Tenerife in September

Roque Cinchado

Roque Cinchado

You might remember that this rock, the Roque Cinchado, used to appear on the backside of the old 1,000 Peseta note in Spain, before it switched to the Euro. It’s just one of the curiously shaped Roques de Garcia near the Parador hotel in the Parque Nacional del Teide. This view, with Mount Teide in the background is probably the most photographed location in Tenerife, but no site about Tenerife would ever be complete without photos of Teide, which is why I have chosen this as the featured image of the month for September.

Tenerife Weather in September

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.

September Averages Tenerife UK
Daily hours of sunshine 8.5 4.5
Daytime temperature C 24.3 17.5
Sea temperature C 23 -
Days with rain 1 10.2
In September, you should enjoy an average of 8.5 daily hours of sunshine in Tenerife (in contrast to an optimistic 4.5 hours in England).

The average daytime temperature in September in Tenerife is listed as 24.3 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 17.5 degrees centigrade (barring the odd heatwave).

The sea temperature in Tenerife in September averages at 23C.

The average is 1 day with rain in September. Better than the 10.2 days in the UK.

Tenerife Fiestas in September

The annual Feria de Pinolere (Pinolere Crafts Fair) at the Pinolere Ethnographic Park, La Orotava, is usually held on the first weekend in September.

On September 7th, is the annual Romería del Socorro (part of the Fiesta de San Pedro) from the Plaza de San Pedro in Güimar to the Playa del Socorro.

September 8th is the main date of the Fiestas de la Luz in Los Silos, in honour of the patroness of the town, Nuestra Señora de la Luz, celebrated since 1722. The day starts at 10 a.m. with a mass, Eucharist is at 12 mid-day, followed by a Romeria (procession through the streets). These fiestas also include the curious annual, floral offering made by divers to an underwater image off the coast.

The Fiestas del Santísimo Cristo de La Laguna are held every September 14th in the city of La Laguna, which turns out to show its devotion to the Santísimo Cristo (Holy Christ), one of the most venerated icons on the island. Parades, processions, street parties and fireworks displays are part of the celebrations.

La Librea (Livery) in Tegueste takes place in September, once every 3 years and is due in 2011, 2014, 2017, 2020. It represents the defence of the island against the continuous attacks and plundering of pirates that took place during the 17th century and, despite being a fair way inland, involves a mock battle between "goodies" and "baddies" in ox-drawn carts made to look like galleons.

September also sees the annual Ruta Nocturna del Hermano Pedro (an evening walk to Saint Hermano Pedro‘s cave, at the end of the runway at Tenerife South Airport.) For inscriptions, ring the tourist office in El Médano on 922 17 60 02.

The annual fiestas in the village of El Palmar, Buenavista del Norte, begin on the third weekend of September each year, on the Friday night and include the unique dance of Las Libreras on day 2, the Saturday night. The 10-day event culminates on the 4th Sunday of the month with the Día de la Trilla (Threshing Day).
