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.
Winter in Lanzarote
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?
These are the temperatures around new year's in the recent past years:
January 1st 2016: 23°C max /17°C min
December 31st 2016: 20°C max /18°C min
January 1st 2017: 21°C max /17°C min
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.
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.
New Year's Eve Parties and Celebrations 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.
The schedule for these street parties is usually announced later in December, closer to the 31st and we will update this page constantly with more information about the events that are coming up for this time of year.
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.
