Weather Averages for Fuerteventura in November
Averages for Fuerteventura in November
Winter approaches Fuerteventura this month and brings with it strong winds countered by some good bouts of sunshine. November is a quiet month that attracts off-season visitors seeking better weather than back home. Average daytime temperatures slightly drop to 21 degrees Celsius while seawater temperatures stay at an inviting 22 degrees. Apart from the frequent winds, the weather holds no surprises and temperatures don’t fluctuate much during this month. Daytime high peaks can climb up to 24 degrees while low peaks can get down to 17 degrees Celsius. The sun shines for 9 hours each day. November can signal some cloud cover, which can occasionally bring rain upon the island amounting to 30mm of total precipitation for 3 days of the month on average.
The island’s signature winds are strong during November and pelt Fuerteventura from the north and the south equally. Of particular interest are the southern winds (known as ‘siroccos’) coming from Africa, as they may cause a phenomenon known locally as ‘calima’, which is most pronounced during November. Calima can cause dust storms and afflict mild sand whipping to beachgoers on Fuerteventura’s southern beaches. These storms are mostly harmless but can be inconvenient if you’re hoping to hit the beach.
Golf Club Salinas de Antigua is a popular golf course of 18 holes, par 70, designed by Manolo Piñeiro, twice world champion in golfing.

The trail gets golfers through lakes, greens and even desert patches across 21.450 square metres.
Perhaps one of the most unique museums on the island, Museo de la Sal (museum of salt) is a lot more interesting than it sounds.

The museum is situated mostly outdoors and the views are good, too.
