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.
2022 has been the year of recovery in terms of tourism in Lanzarote and many people have waited for the restrictions to be over before they ventured on a holiday abroad. So it's safe to say that this Christmas will be a busy one in Lanzarote since many people are excited to be able to spend a warm winter holiday abroad.
You are almost guaranteed to have a sunny and warm Christmas if you decide to spend the holidays here. In 2021, the maximum temperature was 21°C on Christmas Day, so no matter what you do, a visit to the beach is a must on that day if it's that warm and sunny. 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.
The most expected event of the Christmas celebrations in Puerto del Carmen is the Santa Parade, which takes place every year and is considered some sort of a tradition.
The municipality of Tías already has its Christmas and Three Kings schedule ready, which begins on December 1 in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento with children's workshops and turning on Christmas lights with LED lights.
This section will be updated soon.
Usually, in December there are several activities and events organized, like a Christmas market, concerts and many activities for children throughout the month.
