The island has warm dry summers and cooler winters with some rainfall during the winter months. However the natural vegetation everywhere is adapted to the semi-arid conditions, because months can pass in the summer with no rainfall at all.

Although it is only a short distance from North Africa, Tenerife is nothing like as hot because the island is surrounded by the cool waters of the Atlantic and refreshed by a cool almost constant north-east wind which brings rain during the winter months.

Tenerife also has the advantage being mountainous enough to intercept the moisture in passing clouds. In fact the peak of Mount Teide which is over 3,700 metres (12,100 ft) high usually sits above the clouds.

The mixture of dry conditions and the constant north-east trade wind produces one of the healthiest climates in the world, perfect holiday weather. There is plenty of sunshine while the surrounding sea regulates air temperatures, preventing the island from becoming too hot in summer or too cold in winter.

The north of the island where the capital Santa Cruz is located and which faces the prevailing wind has slightly more rainfall and a little less sunshine than the south. Because of this and the availability of more beaches, most of the holiday destinations are located in the south.

In February and March a dust storm known as the 'calima' can blow off the Sahara Desert, reducing visibility severely for a few days while depositing fine Saharan dust everywhere. It is like a dry warm fog and may cause problems for those who suffer from respiratory problems.

Generally the weather in Tenerife is good all year round making it an ideal destination whenever you plan your holiday.
