March is the last month of winter in Gran Canaria and the island is already warming up fast. The temperature on the beaches can reach 30ºC and the average day temperature is 22ºC. At night it cools down to a minimum of 15.5ºC: That’s cool enough for a jumper or a second layer.
You can sunbathe in Gran Canaria almost every day during March. There are only 3 days rain on average and seven hours of sunshine per day. The sea temperature is 19ºC on average but is warmer in the shallow water by the beaches. We've spent whole weeks on the beach in March with just a couple of cloudy afternoons; They were almost a almost a relief.
March is an ideal month for exploring the island. Everything is green and the wild flowers start to bloom. If you plan to go walking bring a fleece and a waterproof windcheater as it can still be cold up at the top of the island.
March is Gran Canaria’s spring month when everything is green and beautiful and the flowers really come out. It’s an excellent time to visit the island, especially if you want to combiner beach days with some walking or driving about.
