Averages for Fuerteventura in June
Fuerteventura welcomes summer to the island. At the peak of the tourist season, June brings perfect subtropical weather and bags of sunshine. Indeed, the sun shines for a whopping 13 hours every day, and there is hardly any cloud cover over the island. During June, no rain is expected to fall (it hasn’t rained in June since 2008).
Average daytime temperatures rise to a comfortable 22 degrees Celsius, with daytime high peak reaching 25 degrees during midday. The seawater temperature stays around 22 degrees. During June, temperatures rarely drop below 18 degrees and in the last few years, temperatures have been steadily rising higher and higher.
True to its name, Fuerteventura (literally meaning ‘strong fortune/wind’) experiences strong winds during June. These winds are hot, mostly coming from Africa, and enable water sports enthusiasts to surf and sail to their heart’s content. These winds are known to infrequently raise sandstorms during June and cause a phenomenon known locally as ‘calima’, a mildly uncomfortable sand whipping that can occur - especially in the southern beaches of the island.
During the last decade, Fuerteventura has become a hotspot for surfing. The island’s strong winds and ideal beaches attract numerous surfers who come to brave the waves. The best surf can be found in the northern coast with numerous spots perfectly situated for surfing. There are surf spots for surfers of every skill, such as Rocky point for beginners and the ominously named ‘Suicides’ for the most adventurous and hardened veterans.
Windsurfing is considered the main sport in Fuerteventura, the island of winds. Thousands of windsurfing enthusiasts flock to the island each year to take advantage of the strong winds and the warm weather. On every major beach, windsurf experts offer their services and are willing to get people acquainted with the sport, while experienced windsurfers will find their match on some of the windiest beaches on the island’s northern side. El Cotillio in particular is famous for extreme wave sailing.
In the middle of June you can experience Corpus Christi, a Catholic religious festival. In this festival, Catholics celebrate the belief in the body and blood of Jesus Christ and his Real Presence in the Eucharist. Processions move through every major town and the locals are known to give out free food to celebrate this major religious event. Come nightfall, feasts are held in celebration of the event.
The San Juan bonfires, celebrating the summer solstice are lit up across the island every year. Especially in Vallebrón, the celebrations last for three days and nights, and the San Juan Bautista y Nuestra Señora de Gracia celebration are also held on 24th of June, culminating the summer solstice feast.
