There are many reasons that make Lanzarote a great destination for family holidays. It is just a four-hour flight from most UK airports, which is manageable even with the most energetic of little ones. The warm and dry year-round climate makes it perfect for those seeking some winter sun. Plus, there is so much to see and do on this charming island, from viewing volcanoes to making a splash at the water parks. Located approximately 70 miles off the coast of Africa, the Spanish island of Lanzarote is one of the smallest of the super popular Canary Islands.
Lanzarote has a sub-tropical climate with hot summers and very mild winters usually with year-round sunshine. For the highest temperatures, the best time to visit Lanzarote is between June and September although the subtropical climate offers sunshine throughout the year and winter months are equally popular with visitors.
