Where is Lanzarote?

Quick Guide To Lanzarote. The northernmost and furthest East of the Canary Islands archipelago. Set in the Atlantic Ocean to the west of Morroco.
One of the most majestic of all the Canary Islands. Sweeping rocky landscapes.
Blood red sunrises and sunsets.
Lanzarote is approximately 100 miles from the coast of Africa. Which ensures lovely year round sunshine and higher than average temperatures.
Our nearest neighbour is Fuerteventura. Only a stone throw away. 12 kilometres (7 miles) away from Playa Blanca.  A kilometre (0.62 miles) away from Lanzarote’s Northern coast lays the little island of La Graciosa. Treasure Island!

more sun than you can shake a stick at

With over 2500 hours of sunshine a year. Southern Lanzarote basks in pretty much permanent sunny warm weather 360 days a year. (Get in!!) Central Lanzarote has a more moderate climate. Enjoying the cool trade winds wooshing on down from the mountains. Northern Lanzarote feels a little more windswept and keeps most of the annual rain. Still a perfect climate for those wishing for a bit of respite in the summer months.
