Weather Overview for Amadores
Amadores is man-made tourist resort in the south of Gran Canaria, one of the ever-popular Canary Islands belonging to Spain. Despite Spain’s ownership of these year-around islands, they actually sit closer to the west coast of northern Africa, which is what mainly ensures fantastic weather no matter what month of the year.
Amadores is particularly popular with those who want peace and quiet, a laid-back holiday resort, and for families seeking a base away from the hustle and bustle of many other run of the mill holiday resorts. The warm, incredibly dry climate also does a lot to help tourism, with very little variation in temperature regardless of summer or winter status.
Because there is so little change in weather, Amadores really only has a summer or a winter, with no transitional spring or autumn period as with many other countries. The only downside is that due to the proximity of the Canary Islands to Africa, they can sometimes be in the way of what is called sirocco, a hot wind which carries sand from the Sahara. When this occurs, you may experience a spike in temperatures, which can push up into the 20s in winter, and the 30s in summer.
Summer in Amadores, indeed the whole of Gran Canaria, is classed as May to November, when temperatures are beautifully warm and the sun shines in abundance. The great thing about this time of year is that despite the warmth, the heat never gets to be too much, due to the north-easterly trade winds which help the island stay comfortable. These winds also mean fans of windsurfing and sailing flock to the island during the summer months.
Temperatures peak in August, hitting an average of around 26°C, with a low reaching the mid-teens at the beginning of May and end of November, despite this, temperatures don’t generally fall below 20°C during June to September.
If you’re looking for rain during this time then you will be disappointed, as May to September experiences very little rain indeed. You may expect a few short, sharp showers in September, but these are fast to pass and leave behind blue skies. Instead, you can expect plentiful sun, with a fantastic average of ten hours per day in July, and falling to six hours per day in November – still more than enough compared to other places at this time. No matter what the time of year, you can expect a warm sea, great for swimming, however September and October are the warmest months in terms of sea temperature, with an average of 23°C.
Whilst winter is classed as December through to April, the weather is still very warm indeed, making Amadores the perfect winter sun destination, with a truly laid-back atmosphere. You can expect cooler temperatures during January and February, but even then you will see an average of 18°C, which is certainly not cold!
You may expect to see some rain during the ‘winter’ months, especially December and January, however these are short and sharp again, and don’t cause too much of a problem. On the other hand, the sun certainly shines in winter in Amadores, with six hours of brilliant, bright sunshine, increasing as the summer draws closer and winter leaves the region. The sea is still warm enough for swimming even during this time, never falling below 19°C throughout the cooler, winter months.
As you can see, Amadores is the perfect destination, regardless of the month.
