Weather in Fuerteventura


The days in the Canary Islands are long and sunny, with mild temperatures and few variations. The climate of Fuerteventura is a clear reflection of this: balmy and mild, with few oscillations, which makes it accessible 365 days a year.


Due to its orography, Fuerteventura is an island that hardly registers rainfall during the year. Nighttime temperatures on the island are usually cool in summer and comfortable in winter, allowing for restorative rest and enjoyable walks.


The trade winds (mainly from the north) offers optimal conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing, especially during the spring and summer months.
