As a general rule, Lanzarote enjoys good weather whatever the time of year – making it possible to enjoy a beach break even during the depths of December.
During the summer months from the start of May to the end of October you can pretty much count on sunshine all day long and little or no rainfall.
The weather is a lot less humid in the summer than the Mediterranean as Lanzarote is in the much cooler Atlantic Ocean, so you can sleep more comfortably at night and also can get out and about during the day without melting!
Lanzarote does have its moments though, and temperatures can soar for a few days at a time when the calima winds are blown in from the Sahara.
In winter the weather is generally warmer than the Mediterranean and you can regularly be sunbathing on golden sandy, beaches when family and friends back in UK are scrapping ice off their cars!
But, that said, pretty much like any other holiday destination on the planet, Lanzarote can also endure some grey days, some cold spells and even some rain.
Often in the winter months the day may start cloudy due to moisture picked up from the sea overnight, but do not fear as the cloud is usually burnt off by late morning leaving clear blue skies and a lovely temperature right through to the evening evening.
This is ideal to get out and about during the morning, maybe for some sightseeing, shopping or perhaps a walk, run or cycle and then settle down to some serious relaxation and sunbathing in the afternoon.
During the winter months between November and March the temperature is cooler than the summer and the weather can become more unstable, albeit there is a good chance the sun will still shine.
We would always recommend packing a fleece or jumper or two even in the spring months as the wind can get up and the temperature drops in the evening when the sun goes down.

The Island is relatively flat (maximum altitude 670 m), of volcanic origin, with vast lava fields, known as malpais, and a profusion of craters in the Timanfaya National Park.
There are also shallow sea beds harbouring a great wealth of biodiversity.
The climate is dry sub-tropical, with trade winds and a mean annual rainfall of 115 mm, and no permanent water courses. The vegetation is xerophyllus adapted to storing and retaining humidity. There is a high number of endemic species.
The island culture developed a series of adaptations to trap and use the scantand unpredictable rainfall.
This is the case of agricultural techniques for sowing under ash and volcanic sheet flows under inverted cones forming unique landscapes such asthose of the Geria valley.
The primary sector has gradually lost importance vis-à-visthe tourist sector that has a network of centres designed by the Lanzarotan artist César Manrique.
These blend perfectly with the natural environment.
