Weather and things to do ?

Asked by: 6th July 2012 ,

I’m heading out to Costa Teguise a week today (Thursday 12th July) and wondered what the weather is like at the moment so i know what to pack. On the webcam’s it looks a bit chilly? Is it hot enough to sunbathe and so i need jumpers etc?

Also, if anyone can recommend any events going on starting 12th July or any restaurants etc that will be great. LOVE tapas if there are any good tapas or fish restaurants etc.

    I’m going on the 15th & have been a bit disheartened by the webcam but at least I won’t be at work!
    Tapas bars I like are Repikada, opposite Celeste Apartments and the one behind Casa Blanca but I’ve forgotten its name sorry.
    There’s a great fish restaurant in the corner of Pueblo Marinera but I can’t remeber what that’s called either and I’ve been there loads of times – I don’t think its name has ever registered in my brain.
    Most of the restaurants are pretty good but I would steer clear of Casa Blanca – overpriced and nowhere near as good as it thinks it is.
    Have a lovely holiday, hope the sun comes out for us!

    Becky, don’t bother packing anything too warm . Pack plenty of bikinis and suntan lotion current daytime max 30 degrees centigrade and minimum overnight temperature 20 degrees
    Do use plenty of. Lotion even if it is cloudy or you will burn. The sun WILL come out have no fear. Have a lovely holiday.

    To be honest Ken i prefer to go off the live web cam on this site as its actual, and as they say what cant speak cant lie but as you say they match now so thats what everyone wants, will have a look at the PDC web cam thanks

    Lanzarote is a very strange island when it comes to clouds/weather.

    – 99,9% times even darker clouds will never bring rain.

    – some areas of the island can be stuck with clouds because of the Famara cliff for example, or wind orientation, but the rest of the island is under beautiful sun.

    so dont focus too much on live weather station, its not they are wrong, its just they’re made with data from a specific location, mostly Arrecife airport.

    If you want to see actual weather in Playa Blanca, Puerto Del Carmen or Costa Teguise, check the links on this site (http://www.secretlanzarote.com/webcam.html).

    I have found the weather to vary a fair bit when travelling round the island on my last visit to PB the clouds seem to stay well into the afternoon each day yet whenever we drove over to Matagorda they had clear blue sky

    Hi Becky. Dont panic!

    If its cloudy in the morning ( which is not unusual in CT) the sunshine soon burns through. Im sure you will have lots of sunshine so be sure to pack the sun cream. 🙂
