4 Reasons to Soak Up the Late Summer Sun in Lanzarote

Posted on 28 September 2018

Better late than never, as the saying goes. This ancient maxim is relevant to taking a late summer sun-seeking holiday, but in some cases, a late summer holiday is actually much better than one at peak season.
Allow us to list some reasons why...
A more relaxed vibe
Peak holiday season has passed, and therefore there’s going to be fewer of your fellow tourists around, which means that you’ll have a more relaxing break. Out-of-the-way beaches such as Costa Papagayo will evoke even more of an escapist vibe with fewer people around, while beachside strolls in Playa Blanca will be blissfully unhurried.
Lanzarote is already incredibly relaxing at any time of year, but think of late summer as an especially blissed-out period of time to be on this glorious volcanic isle.
The weather
The Lanzarote weather is famed worldwide for its consistency. You can be near-guaranteed some cloudless skies and pleasant warmth at some point during your stay, thanks to the isle’s proximity to the Sahara Desert, which radiates hot, dry air.
Combine this with crisp Atlantic breezes and you have a pleasant temperature that hangs around the 25-degree mark for late summer and early autumn. If you’re sensing the nights drawing in at home and are yearning for a break, then this type of guaranteed temperature is sure to whet your appetite for all things Lanzaroteño.
Hike to your heart’s content
The pleasant temperatures and comparative lack of tourists mean that you’ll be able to hike the heights of the Timanfaya National Park to your heart’s content and feel the eerie otherworldliness of the landscape with the minimum of heat-related stress.
Lanzarote in October offers a perfect chance to see the island from a unique perspective - whether it’s Timanfaya, a hike up to the Mirador del Rio or the Park of the Volcanoes, you’ll be spellbound by the landscape.
An easier hiking option if you’re staying in one of our villas in Playa Blanca is to conquer the local Montana Roja, which offers superb views over the strait to Fuerteventura.
Catch a local event
Cultural events in Lanzarote aren’t limited to the high summertime. October’s events calendar throws up some intriguing festivals and goings-on that aren’t geared towards your average tourist. The 15th edition of the Visual Music Festival of Lanzarote is set to take place between the 6th and 20th of October this year and will feature classical and contemporary musicians from around the world performing alongside visually appealing performances and light shows.
Venues for this year's event include the Manrique designed Jameos del Agua cave system, so you can be certain of an awe-inspiring sensory overload when you attend any of the events scheduled for October.
In terms of sporting events, the football season is back on in Spain and local side UD Lanzarote are in action all through autumn and beyond. Catch a match at their Ciudad Deportiva De Lanzarote stadium for an authentic slice of local life - although you might find a few other British ‘groundhoppers’ in the crowd!
