Gran Canaria is one of the top places in Spain to enjoy a huge variety of water sports. The all-year round sunshine and warm sea currents, making it so inviting to get wet and wild in the clear blue sea.
The temperature of the Atlantic Ocean off Gran Canaria seldom drops below 18c even in Winter. During the Summer months the sea is a invitingly warm 23c!
Surrounded by water, Gran Canaria has specific areas for different types of water activities. Over on the East coast the waves are strong and come crashing a shore. Also the winds are constant making this area ideal for windsurfers and kite-surfers. To the North of the island the waves are impressive and this area is a favourite for wave surfers, looking for that perfect wave! On the Southern coastline you fine the calm waters and sheltered bays. Scuba diving is good here as the water is less disturbed, making for excellent viability.
