Averages for Lanzarote in November
The Canary Islands are known for their year-round spring-like temperatures. For maximum sunlight hours, tourists should opt to stay on the southern side of Lanzarote since days can remain cloudy all day in the northern and eastern parts of the island because of the mountains.
The average temperature is 68.5°F (20.3°C). Lanzarote is never cold. These temperatures are actually ideal for shopping and touring. The average low temperature is between 62.6 and 71.6°F (17 and 18°C) during November. The average high temperature is still warm, found somewhere between 75.2 and 78.8°F (24 and 26°C). The average sea temperature is between 60.8 and 71.6°F (21 and 22°C).
There is an average of 0.47” (12 mm) of precipitation. There is an average of 16 days of precipitation annually. Most of those days fall between December, January and February. Some of them, though, will come in November as well. Although this is considered “rainy” for the island, this is a relative term since the summer months do not see any rainfall whatsoever. There is an average of 6-7 hours of sunlight a day.
November, nor any other month in this city for that matter, is not disturbed by tropical storms and hurricanes as one might expect with its ocean location. The Canary Islands’ climate is not conducive to the formation of these storms. The low humidity is a contributing factor. The closest the island has come to severe weather in the recent past was a tropical storm in 2009 that caused some wind damage and flooding in certain areas.
Dates for the diary
Because the weather is so consistent, running races are quite popular in Lanzarote, especially in the autumn. The Lanzarote Marathon is held during this month. This particular race has half-marathon and fourth-marathon portions as well to suit even more runners’ ability levels.
Things to do
The main shopping district is a street called Calle Leon y Castillo. While you’re there, though, you should also stroll over to the promenade on Jose Antonio Street, Fajardo Street and Canalejas Street. The capital city of Arrecife offers good duty-free shops with items as varied as electronics and locally-made crafts.
Parasailing is quite a popular activity all year long. Companies such as Paracraft Lanzarote also offer parascending, jet skiing, banana boat riding and unique “fly-boat” riding. This attraction can be found on the Playa Chica in Puerto del Carmen.
Where to stay
One of the best southern-based resorts is Heredad Kamezi Villas.
