Weather Averages for Antigua in February
Averages for Antigua in February
February is much the same as January when it comes to temperatures in Antigua. You’re looking at a maximum temperature og 27°C and a low of 22°C. February is also the driest month of the year. You can expect a mere 37 mm of rain during the month, ideal weather for relaxing on the beach or participating in some water sports.
Towards the end of February, Antiguans celebrate Wadadli Day at the Botanical Gardens in St John’s. This is a festival of arts, crafts, entertainment, food, games and music; the ideal place to try out some local dishes.
If you’re interested in Ecology, you’ll want to join Eli’s Eco Tour. Climb aboard a 52 foot powercat and discover more about the history of the area and the local wildlife. You’ll have the chance to go snorkelling and if you’re lucky you might see some of the local turtles, stingrays and barracuda. Those who don’t want to snorkel can explore a cave, walk along a nature trail or just relax on-board.
One of the best restaurants on Antigua can be found in Dickenson Bay. The Bay House is part of the Trade Winds Hotel and is popular with local residents as well as tourists.
It’s said that Antigua has 365 beaches – one for every day of the year. The Catamaran Hotel at Falmouth Harbour is ideally positioned so you can step straight out of your room and onto the beach.
The Buccaneer Beach Club is a highly recommended place to stay in Dickenson Bay. It’s just five minutes drive away from the Antiguan Capital of St John’s and right next to McKinnons Pond, a wetland birding area. All the suites and cottages have fully equipped kitchens but there are plenty of restaurants and bars close by.
