General Info

The vulcanic island Tenerife (span. Tenerife) is the largest of the Canary Islands and belongs to Spain. It is about 80 km long and up to 50 km wide with an area of 2034,38 square kilometers. Approximatly 1 million inhabitants make it the most populated spanish island. The capital is Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the locals are called Tinerfeños!

Just like on the other islands of the Canary Archipelagos mild temperatures are to be found on Tenerife due to the North-East-Passat winds developing south of the Horse Latitudes. Those tropical fallwinds are also responsible for the so called Azoric High Pressure Front that is holding over Madeira in the wintertime but moves further north towards the Acores in the summer. Especially during daytime the air filled with water vapour rises from the sea to the peaks of the Teide.

Clouds form at about 1000 up to 1500 meters, when they reach the forests full of laurel and pines they produce a constant drizzle. This is the great advantage for the agriculture in the northern part of the island that stays rather dry during the summer month. Temporarely even phases of high temperature (Kalima) are to be expected, reaching more than 35 degrees.
