By the time December is here, most European cities are busy organizing Christmas Markets where visitors come to drink hot mulled wine in order to warm up. This is when the climate of the Canary Islands starts to really differentiate itself from the rest of European destinations.
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.
After a heated summer season, you would think that the weather would start to cool down in Fuerteventura in September. But this is totally not the case.
October is one of the more quiet months in Fuerteventura, except for the time period when the children in the UK are on their autumn half-term holiday. At that time the island becomes busy again and prices for flights are considerably higher than during the rest of the month.
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.
June is when things start to get heated in Fuerteventura: it's still not as hot as it will be in July or August, but for those who are satisfied with temperatures just shy of 30°C during the day time, June will prove to be a good month to visit. In 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is highly unlikely that anyone will be able to travel to Fuerteventura for a June holiday since most flights are currently suspended until further notice.
By the time May gets to Fuerteventura, the weather is starting to really warm up and temperatures are really nice to enjoy long days on the beach or by the pool, with a beer or a cocktail in hand. Although temperatures don't go up like they do during the summer months, May is still a nice month to visit Fuerteventura, because the atmosphere is more relaxed and chilled, ideal for a quiet holiday meant to recharge your batteries.
In April the weather in Fuerteventura keeps improving and there's a constant rise in temperatures towards the end of the month. If you're planning your upcoming holiday to the island, you may be interested to know more about what temperatures to expect, rainfall, daylight hours, sunshine hours, UV index, and sea temperature.
If it's your first time planning a holiday on the island, you may be wondering...does it ever snow in Fuerteventura? And if yes, when and where exactly on the island?
Although even the winter season is warm in Fuerteventura, the month of March marks the beginning of spring, and so the weather can be sometimes tricky and moody (just like people are when they are going through some big changes).
Fuerteventura is one of the top choices for a sunny winter break if you're from the UK or from the rest of Europe. On most days you can sunbathe, maybe even swim, which is not possible anywhere else on the old continent.
If you're looking for a destination for a warm holiday during the cold winter season and you want a place that is only a short-haul flight away from Europe, Fuerteventura and the Canary Islands, in general, are your best bet.
We will say it right from the start: August is the hottest month of the year in Fuerteventura. But this probably comes as no surprise, as August is usually the hottest month of the year in most places in the Northern hemisphere.
The wind in Fuerteventura: a topic that never ends and a question that we hear often - how windy is it really?
