Weather
Location  Antigua   Antigua
The weather in Antigua like the rest of Fuerteventura is influenced by its close proximity to the coast of Africa which ensures plenty of year round sunshine. The strong trade winds that blow in from the northeast generally keep the temperature down to an enjoyable level and during the summer months bring a welcome relief from the heat.
