Averages for Lanzarote in October
During October, the weaker of two waves of dust storms that affect the island begins. This one is not a major holiday-planning concern, since it is confined to higher elevations. The only consequence that tourists will see is the foggy or hazy skies that can result. No bad weather accompanies these dust storms.
The average temperature is 72.5°F (22.5°C). Those who do not mind the cool nights, which can average low temperatures of 66.2°F (19°C), will appreciate the clement conditions.
The average high temperature is 80.6°F (27°C). This is still an extremely comfortable temperature for sunbathing, and tourists still may find pool terraces crowded with people.
The waters surrounding the island stay warm enough for aquatic activities all year long. The average sea temperature in October is still warm, somewhere between 71.6 and 75.2°F (22 and 24°C).There is an average of 0.28” (7 mm) of precipitation. There is an average of 16 days of precipitation annually. Although this is higher than the summertime months, tourists still have nothing to worry about. There might be a day or two of light sprinkles either in the morning or evening, but not enough rainfall to ruin an entire day. There is an average of 7 hours of sunlight.
Dates for the diary
Lanzarote hosts two worldwide competitions in October. The first is the World Tour Surfing Competition. This would be an excellent event to attend for those who are travelling with children.
The second event is the Music Marathon in Puerto del Carmen. Runners and spectators alike are entertained throughout this popular race with music from sporadically placed bands along the course. There is a huge party after the race as well.
Things to do
A popular autumn activity is wine touring and tasting. The two most popular wineries on the island are El Grifo and Stratvs, although there are smaller ones to be explored as well.
Get to know the work of Cesar Manrique, a native Lanzarote natural architect. One of his most-visited man-made landmarks is Mirador del Rio, which, in addition to its beautiful scenery, offers a bar and café for tourists to further enjoy the views.
Tourists in Lanzarote must sample the local food. There is no better place to do that than La Cabana in Tias. It is a bit inland, but it is completely worth the trip as it provides intimate dining experiences while patrons watch chefs cook right in front of them. The menu is small; however, everything is exceptionally cooked to order and not over-flavoured. In addition, the service has been highly rated by almost everyone who has visited.
Where to stay
Casa Arabella Parque del Rey is a resort in Playa Blanca that is privately owned, so much time and attention goes into making sure that visitors have the best possible experience. Photos really do not give an accurate picture of the resort, since it provides an ambiance and a feeling of peace that cannot be captured via photography. In addition, pets are allowed for those who can’t bear to leave their four-legged loved ones at home.
