With average temperatures fluctuating between 20 and 25 °C during the winter, and between 25 and 30 °C in the summer, Gran Canaria is also called “the island of eternal spring”. Thus, light cotton clothing is the best choice. During spring and autumn a hoodie and jacket are recommended for the cooler evenings.
