This Is What Gran Canaria Really Looks Like In December

December 2015 in Gran Canaria December 2015 in Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria in December is about the sunniest place in the whole of Europe. Here's a selection of photos of what to expect if you're heading here on holiday just before Christmas.

Most of these photos were taken during December 2015: An exceptionally sunny month all over Gran Canaria. While south Gran Canaria and its resorts are sunny most days in December, the north is cloudier. Gran Canaria does get a few days of December rain most years, but the rainy spells only last a couple of days and then the sun comes out again.

In mild years, such as 2015, the almond blossom doesn't even wait for the New Year

Every year, Las Canteras beach in Las Palmas hosts the world's biggest sand nativity scene; Definitely worth a visit
