Weather in Corralejo
With seven miles of sandy beaches, Corralejo has a desirable Mediterranean climate with beautiful weather all year round. The waters around the resort are clear and blue, but strong winds and currents can make them choppy at times. The beaches closer to town have volcanic rock shorelines and are sheltered from the strong currents.
The largest holiday resort on the island of Fuerteventura, a part of Spain, Corralejo maintains its charm as a traditional fishing village, while still welcoming visitors to enjoy its beautiful landscape. The resort offers a waterfront promenade with cafes, restaurants and stores and regular ferry service connects Corralejo to Lanzarote.
Summer is peak tourist season in the resort with many travelling to the town to enjoy its beautiful sandy shores and clear blue skies. In the summer months, the average temperature is between 21°C and 24°C (between 70°F to 75°F), warm but not too hot to feel uncomfortable. It can be humid during August, however there is no rain or drizzle and you can expect a dry month with some wind. During the summer months of June, July and August the average rainfall during that time is 0mm. It's perfect weather for taking part in a water sport like surfing or even diving to explore the local marine life. The water also feels great too, with an average sea temperature of 21°C to 22°C (between 70°F to 72°F), great for cooling off from the warm summer sun.
While summer is very warm, you might want to visit the Corralejo during September and October when the weather is still pleasant and it's starting to become quieter. Prices also start to fall but all attractions are still open for you to enjoy. The sea temperature stays warm all year round, so if you want to head to the beach and swim in the sea, it's ideal. The evenings are still very pleasant which allows you to visit one of the many restaurants, bars and pubs in town and take in the sights. The months of autumn still provide warm weather, generally much better than in the UK. The average temperature during the autumn months is between 20°C and 24°C (about 68°F to 75°F). In the autumn, there is slightly more chance of rain or clouds than during summer, especially come November, which has an average rainfall of 13mm. During September, the sea temperature is the highest it will reach all year, averaging 23°C (about 73°F).
The winter months do bring milder weather to Corralejo and the Canary Islands of Spain, so it's best to pack extra clothing like a light jacket during this time. Even during winter, low temperatures are still in the mid-teens so for those travelling from the UK, it will never feel completely chilly. Come winter, the average temperature drops between 17°C and 19°C (around 63°F to 66°F), but for those travelling from the UK, it will never feel completely chilly. The winter is wet compared to the rest of the seasons, with an average of 26mm of rainfall in December and 14mm and 16mm in January and February, respectively. The average sea temperatures during December, January and February range between 19°C and 21°C (between 66°F and 70°F), still pleasantly warm.
In the spring, the temperatures improve quickly, ranging between an average of 18°C and 20°C (about 64°F to 68°F) for March through May. The tourist season starts ramping up at the end of the spring season. The early spring months might be a good time to visit to avoid crowds and still experience good weather. March has an average of 12mm of rainfall and then the rainfall drops off significantly, with 5mm in April and only 1mm in May, on average. You can still experience a pleasurable hike, a fun visit to the water park or travel across the island to see what else Fuerteventura has to offer tourists. The water is still warm during the spring months, averaging between 19°C and 20°C (between 66°F and 68°F).
Since Corralejo lies on the island of Fuerteventura, it has the same weather hazards the rest of the island has, specifically the dust storms that can blow up. Because Corralejo lies across the bay from the western edge of the Sahara Desert, it often is in the path of these dust storms. The storms generally occur between February and March and last two to four days. More of an inconvenience than a danger, they can still wreak havoc on your visit if one occurs while you're in the area.
