November is pretty much a transition month - the weather is transitioning towards the winter season, which means that the temperatures will drop a bit and the wind will make its presence felt more than in the previous month.

November is not as busy as the summer months; it's actually one of the more quiet months in Fuerteventura since most people will wait to visit in December during the winter holidays.

Compared to October, the average temperature drops by about 2°C, but during the daytime, you can still expect temperatures of about 23-24°C, which will feel pretty warm when the sun is out.

The wind starts to pick up strength in November, which is why this is the perfect time of the year for the Kite Festival, which takes place on the beautiful Corralejo dunes in the north of the island.
