Since the weather is warm and pleasant in Gran Canaria in January, the island gets busy at this time of year with tourists who come here to escape the hard winter back home.
We will say it from the start: Gran Canaria is an excellent destination for the winter holidays if you love warm weather and sunny skies!
November is the month when temperatures start to drop and although it's as hot as it was during the summer season, the weather in Gran Canaria is still much great compared to what people living in continental Europe are getting.
The month of October can be a tricky one in terms of weather in Gran Canaria and in the Canary Islands in general. It's when the transition from summer temperatures to autumn starts and it may rain a bit and you may also get some cloudy days, but in general, the weather will still be warm enough to suntan and also swim in the ocean.
