Climate/ Clothing

With its average temperatures fluctuating between 18 and 25 degrees, the island offers a pleasant climate all year round. You enjoy more than 3000 sun hours per year. The climate of the island is influenced by the trade winds, the location, the flat landscape and the currents of the sea. Compared to Gran Canaria or Tenerife, Fuerteventura has no big mountains. That’s why clouds just pass the island without any rain. Thus, light cotton clothing is the best choice. During spring and autumn pullover and jacket are recommended for the cooler evenings.
