WHEN TO GO

Temperatures in Lanzarote rarely fall below 16°C in the winter and 25°C in the summer, a climate which has earned the island the nickname ‘the land of eternal spring’. It stays pretty dry year-round, too. In June, July and August, there’s usually no rain at all.

Health & Safety

You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Spanish nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment.
