Things to do on New Year's Eve in Gran Canaria - fiestas and events

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 averages 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.
