The Worlds Best Surf - Lanzarote


Lanzarote is part of the Canary Islands and is situated off the northwestern coast of Africa. Lanzarote is more about consistent surf than huge swells, although famous spots like La Santa can get quite big. Comfortable water temperatures also contribute to this destination's popularity among surfers.

"The Canaries can justly lay claim to being the Hawaii of the Atlantic, and top surf spots are found all around Lanzarote. Prime season is winter, from November to late March, when waves commonly reach heights ranging from 1.5-4.5 m and hardly drop below head-high. The highly indented coastline on the NE, N and W coasts of the island offers a variety of breaks ranging in difficulty, so whether you're an experienced surfer or a beginner you can find your dream spot here."
