Averages for Lanzarote in March
As Lanzarote has lower mountains than other islands in the Canary Islands, its weather tends to be much more consistent. There are, of course, seasonal changes and differences in temperature at the higher elevations, but the temperature does not vary incredibly from one season to the next.
February and March see the stronger of two sand storm seasons on the island. The storms can last for a couple of days at a time, completely obscuring the sun from view and making visibility around 650 feet (200 metres). The dust storms can also bring temperatures that are as much as 20 degrees above the normal averages. The average temperature is 65.3°F (18.5°C).
The average low temperature during March is between 58.1 and 59°F (14.5 and 15°C), while the average high temperature is between 74.3 and 75.2°F (23.5 and 24°C). This is the reason that the Canary Islands have earned the title “Land of Eternal Spring.” Sunbathers and water adventurers will be happy to find that the average sea temperature is 64.4°F (18°C).
There is an average of 0.59” (15 mm) of precipitation. There is an average of 16 days of precipitation annually. These days are usually in December, January, and February; however, tourists may see 1 to 2 days of rain in March. There is an average of 8 hours of sunlight.
Dates for the diary
Carnaval is generally celebrated in February, depending on the date of Easter, but the celebrations are staggered throughout the season so that tourists and locals can participate in all of them. Usually, the last Carnaval of the season, held in the city of Playa Blanca, falls in March.
Things to do
A landmark that's recommended to visit is the Jameos Del Agua. This is a 3.7 mile (6 kilometre) collapsed lava tube that has been altered by several architects to create a below-ground restaurant, bar and garden. On the other side of this, tourists will find a swimming pool in which only the King of Spain is allowed to swim. There is also a concert hall made of volcanic rock.
Where to stay
Las Costas hotel in Puerto del Carmen is a highly rated resort because of its attention to detail. The staff there are considered excellent by almost all who visit.
