Although the island of Tenerife lies only a little way to the north of the Tropic of Cancer, the unique
combination of both Gulf and Trade Winds that sweeps the island, somehow prevent it from mirroring its
nearest neighbour the Sahara desert.
Statistics show us that Tenerife features the lowest temperature difference between summer and winter for anywhere in the world, and as you can see from the chart, average daily temperatures vary only slightly throughout the year making Tenerife an ideal all year round holiday destination.
Tenerife is divided by a mountain range which then effectively creates two very differing climates in a very short distance. The cooler northern part of the island is a lush tropical paradise with banana plantations and palm trees. Here it is quite possible that you will experience a significant number of cloudy days, and perhaps even a few rain day during your visit. In contrast the south of the island is hot and dry with almost a desert like landscape.
A point certainly worth making when contemplating a holiday to Tenerife is that the weather station is located in the north of the island, therefore the weather reports in many of the UK's national newspapers will be taken from the islands capital of Santa Cruz, and as such, may not represent the true temperatures and conditions in the south.
