High season runs from December to February, with accommodation filling up well in advance; temperatures are slightly cooler with prevailing winds, but still very pleasant.
Late spring (April and May) is perfect temperature-wise, although Easter can mean crowded beaches.
Spanish holidaymakers favour the islands in July and August, along with families travelling with school-age children. Temperatures often surpass 30°C, though it rarely gets stiflingly hot. The Windsurfing World Cup takes place in July.
Autumn is an excellent time for festivals, including Corralejo's Kite Festival and the Fiesta de la Virgen del Rosario in the capital. Average daytime temperatures hover around the agreeable 20°C mark, while nights gradually become cooler.
