What does Lanzarote offer in winter?

They say that the best time to visit Lanzarote are the months of April, May, June, September and October. Why? Because there are more hours of light so you can get to know the island better, because the climate is very pleasant and because the prices are cheaper as it is low season. But who says you can't visit Lanzarote in the cold months? There are many reasons for a trip at this time of year. Enjoy Lanzarote in winter!
