Christmas in Lanzarote is a wonderful experience, with the island all decorated for the holidays and New Year's.
You are almost guaranteed to have a sunny and warm Christmas if you decide to spend the holidays here. Last year in 2016 there were 21 Celsius in Puerto del Carmen and in 2015 the temperature on Christmas Day was of 22 Celsius, so no matter what you do, a visit to the beach is a must on that day.
At this time of year there are plenty events going on all over the island, so we made a list of suggestions of things to do in Lanzarote this Christmas.

Most of the restaurants will have a special Christmas menu, usually with British or Irish traditional dishes.
Christmas is considered high season in Lanzarote, so the best restaurants will be fully booked with months in advance.
