Calima (haze) are very small particles of suspended dust, and in the Canary Islands, it is sometimes caused once or twice a year (during spring and/or summer time), due to alms and clays that come with winds coming from Africa towards the south and southeast.
But don’t worry, it only lasts a couple of days, or disappears sooner if it rains. But if you have asthma, then you should be alert to your symptoms.
Don’t forget to hydrate frequently, wear a hat and sunglasses, and put on sunscreen from time to time. And try to avoid full sun exposure between noon and 6pm, especially if you’re traveling with children. It would also be helpful to bring an umbrella in the car.
And sometimes, when the calima disappears, the sky of the Canary Islands gets clear, and you can see the silhouettes of the rest of the islands.
