1. Re: best time to visit weatherwise

La Palma weather is pretty variable in the winter half of the year. We had three weeks this month (March 2009), with a really hot sunny week in the middle and a fair amount of rain in the 1st and 3rd weeks. We also had 3 weeks last December with quite a lot of rain. We had fortnights in March 08 and November 04, and it was warm/hot most of the time then. It was mostly 1round 16-18C when the weather wasn't good, so it was a lot more comfortable than back in the UK.

We've not been in the summer, but for the good weather you want, that probably is when you need to go.

Weather is said to be better on the wesern side of the island, but this didn't seem to be true over our 10 weeks of visiting.

Hi Annarosa,

The hottest time of year on La Palma is during the months of July and August. From May to the end of September it is very warm and usually free from rain.

Hope this helps,

This website might help anyone looking for details on the weather wunderground.com/history/…MonthlyHistory.html

You can change the month and the year so you can see any specific month in any year which hopefully will give you an idea of what to pack.

La Palma is a lovely island (one of the quieter Canaries) but well worth a visit. You can get a feel for it here http://www.islalapalma.com/en/index.html
