Averages for Playa del Ingles in April
Gran Canaria, one of Spain’s Canary Islands, enjoys a subtropical climate that brings year round warm and sunny weather. Playa del Inglés is located on the island’s south coast where the climate is much drier and even a few degrees warmer than the northern territory where the island’s capital, Las Palmas, is situated.
April in Playa del Inglés sees comfortable temperatures ranging from 17.2 degrees celsius to 21.5 degrees. No need to pack a jacket at this time of year, not even for the evenings.
There’s a significant drop in rainfall at this time of year in Playa del Inglés. In fact, it’s usually half that of the previous month, with only 7mm expected on average. This usually falls over just one day, so the chance of seeing any precipitation during an April trip is slim.
Take some time to explore the area, and what better way to do so than with a cycling tour? Happy Biking offer mountain bike excursions to nearby Eagle Pass, Chira and Los Sitios. All bike and safety equipment is provided, along with a picnic for full day trips. The company can also organise bike racing and hiking, as well as bicycle rental for those wanting to ride at their own pace. The tour office is located right in the heart of Playa del Inglés so it’s easily accessible.
For a fun evening out, head to Ricky’s Cabaret Bar. Featuring some of the best comedy drag acts in Playa del Inglés, a night here is sure to be one to remember. The bar is located in the Yumbo Centre, on the ground floor right next door to the KFC, so it’s particularly handy for a late night snack after a bit too much to drink!
The 3* Parque Cristobel Gran Canaria offers luxury accommodations at the low price of just £43 per night. Located within walking distance to the beach, this complex features not one but two outdoor pools (heated during the cooler winter months) and tropical gardens. All rooms feature a private terrace with furniture, and are especially suited to those with babies and small children.
