Why Lanzarote Is the Perfect Destination for Wind Sports

Though Lanzarote can be the perfect holiday destination for many reasons, one of the biggest perks is how fantastic it is for wind sports. We get great weather over here in Lanzarote, however it is a well known fact that it can be pretty windy sometimes. Especially down by the sea, although not to the point where anyone would consider pausing their sunbathing. Therefore, this makes Lanzarote ideal for wind sports, such as windsurfing, wakeboarding, surfing and paddleboarding etc. Because of this, the island tends to get a lot of visitors with the sole intention of perfecting these sports, and having time to enjoy them and try different things.

Being one of Lanzarotes popular attractions, we wanted to talk a little more about why it is the perfect destination for wind sports.

Are you looking for an activity based holiday?

Lanzarote has a lot to offer being one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Canary Isles. One of the reasons that it’s so popular, is because it caters to all kinds of different people, that are looking for different kinds of holidays. Some people go there to relax and wind down, enjoying the beautiful array of beaches, lovely weather and peaceful atmosphere, as well as chilling out around the pool, whereas others go for a bit more of an adventure seeking trip.

The island does not fall short in the way of things to do, and as we mentioned above, one of the more common activities to partake in over here are watersports and wind sports. Its warm but breezy weather entices people to get in the water and try some of the sporting options available, so when you’re not topping up the tan, you can try your hand at windsurfing or anything else that takes your fancy!

Are you a professional looking to perfect your sport?

It’s not just holidaymakers that flock to Lanzarote to join these activities. This Canary Island attracts tonnes of professionals and world champions in sports such as windsurfing and paddle boarding to perfect their skills and practice these sports in the ideal conditions. The constant but pleasant cool breeze provides great circumstances for these sports and makes the waves a great challenge and realistic setting to enjoy and seek improvement.

Furthermore, with there being several different beaches in Lanzarote, located in different areas, each one can provide a slightly different experience and can be better for different sports. For example, some areas are very calm and don’t have as much of a strong breeze, which is great for sports like paddle boarding. On the other hand, some beaches tend to receive stronger wind, resulting in the sea around that area being a bit more choppy. So for example, if surfing is your sport, hitting these big waves could be the perfect opportunity for you to get better and gain more experience in less calm conditions.

Each and every year, Lanzarote attracts more people that go to the island solely for the sports. No matter what you specialise in best, the fantastic sporting facilities and conditions provide the perfect experience and chance to compete against other professionals.
