The climate of Lanzarote (Canary Islands / Spain)
Lanzarote is one of the most pleasant destinations in Europe. Because of its situation west from the African continent daytime temperatures are almost always 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees Fahrenheit). During the summer daytime temperatures are around 28 degrees Celsius (82.4 degrees Fahrenheit). Because a fairly fierce trade wind blows on the entire island almost all year round it hardly ever gets too hot. However, this does depend on the location you are in. in Playa del Carmen for instance the wind has less influence causing it to feel warmer than in the higher situated residential areas of Playa Blanca in the southern part of the island. Many private pools of villas have a heating system; otherwise the water in the pool would cool down too rapidly under the influence of the wind.

Rain
Precipitation figures are low on Lanzarote. The island gets 150 millimeters of annual precipitation on average, most of which falls from October till May. During the summer precipitation is uncommon. However, during the summer skies may be cloudy, especially in the interior.

Heat
During the summer it may get extremely hot on Lanzarote when an easterly wind blows (the scirocco) which supplies warm air from the Sahara. Chances of this happening are slim, but they do exist. A few days in a row with temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) in combination with the desert sand may cause things to feel unpleasant on the island.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
