Guide for your holidays in Fuerteventura this 2020


The Canary Islands is one of the best destinations to travel to at any time of the year. However, the most west-facing islands (Tenerife, La Palma and Gran Canaria) experience rains, something that does not happen in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. In these two islands the sun stays throughout the year and this makes them the ideal islands to visit at any time of the year. But, you still don’t know when to prepare your trip to Fuerteventura? We give you the keys to make up your mind and choose the best time for you.

Travel to Fuerteventura in winter

Winter is perhaps the best time to visit Fuerteventura and enjoy your holidays in 2020. The temperature continues to be warm but most importantly, you will be alone on many of the beaches and you will be able to enjoy the activities that Fuerteventura offers as the influx of Tourism during the winter months is less.

However, the leisure offer is completely the same, and you can have a different view of the island because the passers-by you see are probably the majoreros who live on the island.

What can you do in winter?

  • Fuerteventura’s main attraction is its beaches and the temperatures invite you to take a walk and even take a bath. However, the bravest are the ones who dare since the water is quite cold and staying in the water for a while is not suitable for everyone.
  • Visit their villages. Fuerteventura has many towns, very charming. In the north, we recommend El Cotillo, Corralejo or Lajares. Puerto del Rosario, capital of the island of Fuerteventura, is a must-see. Nearby you can visit Betancuria, the least populated town, but it does not have less charm, it was the old capital of the island and has a great history. And in the southern area we recommend: Gran Tarajal, Ajui, Costa Calma or Morro Jable.
  • Do hiking trails. Winter is the best time to do hiking trails both on foot and by bike. The warm but not very high temperatures allow you to hike without suffering on the way due to the heat and the sun.
  • If you visit the island between October and December, dare to surf, since it is the time that professionals recommend to go into the water and ride the waves of the Atlantic.

What do I have to know before I go?

  • The average temperature in the winter months is 20ºC maximum and 14ºC minimum.
  • Between November and January it rains about 7 days a month, with December being the month in which it rains the most.
  • Wear light clothing. During the day you can go with long pants and a short-sleeved shirt, but at night the temperatures drop and a sweater or something (fine) coat will not be left over.

Travel to Fuerteventura in spring

Did you know that Fuerteventura is called “the island of eternal spring”? In this season, temperatures rise but we can still participate and carry out the different activities that the island offers without fear of crowds. In addition, winds are moderate so sightseeing is more bearable.

What can you do in spring?

  • Set an excursion to Isla de Lobos. The good weather and temperature will allow you to enjoy it as if it were summer, but with the advantage that there will be half the tourists.
  • Make a stop to rest at the Mirador las Peñitas located in Betancuria. Breathing fresh air while the sun’s rays hit your body is one of the best sensations.
  • Alternate the visit to the beaches with the visit to important monuments and buildings during your holidays in Fuerteventura.
  • Take one of the Verdeaurora Bio Farm experiences. Through the Bio Farm Experience you will delve a little deeper into the culture and customs of the people.

What do I have to know before I go?

  • The average temperature in the spring months (April and May) is 25ºC maximum and 15ºC minimum.
  • The water temperature is 19ºC so you can cool off and enjoy the island’s beaches.
  • Wear summer clothes since the temperatures are high during the day, however, put long pants and a fine sweater in the suitcase since at night you will need to put it on to enjoy the majorera night.

Travel to Fuerteventura in summer

In summer you will find the crowded island of tourists from Germany and Britain for the most part. But if you have chosen the Canary Island to spend your summer holidays we are going to make these days unforgettable and want to repeat.

What can you do in summer?

  • Surely you have chosen Fuerteventura for its beaches and it is no wonder. In summer we usually look for beach and sun holidays and Fuerteventura is one of the best destinations. Surrounded by sea on its four sides you can search and find the beaches that you like the most, the ones that are closest to your preferences and even your perfect beach.
  • Go surfing. Summer and Fuerteventura are synonymous with surfing, you cannot leave the island without climbing on a board and having ridden a few waves. On the promenades of the beaches you will find numerous surf schools with levels for everyone.
  • Rest from a long day at the beach at Casa Aurora. But first, stop by a supermarket and fill your cart with typical island products. Prepare a dinner under the sky of Fuerteventura, Starlight Reserve.
  • Visit the end of Fuerteventura, Punta de Jandía, and enjoy the sunset at its lighthouse.


What do I have to know before I go?

  • The average temperature in the summer months (June, July and August) is 29ºC maximum and 19ºC minimum.
  • The wind that blows from Africa make the temperatures softer.
  • Wear summer clothes. Don’t forget your swimsuits and bikinis! You won’t take them off on every vacation. We recommend that you pack a fine knit jacket or sweater for the nights. You never know if it will be necessary.
