Weather in Playa de Fanabe

Overview

Playa de Fanabe is a gold sand beach located on the south side of the island of Tenerife. The island itself is part of the Canary Islands and belongs to Spain. Located near Costa Adeje, this beach is routinely voted as one of the best in the world for its cleanliness and facilities. The waters just off shore are fairly shallow making it perfect for swimming and with small waves, the region is also a hot spot for water sports such as jet skis. Located nearby are numerous restaurants, cafes, bars and shopping. This beach is one not to be missed and with year-round pleasant weather conditions, it can be enjoyed any time of the year.

Winter

Winter is considered to be December, January and February, but the season here is not the same as on the mainland of Spain. At Playa de Fanabe, the weather remains fairly dry and warm making the region a great getaway to escape the harsh conditions that are often present elsewhere in Europe. The two coolest months of the season are January and February with average afternoon highs of 21°C (70°F). However, these temperatures are still mild enough to enjoy the myriad of outdoor activities that the region offers. Average overnight lows are cool enough to need a jacket with temperatures falling from daytime averages of 18°C (61°F) to 14°C (57°F) in both January and February.

December is the wettest month of the three with an average rainfall amount of 43mm spread over 6 days – this is the highest annual rainfall. January and February are much drier with rainfall amounts between 27-29mm over an average of 5 days in both months. Winter is considered the off-season as sea temperatures are generally too cool to enjoy water sports and the rain is the greatest. However, this makes it a great time to get a good deal and enjoy a peaceful winter getaway without the crowds.

Spring

Made up of March, April and May, spring in Playa de Fanabe begins to usher in the dry season and is a wonderful time to visit the region. Temperatures begin to slowly climb on land, but visitors will still need a light jacket or long sleeves first thing in the early morning hours. Overnight lows climb slowly from 15°C (59°F) in March to 16°C (61°F) in May. Average afternoon high temperatures will range from 22°C (72°F) to 23°C (73°F).  Sea surface temperatures will also remain on the cool side and those who choose to partake in water sports during this time of the year may need a wet suit in order to stay warm enough. Average water temperatures throughout the season remain very consistent between 19°C (67°F) in March and April and 20°C (68°F) in May.

Rain chances will diminish greatly over the season with March being the rainiest, seeing an average of 27mm of precipitation over 5 days. By the end of the season, rain is hard to come by with 11mm falling in April and only 5mm in May. Throughout the season, there is plenty of sunshine available to get out and about and enjoy the nice weather with sunshine hours averaging between 7-9 hours on each given day.

Summer

Summer is considered the peak travel time to this region with little rain to be had, instead there are mainly sunny days, warm temperatures and plenty of outdoor activities to partake in. Rainfall in June, July and August is virtually nonexistent with June receiving an average of 1mm, July getting 2mm and August seeing 3mm of precipitation over the entire month. Temperatures on land also reflect the summer season with average afternoon highs climbing from 24°C (75°F) in June to 27°C (81°F) in August. Average overnight lows have also warmed to a point that long sleeves and jackets can be left at home. The average start to the day is a very mild 18°C (64°F) in June and a pleasant 21°C (70°F) by August.

The chance of seeing any clouds during this time of the year is also very low averaging between 2-6 percent. As a result, many people flock to the region this time of the year to bask in the sun and participate in a number of land and water activities. The sea surface temperatures are finally climbing to much warmer conditions during the season and will average between 21°C (70°F) in June and 23°C (73°F) in August. As a result, those taking to the water can enjoy the surf without having to need a wetsuit to stay warm. And with 9 or 10 hours of sunshine per day, sunbathing is definitely a pastime to indulge in!

Autumn

Autumn on the island consists of September, October and November and is still a wonderful time of the year to visit. Vacationers may also be able to score slightly better rates in this season as temperatures begin to cool slightly and some rain returns to the region. However, sea surface temperatures, especially in September and October, are still plenty warm enough to take advantage of the water sports available. Water temperatures are actually at their warmest in September with an average of 24°C (75°F). They cool only by a degree or so in October, but do fall off by another few in November with an average temperature of 22°C (72°F). This is a good indicator of the length of summer weather in the region, which can often last well into October, leaving November as the only truly autumnal month.

For example, average high daytime temperatures will range from 27°C (81°F) in September to 24°C (75°F) by November. Average overnight lows will cool though to 18°C (64°F) by November that a light jacket is needed first thing in the morning hours.  Sunshine hours are also on the decline with the region recording an average of 6-7 hours of sunshine each day. Most days do remain cloud free with the chance of seeing a cloudy day standing between 3-6 months throughout the period. Despite limited cloud cover, rain chances are on the increase when clouds do form. After several dry months, showers return to the region with September receiving an average of 5mm of rain increasing to 20mm in October and climbing to 39mm for the month of November, the second highest amount of the year. The average number of days seeing rain will also increase from 2 days in September to 6 days by November. However, there are still plenty of dry days for vacationers to take advantage of.
