Weather in Lanzarote

Lanzarote Weather and Climate Information

Like all Canary Islands, Lanzarote is an island with "the best climate in the world", known as an eternal spring with a warm climate all year round, making it a perfect place to visit in any season.

Temperatures rarely drop below 16 ° C in winter or exceed 25 ° C in summer. The climate in Lanzarote is usually dry, with few days of rain.

The weather on the island may vary by location. The north of Lanzarote tends to be more windy, more cloudy and with more precipitations, due to the influence of the "alisio" winds. The island is located very close to North Africa, so besides being one of the sunniest places, it also has an incredible wind that refreshes even in the hottest days. In the south it is drier and hotter.

In summer, one of the aspects to consider is the calima, a cloud of sand that arrives from Africa and that raises the temperatures, the dryness and, of course, the dust in suspension. However, it doesn't last for more than a couple of days.

On the other hand, the water of the Atlantic Ocean is cold, so you certainly will not hesitate to take a dip on some of our incredible beaches.

Do I have to bring a coat to Lanzarote? If you are very sensitive to the cold it is recommended to bring a jacket, sweatshirt or cardigan. Especially if you come in winter months and go out at night, it tends to be cooler.
