Lanzarote is an island in the Canary Islands archipelago (Spain), in the Atlantic Ocean, facing the coasts of the south of Morocco. It belongs to the province of Las Palmas. Its capital is Arrecife.
Lanzarote is the southernmost and westernmost island of the Canary Islands archipelago. It is popularly known as "the island of the volcanoes", thanks to the volcanic mantle that runs along most of the island as a result of the great volcanic activity of the beginning of the 18th Century.
Lanzarote has a very dry and damp climate. Night-time temperatures rarely drop below 13oC in winter and 20oC in summer. Its average annual temperature is 22oC and there are no extreme temperatures. These temperatures are conducive to an exceptional climate thanks to geographical location and the influence of the sea.
