Christmas in Fuerteventura is a unique experience, a mix of wonderful weather and mostly sunny days. And what's better than a sun tan in December?
If you decide to spend your winter holiday here, you are lucky because there is nothing better than Christmas on the beach!
With 3000 hours of sunshine per year, this means that you have a big chance of spending the holidays in flip flops with a cocktail in hand.
As you may well realize, things will be different in 2021, compared to other years.
Currently, Fuerteventura is placed at level 2 alert, so there are restrictions in place regarding the maximum capacity of restaurants and bars and also their closing time.
Even in this context, the atmosphere in Corralejo at the moment is more relaxed than in most other places in Europe, so if you're looking to recharge your batteries after a hard year, Fuerteventura might be the best place (and safest) during these times.
Each year there's a Christmas market organized in Corralejo.
In 2020, the market was held on December 19 and 20 and January 2 and 3 on Avenida Nuestra Señora del Carmen.
We will update this page when the details about the 2021 market in Corralejo will be announced.
How about Christmas dinner? What options do we have?
This is what most people are wondering when coming for the first time to Fuerteventura during the holidays.
There are some restaurants in Corralejo that serve a magnificent Christmas dinner, places where you will not be disappointed.
Below you can see some examples of menus from restaurants in Corralejo that serve Christmas dinner (it is recommended to book ahead of time).

Other places open on Christmas in Corralejo
The main reason why people choose to spend the holidays here is the nice weather.
The average temperature during the daytime in December is around 20 - 22 Celsius, so you can forget the heavy coats and put on some bathing suits.
Please remember that most supermarkets are closed on Christmas day, so you need to do your shopping ahead of time.
Fuerteventura is a great choice for a winter escape and Corralejo probably has the best atmosphere on the island during the holiday season.
