Weather in late March...

I realise nothing is set in stone with regards to weather but having only done "summer" holidays for the last 10/12 yrs I was wondering what temps I might expect during the last week of March - we're staying in Costa Adeje @ Sensatori but will be looking at going out, probably up to Teide

Thanks in advance

This link below show last years temperatures as measured at the south airport.


Remember that the lowest temperatures are usual between 4 and 6am - so evenings are generally around 20 degrees when out and about.

If you are only used to summer temperatures you will notice a difference.

The nights are much cooler and although the temperatures might seem high there is often a cool breeze.

The sun goes down about 6.45 .

As you say nothing is set in stone and you can get very warm days or quite cool it and it can be quite mixed.

We have been there for March the last 6 years and have had all sorts of weather from very bad storms to glorious sunshine so I really don't think anyone can give you an answer.i

It really is just luck

Hi, we often visit Tenerife in February or March. This year the first week of March is Carnival. Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz are the best places to see, and take part, in the best carnivals outside South America.

Back to the weather. Shorts and tee shirts during the day, warm enough to spend from 10 to 4 on the beach or around the pool. You will need high factor sun cream, it may be too hot mid afternoon, without some shade. At night cropped trousers and a light jumper or shawl. You won't need heating, warm enough to sit outside in one of the many street-side bars and restaurants.

Mt Tiede is the highest mountain in Spain, and the third highest volcano in the world. It can feel cold there, so wear layers of clothing. You will need walking shoes. The sun is also very strong, so take a hat and high factor sun cream. The air is very thin, so take care if you have heart or breathing problems.

Thanks, that's probably pretty much what I expected I guess with the Canaries being a year round destination ;-)

I have been to Maspalomas in Gran Canaria in January before but that was way back in 1999 I think and the memory ain't what it used to be! Seem to recall warm enough to sit on the beach (the mention of the wind brought that memory back!!)

Looking forward to it anyway :-)
