    Gran Canaria weather October

    What’s the weather like in Gran Canaria in October?

    The location of Gran Canaria around 150km off the west coast of North Africa means that it enjoys warm weather and not much rain in October. The Canaries are known as the ‘Islands of Eternal Spring’, and you'll get lovely holiday weather at this time.


    The high mountains in the middle of Gran Canaria mean there’s different weather around the island. They protect the south from north easterly winds, so it’s warmer and drier than the north, while things are quite a lot cooler and wetter up in the mountains. Cool breezes and the Canary Current will keep you comfortable all around the coast, even though Gran Canaria’s close to the Sahara Desert. Things can get very hot when winds blow over from Africa though, which can also bring the occasional dust storm.


    The average high temperature during October is 26ºC, falling to a comfortable 18ºC at night. You should be fine in a t-shirt in the evenings, although you might want to bring a warmer top just in case. At 23ºC, the sea’s at its highest annual temperature, while humidity’s low and ranges from nearly 60% to just under 90%. Even though it’s autumn, there’s hardly any rain, with an average of just 16mm over two rainy days.


    During October you can expect an average of 11 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. The UV index will be high so pack plenty of sun cream and be careful in the midday heat. Sunset’s around 7.45pm at the start of the month, an ideal time for you to enjoy a table with a view at dinner.
