Winter Holidays in Lanzarote

The long, grey English winter is liable to bring even the most festive souls down with a bout of winter blues, and heading South for holidays is increasingly popular from October to March.  Lanzarote offers holiday-goers eager to escape the wet and cold a perfect getaway with warm weather and beautiful beaches.   It’s possible to find some great deals on the internet for holidays on the small Spanish Island too: providers offer a range of hotel and apartment based holidays, or you can search for a perfect Lanzarote villa, complete with all the luxuries you need for a perfect holiday, including a private swimming pool, and even a hot tub sometimes!

What is more, with temperatures averaging 22ºC from November to April, you certainly won't miss the cold back home!

Not only does Lanzarote provide a change in temperature which many will welcome with open arms during the winter months, but there is an impressive array of things to do in Lanzarote.  A great proportion of the landscape was shaped by volcanoes, and even now that molten rock has solidified and the volcano in the centre of the island is semi dormant, it is easy to imagine those awesome forces of nature at work.  The terrain in Timanfaya National Park brings to mind the surface of the moon and, on a sunny day in January, is about as far from a grim commute to work through the morning drizzle as you can imagine.

It may come as a surprise, but winter in Lanzarote is a good time to learn how to surf, jet-ski, or take part in a range of watersports and sailing activities.  With water warm enough to swim in throughout the winter months there’s no reason to get cold feet!  The surf school in Playa de Famara on the north side of the Island enjoys a particularly good reputation, with level 4 BSA certification, and fantastic waves along Famara Beach.

For parents on holiday with their children, Puerto Del Carmen is particularly family-friendly with its white sandy beaches.  Alternatively, children are sure to love the water park in Costa Teguise, or the rancho texas theme park (in the same area). 

Of course, even if you’re enjoying the warmth, there’s no reason not to bring a bit of festive cheer to the proceedings as well, and Lanzarote has no shortage of bars.  The capital, Arrecife, hosts an eclectic mix of places to eat and drink, and local fiestas take place throughout the year: the atmosphere, just as much as the weather, will warm your very soul!
