March is slightly warmer than February and the sun rises earlier and sets later. There is something really magical about enjoying a sangria whilst watching the sun set over the dunes of Maspalomas! You will probably still need a lightweight jacket if you plan to go out in the evenings. The temperature drops to about 16ºC at night. Sea temperature is fairly constant all year and is about 20º or 21ºC. If you don’t like extreme heat, March might be a nice time to visit.
Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is when there holy relics and sacred icons are carried in processions through the streets. Most towns and villages are involved and this takes place the week before Easter. The Las Palmas Opera Festival is on from February to June. The Maspalomas Carnival is also on in March and features a Drag Queen competition. The weather can be overcast for a couple of days in March so you could pay a visit to Crocodile Park or Palmitos Park, if it isn’t beach weather. Palmitos Park has a botanical garden, aquarium and loads of wild animals! Cocodrilo (Crocodile) Park is the biggest crocodile park in Europe. Great if you have kids!
