Fuerteventura is a great destination for water sports 

By the time July is here, Fuerteventura goes into full summer mode.

July and August are the hottest months in Fuerteventura, so if you're wanting a really warm holiday in the sun, these are best months to visit. It's a good thing the trade winds make their presence felt, as otherwise it would simply be unbearably hot during the afternoon.

July is also one of the busiest months in Fuerteventura, since the children are on summer holiday all over Europe and it's the perfect time for family holidays. This also means that prices go up for July and August, as well as for any other time of the year when there's a school holiday.

Weather in Fuerteventura in July

Fuerteventura enjoys a mild climate all year round, which means that even in winter you will get temperatures of around 20°C during the daytime. But July is when temperatures start to go really crazy, nearing around the 30°C mark almost every day, especially during the second half of the month.

Although 30°C might not seem like a lot to you when it comes to summer temperatures, the sun feels much hotter in Fuerteventura and in the Canary Islands in general, due to their position, so always make sure to use a sun lotion with a high SPF factor (SPF 50 preferably during the summer months, when the UV index is really high).

Summer in Fuerteventura is the time when you get to enjoy the beaches at their best, plus you also get to swim comfortably, without needing a heated pool.

Temperatures in Fuerteventura in July

Things To Do in Fuerteventura in July

Since it's July, it's all about beach holidays, enjoying the sun and recharging batteries. Families head over with the children for a fun holiday and since the weather is guaranteed to be dry and hot, you should take advantage and spend as much time out as possible, exploring every corner of the island.

The water park in Corralejo

For a fun family day, you can head over to the island' only water park, the one in Corralejo, Although is not as great as the famous Siam Park (and definitely not in the top best water parks in Spain), it can be entertaining for the kids during a really hot day. It can get pretty expensive for the whole family with entrance tickets and food, but sometimes the price gets lowered if you get in after 2 PM, so you should ask around and see if that is still the case.

A walk through Puerto del Rosario

Puerto del Rosario might not be your top choice of how to spend a day from your holiday in Fuerteventura, but the island's capital has changes a lot in the past few years. In winter big ships come over and bring thousands of visitors per day, but in summer there are no cruises in the Canaries. Puerto del Rosario also has now a nice large beach, popular with locals and in July it can prove to be a good spot to enjoy the sun and the sea.
