What’s the weather like in Lanzarote in June?
Lanzarote’s the furthest east of the Canary Islands, just off the west coast of North Africa. This gives it a lovely warm climate all year round, with high temperatures, no rain and long sunny days in June.
Lanzarote’s so hot because it’s so close to the Sahara Desert, which can send the mercury into overdrive when it blows hot winds over and the occasional dust storm. You’ll usually be kept cool by north easterly trade winds and the Canary Current though, which take the edge off the extreme temperatures. Lanzarote’s quite flat, which means the weather’s fairly similar around the island, although the south generally gets the best of it.
The average high in June’s 26ºC, so you can look forward to spending lots of time soaking up the sun. Be careful in the sun as UV levels will be extreme, there’s nine hours of sunshine from the 14 hours of daylight so use lots of sun cream. Cool down with a dip in the sea, which has a temperature of around 21ºC, while humidity’s low and there isn’t usually any rain in June to spoil a day at the beach. The sun doesn’t set until just before 9pm, but things still stay pleasant in the evenings with temperatures of 17ºC, perfect for having dinner outside with a sunset view.
Things to Do
The weather’s ideal for you to spend long days relaxing in the sun on the beach. If you’re on the east coast try family-friendly Playa de los Charcos or Playa de las Cucharas, which is great for windsurfing. In the south, Playa Flamingo or Playa Blanca are popular, as are surfing, diving and golf.
