What’s the weather like in Fuerteventura in November?
The location of Fuerteventura, just over 100km off North Africa, means it has warm weather in November. It’s the closet of the Canary Islands to Africa, and you’ll get lots of sun with not much rain if you’re going on holiday there at this time.
The Sahara Desert is nearby, which can make things really hot when it sends hot winds over to Fuerteventura, along with the occasional dust storm. North east winds and the cooling Canary Current take the edge off the extreme temperatures though, and will keep you comfortable in November. Lanzarote’s just to the north of Fuerteventura, which shelters it from winds and rain, and give the island drier and more consistent weather than the other Canaries.
The average high temperature during November is 24ºC, which is warm enough for you to spend long days on the beach or by the pool. Things stay pleasant at night, so you shouldn’t need much more than a jumper for the evenings. The sea temperature’s a pleasant 21ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from just below 60% to a touch below 80%. Even though autumn’s turning into winter there’s still hardly any rain, with an average of just 13mm across three rainy days.
During November there are 11 hours of daylight and seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate so don’t forget to bring your sun cream, while sunset’s around 6pm in November.
Things to Do
The weather’s still great for chilling out on the beach in November, and there are some lovely ones to check out. Head to Costa Calma’s popular Playa Barca, Cofete’s quieter beaches and the Parque Natural de Corralejo with its sand dunes. Fuerteventura gets great swells so the surfing’s really good, while diving and snorkelling are also still popular at this time. The Acua waterpark near Corralejo’s great if you’re going with the kids, which also has an 18-hole mini golf course. If you want to stick to the sea then windsurfing’s great at the south coast’s Playa de Sotavento.
