Averages for Fuerteventura in April

Weather lowdown

April is the heart of spring and truly sees the advent of the high tourist season in the island of Fuerteventura. With 11 hours of daily sunshine on average there is plenty of time for fun under the sun during this month. Average daytime temperature rises up to 19 degrees Celsius, while the seawater temperature lags just one degree behind at 18 degrees. Throughout the month, temperatures never drop below 15 degrees (even at night) and rarely go above 22 degrees Celsius, ensuring perfect conditions for plenty of outdoor fun.

Historical weather data indicates that April is one of the most stable and predictable months in Fuerteventura weather-wise. The sky is almost always spotless and rainfall barely reaches a measly 10mm of total precipitation. Only two days of April are expected to see some rain but it comes mostly at night, and the island is dry again by the moment most tourists rise. Hot winds blowing from Africa keep Fuerteventura hotter than other resorts located at the same latitude, and can (albeit rarely) bring red sand from the desert.
