Averages for Fuerteventura in July
In the heart of summer, July is enchanting in Fuerteventura and weather conditions couldn’t be better during this month. The sun shines for an astounding 14 hours each day, making Fuerteventura one of the sunniest subtropical locations in the world for this month and enticing countless tourists to enjoy the island’s pristine nature in all kinds of outdoors activities. The island is packing with tourists during July because daytime average temperatures float around the ideal 24 degree Celsius mark with sea temperatures actually being higher by one degree at 25. This means that waters around the island are actually warmer than the island itself, allowing tourists to spend limitless time swimming and playing on the island’s numerous beaches.
July is the hottest month of the year on Fuerteventura but temperatures never get too hot though, with average high temperatures rarely going above 27 degrees and average lows never reaching below 20 degrees. There is hardly any rainfall during the month of July, and historical data indicates that we should expect a maximum of just 10mm of total precipitation every two to three years during this month. The sky is virtually cloudless throughout the month but strong winds are a frequent phenomenon. These winds coming from the south are known as ‘scirocco’ and can bring warm sand from the Sahara desert. The scirocco are known to infrequently pelt the southern beaches of the island.
Scuba diving is very popular in Fuerteventura. As the island has been formed due to volcanic actions, there are numerous spectacular diving spots to be explored. There are numerous diving opportunities for scuba divers of all skill levels and several reputable operators offer their services in the form of training, equipment and scuba diving excursions. Diving is strictly controlled for safety reasons and all tourists should sign up with one of the local licensed dive centres.
Water skiing is another popular pastime in Fuerteventura, as is jet skiing, banana boats and wakeboarding. From the three, banana boat rides are the most affordable but tourists can find cheap jet ski deals if they are willing to haggle with locals. The skis are often rented by the hour and you can only use them on the beach you rented them from.
