New Year's Eve in Lanzarote 2020
One of the first questions people ask when thinking of spending New Year's Eve in Lanzarote is: what weather can we expect? Do we need a cardigan or coat for the evenings?
Winter in Lanzarote
If you're looking for a sunny winter break, then a trip to the Canary Islands might be exactly what you need: imagine a sunny Christmas in Lanzarote, followed by a New Year's Eve party at one of the nice restaurants in the island.
Usually, around New Year's Eve, the temperatures are around 20 - 23°C during the daytime, while at night you can expect temperatures around 16°C.
As you can see, during the daytime is still warm enough to sunbathe and wear shorts and T-shirts, especially when it's a sunny day. Take a look at our article about Lanzarote weather in January if you want to see more photos and get more info about temperatures in January on the island.
Playa Blanca is the most sheltered resort on the island and with the best weather during the winter months. On the opposite side, Costa Teguise tends to be windier as it's located more up north, but each place has its ups and downs and you should do your research about the resorts in Lanzarote before making a decision, especially if it's your first visit and you don't yet which location would suit you best.
What to do on New Year's Eve in Lanzarote
Each year there are public celebrations held in the main town and resorts on the island, with music bands and fireworks at midnight.
Most bars and restaurants will host their own celebrations and if you want to participate in some of these events you should book in advance, as some of them get full really fast.
