First of all, if you’re going to Gran Canaria at Christmas, don’t worry about the weather. I’ve been here for nearly 11 years and I’ve never had a rainy or cold Christmas 😎 Obviously it’s not going to be 40ºC like in August but you won’t need a heavy coat. Locals like me usually opt for a light jacket in the daytime but tourists are often bare-armed and warm enough.
If it’s a white Christmas you’re after, you can stay home, but if you fancy a warm Christmas with perhaps a few beers in a beach bar and some sun, check out our What’s On at Christmas in Gran Canaria post.
The weather in Gran Canaria at Christmas is usually good. Expect 20ºC and sun. The temperature might be a bit less and the sun might not be out but it’s usually quite pleasant. The weather at Xmas in Las Palmas might be a few degrees cooler than in the south but it’s better than in the UK anyway!
If you’re worried about warm weather at Xmas Canaries weather doesn’t normally let you down. The bars and restaurants will be open and there will be a great atmosphere. A Gran Canaria Xmas is a great way to recharge your batteries for 2010 and enjoy a wonderful break in the sun.
