23 May 2017

Gran Canaria is often described as the Miniature Continent. Our perfect location and the climate of Gran Canaria together with the mild temperatures we enjoy throughout the year, are some of the great reasons why tourists choose this island as their holiday’ destination.

The temperatures are Spring like throughout the year, experiencing little difference between winter and summer weather. It is one of the sunniest places on the planet. Do you really need any more reasons to visit us?

Eternal spring guarantees the climate of Gran Canaria

Our climate is subtropical, which means that, among other benefits, there are no sudden temperature’ changes. You’ll find eternal spring in Gran Canaria.

The climate is arid, that is to say that it doesn’t rain much, and the average temperature is around 22ºC. This is one of the reasons why people from the Canary Islands find it so difficult to live somewhere else; exactly the same reason why foreigners find it so hard to leave when their holidays are over. In fact, after spending some days at Dunas Hotels & Resorts many of them decide that Gran Canaria will be their second wintertime home. 

The trade winds and the mountain ranges of Gran Canaria make it a place of no rain in summertime and very scarce the rest of the year. Its Miniature Continent’ nickname it’s due to the fact that temperatures may vary greatly from one side of the island to the other in just one single day; it may be snowing on the summit of the island while on the coast the sunshine fills the air.
