Like the rest of the Canaries, Fuerteventura is warm and sunny all year round. The temperature rarely drops below the mid-teens even in the winter months, and things only get hotter in July and August, when they often push past 30°C. You’ll find the island’s trade winds take the edge off the heat, though.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills in Fuerteventura include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
