Gran Canaria Weather: A Sunny Weekend Coming Up

Weather forecast: A sunny weekend all over Gran Canaria Weather forecast: A sunny weekend all over Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is back to its standard sunny March weather although it is still humid as the wind is still coming from the south and southwest.

This weekend will be hot and sunny all over the island and the rough sea will calm down as of today. The sand will slowly return to the southern beaches (such as Patalavaca and Maspalomas) once the waves fade away

On Saturday the winds swing back to the north so the temperature will drop by a few degrees and the air will get dryer. Once the Trade Winds return, the north will start to cloud over again but the south should be sunny for most of next week. 

February 2018 was the wettest in the Canary Islands since 2010 and average temperatures were up to 3.5ºC below average. Parts of Tejeda got 400 litres of rain per square metre and the island now has enough water in its reservoirs for three years.

    Gran Canaria Tip: What Are The Best Car Hire Companies?

    This is one of the most common questions we get in our Facebook Group (with over 30,000 members) and fortunately, it is an easy one to answer. The Gran Canaria Info admin team and the fans in our Facebook group agree...

    The best car hire companies in Gran Canaria are local ones with desk at the airport and honest pricing policies that don't have any hidden insurance or fuel deposit costs. They just rent you a good car at a good price with no fuss at all. 

    We recommend Mr Car Hire Gran Canaria (Nick); an idependent car rental professional who works with all the main local rental companies in Gran Canaria. This means that he can always find you a good deal.

    Mr Car Hire also offers fully comprehensive insurance on all car rental, three-day bookings, and delively of your car right to your door anywhere in Gran Canaria. 

    We advise all Gran Canaria visitors to avoid booking the cheapest possible car on generic car rental websites or via their flight company because you often end up paying large deposits, extra fuel and insurance costs and all kinds of other costs once you arrive to pick up your car at the airport.
