With an average temperature above 20 degrees in any season, Lanzarote may be the best choice for a sun and beach holiday but keep an eye out for its winds! It depends on the day and the time of year, of course, but the wind of Lanzarote may spoil your beach day. Therefore, we tell you which are the 5 best windless beaches on the island!
In which area of Lanzarote is it less windy?
If you want to enjoy a day at the beach in Lanzarote, you should pay attention not only to the temperature, but also to the winds and their direction. Otherwise, no matter how much sun it gets, the wind could completely ruin your day of relaxation.
In addition, you should keep in mind that the trade winds constantly hit the island of Lanzarote especially in the summer months. If you do not want the wind to spoil your bath in the sun, we suggest visiting the following beaches:
Surrounded by rocks, this well-known beach is completely protected from the wind. To get here you can get on any of the many boats that reach Papagayo beach from different tourist spots on the island or, on the contrary, arrive by car and even by bicycle. We recommend that you arrive early, as it is one of the most touristic and beautiful beaches on the island.
North of Puerto Calero is this beach that many also know as Playa Blanca. Being the beach of Puerto del Carmen, it is one of the most touristic and well-maintained beaches in Lanzarote. In addition, its strategic geographical position means that this beach hardly suffers the strong winds characteristic of the Canary archipelago. It is the perfect beach to go with children since the water is almost always calm due to the absence of wind.
This small fishermen’s beach is located in the municipality of Yaiza. Its characteristic name is due to the color of its black sand and the rocks that compose it. Playa Quemada has an unbeatable climate, a great marine life and hardly has wind because it is protected by a long and high stone wall. Therefore, although it may not be the beach with the most comfortable access, since it is made of volcanic stone, it can be the best option when looking to be without wind.
El Ancla Beach
It is another of the beaches you have to visit if you do not want to be lying on the sand and suffer from strong winds. Located at the entrance of Costa Teguise, the rocks that protect the beach naturally make you enjoy a quiet swim in turquoise waters.
Known as La Peñita, this small cove located in Puerto del Carmen is another of the best options to avoid the trade winds. Thanks to the rocky area that surrounds it, you can enjoy the sun and its waters with just a little sea breeze.
In addition to not being windy, these five beaches of Lanzarote will enchant you with their beauty, their waters, and their warm temperature almost any day of the year. Come to Lanzarote and discover your favorite beach for every moment of the day.
