Tenerife in August

Brilliant Bougainvillea

Brilliant Bougainvillea

Visitors to Tenerife will have seen these amazing and huge - anywhere from 1 to 12 m (3 to 40 ft.) tall - displays of Bougainvillea all over the island, but this thorny ornamental vine is native to South America from Brazil west to Peru and south to southern Argentina. The bright coloured parts are bracts: the actual flower is small and generally white.

Tenerife features the lowest temperature 'difference' between summer and winter for anywhere in the world. The minimum and maximum annual average air temperatures in Tenerife are about 15C in winter and 25C in summer.

There's just 1 day with rain on average in Tenerife in August, but this means any amount of rain from a short sharp shower upwards. Better than the 13 days in the UK.
