Alex says: August 2015 has ben an exceptional month with rain and even storms. We're as shocked as you are!
The water temperature in Gran Canaria in August reaches 23ºC, ideal for floating.
It’s so hot in Gran Canaria in August that you need to plan your days to avoid the midday sun. It’s best to keep in the shade between 10.30 and 15.00 as the intense rays burn pale skin quickly. We recommend that everybody drinks plenty of water and wears a hat and a thick layer of sunscreen.
On the beaches the sand holds its warmth for ages after sunset and you can sit and enjoy the cool breeze until well after dark.
August in Gran canaria is a sunbather’s paradise. After a week here you forget what it’s like to wake up and not see a huge blue sky.
