Weather Averages for Puerto del Carmen in August
Averages for Puerto del Carmen in August
Puerto del Carmen, Spain, may well be full of bars, restaurants, and luxury hotels, but its also one of the few places in Lanzarote, in fact, in the Canary Islands, that retains a large chunk of both it’s history and it’s old town Canarian charm. Strict planning and building restrictions in the town means there’s less faceless high rise apartments towers here, and more buildings, attractions, and scenery with personality.
In terms of weather, August is one of the nicest months of the year in Puerto del Carmen. The dry conditions continue throughout the month, although it’s usually the last opportunity to almost guarantee a dry holiday as rainfall makes a return in September, and rises quickly as the winter approaches. Temperatures max out this month, with pleasant heats of 23 degrees Celsius lasting well into the following month, and overnight temperatures that reach as high as 16 degrees.
If you’re travelling with children, a day out at the Rancho Texas Park is a must. Located just 2 miles, a 10 minute drive, north of the town centre, close to the golf course, this theme park is part zoo, with a huge variety of mammals, reptiles, and birds, part water park, with swimming pools and slides, and part social hangout, with restaurants and themed shows in the evenings, including a wild west show and a Spanish show. There is a dedicated bus service from Puerto del Carmen for easy access.
For those who want to stay healthy while on holiday in Lanzarote, check out the Blooming Cactus, a vegetarian and vegan cafe in Puerto del Carmen. The menu includes appetisers such as falafel, hummus, and lemon potatoes, while main courses include vegetable curries, salads, and soya mince chilli. Even meat eaters love this place, especially the range of homemade desserts and cakes.
With 80 apartments, Apartamentos Parque Tropical is one of the smallest accommodation complexes in the town, and is suited specifically to couples and families who are looking for a more relaxed and laid back holiday. All apartments come with a private balcony or terrace overlooking the gardens, the pool, or the ocean, and feature separate lounge, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen areas. The complex boasts two swimming pools and onsite restaurants and bars with both Spanish and international cuisine. Rooms cost from £39 per night.
