South and Central Gran Canaria are on heat alert today with big waves expected until Saturday.

After a rare cloudy start to the day yesterday the news is a bit of a surprise. However, heat alerts are automatically triggered when the forecast temperature goes over 34ºC.

The high temperatures in south Gran Canaria today are expected in inland areas and the highlands. Walking in the hills today is not recommended as the dry heat can dehydrate you in minutes.

As of 17.00 on the 23rd July, the southern half of Gran Canaria is also on alert from strong waves up to force seven. This alert has been extended until the end of Saturday. Please remember that along rocky coasts, it's always easier to get into the water than it is to get out again. 

Surfers will be happy as the windguru forecast for Friday looks pretty good on the east coast with wind up to 28 knots and waves to 1.5 metres.

    If Anfi beach is busy or you just want to swim in cool, deep water, then walk out onto the heart-shaped island and you’ll find a set of steps and a safe swimming area just next to the ferry dock.
