Any particular resort get better March weather than others?

We have been to Lanzarote many times in both March and August and it is a well known fact that the east and south sides are sunnier than the north and west. We are thinking of trying Fuerteventura in late March/early April and are wondering if the same applies and that some areas get more sun than others.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks.

Hey

I have stayed in the South East of Fuerteventura (Jandia) a few times and El Cotillo in the North West at the same time of year. The SE was a little hotter and less unpredictable and locals mentioned that it is a little hotter down there. However, I am no expert on Fuerteventura and this was only my experience, I am sure there will be others (some of whom are residents) that can give their expert opinion.

It's true that the south is generally a little sunnier than the north. OTOH, in April you'll likely get more sun than you know what to do with anywhere on the island.

Thanks to you both. Good to have a response from a fellow Wirralian!

So the Jandia / Costa Calma area is perhaps better than the resorts nearer to the airport such as Costa Caleta? We would be there for only a few days into April so most of the 2 weeks would be in March. On Lanzarote, depending on where you are there is a big variation in the time it takes for the inevitable morning cloud to dissolve so it's great to be able to pick the brains of people who know Fuerteventura's weather quirks.

Hey

Just so you know, there is a distinct difference in terms of clientele/level of activity between the likes of Corralejo/Caleta etc and C Calma/Jandia in the South. Costa Calma and Jandia are much quieter than Corr/Caleta and cater mainly for German clientele. They are very quiet resorts although in Jandia in particular, there are plenty of restaurants/taverna's and beach tavernas and of course Morro Jable. There is more life in Caleta and especially in Corralejo where you will find more Brits/Cosmopolitan crowd and bars/restaurants to suit but not manic, still laid back. The beaches in Jandia are amazing and imo are better than those in the North although Fuerteventura in general is known for its fantastic beaches all over the island.

Its horses for courses and where you choose will very much depend on what factors are important to you.

PS, when I stayed in Jandia a few times, any morning haze/bitty high cloud would generally shift by mid morning and then it was sun sun sun all the way

Enjoy fellow Wirralian.

Thanks yet again. Such invaluable info!

Quiet is what we always look for. We did a day trip one year from Lanza to Corralejo and weren't all that taken to be honest. The beach was amazing though, as you say. It was just the resort that didn't quite float our boats. Jandia and Costa Calma sound like more our kind of thing and if the morning condensation/cloud gets zapped earlier that decides it!
