What's the weather like in Fuerteventura in July

Temperature

Along with August, July is one of the hottest months of the year in FuerteventuraCanary Islands, when the summer season sees thousands of tourists from across Europe flock to the island. At this time of year, the average temperature for Fuerteventura is 24°C, created by average highs of 27°C in the middle of the day and 21°C after dark.

If you're not a fan of high temperatures and would rather visit Fuerteventura at a cooler time, consider visiting in May or October, when the temperatures are much more bearable and the island is less crowded.

Daily Temperatures

During this month, daily averages slowly increase as the month progresses. Averages start off at 24°C and begin to fluctuate between 24°C and 25°C by July 17th. By the end of the month, daily average temperatures jump up to 26°C. This makes the final week of July the best time to visit Fuerteventura if you want to visit when it's hottest.

Extreme Temperatures

The highest temperature ever recorded in Fuerteventura in July is 43°C, which was registered on July 20th 1975 at Fuerteventura Airport. The lowest temperature ever recorded at this point during July is 14°C, which was registered on July 3rd 1975. This makes July 1975 a remarkable month when it comes to extreme weather!

Weather Warnings

Calimas can affect Fuerteventura at any time of year, but they're particularly unpleasant when they occur in summer, such as in July. Whilst the trade winds usually blow over the Canary Islands in a north easterly direction, a calima occurs when they blow in from the east, across the Sahara Desert. When the winds blow in from Africa, they bring with them thick clouds of sand and dirt which hang around in the air and cause low visibility, a spike in temperature and discomfort for anyone with breathing difficulties.

Rainfall

In July, the probability of precipitation occurring hardly changes at all as the month develops, only slightly increasing from 2.8% on July 1st to 2.9% by July 30th. July 22nd is the most likely day to see rainfall, when it occurs on 3% of days. At this time of year, the island receives an average of 0mm of precipitation, making it one of the best months to go if you want to avoid rainfall during your holiday in Fuerteventura. In the off chance you're very unlucky and do get some sort of precipitation during your holiday, it will most probably be moderate rain (which happens on 44% of days with rainfall), drizzle (26%) or light rain (20%).

The highest monthly precipitation ever recorded in Fuerteventura in July is 0.6mm, which was registered at Fuerteventura Airport in July 1990 – testament to how little rainfall the island is subject to at this time of year. The 25th day of that month was declared the wettest July day ever, when the whole 0.6mm of rainfall fell on a single day. However, July 2011 had the largest number of wet days ever recorded in any July – three.

Throughout the year, Fuerteventura is subject to less rainfall than any of the other Canary Islands. This is because Fuerteventura's terrain is significantly flatter than that of any of the other islands. When the trade winds hit the other Canaries, they're forced over the tops of mountains, which causes them to cool down and form rainclouds which are unable to hold the rain drops at a cooler temperature. Because there are no high mountains in Fuerteventura, the winds never have to rise and cool down, which means the clouds don't cause rain, because they can hold a lot more rainwater at a warmer temperature.

Average Sunshine Hours

Across July, Fuerteventura enjoys an average of ten hours of sunshine every day, along with median cloud coverage which slightly falls as the month progresses. Median cloud coverage starts off at 35% on July 1st and drops down to 30% by July 31st. On an average day, the sky is clear/mostly clear 36% of the time, partly cloudy 10% and mostly cloudy/overcast 9%.

Thanks to the geographical location of Fuerteventura, the sea around the island is always warm enough for swimming in, whichever month you visit. The average sea temperature for the island's waters is 21°C in July – that's the same as in June.

Humidity

The relative humidity for Fuerteventura in July averages at around 69%, ranging from 59% (mildly humid) up until 86% (very humid) throughout the month, rarely falling below 43% (comfortable) or rising as high as 100% (very humid). The air is driest around July 1st, when the relative humidity falls below 65% (mildly humid) three days out of four, whilst it's at its most humid around July 16th, when it rises above 79% (humid) three days out of four.

Winds

Over the course of an average July, wind speeds across the island vary between 5 m/s (gentle breeze) and 10 m/s (fresh breeze), rarely going over 11 m/s (strong breeze). The highest average wind speed of 7 m/s (moderate breeze) happens around July 13th, when the average daily wind speed is 10 m/s (fresh breeze). On the other hand, the lowest average wind speed of 7 m/s occurs around July 31st, when the average daily maximum wind speed is 9 m/s. The strongest wind ever recorded in Fuerteventura in July is 27.2 m/s, which was registered at Fuerteventura Airport on July 31st 1993.

Summer is the windiest season for Fuerteventura, because the trade winds are particularly strong at this time of year. Whilst they can whip up sand on the beaches and be a pain for sunbathers, these trade winds pass over the cool Canary Current before they reach Fuerteventura and help the scorching summer temperatures feel a bit cooler.

Fuerteventura Beach for July

La Barreta de Abajo is a golden beach which stretches 450m along the north of the island, in La Oliva. Although the sea is very clean and clear, the surf is usually strong and rough – making it unsuitable for families with small children. There is a lifeguard service provided and coloured safety flags, so you know when it's safe to enter the sea. There are no other facilities provided, so you'll need to take your own food, drink and shade with you.

If you want something safer, consider spending the day at Bajo del Dormidero. This beach is located in Corralejo and is partially protected from the winds, thanks to the large sand dunes which flank the bay. The sea is usually fairly wavy, but not so much as to make swimming remotely dangerous.

The only thing you need to look out for when in the sea are the jutting seaweed-covered rocks which are found several places along the beach. The fine, golden sand is just as clean as the sea and measures around 440 metres long by 30 metres wide. There is a car park 250 metres away from the beach and a small bar which serves local food and drinks on the north side of the bay.

Bars and Restaurants

The Ugly Duckling is the best restaurant in Corralejo, according to Trip Advisor. Only open on an evening for dinner, this restaurant specialises in Scandinavian cuisine which is served up alongside some of Fuerteventura's very best wines. The beef tenderloin is well recommended here, as well as the rich, chocolate cake served with refreshing lemon sorbet. The service is very professional, but the cosy surroundings make this restaurant feel friendly and intimate. Due to its small size, you'll need to make a reservation if you want to ensure a table.

If spicy flavours are your thing, then head straight for Bombay Masala. Also located in Corralejo, in the corner of the main square in Old Town, this Indian restaurant specialises in a vast assortment of authentic curry dishes which are quickly prepared to order. Poppadoms and a selection of pickles are usually provided as a complimentary starter, so keep this in mind when placing your order. Don't let the restaurant's small size and unassuming façade put you off – the food here is second to none.

Things to do in Fuerteventura in July

Along with August, July is the best month of the year for kite surfing in Fuerteventura. During this time, high pressure hovers over the Atlantic Ocean, whilst a low pressure stays over the Sahara. When the trade winds blow over, the two pressures combine to create reliable cross-shore winds in the north of Fuerteventura. Flag Beach, located 4km out of Corralejo, facing Isla de Lobos is one of the top locations on the island for kite surfing. At this beach, you'll find a kite surfing training school which offers lessons for beginners and board rental for those who know what they're doing.

Although Fuerteventura is best known for its wind-based water sports, there are many other water sports to try, such as scuba diving. Abyss Fuerteventura is based in Corralejo in the north of Fuerteventura and organises PADI scuba diving courses for small groups led by a trained, qualified instructor. Bubblemaker and Junior Open Water Diver courses are available for children, whilst Discover Scuba Diving, Scuba Diving, Open Water Diver and Open Water Referral courses are available for adults with no or limited previous experience.

Experienced divers can choose between Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver, Divemaster or Scuba Review courses. There is also a scuba diving excursion for people who just want to enjoy the sport – not qualify. Abyss Fuerteventura takes divers to 11 different sites along the east coast of the island, where you'll have the chance to see eagle rays, moray eels, scorpionfish, parrotfish, turtles, octopus, damselfish, stingray and lady scarlet shrimp.
