Averages for Playa del Ingles in October
Playa del Inglés has everything travellers looking for a relaxing, fun and outgoing holiday could want. There’s plenty of budget (yet luxurious) accommodations, the cheap alcohol flows freely, there’s sun, sea, sand, surf and numerous cozy Spanish restaurants serving up tapas and sangria.
High temperatures are once again present in Playa del Inglés in October, although it is slightly cooler than the previous few months, peaking at 23.6 degrees on average, and dropping to 21.3 degrees celsius overnight. Sea temperatures remain a warm 23 degrees during October, so it’s a great time of year for water sports.
October usually sees a fair few clouds in the sky, although fortunately rainfall remains low. Just 13mm falling over two days means the average holidaymaker is unlikely to see much, if any, precipitation. October has one of the highest humidity levels in Playa del Inglés so strenuous outdoor activities may be a little uncomfortable.
With the warm sea temperatures, spend a day at the Dunkerbeck Windsurfing Centre. Gran Canaria has some of the strongest seawinds of all the Canary Islands, so it’s an ideal spot for this particular sport. 10 hours of lessons start from £150, and equipment rental from £45 a day. Surfing and bodyboarding is also offered here, with multi-day courses for beginners.
For drinking and dancing, spend an evening at the Garage Pub. The venue is open from 8.30pm - 4.30am, with a happy ‘hour’ lasting from 8.30pm - 3.00am where a selection of drinks are on a ‘buy one get one free’ offer. There’s a big selection of wines, beers and cocktails so there’s plenty to suit all tastes.
The Sahara Beach Club offers rooms for £36 per night. The complex features a freshwater pool (heated in the chillier months) and terraced bungalows suitable for up to 4 guests. Each bungalow has a private terrace with furniture for enjoying the sun.
