Geographical influencesPlaya de las Americas is on the south coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, between the resorts of Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje. Towns in this part of Tenerife are slightly warmer and drier than places in the north. This is because Mount Teide, the huge volcano in the centre of Tenerife, shields the area from some of the wind and rain that can reach the island from a northerly direction. Warm air that sometimes blows west across from the Sahara desert is cooled by the Atlantic and can bring a refreshing dip in temperatures during July.
