Here is my post on the weather for the whole of March -

Weather anywhere is a bit of a lottery, but the weather is generally good in Fuerteventura in March. It also depends to an extent on when you go in March – generally the later the better - and where you go. The south is generally a bit warmer.

You can get the weather history for Fuerteventura on weatheronline.co.uk/Spain/Fuerteventura.htm

Click on History on the right hand side

In March 2013, the maximum temperature was just over 32C on March 16th and the lowest maximum daily temperature was just under or over 22C on about 10 days. On the rest of the March days the daily maximum was higher than that.

March 2012 was quite different. From March 3 to Mar 20 the maximum daily temperature was 22C but most of the time the daily maximum was 20C to 21C. It was never below 20C.

The temperature depends on the wind direction. If the wind is from the north or north east it is generally cool. The north east wind is the most common direction. In March 2013 there were a lot of days when the wind came from southerly quarters and this accounts for the high temperatures

There was heavy rain on March 3rd 2013 but little or no rain after that.

Check out the website

Hope this helps

We fly out on 5th March. Me , hubby & 16 yr old son. Have been looking at various weather forecast sites & all say different.

Really do hope we get some sunbathing weather, just wanna lie by the pool & chill.

Info on best & safest beaches with water sports would be appreciated.

You do not say where you are staying and whether you will have a car. Guess not if you 'just wanna lie by the pool & chill'.

If it is the Suite Hotel Atlantis Fuerteventura Resort then you are very well located for the two beaches inside Corralejo. Note sure that you are allowed dune buggies because the dunes are a protected area. It is about a 30 minute walk to dunes and the great beaches. The swimming is not as safe as at the shallow reef protected beaches near where you are staying.

Welcome to all you March visitors. I hope you all have a great time here in Corralejo, and get to listen to some of the live music the place is famous for and eat in some of the many restaurants, as well as enjoying the beaches.

You're asking far too much if you expect anything at all accurate in the way of weather forecast (in response to the poster who says the forecasts are all different); only the 3-day ones are of any real use. Being very small islands dotted around a very large ocean, we find that the weather can change very abruptly and with very little warning.

But the summer systems should be kicking in by then, and you'll be unlucky if you get anything more than a very light (and welcome) sprinkling of rain. I hope so anyway, as the weather has been unusually bleak so far in 2014. There will probably be some cloud, but plenty of sun as well. Don't despair if it's thick cloud when you get up - it may well be gorgeous later. Daytime temperature rarely falls below about 18°C in mid-winter, so you're certainly going to be OK is shorts and T-shirt during the day, but the evening may feel cooler than it really is if it's been sunny. We're only 100km from the Sahara, so that sun packs a very big punch, all year round.

The best beach for watersports is Flag Beach. It starts right at the edge of town and goes down to the two RIU hotels, where the dunes start to grow in size. It's quite an important beach in the world of kite-surfing and specialises in everything you can do on a board and/or in the wind (so land yachting is also available).

You can go on buggie trips but they don't let you go on your own, AFAIK. As NT7 says, the dunes are a protected area - a UNESCO Heritage site, no less.

ENJOY! :)
