the Tourist Board sells the islands as having ´The Best Climate In The World´.
