The climate in the Canary Islands is influenced by the trade wind belt, a factor that directly affects the propensity for flat formations on the island of Fuerteventura. The scarcity of mountains on the island promotes the passage of trade wind currents and low rainfall during the four seasons.
Its climatic average is approximately 27ºC in summer and 20ºC in winter so, compared to other areas of the Iberian Peninsula, the island of Fuerteventura has one of the most favourable climatic averages in Spain.
Thanks to this climatic factor, Fuerteventura enjoys a warm temperature with fresh air throughout the year. For this reason, many tourists and residents consider the island as one of the best destinations for water activities such as windsurfing. However, the best months for windsurfing and kitesurfing, according to experts, are May and August, when the breeze and waves are much more favourable.
There are other determining factors, besides the average weather, that can help you decide which is the best time to travel to Fuerteventura such as: the influx of tourists and the availability of plane or ferry tickets.
During the first months of the year, the influx of tourists is considered average with certain peaks for the Carnival and Easter bridges, especially if we compare these months with the previous dates in which Christmas and New Year’s Eve are celebrated. For this reason, the availability of airline and ferry tickets to Fuerteventura rises significantly and you will not find so many tourists.
Its average temperature ranges between a maximum of 24 ºC and a minimum of 14 ºC. A very mild climate, so you can comfortably enjoy everything the island has to offer.
With a temperature ranging between 28 ºC and 16 ºC, these months include the beginning of spring and ends with the last day of summer, so it includes the warmest months and with greater influx of tourists in Fuerteventura (July and August).
