The weather in Haria and in Lanzarote is warm all year round. Although as it is located in the north of the island, you will find it a little cooler than the south! It is by far the least mountainous of the Canary Islands and has a great deal of flat land. Due to this it is below the level of warm air and humidity. Mostly this results to a dry climate and very little rain. The average temperature in the summer is 24 degrees Celsius and in the winter still only 17 degrees Celsius!
If an active holiday is what you were planning then there are lots of places for you to visit and things to do in Lanzarote! To get a real feel of Lanzarote you should make your way to some of the villages scattered over the island. You can do this by excursion's that you can book through any good tour operator or along the main high street in the tourist resorts,where you will find companies that run these excursions too. Of course there is another way and that is to hire a car giving you the freedom to explore this island at your own pace and in your own time.
In Haria there is plenty to see and do, including; Mirador del Rio, this tourist attraction was designed by the infamous Cesar Manrique, the modern eagle's eyrie offers breathtaking panoramic views over the neighboring island of La Graciosa. Moving slightly further to the south on the east coast, there is Los Jameos del Agua. This is situated inland. Here Manrique created a nightclub, bar / restaurant and underground auditorium in a system of volcanic caves. The narrow volcanic tubes connect a seawater lagoon in the central cave to the Atlantic Ocean so that you can notice the high and low tides. The crystal clear waters of the lagoon are home to the tiny blind albino crab that can only be found in the island of Lanzarote. Adjacent to Los Jameos del Agua is Casa de los Volcanes. Here you can learn about the nature of volcanic activity, the eruptions that have occurred on the Canary Islands and the other active volcanoes that are situated throughout the world. Opposite from Los Jameos del Agua are the Cueva de los Verdes - Green Caves. Similar to its neighbour to the east it is part of a system of caves that begins at the 609m high volcano - Monte Corona - and ends 7km away, 50m below the oceans surface. The caves are an attraction that is not to be missed and a tour of the caves are possible if accompanied by a guide that is familiar with the vast labyrinth of the caves.
If you fancy just relaxing at the beach, in the north around the fishing towns of Arrieta and Orzola there are lovely beaches. These beaches do lack the facilities that are offered by the beaches in the main resorts, but if peace and tranquility is what you desire, and to get away from the usual tourist hype, then these beaches are worth a visit. However, Swimming here is limited due to the low tide as the sea behind a natural rock barrier is usually too rough to be safe even to the strongest swimmer. In Playa de Famara, a vast expanse of golden sand with the Famara cliffs offering a stunning backdrop. Due to the strong undertow and the crashing waves a red flag usually flies at this beach; the only people going into this water is the experienced surfers.
Nightlife in Haria and the surronding villages is very traditional, there is lots of culture, where you will find many restaurants where you can just sit in peace and watch the world go by along the seafront and promenade, or maybe the wonderful town square - where you will feel that true Spanish way of life! There are many local bars and restuarants serving local food and drink, if you are wanting to party hard then close by in the islands capital, Arrecife - along Jose Antonio Street in the centre is one of the main places to go, for the non-tourist oriented places and to get a taste of real Spanish nightlife! If you want a more tourist nightlife then you will have to travel a little further to Puerto del Carmen the popular English tourist resort here you will find many bars, restaurants and disco's that will take you dancing away till the early hours!
There is a few places to stay here from private villas, apartments and hotels - that range from basic, somewhere to lay your head to really luxurious! They range in size from studio's or one bedroom apartments if there are just the two of you to three bedroom - normally sleeping up 8 if your taking the family or going in a big group.
There also the private rentals, people that have bought the property for holiday homes and when they are not there rent out for your exclusive use! These are lovely, normally set in privately owned complexes, where people live! Most come with communal swimming pools too, and these are normally quieter due to this. A word of warning though these are quieter and normally better for families or older groups than the young tourists!!!
