Weather Lowdown

August is the hottest month of the year here, with temperatures on a daily basis reaching an average of 24°C. That leaves a very impressive climate for all holidaymakers who come to Puerto de Santiago, with average highs of 29°C and lows that only go down as far as 22°C. You definitely need to leave the jumpers and winter coats at home when you fly out here!

The average sea temperature also rises to around 23°C, as a result of the fact that 12 hours of sunshine warm it up every single day. The Canary Islands are a great place to visit at this time of year, as you can tell by looking at other nearby resorts as well: Lanzarote is even warmer, though only by a degree here and there – not enough to make a huge difference to your holiday experience.

Be sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast, though more to see what the highest temperature will be than to look out for bad weather. There is normally only one day of rain during this whole month, and you will not get too wet when it happens either – only 4mm of rain will fall.

The most hours of sunshine and the highest temperatures both on land and sea will be visiting the resort this month. This is peak summer season, and also peak time for visitors – so make sure that you head out to the beach early if you want to stake out a good spot. If you want to come at a time when things are a bit quieter, September might be a good bet: the temperatures are comparable with hardly any difference, but many families will remain at home as children go back to school early in the month. This might just make a huge difference to your holiday, unless you have children yourself!

Where to Stay

Ona Las Rosas offers mini apartments where you will find all of the home comforts you require, as well as the opportunity to privately sunbathe in the August heat. A full kitchen is available in your apartment, and there are also communal facilities such as a heated pool, bar, restaurant, and library.

A central swimming pool and clubhouse stand out at Harbour Club, where the relaxed tropical vibe will have you sitting in a sun lounger without a care in the world. They also offer live entertainment and even have their own medical facility to keep you safe.

You will also be able to rent apartments at the Residencial Playa de La Arena, which is set up as a full living space with access to two communal pools and an easy walk down to the beach. Staying here really is like finding yourself a home away from home!

Things to Do

Though the beach may be busy thanks to the warm August weather, there is never a bad time to go and sit on the sands. Whether you work on your tan or head right into the water, spending a few hours on the beach every day will really make you feel as though you have got the most out of your holiday.

You will be able to see it from the shore, so taking a trip out to La Gomera is definitely going to be high on your list. This beautiful island feels almost like a lost world, and the ferry ride is only around an hour long. You can spend a whole day there and return to your hotel in the evening.

You can also learn how to dive with SeaScuba. They offer a great service which will get you fully qualified, or you can simply head out for a beginner experience that takes you through the seas to explore what the local area is hiding under the waves.

Hit the Beach

Beach Chica is very nearby, or Playa Chica as it is known to the locals. This is just a small beach and often has calmer water than other parts of this coastline, though there are safety flags which will warn you if the sea is too rough.

This beach has a great bar close by which serves drinks to those on the sand, and also has wooden deck chairs and sun loungers that are available at no charge. The average sea temperature this month is 23°C, so you will most likely find that you have some competition to get in the water from other tourists! However, with this being a little known beach, you are likely to get enough space to sit by yourself and relax.

Restaurants and Nightlife

The Ameck restaurant may not look like much from the outside, but make sure to order and try the food before you judge it. You will find a delightful experience with a menu curated by a husband and wife duo from Austria. This means their cuisine is included as well as local favourites and international classics.

For a wine and tapas bar, look no further than La Taberna de Montse. There is a café-like atmosphere here which is belied by food served up in the most beautiful ways. The serving team here clearly take pride in their art.

Those craving a taste of home can find a British pub offering free internet access and plenty of sports at the Beeches Brook Sports Bar. They have a lot of traditional British dishes as well as beers imported to suit their customers' tastes.
