Welcome to the forum, Andrew.

The Weather in Corralejo (thanks for spelling the name correctly, BTW) will be summer-ish, temps 24C in the day and 17C in the night. There's about 1% chance you'll see any rain and the temperature of the ocean will be about 19C.

If you're planning your first trip to the island, check the Things to do in Fuerteventura forum as well as the best car rental company thread, before you'll book your transfer or a car.

Enjoy your stay and don't hesitate to ask any questions regarding Fuerteventura. Everyone here is more than happy to help you with your trip.

Hi Andrew 

Welcome on board to the no. 1 Fuerteventura forum. As Sam says expect temperatures in 24’C, I would even say they could be higher up to 26’C from past experience.

I hope you enjoy your holidays in May.

Morning Andrew

Here are some Weather reports from around the island for the first week in May 2018. Thanks to some dedicated Weather reporters. 

The reports will be spread over a few posts, due to the limit of 10 images/post.

El Cotillo... A remote report to start the month off. The outlook is for a clear sunny day, with any overnight cloud burning off during the morning. There will be a fresh northerly cross/shore wind averaging 17mph. Temperatures expected in the high teens.

Weather back in the UK has recently been cold and wet. I think we returned here a month too early.

I flew home today after 10 days on the island.  I have to say it's been the worst Weather I've ever experienced in April, and I don't think I'll come again in April.  I had 3 nights in the south to start with, where I got rained off the beach 2 days running.  Then moved up to Corralejo, which was predominantly cloudy and with a bitterly cold northerly wind.  Had to put the heating on in the apartment in the evenings!

Tindaya and Corralejo - a grey start but the cloud soon broke up. Still the very cold, strong northerly winds.

Tindaya - a gorgeous day! Wind dropped to a light breeze, N or NW, although still a bit of a chill to it. However the sun seemed warmer than of late so a very nice day all round. So nice I got the buggy out and went down to the coast for a couple of hours this afternoon. (Several jellyfish washed up.) Almost total cloud cover moved in from the NW by sunset.

Visibility. Excellent.

Sea. A 2/3 Ft swell

Uv. 9.

Tindaya - some strange clouds first thing this morning with little breeze. Cloud mainly cleared giving a bright, sunny day but the breeze picked up again, became quite blustery and was chilly at times. Plenty of cloud reappeared later in the day.

Tindaya - despite what the pics show there was actually a lovely lot of sunshine during the day, I just forgot to snap it! Very cloudy start and finish, few spits of rain, constant cold northerly wind but if you could find a sheltered spot it was pretty warm.
