Between June 24th and 28th in 2012, the Canary Islands saw one of the most severe calimas to ever hit the islands. At this time, intense sand storms swept over the sea from the Sahara Desert and saw temperatures spike to 38°C that's 13°C higher than the average daily highs.
Calimas not only result in extreme heat, but they also often bring with them blustery conditions and extremely low visibility due to a high concentration of dust and sand particles into the air, blown over from the Sahara. Yellow and orange alerts were issued by the Spanish MET office at this time.
The first heat-wave of summer 2014 hit Tenerife on June 30th. This heat-wave was caused by the Azores anticyclone, which brought hot, sandy air over from the Sahara Desert, resulting in a calima. When the extreme weather condition first hit Tenerife on June 30th, temperatures were in the mid-30s. But by July 1st, temperatures had soared up to 40°C.

Tenerife Beach for June

Playa de Troya in Costa Adeje is one of the best beaches in the south for families who want to be close to lots of amenities. Backed by a busy promenade bursting with hotels, shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, this beach always has a lively atmosphere even in the quieter start of the month.
This beach is made up of black sand set in a crescent shape which is protected by a rocky breakwater, ensuring the sea is almost always calm enough for swimming. On the beach you'll find sun loungers, parasols, lifeguards, showers, changing rooms and toilets. Further south, you'll find the Arona beaches with beautiful golden sand and excellent amenities.
Playa Torviscas in Costa Adeje is another beach ideally positioned for accessing many amenities, although it's a lot smaller than Playa de Troya. This beach offers sun loungers, parasols, showers, toilets, changing rooms and lifeguards. There are loads of water sports on offer here, too, including pedalo rental, parasailing, banana boats, jet skis and water buggies, all of which can be booked at the kiosk at the eastern side of the beach.

If you're on a budget, you'll find a Spar supermarket about 300m away if you walk west along the promenade.
Bars and Restaurants
Cafe Med Bistro and Bar
Cafe Med Bistro and Bar in Golf del Sur is a fantastic place to go if you're looking for a delicious meal for an affordable price. Located within the Royal Tenerife Country Club resort, this eatery offers international dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus some Peruvian specials.
Popular favourites include the roast lamb which needs to be ordered 24 hours in advance, steak fajitas, sea bass and homemade lasagne. A daily special is also offered, as well as homemade cakes served for afternoon tea. The only negative point is that this small restaurant is located very close to the car park. But although the view isn't great, the food certainly is.
Thai Botanico in Playa de Las Americas is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. This sophisticated restaurant is located on the upper floor of the Safari Centre and features Thai-inspired decor, with plants, artwork and statues adding an exotic ambiance.
The menu features hot and cold starters, salads, char-grilled dishes, house specials, stir fries, noodles and rice dishes, each of which is prepared with your choice of chicken, steak, prawns, duck, pork, squid, hake, vegetables or tofu. The drinks menu is one of the most varied on the island and boasts nine champagnes, 12 red wines, 11 white wines, four rose wines, international beers, spirits, cocktails and soft drinks.
Papagayo in Playa de Las Americas is the trendiest nightclub in Tenerife. Located on the western side of Las Veronicas on the seafront, this nightclub offers a chilled-out feel during the daytime, with loungers set out on the outdoor terrace. But come nightfall, the club takes on a totally different atmosphere with resident and celebrity DJs, theme nights and guest performers.
There is an entrance fee to pay, but you also get one free drink, so it works out quite fair. Whilst there is an extensive selection of beers, wines, champagnes, spirits and soft drinks available, Papagayo is best known for its cocktails and has almost 200 to choose from.
For something more relaxed, try Taylor's Lounge in Los Cristianos. This British bar offers air-conditioned seating indoors and sun-kissed seating outdoors on the small terrace.

Live entertainment and karaoke nights are hosted throughout the week, but most people head to Taylor's Lounge to catch the live sporting events which are shown inside and outside the bar on large screen TVs.
Things to do in Tenerife in June
Punta de Teno
Punta de Teno in the north west of Tenerife is a great place for nature lovers to visit and the lighthouse marks the most westerly point of the island. This site is one of the oldest geological areas on the island and can only be reached by car by following the 9km-long road from Buenavista del Norte. It's best to visit this attraction on a day with calm weather because the road is often closed off due to high winds. Heavy rainfall can also cause the road to be closed down, making June an optimum time to visit.
Within Punta de Teno you'll find a wealth of endemic flora and fauna, such as the Euphorbia aphylla and Ceropegia dichotoma succulents which are rarely found elsewhere. There is a small footpath which you can follow to reach the mountain village of Teno Alto which is best known for its locally-produced goat cheese. But if you're not up for the challenge or don't have your hiking boots with you, you can simply admire the sea views.
Golf Costa Adeje
For some light sport during your holiday in Tenerife, enjoy a round of golf at Golf Costa Adeje in Costa Adeje. This golf course features an 18-hole par 72 course and a nine-hole par 33 course, both of which are suitable for golfers of all abilities and experiences.
The nine-hole course is the more technical of the two, with shorter holes, six lakes and more challenges to overcome. In addition to the two courses, Golf Costa Adeje also offers a 45,000m2 driving range spread over two heights, a practice bunker, two putting greens, one chipping green and three professionals which offer lessons in Spanish, English, French, German and Dutch.
