Tenerife in April

Bosque del Cedro (Cedar woods) in La Gomera

Gomera Forest

Do you remember in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, where, on first sighting the wide river in Nottingham forest, Azim (Morgan Freeman) declares, "In my dreams alone, I imagined such a place." Those words sum up my feelings when I came upon this stream, running through La Gomera's Bosque del Cedro (Cedar woods): the laurisilva - laurel rain forest - which, in the Tertiary period had covered almost all of Europe and extended across the Mediterranean region. Today, La Gomera's Bosque del Cedro is the best example left of these forests, only small portions of which remain in the Canary Islands and, is part of the Garajonay National Park, recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Tenerife Weather in April

Tenerife features the lowest temperature 'difference' between summer and winter for anywhere in the world. The minimum and maximum annual average air temperatures in Tenerife are about 15C in winter and 24C in summer.

April Averages Tenerife UK
Daily hours of sunshine 7.7 4.8
Daytime temperature C 19 11.7
Sea temperature C 18 -
Days with rain 3 10.1
In April, you should enjoy an average of 7.7 daily hours of sunshine in Tenerife (in contrast to an optimistic 4.8 hours in England).

The average daytime temperature in April in Tenerife is listed as 19 degrees centigrade. This is, of course, an average for the entire island. And, no matter where you are on the island, it is sure to be better than the English equivalent, given as a maximum of 11.7 degrees centigrade.

The sea temperature in Tenerife in April averages at 18C.

Although there are an average of 3 days with rain in April, this means any amount of rain from a short sharp shower. Better than the 10.1 days in the UK.

Tenerife Fiestas in April

On a Saturday in mid-April is the now annual Ruta del Camino del Hermano Pedro, whether for religious reasons or for an unique view of the countryside, this little 16 kilometre stroll, passing though Vilaflor, Granadilla, Charco del Pino, San Isidro and El Médano could make a different and interesting day out.

Easter, the majority of years, falls in April. Celebrations for Semana Santa (Holy Week) begin on Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday). Jueves Santo / Holy Thursday (April 21st, 2011) and Viernes Santo / Good Friday (April 22, 2011) are Public Holidays.

Whilst every town and village will have it’s own versions, one of the main events on the island during Easter is the re-enactment of the Via Crucis (Stations of the Cross or Way of the Cross), the depiction of the Passion of Jesus that is performed in Adeje every Good Friday. See: Easter Week Dates Tenerife, which gives Good Friday dates until 2050.
