SURFING IN GRAN CANARIA
The Isle of “Gran Canaria” is divided in two main
climatic zones.The North centre which is very humid, where you
can find precious green valleys with their enormous craters and
boilers, and the dry part further south with its desert landscapes.
In the South you can find incredible golden fine sandy beaches for a swim
or some sun. The average temperature is between 17 degrees in
the winter to 24º in the summer. Water temperature varies
between 19º and 23º… So, water sports are an all
year around event…with a very pleasant surrounding.
You'll watch “Dunkenber” or the “Ruano”
sisters, windsurf world champions. Also locals... the famous
“Taylor” sisters who are at the top of European ranking
of surfing and body board.
With the spectacular climate in “Gran Canaria” you can choose from a variety of outdoor, water or adventure sports (surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing,
diving, trekking, climbing, parasailing, ultra light, cycling,
tennis, golf, fishing, etc.) which can complete your perfect
If sun, beach, hot weather, fun and leisure (water parks, marine
excursions, water activities, bars and discos…) are what
you want, then you should hit the south of the island. Away from the big tourist areas, you can still find
quiet villages and beaches. We recommend it especially if you’re
looking for a relaxed and warm winter holiday.
