WHEN TO GO
With its edge-of-the-tropics setting, Tenerife gets a generous supply of sun – year round. Take a holiday to Tenerife between June and August and you’ll be treated to up to 11 hours of sunshine a day. Summer temperatures in the south can soar to the low 30s, and in winter, you’ll rarely see temperatures below 19˚C. That said, go north and things are a little more humid, with occasional showers thrown into the mix.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Spanish nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment. For the latest health and safety info, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/spain/health
