Although there are a variety of microclimates in Gran Canaria, temperatures are generally comfortable throughout the year, especially in coastal areas. Precipitation is low; the damper months occur between November and March, while the period between May and August is almost invariably dry on the coast. This coincides with the warmest weather, with temperatures reaching the high-20s in August and September. The coolest month is January, when daily highs still get up to the low-20s.
There’s an extensive road system in Gran Canaria, which covers the whole of the coastline and extends inland across large portions of the mountainous regions so your Gran Canaria villas are easily reached. There are three motorways and two dual carriageways, so for tourists, probably the most convenient way to get around is by hire car. Still, cars aren’t always essential at apartments in Gran Canaria; there is a cheap and efficient bus system that connects the main tourist and shopping areas. On the east of the island is Gran Canaria Airport (LPA), which has connections to numerous cities on the Spanish mainland, and across Europe.
