Weather in Lanzarote - If you are looking for year-round sunshine and warmth, you've just found it! Daytime temperatures in Lanzarote rarely fall below 18 degrees Celsius, yet the island air is constantly refreshed by cooling breezes that blow off the Atlantic Ocean - so it rarely gets 'stuffy' or humid.
As part of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote enjoys average maximum temperatures in winter of 21 °C (70 °F) coupled with about six hours of sunshine. However, by May the daily average maximum temperature rises to 24 °C (75 °F) (Autumn months are similar), and it reaches 29 °C (85 °F) in the summer season.
Typically, there are 21 dry days each month during the winter season, rising to 26-29 days in the Spring, and 30 days in the summer months.
Hours of sunshine: averages are 6-7 hours of sunshine each day in the winter months, increasing to 9 hours in Spring and Autumn, and 11 hours in the summer months.
(Average temperatures, hours of sunshine , and dry days are courtesy of the Met Office website)
Clocks go forward and back at the same time as in the UK, and there is no time difference between the UK and Lanzarote. Generally it gets light slightly later in the morning, and dark slightly later in the evening (compared to the UK).

The Canary Islands region
Playa Blanca is situated at the most southern point of Lanzarote and is approximately 30 mins 30 km from the airport by taxi and 37 kilometres from the Capital also Arrecife. For those who prefer not to hire a car it is possible to get from the airport to the villa using public transport. Further information on request. There is now a water park in Playa blanca, 20 euros for adults and 14 for children and that's for the whole day.
For those who prefer not to hire a car or has reduced mobility there is a bus stop by Villa del Sur which networks around the seafront, town, marina rubicon, harbour and bus station and runs twice an hour. The bus station in Playa Blanca town provides a regular service to towns north of the island including Arrecife Coach station . A well stocked hiperdino supermarket and snack bar is close to the villa supermarket,.
Playa Blanca happens to be the most recently developed resort on the island. Consequently it has become an attractive holiday destination which has learnt from the mistakes made by other resorts and is more tranquil and less noisy . There has been a good investment in infrastructure in Playa Blanca as well as holiday villas and hotels.
The newly built promenade is the heart of the place for visitors with its myriad of cafes, restaurants, shops and bars. At midday when everyone has returned from the beach, the promenade walk is full of people, where all sorts of languages can be heard in Babylonian fashion.
The new pedestrian walkway is right through the centre of the village where you will find many shops, restaurants, banks, bars and supermarkets where one can wander about and look for gifts to take home. There are cafes and restaurants to suit every taste. Despite all this Playa Blanca retains the atmosphere of a small and charming village.
The nicest beach is the Playa Dorada, or Golden Beach, which is clean and being partly manmade is well protected and safe. The people who visit it usually spend the whole day there, and is recommended for families and children as it is busy but broad, there is diving, paracraft, banana sky bus, jet sky.
Beyond the harbour you will find another beach called Playa Flamingo, with a lively atmosphere all around.
What Time Does It Go Dark
It's a question we're often asked. We're much closer to the equator than northern European countries, so the difference between winter months and summer months is much less marked – that means our winter days are much longer, but our summer days are shorter.
We've selected sunrise and sunset times for key months through the year to give you a feel for what to expect:
In mid March, the sun rises at 0704 and sets at 1903, making the day a fraction under 12 hours long.
In the middle of June the sun rises at 0655 and sets at 2054 making the day almost 14 hours long.
In September the sun rises at 0739 and sets at 1959 making the day 12 hours and 20 minutes long.
In the middle of winter the sun rises at 0740 and sets at 1759 making the day 10 hours and 18 minutes long.
As you can see, the difference between the middle of summer (14 hours) and the middle of winter (10 hours and 18 minutes) is only 3 hours and 42 minutes. This compares to London where the difference between summer's longest day (16 hours and 49 minutes) and winter's shortest day (7 hours and 38 minutes) is over nine hours!
In the evening the Marina Rubicon is idea for groups of friends couples and families who are looking for restaurants, bars, studios and boutiques or just stop for a coffee glass of wine or dessert within view of the sea or just roam around the trendy shops and galleries which stay open til 10 pm. For nightlife head for the Jungle Bar which has evening entertainment and singers.
A childrens playground and cafe bar is less than a 10 minute walk together with a new modern shopping centre called El Pueblo with fashion, gift shops and quality restaurants and bars. A supermarket, 'Ropers' that sells virtually everything from an amazing variety of fresh and frozen fish/meat/veg/salad to local delicacies is also situated in El Pueblo. The sports bar has everything from Sky sports to good quality well priced snacks available every day. The local beach is ideal for fishing and rock pooling for the kids.
The new Marina Rubicon makes Playa Blanca a more upmarket resort and is only a 15-20 minute walk or 5 minute drive from Villa Citrus. Also from our villa in a different direction is a new Shopping Centre and a luxurious 5 star hotel Dream Castillo which offers spa treatments if you fancy pampering yourself.
The Marina is enticing at night with many upmarket trendy designer boutiques, shops, galleries - perfect for roaming around after a satisfying meal in one of the many restaurants or just to sit and enjoy a coffee/dessert or a glass of wine and watch the yachts and people go by.
A recently opened restaurant called El Mirador has sea views and sun loungers, so it's possible to have a cocktail whilst watching the sunset in total comfort whilst listening to music.
If you prefer the villa has a good supply of varied dvds and there is an English Speaking Disney Channel on the tv.
We can personally recommend Ropers Supermarket (13 minute walk from the villa in the El Pueblo Shopping Centre) for excellent quality and a varied selection of meat, chicken, ribs, fish, fresh salad, beer and wine for a perfect bbq but don't forget to buy the bricks and long matches. The villa is equipped with bbq and bbq cooking implements. But please remember to clean the bbq afterwards or our managers can do it for you for 50 euros.

"A Peaceful Haven"
We have just spent 12 days at Villa Citrus and I am now so relaxed I am almost going backwards ! The villa is in a quiet but accessible location. The bus stop is a minute away. (Just to the left of the mini roundabout) and costs 1.35 euro to Playa Blanca or to Marina Rubicon. The Marina is a 20 min walk - just down to the seafront and along to the right - with lovely sea views all the way. A taxi back is approx 3 euro and 3.50 from playa blanca. Very nice restaurants at the Marina but pricier than in town. We did eat in a couple of nights - supermarket just through the mini roundabout on the right or if looking for excellent fresh meats/steaks go to the Roper Supermarket.
The villa itself is very clean and tidy and what you see in the pictures is what you get. There is no air con but by using the fans and sleeping with the bedroom windows open (shutters keep the insects out) we found it cool for sleeping. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable although we did find it a little small but then my man is over 6ft and very broad !!
We also opted to have the pool heated and I am glad we did, it kept the water at a very comfortable temperature and with the heat reaching 35 degrees some days, it was well used. It is 1.8m deep but even if not a competent swimmer the side is never far away.
As taxi fares from the airport are around 45 euro single trip - for two of us it was cheaper to book the Ryanair (or Last Minute.com) minibus which is 18 euro each RETURN - delivered to your door and picked up from there on way home. We did hire a car for a few days(car hire next to the supermarket) and travelled all over the island. I would say 3 days is enough for any sightseeing you may wish to do. Any questions or directions just ask Linda who is great for information and is there for any problems you may have. Lastly, when you arrive at the villa the 'key safe' is inside the shutter doors.

Very nice, neat and tidy home, perfect for walking to the Coastal Path which leads you to the Rubicon Marina. Very quite in residental area, no noise whatsoever. We had a little problem, but that was sorted out with little inconvenience to us by Mike, who keeps an eye on the villa and lives a few doors away, so no problem. We took advantage of the heating for the pool this year, which was well worth it. Great option for some Winter Sun. Little word to the Ladies, you do need a little Jacket for the evenings, I found it a little cold this year once the sun had gone down.
