The time to fly to Fuerteventura

A refreshing sea breeze means that this Spanish island is pleasant in the summer with temperatures reaching 25 to 30 degrees. Many people also fly to Fuerteventura in winter. And rightly so as the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees. A boat trip from Corralejo to Isla de Los Lobos is fun to do all year round. The boats ‘El Majorero’ and ‘Isla de Lobos’ have glass bottoms so you can admire the Spanish underwater life in the clear water.
