    Fuerteventura is the second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands. Located off the north cost of Africa, its climate is very mild, with sunny summers and very mild spring-like winters. The temperature ranges from about 21 °C in January to 28 °C between July and September, which is why Fuerteventura holidays are a great choice no matter what time of year. Being an island, it boasts glorious white-sand beaches, surrounded by cliffs and coves. It’s a popular destination for all manner of water sports, particularly surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, as the island gets its fair share of strong winds from time to time. The wind is the strongest in June and July, which is why Fuerteventura is the host for the World Windsurfing Championship. The interior landscape tells a different story, it’s barren, with large plains, lavascapes and volcanic mountains. Fuerteventura was declared a Biosphere Reserve and Starlight Reserve by UNESCO.
    There is something for everyone – mellow surfers, families, couples, people looking for a less active but still relaxing break in the sun. The cuisine of the island is rather basic due to the customs and climate conditions. Some of the more popular choices include papas arrugadas, a dish of wrinkled potatoes usually served with mojo, a hot pepper sauce or with puchero canario, a meat stew.

    When to go

    Fuerteventura, otherwise called the “island of eternal spring”, is an all year-round holiday destination. It is pleasantly warm; the weather is very balanced and so tourists visit the island all year round. It’s also very dry. A little rain is to be expected in the winter months, but even when it does rain it’s only a short shower. Out of all the spring months, March gets the rainiest days. The water temperatures are between 19 °C to 23 °C. If you are wondering when is best to come, this depends on your expectations and what you plan to do while on holiday in Fuerteventura.
