Fuerteventura (pronounced: [fweɾteβenˈtuɾa]), a Spanish island, is one
of the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.
It is situated at 28°20' north, 14°00' west. At 1,660 km² it is the
second largest of the Canary Islands, after Tenerife. It was declared a
biosphere reserve by UNESCO on May 26, 2009.
The first tourist hotel was built in 1965 followed by the construction
of Fuerteventura Airport at El Matorral, heralding the dawn of a new
era for the island. Fuerteventura, with its 3,000 sunshine hours a

The climate on Fuerteventura is pleasant throughout the year. The
island is also often referred to as the island of eternal spring. The
sea adjusts the temperature making the hot Sahara winds blow away from
the island. The island's name in English translates as 'strong fortune'
or 'strong wind', the Spanish word for wind being 'viento'. During the
winter months, temperatures average a high of 22 °C (72 °F) and a low
of around 15 °C (59 °F), whereas during the summer a mean high of 35 °C
(95 °F) and a low of 20 °C (68 °F) can be expected. Precipitation is
about 147 mm per year, most of which falls in autumn and winter.
October is the month with highest rainfall.
A sandstorm known as the Calima (similar to the Scirocco wind that
blows North from the Sahara into Europe) blows southwestward from the
Sahara Desert and can cause high temperatures, low visibility and
drying air. Temperatures during this phenomenon rise temporarily by
approximately 10 degrees Celsius. The wind brings in fine white sand,
visibility can drop to between 100 to 200 m (328.08 to 656.17 ft) or
even lower and can even bring African locusts to the island.
