    Winter in the Canaries with Barceló Hotel Group

    The sunshine in the UK hasn’t disappointed, but it’s those rainy days that get you thinking about the inevitable cold. As summer slowly comes to an end, that can only mean one thing… Winter is on the horizon. But there’s no need to be that person who’s late to the party! Escape the chill with Barceló and head to the Canaries for some much-needed vitamin D and winter sun.

    The Canaries are a popular destination during the winter months and for good reason. Hitting highs of around 23°C, we understand why you might be edging towards a wintertime Canary holiday. The great thing is that there’s a hotel from Barceló Hotel Group just for you, no matter what Canary Island you end up choosing to visit.

    Tenerife

    Starting off with the biggest Canary Island of them all, Tenerife continues to be a popular choice for a winter sun getaway. Expect sunshine all year round along with a gentle breeze for optimum, comfortable temperatures. The island is home to stunning landscapes and gorgeous golden and black sand beaches. Also, there’s an exciting nightlife here, as well as golf courses and national parks.
