Weather Overview for La gomera
La Gomera is an island located in the Canary Islands in the very south of Spain. Unlike some of the other islands, La Gomera is relatively small and mostly unspoiled when it comes to mass tourism – you won’t find British pubs and high rise hotels here. Instead, think awe-inspiring cliffs, mountains and stunning scenery. Different to other bordering islands, La Gomera has never had any volcanic eruptions, resulting in a lush forest known as “Laurisilva”.
La Gomera enjoys a wonderful subtropical climate with mild winters and long, hot summers that can last for a period up to eleven months. The resort experiences beautiful weather all year around, with the most ideal time to vacation being late autumn and spring. Conditions are perfect year-round for walking holidays and many keen hikers take advantage of this.
La Gomera can, at times, experience a vast variance in climate categories. Precipitation averages from 200mm annually in the dried out areas of the south to 900mm per year in the highland regions. Both air temperatures and water temperatures will commonly be slightly warmer in the north than the south of La Gomera and obviously in winter the higher mountains in the centre are much cooler than the coast. However, in general the island is a perfect holiday destination wherever and whenever you choose to go.
Summer in La Gomera is typically the hottest time of the year and a popular time for sun worshippers and heat seekers, especially in the south of the island. Average temperatures sit around 21°C in June, rising to 23°C in July and a balmy 24°C in August and September. Highs can reach peaks of up to 27°C throughout the summer, which can feel very hot and humid at times, so visitors should take extra care in the heat. Summer is also the driest and the most sun-drenched time of the year in La Gomera, with 12 hours of sunshine and the lowest rainfall of the year in July, at just 90mm of precipitation.
Autumn is arguably one of the best times to plan a visit to the island of La Gomera. Temperatures are very pleasant, but have cooled slightly from the sizzling summer months, making it much more comfortable. October and November sees temperatures of 23°C and 21°C respectively, with mild lows that never drop below 18°C. The autumn months do see their fair share of rainfall; November is the wettest month of the year in La Gomera with 165mm of rain, while October falls just behind with 145mm. However, there is enough sunshine to make up for this, as autumn sees around 9-10 hours of sunshine every day.
Tourists often flock to the Canary Islands looking for some winter sun, and this is true for La Gomera too. The island has little variation in its hours of daylight; even in the shortest days of December, the area is still light and warm until much later. With high temperatures of 21°C in January and February and an average of 9 hours of sunshine every day, it makes a great escape from cold and dreary climates.
There are however vast temperature differences ranging from the north and the south, due to the altitude of the Garajonay Peak and the southern coastline. In the north, the weather can be extreme, showing much colder temperatures than in southern areas. If you’re looking for mild temperatures, it would be best to visit the south of the island in winter.
Beginning in the month of March, spring is an ideal time to vacation in La Gomera, when temperatures are much more bearable than the heat that is experienced during the peak summer season. Temperatures rarely drop below 16°C, with average temperatures of 19°C in April and 20°C in May. This makes it the most popular time of year for walkers and hikers that frequent the rugged island.
Spring also sees an increase in sunshine from winter, with an average of 10-11 hours each day throughout the season. Along with an average of 12-16 wet days a month, this brings a colourful explosion of subtropical flowers which blossom on the hillsides of La Gomera, making the island particularly beautiful at this time of the year.
Travelling about the island is simple and pleasurable as the roads are very well maintained. The island in general is a perfect holiday destination for tourists all-year round.
