Temperatures in Lanzarote

The weather in Lanzarote (Canary Islands) is warm and sunny all year round.

January and February are the best months to relax. March blooms with daisies and in April you might want to wear warmer clothes for an evening outdoor cocktail. June, July and August are the hottest and busiest months of the year. When we went in September the weather was very mild, not many tourists and the sea just perfect for a dip. From October till December there can be occasional showers even though the sea temperature never goes below 20ºC.

Lanzarote is named after the italian navigator Lanzerotto Malocello who discovered the island in 1312. It’s the third most populous island after Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Arrecife is the capital of the island. Its airport serves frequent direct flights from destinations all over Europe.

This island of the Canaries offers unique experiences and unforgettable memories.

The capital of Lanzarote is Arrecife and the spoken language is Spanish.
