Gran Canaria is a great party destination in Europe, especially during the winter months when the rest of continental Europe is fighting snow, low temperatures and gloomy days with no sunshine.
So...how is Gran Canaria in winter?
Actually, Gran Canaria is one of the hottest Canary Islands during the winter time, with temperatures often surpassing 25 Celsius during the day time.
Weather history for Gran Canaria around New Year's Eve:
Temperatures from Maspalomas:
December 31st 2017 - max 24° / min 17°
January 1st 2018 - max 23° / min 18°
As you can see from the numbers above, temperatures during the day time are still ideal for lounging on the beach and getting a tan, while in the evenings you will definitely need a light coat or jacket, as it can feel chilly.

There will be plenty of celebrations on the entire island, so you can attend the street party in the capital or one of the celebrations in clubs or restaurants in the south. Depending on where you'll want to spend the last night of the year, you may need to book in advance, especially for restaurants that offer a set menu with a limited number of seats.
