Weather Overview for Puerto de la Cruz

Located on the north coast of Tenerife Island; Puerto de la Cruz is one of the Canary Islands most popular tourist destinations.

Even though the town experiences a warm Mediterranean climate; Puerto de la Cruz is located in the cooler, greener part of the island, 24 miles west of the capital; Santa Cruz.

Due to the town’s positioning on the peninsula at the base of the La Orotava Valley, Puerto de la Cruz benefits from the very best of Tenerife’s bounty. The region obtains less rain and more sunshine than the majority of the north of the island but on the other hand receives enough rainfall to maintain luxuriant flora and fauna that supplies the town with its profusion of gardens and its sub-tropical appearance.

The summer months are very long and very hot; even throughout the wintertime the climate is still mild enough to lay on the beach and work on a golden tan. Temperatures in Puerto de la Cruz generally stay above 20°C throughout the winter and summertime will typically reach highs of 30°C. The amount of precipitation throughout this region is very minimal and when the sporadic shower does occur it is normally very short and brisk.

The weather can be less consistent than in the south and the beaches do not compare. Given this; Puerto Cruz appeals to a wide variety of holidaymakers, even though the winter months attract more established guests, especially from central Europe.

The climate varies only minimal throughout an entire year ensuring an ideal beach holiday at any time of the year. If you’re a tourist that loves high temperatures it is recommended to visit the region during any of the summer months; from May through until October when the temperatures truly start to rise. Months after May will see temperatures above the 25°C mark and will frequently rise beyond 30°C in July and August, and the sun will be shinning down brightly for around ten hours per day. Night times throughout the summer months in Puerto de la Cruz are idyllic for sitting on the terraces or even enjoying a late night swim.

Thanks to the short flight time and mild winter months Puerto de la Cruz sees many people vacating to this beautiful area escaping the cooler climates of many other European destinations. Golf vacations in Puerto de la Cruz are admired during the winter months as temperatures from November to February are still over 20°C, with the sun shining for approximately six hours per day. Visitors can still lie on the beach and easily achieve a glowing tan during the winter months, making Puerto de la Cruz the ideal destination for a winter sunshine break.
