Lanzarote Weather

Weather in Lanzarote - If you are looking for year-round sunshine and warmth, you've just found it!  Daytime temperatures in Lanzarote rarely fall below 18 degrees Celsius, yet the island air is constantly refreshed by cooling breezes that blow off the Atlantic Ocean - so it rarely gets 'stuffy' or humid.

As part of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote enjoys average maximum temperatures in winter of 21 °C (70 °F) coupled with about six hours of sunshine. However, by May the daily average maximum temperature rises to 24 °C (75 °F) (Autumn months are similar), and it reaches 29 °C (85 °F) in the summer season.

Typically, there are 21 dry days each month during the winter season, rising to 26-29 days in the Spring, and 30 days in the summer months.

Hours of sunshine:  averages are 6-7 hours of sunshine each day in the winter months, increasing to 9 hours in Spring and Autumn, and 11 hours in the summer months.

Clocks go forward and back at the same time as in the UK, and there is no time difference between the UK and Lanzarote. Generally it gets light slightly later in the morning, and dark slightly later in the evening (compared to the UK).
