Weather Overview for Meloneras
Meloneras, Canary Island
Meloneras is a fairly new resort compared to the rest of the holiday resorts in Gran Canaria, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less picturesque. Catering to any one of the island’s 2.2 million tourists a year, Meloneras, situated on the south of Gran Canaria, is fast becoming one of the main tourist resorts in the whole island.
Holiday-makers going to Meloneras can expect an uninterrupted summer or, if they prefer a winter trip, can still look forward to sunny days, cool temperatures and plenty of quiet beaches for those couple’s getaways.
Holiday goers will be pleased to know that Meloneras’ summer is hot, but not uncomfortably so. The temperature averages at 22°C (72°F) which can droop a little lower down to 18°C (64’F), but the high range can be anything around 36°C (79°F).
It’s advised that you check the forecast before you leave the hotel as Meloneras can see high levels of UV rays. These are harmful if there’s too much exposure, so wear sunglasses (UV400 should do the trick) and if it’s high, stick to the shade. The humidity in the air can and most likely will make the air warmer than that, so if you do get a little hot and bothered the sea temperature is nice and warm and should be ideal for cooling off in.
The best thing about the resort’s summer is that there is no rain. Seriously! The average rain for the three months of summer is 0mm each.
There’s bound to be some wind, considering it’s a beach, but it hardly ever gets rough. The average you can expect is 22 mph. The only thing to watch out for is if you’re eating whilst on the beach. Nobody likes bits of sand in their food.
Despite being warm all year round, Meloneras still has to classify its latter end of the year as winter, but don’t let that word fool you. It’s anything but cold.
Sure, it’s not like the summer, but with an average temperature of 17°C (63°F) that peaks at 21°C (70°F) and troughs at around 14°C (57°F), it hardly seems mentioning that the weather is great all year round.
Of course the perk of a winter holiday at Meloneras is that you can stay out in the sun all day without risk from any UV rays as there are hardly any. Of course it’s always best to check to forecast before you set out for the day as you can never trust the weather too far. Better safe than sorry.
For those holiday makers who would like to see Gran Canaria’s sand dunes and grassy ravines, the rain will add that picturesque quality to their day. Throughout the winter, rain can tally up anything from 17-22mm. It’s not worth bringing an umbrella over.
Speaking of umbrellas the wind speed drops to around 10 mph, but has been known to extreme at 41 mph. It’s still no Mary Poppins act, but can make the resort a little chilly, in spite of the temperature. If you take a long-sleeved t-shirt you should be fine.
