In April the weather keeps improving and there's a constant rise in temperatures towards the end on the month.
Chances of rain are lower than in the previous month, so you can expect lots of sunny days where you can enjoy some early summer temperatures, which sometimes go over 25°C during the daytime. Some weeks in April can be quite busy in Fuerteventura, especially during Holy Week (when Holy Weeks happens to fall into April like it does in 2019) but also throughout the entirety of the school holiday in April. During these weeks the prices for flights and accommodation are highly inflated and you should book in advance if you want to get a good deal.
Weather in Fuerteventura in April
Although April is already spring time and the temperatures are on the rise on the European continent, the Canaries are still one of the best destinations at this time of year. Here you'll be able to sunbathe and go home with a tan, while in most other places in Europe you'll still need a jacket even during the daytime.
Fuerteventura in April is not too hot (for those who run away from temperatures over 30 °C) and with slim chances of rain, you'll be able to combine sunbathing with visiting the island, since you won't have to hide away somewhere inside during the hot afternoon sun.

Things To Do in Fuerteventura during the month of April
April is a month for family holidays in Fuerteventura, due to the school holiday, so our recommendations are for things that you can do along with the children, keeping the whole family entertained.
Go to Oasis Park
Located towards the southern part of Fuertevetura, in La Lajita, Oasis Park is a zoo set up on a vast piece of land, so it will keep you busy for the entire day. There are some shows that you can see when you visit the park, so you can sit down to take a break from walking. We've eaten lunch at the park when visiting, and the food was ok (nothing to write home about) and at decent prices (there are several restaurants in the park). There's also a huge cactus garden, so there's a bit of a botanical garden as well mixed with the animal park.
Learn how to fly a kite
This is something the kids love and you can spend the day together trying to learn how to fly it. There's enough room on the beaches in Fuerteventura to do your thing without bothering anyone and it's a nice way for parents to spend time with the little ones.
