Tenerife Scene Terenife still shows influence from the aboriginal Gaunches people. Visitors clamber to conquer Mount Teide (Spain’s tallest peak) and to stretch out on the sands of Los Gigantes. Squawk hello to the playful parrots of Loro Park, or brave the petrifying drive to beautiful Masca Valley. For a true taste of Terenife, sample fresh farmhouse cheese and local bananas. A piece of delicate calado canario lace makes a special souvenir.

Climate: The Canary Islands enjoy a remarkably mild climate. They are located in the Atlantic Ocean, just north of the Tropic of Cancer, a short distance from the coasts of Morocco and Western Sahara, in a stretch of sea where a cool current flows. They are also subject to the trade winds, which blow constantly from the north east. Along the coasts, the daily average temperature ranges from 18°C in January and February to 24°C in July, August, and September. You can visit the Canary Islands throughout the year, since they have a very mild climate. However, in late autumn and in winter, temperatures are spring-like, and some cloudy days can occur, as well as a bit of wind and rain. While northern European tourists often arrive this time of year to escape the Nordic winter, and they find many sunny and pleasant days, the period from May to mid-October will be preferable for a beach holiday, although the sea is still cool in May, and will warm up gradually in the following months.
