Weather in Costa Caleta

Located on the east side of the island of Fuerteventura, Costa Caleta is a tourist town known for its fabulous weather. It sits 10km south of the airport and 30 minutes south of the town of Corralejo. Fuerteventura, the second largest of the Canary Islands after Tenerife, is part of Spain and a top holiday destination for Europeans in search of sun, sand and sangria.

With cool azure waters and white sands, the resort makes for a perfect desert island getaway. It boasts an incredible 300 days of the year with sunshine, mild autumns and winters, warm springs, and hot summers. Particularly in the winter, the warm weather of Fuerteventura beckons tourists from colder European climes to bask on its sun-drenched beaches. 

The horseshoe-shaped beach is shielded from the currents, providing safe swimming for bathers of all ages. Other popular activities available include diving, jet skiing and windsurfing. Boats of all types are available in the harbor for day cruises.

In Spanish, Fuerteventura means 'strong wind', an apt name because the climate of the island is highly influenced by the prevailing winds of the area. Most of the time, an offshore flow from the sea moderates the temperature, causing the hot winds coming in from the Sahara Desert to blow away from the island.

Additionally, the northeast trade winds travel through the region, which also influences the temperatures and the amount of rainfall the island receives. Because the island doesn't have any high mountains, the trade winds flow through without bringing any rain. For this reason, rainfall is scarce, even in the winter, when more rain falls than at other times. The highest peak on Fuerteventura is Pico de Jandìa, on the southwestern portion of the island. It rises to a height of 807 meters.

Whether you enjoy nothing more strenuous than a walk on the beach at sunset, or whether you like an action-packed day filled with activities such as diving or windsurfing, Costa Caleta is a top holiday destination with something to offer everybody.

Weather Hazards in Costa Caleta

Calima Phenomenon

During the autumn, a phenomenon known as the calima can occur. High-pressure building over the Sahara Desert causes arid winds to blow in a south-westward direction. The wind brings with it dust from the desert, and causes the air to fill with grit and a brown haze that covers the sky. Temperatures can increase by 10°C during the calima, and the air dries out considerably.

Blood Rain

Calimas may last from 3 days to 1 week. At this time, the calima may cause another phenomenon known as 'blood rain'. 'Blood rain' occurs when the red desert dust tints the raindrops a rusty color. This reddish rain may cause staining on the pavement, the walls of buildings and outdoor furniture. People with breathing problems may have difficulties during this event due to all the dust in the air.

Locust Swarms

The calima winds can also bring in locusts from Africa. On November 30, 2004, Fuerteventura experienced the largest swarm of locusts it had seen since 1950. One million of the creatures landed on the island, causing the ground to turn pink where they fell. While locust swarms of this magnitude are rare, smaller swarms may occur.

Every now and again, a depression southwest of the islands forms during a calima event. When this occurs, the amount of dust and the speed of the wind can intensify. The hot wind may blanket the region with a dusty fog and a cloying drizzle, reducing visibility.
