Tenerife is a haven for those who like good temperatures and sun all year round. Due to its positions off the coast of Africa and as near to the equator as most European islands get, Tenerife enjoys a climate that tends not to drop below the mid to late teens, with average temperatures well into the late 20's by midsummer. Car hire in Tenerife is popular due to Mount Teide’s natural popularity, and if you are hiring a car in Tenerife, the island has an array of established resorts such as Playa de Las Americas, as well as a vibrant capital in Santa Cruz.
