Puerto de la Cruz has the perfect holiday climate almost all year round making the island a popular destination not just in the summer but also in the northern hemisphere’s winter months. Puerto de la Cruz summers are very hot, basking under the sun of Europe’s most southerly set of islands. The true summer months last from late May until early September with the reminder of the year regarded as spring like weather.
The average daytime in Puerto de la Cruz temperature during the summer is 28°C but this is the reading in shade, in direct sun is much hotter. The winter maximum is a pleasant 19°C, which is both suitable for the beach and exploring the island.
The majority of the meager rainfall is in the winter months but the number of wet days is a very deceptive measurement. Rains are short lived and the total precipitation levels for Tenerife are a fraction of northern Europe.
There is a north south climate divide to Tenerife caused by the high mountains in the centre of the island. This divide is unnoticeable during the hot, dry summers but in winter the north is cooler and wetter than the south.
