Tenerife

Volcanic, warm, verdant and utterly charming

Overview

Whether its Whale and Dolphin watching trips, hiking around Mount Teide National Park, taking a scenic drive up to Santa Cruz with its space age opera house or simply kicking back in the hotel bar or spa, Tenerife has something for everyone as you relax on fabulous Blue Flag beaches, picnic in the foothills of mountains and stargaze under the highest peak in Spain.

All of this can be enjoyed during the low season months in Tenerife.  And with over 18 first class 5* luxury properties to choose from, Tenerife has enjoyed a resurgence over the past 15 years which is why it is currently one of Europe’s finest, yet underrated low season island get aways.

When is the low season?

January, April, May, September and November are the months when Tenerife has the fewest visitors and can generally be considered to be low season months.

Why is it the low season?

The weather is pleasantly warm all year round however there is an increased chance of the odd shower in the low season months but the amount and occurrence of rainfall really is quite minimal.  Prices tend to be at their highest during the school holidays.

Why is it a great time to visit?

It’s mostly gloriously sunny and warm and you can stay in some of Europe’s finest luxury resorts in Costa Adeje (and the prices are incredible for the luxury experiences on offer). Take a look at the Gran Melia Palacio de Isora which is one of the finest properties on the island…

Whale & Dolphin Watching

Insider Tips

  • Enjoy the Spa at Aqua Club Termal - A fraction of the cost of hotel spa's and it's guarenteed to leave you feeling relaxed and replenished - steam rooms, sauna rooms, hydro-jets, floating pools...it has it all!
  • Hire a convertible for a day and drive up to Mount Teide. It costs from £50 and you can see so much as you climb through layers of cloud, pine forests, lava fields and eventually take the cable car to the peak.
  • Seek out some of the secluded beaches which are away from the main tourist resorts – these include Playa Bollullo, Playa del Pozo, Playa El Puertito.

Good To Know

  • The low season months are when the skies are the clearest and the weather is dry, sunny and warm.  Whilst some do swim in the sea, it can be on the cool/cold side in the winter months.  We recommend you choose a property with outdoor heated pools if swimming is an important part of your trip.
  • Overall though, whether you come for surfing, whale watching, crater hiking, Volcanic cable car rides or just a sunny island escape of salty air and sea breeze, the low season months in Tenerife will afford you the opportunity to stay in some of the most fabulous properties in Europe.
