Thinking of your summer holiday?

Well, June is the start of summer here in Tenerife and the weather is getting warmer and warmer day by day.

The average temperature in June in Tenerife is of 21°C, but the south of the island continues to be hotter than the north, and also much much drier.

The first half of the month is more quiet than the second half and the temperatures start to rise significantly towards the last days of June.

How is the weather in Tenerife in June

June brings a significant increase in sunshine hours per day: from around 8 hours of sunshine per day in Tenerife in May, the number jumps to 10 hours/day in June, which translates in more hours to spend on the beach sunbathing.

There have recently been years when Tenerife has seen an odd number of cloudy days during the month of June, but the weather was still warm and pleasant and you can still get a sunburn if you don't apply a sun cream, even when you don't see the sun shining.

The sea around Tenerife starts to get warm up in June as well, so you can explore other beaches in the north and natural pools that are not accessible during the other winter and spring season.

Tenerife South in June

The weather in Tenerife South is warm all year round, even in winter, this is why Tenerife is one of the best destinations for winter sun in Europe.

So in June, the weather in Tenerife south just keeps getting hotter and hotter, with very few chances of rain, as this is considered one of the driest months throughout the year.

However, summer in the Canary Islands, even in the south, is not as hot as some other places around Europe. For us this is a good thing, because it means that we can enjoy the gorgeous weather without having to hide from the sun constantly. You should also keep in mind that although you see temperatures of around 25 - 27°C, due to the geographical position of Tenerife, it will feel like it's hotter than you would expect at this temperature.

Starting from June, you can also notice a change in the type of visitors coming to the south of Tenerife: there will be more and more families with children around, as the school holidays begin throughout Europe. If during the winter months Tenerife has a lot of mature visitors, many of whom are retired, in summer the crowds get younger and the island starts to be more energized and more noisy than ever.

The perfect sunbathing weather - not too hot, not too cold, just perfect for a beach holiday. If you looking for mild temperatures, then come to Tenerife during the first 2 weeks of June. If you scorching hot is what you are after, then July or August might be more suitable for you.

Visit Tenerife's Pyramids - Piramides de Guimar

Did you know that Tenerife has its own set of pyramids?

Although not as big and famous as the ones in Egypt, the park Piramides de Guimar is interesting to visit if you want to see these structures and learn more about their history and how they came to be. The park is located in the valley in Guimar, so the weather can be tricky during winter. This is why June would be a perfect month to visit the park and admire all the endemic flora in their gardens.

Visit Santa Cruz de Tenerife - the island's capital

Spend time at the beach

A beach holiday in Tenerife is always a good idea and June makes no exception.

Playa la Tejita

We feel like Playa La Tejita is one of the most special and beautiful beaches in Tenerife. If the south starts to get too busy and crowded for your taste, we suggest that you take the bus or rent a car and drive to this part of the island, where you enjoy a lovely beach with great views towards Montana Roja. And if you are in the area, make a stop at Chiringuito Pirata for a drink and a cheap bite to eat.
