What Is the Best Time to Visit Lanzarote?

Lanzarote is the third most populous of the Canary Islands of Spain, after Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Lanzarote is a popular tourist destination, and is known for Timanfaya National Park, which is located in the center of the island.

The climate of Lanzarote is defined as “subtropical-desert.” The island is nicknamed the “Island of the Eternal Spring” due to the fact that temperatures are warm year-round. Summers in Lanzarote are hot, arid, and desert-like, and rarely see precipitation. It is common for the island to see no precipitation in the months of June, July and August. Winters are slightly cooler, with precipitation occurring between December and February.

Because it can get extremely hot in the summer in Lanzarote, the best time to visit is in the spring, during the months of March, April or May, or in the fall, during the months of September or October.
