Can’t quite justify a winter holiday in the Caribbean, but yearning for some winter sunshine? Then look no further than Lanzarote. Full of fun in the sun opportunities, a winter break on this stunning island will have you kicking off the snow boots and slapping on the sun cream in no time. Not only famous for its beautiful beaches, the island of Lanzarote is also a firm favourite with winter travellers because of its national parks, water sports, and magical volcanic landscape. All this can be enjoyed in a moderate climate that is much more manageable than the soaring temperatures of the summer months.
Mild winters are the highlight in Lanzarote, which makes it an ideal off-peak destination. The Atlantic waters rarely change in temperature from summer to winter and although the odd stormy day may creep up on you, these are very rare and always interspersed with gorgeous warm sunshine. 20°C temperatures are the norm and even the sea is pleasant at 18-19°C.
If Lanzarote is your destination of choice for some winter sunshine, then make sure you make the most of the fantastic weather and head into the fabulous Timafaya National Park, home to the Montanas del Fuego (the Fire Mountains). Formed 200 years ago when 100 volcanoes erupted at once, this otherworldly landscape can be explored on camel or on foot: take your pick! Kids will love a trip to the Guiate Tropical Park, where they can spot thousands of mammals and bird species living in amongst the waterfalls, lakes and tropical gardens. Parrot shows are the highlight here so make sure you don’t miss out!
