Weather Overview for Tenerife south

Tenerife in the Canary Islands sits off the coast of  Africa  and enjoys all-year round warm, predominantly dry weather, so it's no surprise it's been nicknamed ‘The Island of Eternal Spring’. 

Tenerife’s climate is one of the most constantly pleasant in the world, seeing only slight variation in temperatures and rainfall from month to month. However, there is a great deal of variation in climate from place to place, and it is possible to pick the kind of weather you want to experience by simply moving around the island. 

In Tenerife south, average highs remain in the 20s throughout the year, going from 21ºC in January to 27ºC in August and September. Unbearable heat is not common, although can occur when winds blow over from the Sahara. Average lows go from 14ºC in January to 21ºC in August and September. From July to September night time temperatures remain in the 20s. 

As Tenerife South enjoys warmer and drier weather than in the north of the island, people flock here all year round to swim – the sea water temperature on average is a pleasant 19 to 23°C – and to soak up some rays. Even in summer the hottest daytime temperatures don’t reach 30°C but the humidity and dew point can increase to make daytimes seem hotter, making the beach the perfect place to cool down. The highest daytime temperatures occur in August with a pleasant 23° C average and occasional highs to 27°C. The night time lows can drop to average lows of 14°C to 16°C during the winter months.

December to February are the cooler months with day time temperatures dropping to averages of 21°C to 23°C that make being outdoors and escaping the winter chills found in Europe and the UK. Night time temperatures drop to a mild to cool 14°C to 16°C.

The winter months are the wettest with average rainfall of between 20mm and 35mm but this only falls on 5 to 7 days each month. The rain is usually in the form of drizzle and light rain and is not enough to ruin your winter holiday. December is the wettest month with 35mm falling over up to 7 days. During the day visitors can expect the humidity to be around 60 to 64% and temperatures a pleasant 21°C.  

Rainfall does vary but only within a range of one to six days expecting to see some rain per month. June and July are the driest months when you can expect to visit without seeing any rain at all. April and October are marginally wetter, expecting three days on which rain will fall each, and the period from November till March is the “wettest” seeing around five or six days with rain. Bear in mind that rainfall averages include all precipitation and snowfall on Teide Mountain.

Tenerife South’s idyllic climate can be attributed to the island’s location and geography. On the same latitude as the Saharan Desert, Tenerife is assured of warmth all year, depending on your altitude; Mount Teide, which shelters the south side of the island from rain, sees three months of snow.

The trade winds and refreshing Canary Current bring cooler temperatures to the whole group of Canary Islands than is to be expected at their latitude, and account for a more agreeable, milder climate. However, these are mainly received by the northwest. While many out-door types favour the north for its mountainous terrain and relief from the heat, the hotter, drier south is a constant pull for beach-lovers worldwide, and is a particular favourite of UK’s holiday-makers. Water sport fans take full advantage of Tenerife south’s dependable weather, calm, glassy waters and stunning reef.
