Fuerteventura Weather and Climate

's climate broadly reflects that of the other Canary Islands. The climate is that of eternal spring: temperatures in Fuerteventura are very mild and tend to remain between 18 and 25 degrees throughout the year (the average minimum in December is 15°C at night). The only exception is represented by the Calima, a hot wind that blows periodically from Africa, which can raise the temperature by several degrees. This hot wind often reduces visibility, as it carries dust and sand with it from the nearby Sahara desert. The anomalous heat is felt above all in the internal areas of the island and generally lasts a couple of days.

The ocean waters, on the other hand, are mitigated by the influence of the current from the Gulf of Mexico and always remain around 20°C (from 19°C in January to 23°C in September).
Fuerteventura is a very windy island as it is constantly exposed to the trade winds, winds that blow throughout the year, especially in the afternoon.
This makes Fuerteventura an island much appreciated by lovers of water sports, such as windsurfing and kitesurfing, and attracts thousands of surfers from all over Europe every year. The good ventilation of the island means that humidity is very low, both in summer and in winter, and the climate is dry and not muggy. However, the sun shines all year round (especially from May to September) and there are few cloudy days.

When to go to Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the ideal destination for beach tourism and surfing, and thanks to its breezy climate, never too hot or too cold, it can be visited all year round.
However, the best period is from May to mid-October. However, due to the low rainfall, the island lends itself to water sports even until early December, when the sea is still warm enough. In the winter months, Atlantic perturbations can bring some cloudiness and some rain, even if in a moderate amount. Perturbations can lead to the formation of rogue waves which are very popular with surfers (surf championships are held periodically in El Cotillo). On the island it is always good and is chosen by many northern Europeans as a destination for wintering during the winter months. Even in January it is possible to sunbathe on the beach and, for the more courageous, even take a dip in the ocean.
