Water Sports in Lanzarote
The warm waters surrounding Lanzarote have great conditions for all types of water sports, which can be enjoyed from January to December with the average water temperatures rarely going below 19ºC (66ºF).
The south coast is especially inviting for swimming, diving, snorkelling or boat excursions, including big game fishing and whale and dolphin watching tours. In contrast, the north coast with its rougher conditions provides an ideal playground for windsurfing, surfing, sailing and alike. Do not underestimate the strength of prevailing winds that are usually at their strongest on summer afternoons and always watch out for undercurrents and strong waves.
Sailing along Lanzarote’s shores, where the trade winds provide ideal conditions, is also a very popular pastime for everyone.
Lanzarote is a paradise for windsurfing! Whether you are an expert or complete beginner, all the way along the coastline there are schools and centres that teach this exciting sport.
Some people say that the Lanzarote surf is so good it is ranked almost as highly as Hawaii! It definitely enjoys some of the biggest and best waves in all of Europe, especially off the northern and north-eastern shores – both recommended only for experienced surfers.
