Fuerteventura Climate & Weather
Fuerteventura Climate and Weather
Fuerteventura has a glorious climate all year with temperatures rarely dropping below 63°F (17°C) and often rising above 82°F (28°C) during the day. Gentle sea breezes keep the island from being too hot and extreme temperatures are rare. During the winter months, December to February, the average temperatures range between 59°F (15°C) and 72°F (22°C); and in the peak summer months, June to August, the average temperatures range between 68°F (20°C) and 82°F (28°C). Rainfall in the summer months is almost non-existent, but showers are possible between October and April. Fuerteventura has a dry climate but most of the rain falls in autumn and winter. Over the winter months travellers will need a sweater and light trousers for evenings and possibly the odd rare cloudy day. Any other time of year visitors will only need the bare essentials such as shorts and T-shirts. Occasionally, sand-laden winds blow across Fuerteventura from the Sahara and can cause a rise in temperature and poor visibility.
The best and most popular time to visit Fuerteventura is between May and September, but the mild climate makes the island a wonderful holiday destination all year.
