The dreamy Tenerife Island is definitely a “yes” when it comes to the long-awaited holiday of the year. Deciding between major destinations from the Spanish islands might be hard. Not to mention, there are several smaller islands building the archipelago, all of them having unique characteristics.
The third island from the Spanish Islands series is the Island of Eternal Spring.
Tenerife Island is located in the Atlantic Ocean, very close to Africa but it belongs to the Canary archipelago. The Island of Eternal Spring is the most populated one in the Canary Islands, and also the most preferred by tourists.
The best time to visit
Known as the Island of Eternal Spring, Tenerife has over 20º Celsius (68º Fahrenheit) even in winter.
At summer the temperature is very warm, it can get as high as 40º Celsius (104º Fahrenheit) but the average is 25º Celsius (77º Fahrenheit).
Starting from November until March the weather will be on your side so you can enjoy your holiday on the island. On the south of the island the temperature is usually warmer. From the third week of March you can sunbath and even swim in the sea, but the temperature can get lower so if you don’t want to miss the Sun, you better plan your holiday in August or September.
