Christmas in the Canaries

A Special Christmas in the Canaries
If you’re seeking festive celebrations with a difference — and the enticing promise of winter sun — then a Christmas holiday in the Canary Islands is the perfect break for you. More and more people are making the most of their time off work during the festive period by seeking out laidback beaches and the chance to create new Christmas traditions overseas. A TUI holiday to Gran Canaria, Lanzarote or Tenerife is your ticket to sun-baked islands, relaxing family holidays or exciting nightlife with friends. Why not start planning now for a relaxing Christmas this winter!

Glorious winter weather

The Canary Islands boast an idyllic climate with an average temperature of 20˚C during December and almost 200 hours of sunshine during the Advent season. The weather alone is just one reason why so many holidaymakers from Ireland choose to escape the cold and spend Christmas amidst a unique Spanish culture.

Canaries Christmas traditions

If you want to join in with the local communities and celebrate Christmas in the style of the Canary Islands, then you will find that many restaurants and village squares will be hosting Christmas meal celebrations a day early on 24th December. Many of the houses and churches will be decorated with religious statues and ornate nativity scenes. You’ll also hear singers performing traditional Spanish Christmas carols. Expect colourful parades, cultural performances and a lot of Christmas cheer to brighten up your holidays.

Christmas Day events

Resorts are well prepared to cater for those looking for a traditional Christmas meal on Christmas day itself with the beach as an impressive backdrop. You may even spot Santa Claus making an appearance by the pool! Going all-inclusive packages mean that you can indulge in an extravagant Christmas celebration that is already taken care of as part of your trip. All you have to do is sit back and let the festivities come to you!

With all the warm weather appeal, fun traditions and refreshingly different cuisine, could you see yourself on a beach in the Canaries this Christmas?
