If you're looking for a bit of sun before Christmas then Adeje in Tenerife should be at the top of your list of possible holiday destinations. For a winter month, the average temperature is at a pleasant 19°C so you'll be able to enjoy days out around the swimming pool, at the beach or if you decide to go hiking. During the month, temperatures can reach up to 22°C and see a low of a mild 16°C. Even if you experience low temperatures during your stay, it is still warm enough to enjoy days out. While the temperatures are pleasant, December does have the highest average amount of rainfall in the year at 75mm over an average of 13 days so you may experience a shower or two during your stay. It therefore worth checking the weather forecast.
You will get 6 hours of sunshine each day in December which is the lowest of the year with November and January but we're sure you'll agree 6 hours is still plenty of time to catch a tan, got to the beach or spend the day at the waterpark, especially for a winter month. If you are planning on heading to the beach during your stay, you will be pleased to know that the average sea temperature at this time of year is at a pleasant 20°C which is actually higher than January, February, March and April.
More good news is that there is only a 6% chance of experiencing a cloudy day and a 53% chance of there being a windy day which is actually less than in the summer months when the chance of a windy day was up to 60%.
