Looking for some travel inspiration for this Winter? Lianne, responsible for the Spanish market and content/translations at SeaBookings, gives us 5 reasons to visit Lanzarote in low season.
Are you planning your holidays to the Canary Islands? Maybe it’s time to visit Lanzarote. Whether you plan your holidays to Lanzarote in high or low season, it all depends on what you want from your holiday.
We are sure that both in peak season and in low season you will have a good time spending your holidays in Lanzarote.
Some like to follow the trend and visit places during the summer season, for others they want to escape the madding crowd and come when it’s quieter.
Of course, this very much depends upon whether you have children and are tied to visiting during the school holidays.
The summer months, when it’s a popular time to go on holidays to Lanzarote, are July and August. But visiting Lanzarote during low season, between the months September and June, is maybe one of the best things you can do. Really! During this time of the year, there are so many beautiful things you can see and the fact that it’s less crowded means that you can enjoy the island even better.
Here are Lianne’s 5 reasons to visit Lanzarote in low season:
#1 Sunshine guaranteed
One of the major advantages of Lanzarote during low season is the weather. It’s not boiling hot, but comfortably warm. The average temperatures are between 19°C and 22°C in December and January. The sunshine and very low rainfall throughout the year makes it easy to escape from the cold winter and enjoy what Lanzarote got to offer.
So, if you are looking for some summer sun, why not spend Christmas next to a palm tree instead of a Christmas tree? 😉
#2 It’s quieter
There are not so many tourists on the island Lanzarote during the low season. That means that you can really enjoy the island without too many people spoiling it for you! The island is such a relaxing place to visit in the off-season.
Life can be pretty hectic at times and when on holiday, we understand you really want to relax and reload before you go back home. Lanzarote is just the perfect place to do that during the low season.
#3 Dolphin watching in Lanzarote
Doing a boat tour to search wild dolphins is a fun and exciting experience for young and old. Dolphin watching in Lanzarote can be done all year round, also in low season! From Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote, it is easy to navigate to the open seas of the Atlantic Ocean where many dolphins and other cetaceans pass. If you are lucky, you might even spot some whales!
Experience the thrill of searching for dolphins, whales and other marine mammals in their natural habitat during a dolphin watching trip in Lanzarote! After watching these incredible loved creatures it is even possible to watch an amazing sunset, if you decide to join a boat trip in the afternoon/evening of course 😉
#4 Discover the natural reserve of Isla de Lobos
The nature reserve Isla de Lobos (Lobos island) is a sanctuary for sea lions, rare birds and lizards. Also, the waters surrounding the island are full of a huge variety of fish and other sea creatures. Beach lovers should definitely visit the island. Because there are no buildings around to offer shade on Lobos island, it is advisable to visit the island during the winter months when the weather is cooler.
During the period from November to March, the weather conditions are more easily tolerated and it will be easier to explore this island. If you decide to do a boat tour from Lanzarote to Lobos island, you will get you the opportunity to walk through the natural park and the fisherman village.
Did you know that there is a natural spa on the island? The crystal clear turquoise waters will definitely make you want to take a dip in the ocean. Fill yourself with vitamin D on the white sandy beaches.
#5 La Graciosa island
La Graciosa is known for its calm and crystal clear waters and incredible beaches. In La Graciosa, you can go to the beach during winter and even might swim in the Atlantic Ocean! To get to La Graciosa island you should cross the sea from Ózorla, a fishermen’s population on the north of Lanzarote.
The best way to do this is with a catamaran boat tour in Lanzarote. Enjoy the marine reserve of La Graciosa and walk through the unpaved streets of the island where it seems that time stops.
