HOLIDAY WEATHER Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria enjoys year round warmth and sunshine with very little seasonal variation. Summers are hot and dry while winters are just slightly cooler with a few showers.

The island’s southerly location, on the same latitude as the Sahara, means it is much hotter than mainland Spain in the winter. However, it generally gets much cooler than might be expected at this latitude due to the surrounding sea, the cool Canary Current and northeast trade winds.

Throughout the year Gran Canaria has a spring-like climate having an average temperature of 26-28°C in summer and 22-24°C in winter.

Gran Canaria is a mountainous island of volcanic origin. The high central mountains create great regional variation in climate. The northeast regions are generally cooler and wetter than the southwest as the mountains trap the trade winds, forcing wind to fall before it passes over to the other side.

However, the temperature difference is usually only a couple of degrees at the most. The higher altitudes of the mountains receive an alpine climate with cooler temperatures and higher rainfall year round. This concentration of diverse microclimates has seen Gran Canaria dubbed a ‘small continent’.

Summer

Temperatures in summer average from 26 ºC to 28 ºC and can sometimes exceed 30 °C. Rainfall in the summer months is very rare with July, August and September normally rainless.

Winter

During winter the temperatures fall and the yearly average of 21 days of rainfall mostly falls over the winter period. The average temperature drops to its lowest at 14°C in January and February.

On the highest peaks of Gran Canaria you can see snowfalls sometimes in the winter.

About Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is a beautiful island in the Canary Islands with spectacular coastlines and beaches of lovely sands on which you can enjoy the sunshine. Amongst the beaches Maspalomas is the most attractive for sunbathing. Apart from being an ideal destination for beach lovers, Gran Canaria also has a few mountains with ancient volcanic activity.

Attractions

Gran Canaria is a paradise for hill walking with its inhabited cave villages, lake side walks, spectacular mountain scenery and wonderful flora & fauna especially in the spring. There are a great variety of walks and hikes on outstanding trails, many of these are off-the-beaten-track and the climate is excellent for trekking.

Described as the ‘Hawaii of the Atlantic’, the surf on Gran Canaria can be incredible. On the right day the surfers will put on a free and spectacular display, often in the north of the island but also in the south on the right conditions - Maspalomas, Playa del Inglés and Arguineguin. It is also a great place to learn to surf with fantastic beaches and a couple of really good surf schools.

The Casa-Museo de Colón is fantastic example of Canarian architecture which you can visit and discover about the Canary Islands’ historical role as a staging post for transatlantic shipping.

Food

El Salsete can be found in the San Fernando district and although it may not look like much from the outside, the creative tastes and presentations wouldn’t be out of place in any top restaurant.

Enjoy tapas in the restaurant of the well-run La Hacienda del Molino. You can also buy gourmet essentials here such as papaya and mango jams.

Wapa Tapa is a tapas restaurant with a mix of Spanish and international food with a fantastic selection of Spanish wines.

Que tal has an elegant menu and serves a set five course menu and offers a selected wine menu to complement each course.

Language

The language spoken in Gran Canaria is Spanish but the dialect of the Canarian people is more similar to Caribbean and South American countries, than mainland Spain.

To impress on your holiday, try and learn some basic phrases.

Currency

In Gran Canaria, the Euro is the currency used. For the best exchange rates, try and organise your money before you go on holiday.

Accommodation

For superior accommodation, the Gloria Palace Amadores Thalasso & Hotel offers comfort and relaxation with amazing views of the sea. You can try out activities from archery to water polo or just lounge around the two infinity pools.

The luxurious Cordial Mogan Playa is surrounded by courtyards, is home to two large swimming pools and is only a 10 minute walk from the beach.

Located in the tourist town of Mogan just 150 metres from Playa de Amadores, Terraza de Amadores is close to a wide range of leisure activities and is ideal to enjoy relaxing days of sun.

El Capricho Apartamentos offers direct access to Maspalomas Beach. Each apartment has its own terrace or balcony for you to enjoy the views of either the sea or garden.

When to visit Gran Canaria?

Gran Canaria is a lovely holiday destination that can be visited any time of the year and its warm winter draws many visitors. December to February becomes the high season to visit Gran Canaria. If you visit between the months May and October, you can refresh yourself with the cool sea breezes.

What to pack for Gran Canaria?

The climate in Gran Canaria is very warm, so cool, casual clothing is all you need through the year. Wear comfortable sandals and flip flops for walking around in.

For the summer months, remember to protect yourself with sun cream and sunglasses while exposed to the sun. Also, personal protection against mosquitoes is recommended.
