How about a sunny Christmas on a beach in Lanzarote?

Christmas in Lanzarote is a wonderful experience, with the island all decorated for the holidays and New Year's. So if you want to escape the cold and have a merry and sunny Christmas, Lanzarote might just be the perfect holiday destination for you.

2021 has been a tough year for tourism in Lanzarote and due to the pandemic, there are still restrictions in place, but visitors are starting to come back to the island. 

Christmas in Lanzarote: events and things to do during the holiday season

You are almost guaranteed to have a sunny and warm Christmas if you decide to spend the holidays here. In 2016 there were 21 Celsius in Puerto del Carmen and in 2015 the temperature on Christmas Day was 22 Celsius, so no matter what you do, a visit to the beach is a must on that day. Weather in Lanzarote in December is still warm and pleasant during the daytime, but you will most likely need a coat in the evenings.

At this time of year, there are plenty of events going on all over the island, so we made a list of suggestions of things to do in Lanzarote this Christmas.

Christmas in Puerto del Carmen & Tias 

The most expected event of the Christmas celebrations in Puerto del Carmen is the Santa Parade, which used to take place every year and was considered as some sort of a tradition.

Puerto del Carmen Santa Parade

Although the parade had become a Christmas tradition in Puerto del Carmen, this event wasn't organized back in 2019, and with all the restrictions, who knows if it will take place in 2021.

When we learn something certain about it, we will update this article to include the information.

Christmas in Playa Blanca & Yaiza

Usually, in December there are several activities and events organized, like a Christmas market, concerts and many activities for children throughout the month.

See more info about Christmas in Playa Blanca.

"Regardless of the importance of these events for families, such as Christmas, New Year's Eve and Three Kings, we maintain our message of public awareness for responsible compliance with the recommendations issued by the health authorities," emphasizes the mayor of the municipality of Yaiza, who also guarantees that Christmas lighting and decorations will be put in place for this year's holiday season.

When we learn more about what the authorities are planning for Playa Blanca for Christmas this year, we will update this article to include the information.

Christmas in Costa Teguise & Teguise

Teguise Council usually organizes plenty of events during the month of December, as well as many children's workshops.

We will soon update the entire schedule for December and January in Teguise.

Christmas in Haria

The Ayuntamiento de Haria has not yet published the list of Christmas events on their website.

Christmas in San Bartolomé

San Bartolome usually announces the date when they switch on their Christmas lights. No date has been announced yet.

What to do for Christmas Dinner in Lanzarote?

In the Spanish culture, Christmas Day is usually spent at home with the family, so most Spaniards don't go out to dine on this day.

Most of the restaurants will have a special Christmas menu, usually with British or Irish traditional dishes.

Christmas is considered the high season in Lanzarote, so the best restaurants will be fully booked months in advance. This is also the case for New Year's Eve in Lanzarote, so make sure to book if you have your eye on a certain place.
