Gran Canaria Weather in April

Weather / June 21, 2018

The last of winter is slipping away in April as temperatures climb on Gran Canaria and the sun starts to shine for longer. There’s little rain, but strong winds can make it cooler in the evenings.

Average minimum: 16.2 °C Average maximum: 22.9 °C


The gentle increase in temperature that defines Gran Canaria’s weather carries on through April as the average daily peak maximum temperature reaches 22.9 °C. That might not be as warm as some Mediterranean resorts, but it feels fresh and enjoyable on this island off the African coast thanks to its low humidity and rainfall. The ocean breeze takes the edge off the hottest days.


You’d be unlucky to see even a light rain shower on Gran Canaria in April as the average monthly figure is just 5mm. Most of that will be in the form of light showers during the evenings and at night. A stiff breeze can blow up with the rain, making it feel cool, but this doesn’t last for long and most days will be dry and bright.

Sunshine hours

As Gran Canaria awakes in spring, the sun begins to stay in the sky for longer and the average daily sunshine hours reach out to eight hours on most days. With cloudless skies the norm for this island, you should see plenty of sun on most days of the month.
