Once June hits, the weather starts to feel like proper summer in Lanzarote: temperatures go up, the number of sunshine hours goes up, as well as the number of visitors.
The only thing that usually goes down (and which is a good thing) is the number or rainy days. Away with the rain and in with the sun!
Weather in Lanzarote in June
The average temperature in June is 23°C, but during the daytime it can get pretty hot. So pack a high factor UV protection cream or buy one on the island. Just don't skip this step when being exposed to the sunlight. You really don't want to get a sunburn while on holiday in Lanzarote.
Sunrise in June is at around 6:50 am and sunsets are at about 8:50 pm, so you're got more than 12 hours of daylight to enjoy all of Lanzarote's attractions.
If you're planning to have just a relaxing holiday, with chilling by the pool or on the beach, then you might want to wait for the second half of the month, when temperatures tend to go even further up.
With June here the trade winds will start making their presence felt, but on most days the wind speed will be lower than 20 km/h. On some days it can even go over 40km/h, but this shouldn't put you off from booking a June holiday to Lanzarote. The weather is nowadays difficult to predict, and you can have surprises at any time of the year.

Since the island is mostly flat, the temperatures stay pretty much the same across all major resorts in Lanzarote: Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise.
With so many daylight hours and temperatures usually above 25°C during the daytime, the month of June is perfect for sunbathing on the beach without feeling the need to hide from the sun after 10 minutes (like it happens to us during the summer months July & August).
We love summer in the Canaries and warm weather in general, and I know that for some folks there's no such thing as "too hot" or "too high temperatureas", but for myself anything over 30°C is hard to tolerate. Especially here in the Canary Islands, where the sun feels more powerful due to the location close to the Ecuator.
So June, with temperatures above 25°C but usually below 30°C, is like heaven for me and my partner.
