Christmas on the beach in Puerto del Carmen
If you haven't booked anywhere and you can't find anything to your taste, there's a great alternative always available to anyone: the beach!
Since you've planned a winter holiday in Lanzarote, Christmas on the beach is always a good alternative and it will be something to remember. In December temperatures are still in their 20°C and rarely drop below 20°C, so do some shopping the day before and spend Christmas day on the beach. No reservation needed, Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen is large enough for anyone willing to spend the day here.
The Canary Islands are actually the warmest places to visit in December in Europe, so if you're planning a hot and sunny trip for the holidays, you should look no further than Lanzarote or any of the other islands in the archipelago.
