Tenerife in Winter

Tenerife in Winter

For travel this winter, Sophie Butler in Travel Telegraph says, "A good option is the Canary Islands, where temperatures remain consistently pleasant through the winter months. Average daily temperatures in Tenerife and Gran Canaria are in the low 70s, with around six hours of sunshine a day and about six rainy days a month."

For the most part, I agree with her. However, whilst it CAN rain, especially between November and March, these rainy days are more likely to come in mere pairs and if it happens, there are still plenty of places to see and things to do other than the beach.

It is also true that accommodation - even the type we live in permanently - is not cut out for dealing with cooler days. Nevertheless, it will never be as cold as it would have been in the UK! Provided you pack long trousers (such as sweat pants) for lounging indoors and a medium weight sweater or cardigan style jacket, this will be enough.

You will want those anyway for your trip up a possibly snow-tipped Mount Teide.

This might sound silly, but some wooly socks are also a good idea for sitting around on winter evenings, on account of those tiled and marble floors we have everywhere.

The other antidote to this, of course, is simply to keep active! If you are cold and it is wet outside, repair to the nearest hotel with a gym, sauna or steam bath.
