What to pack?
The average temperature in Tenerife is 23 degrees centigrade (73,4 ºF), and 300 days of sunshine per year.
We recommend you bring beachwear and sun protection, comfy cotton clothing for the summer and a cardigan or light jacket for the winter depending on the altitude of the areas you visit. The island of Tenerife has a very stable climate. Its orography and the influence of the trade winds produce microclimates, which can make for varied temperatures between very short distances, something to bare in mind when travelling around the island.
