Gran Canaria has one of the nicest climates in the world,
and most days of the year are guaranteed to be warm and
sunny. The hottest months are June to September, while the
coolest are December to February.
Tourists can be found on Amadores beach any day of the
year and a 'cool' day still means average temperatures of
around 20 degrees C. The temperature stays between 25 and 35
degrees C for most of the year, which most people find
pleasant. Some days are overcast but there is plenty to do
in Amadores, as well as in the surrounding areas, so an
overcast day does not need to be a wasted day.
The ocean gently laps at Amadores beach, although the bay
is well-protected from the Atlantic, so do not expect big
waves. The sea is an average of 20 degrees C, which makes it
warm enough for swimming, yet bracing enough for cooling
off. The hot weather is pretty much guaranteed throughout
the summer and sometimes it even gets above 35 degrees C, so
you will want to swim frequently or sit under a parasol for
part of the day.
There are plenty of places to
buy cold drinks and ice cream
too. In the winter some days are breezy and a bit cool, but
that is the risk you take going to the Canaries during the
winter. It is sure to be warmer than back home, but the sun
is not guaranteed during the winter months, although you
will not have a whole week of bad weather, and when it rains
it rains hard but usually only for a couple of hours. Rain
is almost unheard of during the summer season.
