  • No rain here on this side of Tenerife.  We have clear blue skies on the coast and a bit of cloud cover over the hills.  It doesn't rain often here, but look on the bright side, if it does it is a lot warmer than UK rain!

  • i find the weather in los gigantes far better than the rest of tenerife, the cliffs seem to hold the rain clouds back!!!  i have seen the weather forecast before showing rain and it has never reached us!  but, i must say i have been in las americas in the rain and rang back to los gigantes to be told its fine there!  so never worry - we're the last on the rainy list!!!

  • We drove up to Puerto de la Cruz just after Christmas. It was cloudy, windy and rather chilly. The Trade Winds were blowing dark clouds inland which had to rise as they approached the hills outside the town and as they rose further they deposited rain all over the north of the island. By the time those clouds reached Los Gigantes in the south west they would have shed most of their moisture.

    I read recently that as a consequence of global warming, the Trade Winds would permanently change direction resulting in black clouds crossing the south of the island, heading north and raining all the way to Puerto de la Cruz which will become a lot dryer and warmer.  And unfortunately, Los Gigantes will become cloudy, windy and rather chilly- but not for the next three weeks!

  • We have just returned after 3 weeks and apart from a few days later on when it was a little breezy, the weather was perfect. around 22 - 24 degrees.  We were lucky enough to miss the bad weather on 18th December but also lucky to see the snow on Teide which it left behind.

    We had relatives staying in Torviscas and each time we visited them it was cloudy and a lot cooler there.

    Don't worry - it will be lovely

    Have a great one

  • Lets face it, rubbish weather in Los Gigantes is far better than rubbish weather at any time in the UK! ;D

    We visit every February/March and do not mind the rain because it is warm, and lays the dust!! Not that we have had much in the 20+ years we have been visiting. ;)

    Looking forward to being there next week 8)

  • Pack your swim wear, shorts and suntan cream for daytime.  You may need a fleece in the evening and possibly long trousers if you like to sit outside.  Also pack a lightweight rain coat - but you probably won't need it.  Have a good hol.
