While October may be the final month of summer on Gran Canaria, it remains ideally warm for most of the time thanks to an average daily maximum temperature of 26.4 °C, which is only half a degree cooler than September. With lower wind speeds than the previous month, it helps keep the island feeling warm and summery for those seeking a late break.



By the standards of Gran Canaria, October sees more rainfall than any other month in the island’s summer season with an average of 19mm. However, that is still low compared with many Mediterranean resorts. Most of the rain falls in the northwest of the island and across the mountains, leaving the southeast usually dry and cloudless.

Sunshine hours

While the days enjoy plenty of warmth, the sun shines for seven hours a day, on average. There should be few clouds on most days and the prevailing wind usually shifts them away quickly.
