Weather in Lanzarote in March
Is March a good month to visit Lanzarote?
With blazing sunshine, moderately warm temperatures, and little to no rain or wind, a holiday in Lanzarote in March is just about as good as it gets. There is a teeny blight on paradise, however – there may be a day or two of unpleasant sand storms, accompanied by thirsty spiked temperatures, blowing in from the Sahara desert just across the sea. These occurrences are very occasional, however, and the likelihood is that your visit to Lanzarote in March will be sunny, warm and memorable as one of the best breaks you have ever enjoyed.
Climate in Lanzarote in March
With just a token 18mm of rain for the month, average temperatures of 24°C, cloudless skies and the sea washing the shore at a refreshing 18°C, Lanzarote in March is as close to an idyllic sunshine holiday as you can get. While the northern hemisphere struggles to enter spring, summer has never really left this island with its fun resorts and white beaches, all through the long northern winter.
What’s on in Lanzarote in March
Irish ex-pats ensure that St Patrick’s Day (March 17) does not go unnoticed in Lanzarote, particularly in the clubs and pubs. Apart from the “wearing of the green” you may like to check out the Malpais Festival of the arts which starts in March and runs through until May, or take to two wheels and join in the Costa Teguise Mountain Bike rally.
What to pack
As Europe emerges from the winter it may be difficult to find a new swimsuit in the stores, but pack last year’s along with some flip flops, shorts, skirts and cool shirts for your March holiday in Lanzarote. For evenings, a warm jumper or two and even a light coat may be required, but don’t worry about a raincoat or brolly ... little call for those here in the delightful, dry Canaries.
