Tenerife weather by month

Source: Meteorological data for Tenerife is based on weather statistics gathered for the 30-year period 1991 to 2020 by Spain's Agencia Estatal de Meteorología (AEMET) from the closest weather station: Tenerife South International Airport (TFS), also known as Tenerife South–Reina Sofía Airport, located in the south of Tenerife around 60km (37mi) from Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Advice on the best time to visit a particular destination is based on average local weather statistics, when the weather conditions are generally better than at other times of the year. We consider high and low temperatures, risk of rain (and thunderstorms, etc.), amount of sunshine and sea temperature. For general outdoor activities we favour clear, rainless days with a temperature range between 18°C (64°F) and 27°C (80°F); and for hot-weather activities we favour clear, rainless days with a temperature range between 24°C (75°F) and 32°C (89°F). Often, the best times to visit correspond to high season and therefore involve higher prices.
