Which Island has the hottest/sunniest weather in December?

Apologies if this has been done to death but I'm looking for a week away at the beginning of December to unwind before Christmas. All that I want to do is lie down by the pool and read my book and unwind so I'm basically looking for the place with the best weather!

We did go to Gran Canaria about 9 years ago in December and it wasn't warm at all. In fact I remember being very disappointed. Also any suggestions for a good hotel (4 to 5 * probably half board) would be most welcome. I'm not into faux irish bars and concrete if that helps! ;o)

Tenerife, Spain

Hi Craig

If you have a look at http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=tenerife+sur this will give you the weather for the south of Tenerife. It is the airport so you will find the resorts are several degrees warmer. E.g. The airport is currently showing 26 degrees, but PdlA is 30 degrees.

From this website you can check the 'History' of what the conditions have been for any particular month and over several years All you have to do is then change the location and the year so you will be able to compare ALL of the islands and choose what suits you best. Remember to change the tab at the top to show monthly readings, otherwise you will just get specific days.

If you should decide you want to visit Tenerife, then come to our forum and we will be able to help you with your other queries.

Hi Craig,

You could also try http://www.weatheronline.co.uk and put in the relevant place name.

I have also put together all the details for Fuerteventura which you can find here: www.leisurezone.es/fuerteventura-weather.html

Good luck with your choice of island... enjoy!
