July is a good month to visit Fuerteventura if you're interested in 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 the 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 holidays 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, reaching values 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 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. Of course, this can vary from one person to another, but we usually go swimming even in winter, so in summer the sea temperature is just right for us.
