Fuerteventura in detail

When to go and weather

  • High season runs from December to February, with accommodation filling up well in advance; temperatures are slightly cooler with prevailing winds, but still very pleasant.
  • Late spring (April and May) is perfect temperature-wise, although Easter can mean crowded beaches.
  • Spanish holidaymakers favour the islands in July and August, along with families travelling with school-age children. Temperatures often surpass 30°C, though it rarely gets stiflingly hot. The Windsurfing World Cup takes place in July.
  • Autumn is an excellent time for festivals, including Corralejo's Kite Festival and the Fiesta de la Virgen del Rosario in the capital. Average daytime temperatures hover around the agreeable 20°C mark, while nights gradually become cooler.
