What’s the weather like in Lanzarote in March?
Sitting off the west coast of northern Africa, Lanzarote’s the furthest east of the Canary Islands. It enjoys warm weather all year round, with temperatures rising in March as spring goes on. If you’re going to the island in March you’ll get plenty of sunshine and not much rain.
Lanzarote’s close to the Sahara Desert and would overheat if not for the cooling Canary Current and north easterly winds. Things do get hot when the desert sends winds over to the island, as well as the occasional dust storm. Lanzarote’s quite flat, so the weather’s similar across the island, although the south’s generally a bit warmer and sunnier than the north.
Hitting the beach is great in Lanzarote during March as the average high temperature hits 23ºC. Bring a selection of sunnies and swimmers for the days, but don’t forget to bring some warmer things for the evenings. The average sea temperature’s 18ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from 52% to just under 90%. Average rainfall’s just 14mm over three rainy days.
You can expect 12 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day in March. Take care of yourself in the sun as UV levels are very high. Sunset’s before 7pm at the beginning of the month, and after 8pm, once daylight saving starts towards the end of March.
