The weather in Tenerife
The weather in Tenerife is pleasant and mild. For Easter Week 2020, which is celebrated in Tenerife from April 5th to 12th, average temperatures are expected to be around 20ºC.
By the way, have you heard of Tenerife’s microclimates? This unique feature of the island allows travelers to sunbathe on the beach at the same time as adventurers dressed in coats climb to Teide’s summit. Tenerife is an island of contrasts so you can always choose what you like best.
Where to go on your Easter holidays in Tenerife
It is important that you know where to go on your Easter holidays in Tenerife, since the island’s contrasts mean that there is an ideal spot for everyone.
The north of Tenerife
The north of Tenerife is a leafy and green area, with a multitude of culture and historical sites to visit such as Puerto de la Cruz, La Orotava, Garachico… For the more adventurous, the Cave of the Wind is the place to visit because it allows you to explore the inside of the island.
The south of Tenerife
The south of Tenerife is full of beaches and volcanic landscapes. Arona, Adeje, Guía de Isora and Santiago del Teide are some of the places to visit if you are looking for paradisiacal beaches or volcanic enclaves like Chinyero. If you packed a surfboard (if not don’t worry, you can always rent one) then you have an appointment with El Médano, a beach that hosts world windsurfing championships.
What to see during Holy Week in Tenerife
If your trip to the Canary Islands coincides with Easter Week lies in Tenerife, you’ll want to make the most of your time. Here are some of the places you should visit during your stay.
Punta de Teno
Punta de Teno is one of the places most recommended by travelers, thanks in part to the views of La Gomera and Los Gigantes. Your access is restricted to preserve the environment, so check the schedules well before visiting.
San Cristóbal de La Laguna
As a World Heritage Site, this is always worth a visit. However, La Laguna lives Easter Week with special passion, so if you are interested in seeing the processions or Easter celebrations you should visit.
We couldn’t end this list without talking about another World Heritage Site. If you haven’t visited the Teide National Park yet, Easter Week is the perfect opportunity to experience its volcanic landscape, which seems more Martian than terrestrial because of its reddish tones.
