What’s the weather like in Fuerteventura in June?
Fuerteventura’s just over 100km off the west coast of North Africa, so you’ll get high temperatures and no rain if you’re going in June. Although the Canaries are nicknamed the ‘Islands of Eternal Spring’, you’ll definitely feel like it’s summer if you’re going at this time.
You might think you’re in the Sahara Desert when hot winds and the occasional dust storm blow in, but you’ll usually be kept cool by north easterly trade winds and the Canary Current. Fuerteventura’s also got Lanzarote just to the north, which means it has warmer, drier and more consistent weather than other Canaries, which tend to be cooler and wetter in the north.
You’ll get an average high temperature of 26ºC in June and it stays nice and pleasant in the evenings. At 21ºC you’ll find the sea really inviting while humidity’s low. There isn’t usually any rain in June, so you can enjoy 14 dry hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. Take care in the sun though as UV levels will be extreme, so use plenty of sun cream. The sun won’t set until just before 9pm.
Things to Do
The weather’s perfect in June for you to relax on the beach and recharge your batteries. Popular ones include Costa Calma’s Playa Barca and the sand dunes of Parque Natural de Corralejo. Cool down in the ocean with an afternoon’s surfing, while diving and snorkelling are great. Take the kids to the Acua waterpark in Corralejo, and dry off at the park’s 18-hole mini-golf course.
