Tenerife in Feb?

Hi,

Quick question - has anyone been to Tenerife in Feb?

We're wondering what the climate is like and whether places are closed because its off season?

We have a 16 month old so would like to do some relaxing by the pool/beach, and a bit of sight seeing with a car possibly.

Cheers,

Zebs

Tenerife is an all year round destination to holiday.

I have been in December, September, April - the weather was fine each time. Once in December there was a thunderstorm, but that was only one evening out of the week.

We were in Lanzarote last February - and the weather was great. Sunny during the day - a little chilly once the sun went down, but only enough to wear a cardigan/light sweatshirt.

Usually the temps around that time of year 22/25 degrees ,that said at the moment reports of temps 30+ so you could be in for a real HOTTY .The nights can feel cooler with day time temps so i would suggest you take a lightweight coat .

Also remember the north of the island can be a few degrees cooler ,as you dont actually state where you are staying

Hi Zebs

We were in Feb 2007 there and wil leave Jan.31 again for Tenerife. The climate is mild (20 - 25 °C) spring time, evenings are colder.....you need to take a jumper with you.

We did some sunbathing....but it wasn't warm enough that you needed a cool down in the swimmingpool. In our hotel was only a small part of the swimmingpool heated and some childeren where playing in it....

Places are not closed because of off season. All year round they have tourists. We saw young families, sports people (lots of joggers)....

When we arrived our first time, we went around 4 o'clock to the beach for a cocktail....and you saw already a lot of people, nice clothed, to go for dinner....and that's early....When we have holiday's or go to the more Southern parts of Europe, peolple have late dinners....but there not. There are also a lot of elderly people.

But we enjoyed our stay there (39 and 40). We rented a car and drove around the island. Nature is very beautifull and quiet different. If you drive to the North or visit the Natural reserve of the Tiede don't forget to take something warm with you, we forgot it ;-)

Hoepfully you had somethingon this comment !

Have fun !

Hi Tenerife is a lovely winter holiday island, We have had many holidays there in February and always come back with a lovely tan. On the beach or around the pool from 10ish to 3ish. Shorts and tee shirts during the day, long trousers and perhaps a jumper at night. Certainly warm enough at night to eat under the stars. This year has been even warmer. All the bars and restaurants will be open it realy is a busy time of the year. Many people tate a long winter break in Tenerife to escape the wet and cold back home in the UK. February is carnival time from 21st to 28th, it is a lovely time to be there especially if you take part.
