|Gran Canaria at 11.00 AM on December 6th 2012|
Gran Canaria gets an average of eight hours of sunshine per day in December. You can sit on the beach or by the pool and feel hot without any worries.
Day temperatures range between 22 and 28 degrees Celsius, dropping to about 18 at night. Bring a fleece or a jumper if you plan to eat out in the evenings. Somehow 18 degrees C feels chilly in Gran Canaria, especially if your skin is warm from the sun.
Spend a day in Gran Canaria's mountains or Cumbres and temperatures can vary between 0 and 30 degrees Celsius. If you plan to explore Gran Canaria in December then bring warm clothes: It can even snow at the very top of the island in December.
It does rain in Gran Canaria during the winter and you can expect a couple of days of cloudy or wet weather during a two week visit in December. Rain normally rolls in for a couple of days and then blows over. See this Sunshine post for info about what to do in Gran Canaria when it rains.
Gran Canaria is an excellent place to come for winter sunshine. Along with the other Canary Islands, it is the only place in Europe where you are almost guaranteed
