Is Fuerteventura windy? 

Yes, Fuerteventura is windy: the surfing championships take place in this island.

How is the weather in Fuerteventura

The weather in Fuerteventura is very variable: the wind is not constant but there are days that can be very strong, others only a slight breeze. When the wind drops, it is very hot and the sun is quite scorching. I'll tell you if you have fair skin and you're at risk of getting burned.

  • Least windy part of Fuerteventura

On my last vacation in Fuerteventura, I spent 10 days on this beautiful island staying in 3 different places: 4 days in Corralejo, 3 days in Caleta de Fuste, 3 days in Morro del Jable, so I could see nearby attractions without driving too much from one place to another and assess the climatic conditions in the various villages.

⭐ Turn English subtitles on, to follow my video:

I advise you to look for accommodation in the area you see on the map: Caleta de Fuste, where you are most likely to shelter from the wind even in the beach.

  • Is Caleta de Fuste windy? 

Caleta de Fuste is windy but it has a "conca beach: playa del Castillo" and is fairly sheltered. The wind is present in some days, not constantly. In the windiest days, people lie down and sunbathe next the wall surrounding the beach.

There are no waves in this shelter beach so children can stay on the shore to swim and play.

Is the wind cold in Fuerteventura?

No, the wind is not cold in Fuerteventura. 
I went to Fuerteventura in January and February and I can't say that the wind was cold but, when it got up, it was annoying.

Fuerteventura windy months

It is really hard to predict if wind will affect your holiday but I can try to do an average about what local people said to me.
The best months to stay in Fuerteventura aremid September, October, first day of November.

In September and October the wind decrease. In this period, especially if you stay on the east coast of Fuerteventura you should not be overwhelmed by the wind.

These seem to be the best months as a climate, temperatures, like a low wind.

Is costa Calma windy? 

Yes it is, Costa Calma is the windiest part of Fuerteventura.
In spite of the name, "Costa Calma" is a windy place. In the South area (Sotavento, Jandia) the wind is very annoying in summer season and it reaches its peak in August.
In Costa Calma you can find centers for windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Is Jandia windy?

Yes it is, Costa Calma, located in Jandia, is the windiest part of Fuerteventura. I visited "Sotavento beach", in the middle of winter in two consecutive days: the first day there was no wind and I took a pleasant stroll. The next day I ran away after 15 minutes: the wind was very strong.

Is Fuerteventura windy in August?

July and August are the windiest months in Fuerteventura. This is the period in which the world windsurfing championship takes place.

During the other months the wind decreases, or rather, is alternated by windy days and days when there is only a slight breeze.
The wind power is around 10 to 30km/h on average.

Windiest part of Fuerteventura

If you do not like the strong wind and are planning to stay in Fuerteventura in summer, it is better to avoid the south-east area, even if Sotavento beach is one of the most beautiful of the island.

Also the western area of ​​Fuerteventura is windiest than the other coast.

Least windy part of Fuerteventura: where to stay

In general, the east coast of Fuerteventura is the least windy area, except for Sotavento and Costa Calma. The major part of the beaches in Fuerteventura are sandy.

If you choose the villages enclosed in a bay you will have more chances to be sheltered from the winds. So I advise you to stay in one of these locations:

It is better to stay in Corralejo or Caleta de Fuste.

Caleta de Fuste it is a place full of English tourists. If you travel with children, it is better stay in this village: October is the best month to stay here, the sea water is a bit warmer compared to previous months.

One of our top picks in Caleta De Fuste:

Hotel In Caleta de Fuste beachfront for those looking for a beachfront hotel a Caleta de Fuste.
Accommodation in the Least windy part in Caleta de Fuste.
πŸ‘‰ Book an accommodation in Fuerteventura (see the landing page with all the tourist areas.

Is Fuerteventura windier than Lanzarote?

Similar. Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are the most windiest canary islands.

Is Fuerteventura windier than Tenerife and Gran Canaria? 

Yes it is. Fuerteventura is windier than Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
If you do not love the wind, it is better stay in the least windy area of Gran Canaria or the least windy part of Tenerife.


- TIPS -

Book an accommodation in a residence with the swimming pool surrounded by a wall so, if the wind increases, you will not be bothered and remain in a protected area to sunbathe.

Pay attention: the sun is very hot in Fuerteventura! The Canaries are islands located north of the Tropic of Cancer.
Bring a sunscreen in your suitcase (at least 30-50 sfp).


Go! Don't think too much about the climate

Normally Fuerteventura is windy. A lot it depends on luck: If during your stay you will find anomalous thunderstorms, bad weather, rain, it is normal that there is more wind and the temperatures are lower. However the climate is variable so there will be no wind and rain throughout the holiday.
Be confident and have fun!
