WHEN TO GO
Temperatures on this island tend to stick somewhere between 20˚C in winter and 25˚C in summer. In August, it can heat right up to the 30˚C mark, although thanks to trade winds there’s always a cooling breeze. As for rain, most of it falls in the north of the island from October to March. That said, it’s only about five millimetres’ worth.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Spanish nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment. For the latest health and safety info, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/spain/health
