Hello Summer: Gran Canaria Weather in May

Gran Canaria weather in May Gran Canaria weather in May

May is basically summer in Gran Canaria and it’s one of our favourite months. You don’t get the really hot days of summer and the odd puffy white cloud comes along often enough to cool everyone down on the beaches. 

It is sunny for 8.5 hours per day on average and there isn’t enough rain for it to register on the statistics. The sea temperature starts to rise and gets to a minimum of 20ºC: That’s about perfect on a hot day.

The average high temperature in May  is 23ºC but you can expect days with temperatures above 30ºC almost every week. You might still need a light jumper in the evenings as temperatures drop to a minimum of 17ºC at night. 

May is the last month of the official walking season in Gran Canaria as the hills are still green and cool and the island is still green. It’s an excellent month to rent a car or go on an organized trip up into the mountains. It won’t be too hot or too cold and everything looks lush and fertile. 

Come to Gran Canaria in May and you get bright sunshine, beautiful scenery and cool evenings. Just what the relaxation doctor ordered!
