Our weather returned to a more typical winter pattern during the month of March in Lanzarote.

Costa Teguise in March

March was off to a beautiful start in Lanzarote, it was generally a couple of degrees warmer than recently and much sunnier. We experienced a calima with some dust in the air and lots of ladybirds during the second week and an oddity of hailstones & thunder in the third week of the month.

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.

Which months are the warmest and coolest?


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.

To contrast that with Dublin, the warmest month is July,  read more »

Lanzarote Weather: February 2015

February was a disappointing month for weather in Lanzarote, the sun was often hidden behind clouds this year.

Waves in Arrieta

Lanzarote’s winter sunshine was a bit lacking this month, there was quite a lot of cloud around. It wasn’t wet, in fact it’s been a dry winter since the initial rainfall in November. It was just all a bit grey and definitely on the cool side without the sun.

Lanzarote Weather, December 2014

It was a mixed month of weather for Lanzarote during the month of December.

Christmas morning on Playa Las Cucharas in Costa Teguise

We had some stunning beach days interspersed through the month and the weather didn’t disappoint for Christmas Day again this year. At this time of year in Lanzarote you should expect a cloudy start, with the sun breaking through mid morning and a chance of a shower during the day. With most days reaching a top temperature of 20-23 degrees, it's still warm enough to enjoy lazing on a sun lounger and working on your tan. An east wind brought two calimas in quick succession, the first just before Christmas and the second a week later in time for New Year.
