Right now we are in Lanzarote, after a gray Swedish winter we needed some sun and heat.
We stay in Playa Blanca, the southernmost part of the island, which fortunately is also the least windy area.
From here we see the neighboring island of Fuerteventura, which as its name indicates, is constantly beaten by a strong wind.
March is the month in which we officially go from winter to spring and temperatures rise steadily as the days go by. It is very hot during the day, but the evenings are quite cool. You are fine with long trousers and a spring jacket.
The landscape is very similar to some areas of Gran Canaria, barren and arid. Also because of the volcanic activity present on the island.
There is even a restaurant, in the Timanfaya National Park, where they cook on the grill using the heat coming from the underlying volcanic calderas. We will try it!
The feeling is that Lanzarote is a bit like Gran Canaria’s little sister: it is not so touristy and the hotel complexes are not so impressive. This is partly due to a well-known artist from the island, the architect César Marques, who worked here to create a sustainable and non-invasive architecture.
The cheapest flights can be found with Skyscanner, while for accommodation Booking.com offers the best solutions. Also during this stay, we rented a car with RentalCars.com to drive around almost the whole island.
