WHEN TO GO
Temperatures in Fuerteventura rarely drop below the mid-teens in winter and 25˚C in summer. In August, it can get as hot as 30˚C. Fortunately, the island feels the benefit of trade winds, so it’s never unbearably warm. It’s also one of the drier Canary Islands. The most rain falls on the north of the island between October and March, but even then you rarely get more than 1.5 centimetres a month.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Spanish nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment.
