IS GRAN CANARIA WINDY?

Is Gran Canaria windy?

Gran Canaria is not so windy. I consider Gran Canaria the best island to go to for a winter holiday in the Canary Islands.

Which is the least windy area in Gran Canaria?

The least windy area of ​​Gran Canaria is located in the South-West. Municipality of MogĂ n.
The least windy area of ​​Gran Canaria includes several villages, the most popular are:
  • Puerto Rico (Playa de Amadores)
  • Anfi del Mar 
  • Puerto de Mogan
The beaches are protected from strong winds; ocean without waves. Usually the temperatures in winter are about 25 degrees.

Ocean is not as mild as the Mediterranean Sea but is pleasant to swim. Especially if you live in the England, Norway, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Russia...

The windiest area of ​​Gran Canaria is located in the North-east part (near airport) so if you want to be sure to stay in the hottest part of Gran Canaria, book an accommodation in the area you see on the map below:

Where to Stay in Gran Canaria North or South?

Where to Stay in Gran Canaria North or South?

The North of Gran Canaria is really different from the Southern area which is dedicated to the tourism.

Best area to Stay in Gran Canaria South


The best area where to stay in Gran Canaria if you look for beautiful beaches sheltered from the wind, is located in the southwest part of the island, in Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria: one of the most popular seaside resorts on the island.

Where to Stay in Gran Canaria North

LAS PALMAS

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the capital of the island.  I suggest staying in this cosmopolitan city in the summer months which enjoy a stable climate while in winter it is more cloudy and rainy than in the southern resorts.

It is also very touristy but if you are looking for the classic seaside resort in which to spend the winter months, it is better to stay in the sunniest area: in Puerto Rico. Las Canteras, the beach of Palmas, is more windy. Swimming is possible but the water is colder and the ocean is more wavy compared to the sheltered beaches of the South.

However, in February I recommend staying a few days in Las Palmas because there is the famous Spanish carnival and the city comes alive with parties, allegorical floats, music on the streets and it is pleasant to be part of it. 

Las Palmas is a cosmopolitan, young city (there is a university and many Europeans come for Erasmus) full of shops, restaurants and clubs. The main street of Las Palmas is "Calle Triana" very long, full of people, a lively place.

In travel often around the Canary Islands. This January I went to Fuerteventura, last February I went in Lanzarote, a few years ago I went in Tenerife (Costa Adeje) but if I want to spend a warm winter I'll go in my apartment in Gran Canaria, in Puerto Rico. I can say with certainty that the countries that are located in the municipality of Mogan are the hottest in winter.

There are restaurants and bars: you can find your international dishes like Italian, Irish, Indian food. 

There is the beautiful Amadores beach, which is probably the main reason that anyone would come to Puerto Rico, because it’s amazing. It’s ideal for families, or anyone who is not love strong wind. Puerto Rico have these great harbor walls and sea defenses that mean that the waves are tiny and the water is shallow.

There are two harbors so you’ll see plenty of yachts and boats sailing off into the distance.

Puerto Rico has everything on its doorstep: lots of activities and facilities. And, it’s really cheap if you book an accommodation in advance.

For winter stays: If you do not book in advance, not only the price increase but will be very difficult find an accommodation in this area.
