Weather in Tenerife
The warm temperatures characterize the weather in Tenerife as one of the best climates in the world. As a result, the island is considered a perfect vacation destination for tourists. Here is the Official link with the real-time forecasts of the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET).
Thanks to this amazing weather, numerous resorts* have emerged and evolved, specially designed to accommodate the nearly 6 million of tourists who visit the island each year. But, what is the best time for your next trip to the island? Read this article before booking your vacation at a hotel, resort or apartment in Tenerife.
When is it best to enjoy weather in Tenerife:
Firstly, the average temperature is 18° in winter and 25° with a peak that exceeds 30° during summer. Secondly, the sea temperature rarely falls below 17° in winter and reaches 24° in summer months. Therefore, the climate is a key component of tourism throughout the year in the Canary Islands. However, and although Tenerife enjoys a constant pleasant climate, it should not be forgotten that it is possible to see snow every year on Teide National Park because of rainfall from the north in the coldest months, for instance. Morevoer, the island of Tenerife is said to have close to 100 microclimates and it is not easy to forecast the weather on the island, although most days of the year are sunny and warm.
*Tenerife’s largest holiday complex (Playa de Las Américas), was expressly built in the 1960s and since then it has remained particularly popular with tourists. Both its climate and its lively atmosphere are an undoubted attraction for all types of tourists every year, from bachelor parties to families. It has five main beaches (mostly man-made, with sand from the Sahara desert), some of the largest hotel complexes on the island and, for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle, it is possible to visit towns like Arona, with its great variety of native flora and plenty of space to relax away from the crowds.
In conclusion and in other words, you will always be able to enjoy a great weather in the island, no matter the month. Certainly, the warmest areas will be in the south of Tenerife, like Los Cristianos or Costa Adeje. North areas may be a bit more cloudy in colder months, but also green and beautiful too 🙂
