The Canarian island of Lanzarote has somewhat of a bad reputation for loud and loutish behaviour of tourists but get away from the nightlife strips and you’ll discover an island of incredible natural beauty. Often compared to the landscape of Mars, the dramatic black lava fields, towering red cliffs and spent volcanic cones make for an altogether surreal experience. Its climate is as unique as its topography, with temperatures rarely dropping below 18 degrees, and rarely topping 25, making Lanzarote holidays a solid option at any time of the year. It boasts some of the best beaches in all of the Canaries, from striking black sand numbers such as El Golfo, home to the famous green lagoon, to the beautiful and desolate golden sands of Playa de las Conchas and the bone-white Caleton Blanco. Lanzarote is also a great holiday destination for watersports and diving; Famara’s epic beach and reef breaks draw surfers from all over the world, and the island is home to Europe’s first underwater sculpture museum where artist Jason deCaires Taylor has submerged sculptures 12m below sea level near Marina Rubicon.
Why book Lanzarote holidays?
When to go
Lanzarote has a rather unique climate. The temperature rarely gets above 25 degrees, and rarely below 18 degrees. Rain is very rare here, resulting in a somewhat dry climate with an average of only eight inches of rain annually, with most of that falling between December and January. Thanks to this climate, Lanzarote holidays are a superb option at any time of the year. It’s particularly favoured in the winter months when holidaymakers are wanting to get away from the rain and cold in their home countries.
