What’s the weather like in Playa de Las Americas in October?If you fancy a luxury escape to the Canary Islands, away from the busy summer crowds, then why not visit beautiful Tenerife in October? The Playa de Las Americas weather in October is extremely pleasant, with warm temperatures about the same as they are in June, July and August. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
Geographical influencesHot air that occasionally blows across from Africa’s Sahara desert to Tenerife is cooled by the Atlantic Ocean. This can bring a welcome dip in temperatures during warm months like October. Playa de Las Americas is on Tenerife’s south coast. Towns in this part of the island are slightly warmer and drier than resorts in the north. This is because the huge volcano in the centre of Tenerife, Mount Teide, protects the area from some of the wind and rain that can reach the island from a northerly direction.
