Location and Climate
Tenerife is the largest of the seven Canary Islands, which form this Atlantic Ocean archipelago.
It is official. N.A.S.A. (the American Space Institute) recently stated that Canary Islands is the best and most delightful climate in the world. Tenerife enjoys year round sunshine, which means you can be sunbathing in January, Golfing in February and at anytime of the year enjoy an enhanced lifestyle that only a warm sunny climate can provide. No more heavy winter coats, scarves and gloves, only perhaps a light sweater for that stroll along the sea front after the beach barbeque in December. There is no ‘rainy season’ no ‘hurricane season’, just continuous ‘sunshine season’.
Its climate is precisely a reason for visiting Tenerife at any time of the year. I is always spring, with an annual average of 23 degrees centigrade and minimal variations between maximum and minimum. Tenerife lies in the transition area between the subtropical and temperate zones, slightly to the north of the Tropic of Cancer. It benefits from the so-called Canaries cold-stream, which has an extraordinary mildening effect on its climate and from the refreshing trade winds, so greatly appreciated by seafarers. Within the context of these mild conditions, the island has a surprising variety of microclimates for every taste, within a small distance of each other.
The wide variety of climates and landscapes in Tenerife is matched by a wealth of ecosystems, each with its own characteristic flora and fauna.
The south where Villa Monaco is situated is drier and warmer, with longer periods of sunshine; the north is more humid and its climate even milder.
Tenerife’s year round sunshine record means that the island is always in demand.
