What's The Weather REALLY Like in Lanzarote?

It’s the subject of countless questions on our social media pages and via email. Without a doubt, the single most important thing for our readers is to know what the weather will be like for their holiday.

Lanzarote, and the other Canary Islands are described as having the “World’s best climate.” And it’s probably true! We don’t suffer from any extremes of weather here – our winters are like the warmest British or Irish summer days, and during the summer we almost never suffer from the stifling heat you can find in the Mediterranean.

We’ve put together this little summary of some of the key points about our weather, based on records dating back to 1981, and in each case we’ve used a well known place in northern Europe as a comparison.

Temperature

August is the warmest month, with a mean  temperature of 25.2 degrees, and January is the coolest with 17.4 degrees. The record high recorded on the island is 43.6 degrees, and the record low is 8.0 degrees.

It does seem that neither of the top three sides want to win the league championship and gain entry to the Copa Del Rey (F.A. Cup) for next season. Incredibly the leagues bottom club CD La Laguna has taken four points off the top two sides in the last fortnight.

There is no doubt that the Conejeros (locals) should have won this match against the 4th placed Gran Canarian side especially as the visitors were reduced to 10 men in just the second minute following a head butt by striker Victor on defender Falo.

If anything the sending off of the  read more »
