While the climate on the Canary Islands differ a bit depending on where / on which island you are, overall the temperatures are very pleasant year round. So there are no problems for the rooftop bars to stay open year round. Thanks to the island setting, many of the terraces offer fantastic views over the ocean, and also come with a relaxing, beachside vibe. Most rooftop bars are found in the largest city, Las Palmas on Gran Canaria. But there are modern rooftops serving great cocktails all around the different islands.
The Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago, set in the Atlantic Ocean, west of Morocco. There are seven main islands, called Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. The four first ones are the most famous and most visited. People visit for the beaches and the climate, but also for natural attractions. Two major ones are the dunes of Maspalomas in Gran Canaria and Teide National Park and Mount Teide in Tenerife, one of the tallest volcanos in the world.
