For many people in Europe, the Christmas season is associated with low temperatures and snow, so for those who are looking to escape the bad weather back home, Caleta de Fuste might be the perfect getaway.
Caleta de Fuste is the place to be if you're wanting a warm and sunny Christmas, in a relaxed and chilled atmosphere, while still feeling the holiday spirit.
Usually, at this time of year, the temperatures in Fuerteventura are still in the low twenties during the daytime, so it's still warm enough to wear T-shirts and flip-flops while you stroll through town. When the sun is shining the real feel temperature will be much higher and it's usually warm enough to spend your day on the beach and getting a tan.
On Christmas day in 2018, the maximum temperature in Caleta de Fuste was 23°C and the minimum temperature was 14°C.

Fun in the sun
If the weather is nice and sunny, spending Christmas day on the beach is always a good idea!
And with a beach as lovely as the one in Caleta, you could simply do some shopping the day before and bring a simple lunch and something festive to drink, while soaking up the warm sun of the Canaries. Afterward, you can go out for a proper Christmas dinner (minus the cold and the snow) if you wish at one of the many nice restaurants in Caleta.
