Gran Canaria is the third largest and most developed of the seven Canary Islands. Its size is reflected in the vast landscape and highly-trafficked capital city of Las Palmas. Travelers flying to Gran Canaria for vacation have their pick of social activities in the city to private lounging on the island’s southern coastline. Thanks to its lush woodlands and ocean beaches, Gran Canaria has a varying climate that changes with the seasons and the location of your stay. The northern area of the island is humid, while the south is desert-like with vast stretches of beach. The villages of Gran Canaria provide this island with its endearing personality. Red roofs, banana plantations and tropical fruit orchids are just a few of the common landmarks travelers to Gran Canaria will enjoy.
While Gran Canaria has a wonderful climate throughout the year, the south of the island (where the major resorts are located) enjoys its own microclimate with generally better weather than other parts of the island, although the sea breeze can be quite bracing. The average temperature is comfortable all year round, rarely dropping below 63°F (17°C) and more often above 82°F (28°C) during the day. Rainfall in the summer months is almost non-existent, but showers are likely between October and April.
