Lanzarote is one of the smaller islands in the archipelago, but this doesn't mean it falls behind on the weather front. Winters in Lanzarote are mild and warm, as in all the Canaries, so if you're planning a sunny Christmas, Lanzarote might be a great choice.
November might not be the warmest month in Lanzarote throughout the year, but it's definitely sunnier and warmer than the UK and mainland Europe.
September is our favorite month to visit Lanzarote. The weather in September is still hot, but not quite as hot as in August. Also, after the first week of September passes the big summer crowds start to disappear, as schools start the new year all across Europe. Just don't imagine that you'll have the island all to yourself, since Lanzarote is a year-round destination, and it's lively and busy even in winter.
August is the hottest month in Lanzarote and there's no doubt about it. July is not that far behind, but August really takes the lead in terms of high temperatures here in Lanzarote.
July is the month when temperatures start to rise well above 30°C constantly during the daytime, although July is not the warmest month of the year. That prize is reserved for August, which is the hottest month in Lanzarote, but July is not so far behind in terms of high temperatures and sunshine hours.
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 of rainy days. AWAY with the rain and IN with the sun!
May starts to feel like proper summer in Lanzarote, the UV index is already at high levels and the warm weather is just perfect for a lazy day in the sun, followed by a dip in the sea.
October is a relatively peaceful and quiet month in Lanzarote, apart from the autumn half-term holiday period when prices also go up considerably. So if you are not conditioned by school holidays, try to plan your arrival to the island outside of that period to get a better price for flights and accommodation.
If you're thinking of visiting Lanzarote during the winter season, you may be wondering if it ever snows on the island and what type of weather you can expect?
Starting April, the chances of rain Lanzarote start to drop considerably and the weather is perfect for sunbathing, as well as for walking about while visiting the island.
March marks the transition from winter to spring in Lanzarote and the weather gets warmer and warmer as the month progresses. So the island is the perfect escape place for people seeking to escape the bitter cold back home.
If you're looking for a bit of warm weather during those cold winter months back home, Lanzarote might be the perfect choice for a holiday abroad: you have mild temperatures, a sunny sky usually during the daytime and what's more important...no snow!
When in doubt about where to go for a sunny winter break, Lanzarote is always a good idea. No matter the season, Lanzarote is blessed with a mild climate, which makes visitors fall in love with both its beauty and its warm weather.
