Averages for Playa del Ingles in February
Playa del Inglés is a popular beach resort located on the south coast of Spain’s Gran Canaria. It’s well known for its drinking culture and vibrant nightlife, but the town caters to everyone, with plenty of activities for families and couples looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday.
Along with January, February is one of Playa del Inglés’ coldest months, with temperatures averaging roughly the same: that’s lows of 16.4 degrees and highs of 20.6 degrees. The latter part of the month may be a little warmer by a degree or two.
Rainfall is usually a bit heavier than in January, but it shouldn’t be too noticeable. There’s still only around 3 days of rainfall during the month, but visitors may find these downpours more intense. However, precipitation in Playa del Inglés is such a rarity that many travellers won’t even see a tiny drizzle.
February is a great time to visit Playa del Inglés as it sees the Maspalomas Carnival come to town. It’s one of the area’s biggest annual events and is eagerly awaited by both locals and visitors. Each night for an entire week there’s parades, floats and hundreds of loud and outrageous costumes to be seen. The Yumbo Centre plays host to a number of live music acts and there’s a different musical theme each year. It’s not to be missed.
For some hilarious evening entertainment be sure to check out the Sparkles Showbar. Located in the Yumbo Centre this comedy drag show is sure to have visitors in stitches with dance numbers and variety acts. There’s a show 7 nights a week from 8pm, but get there early to take advantage of some complimentary pre-show shots, and get a few cocktails in before the karaoke starts at 9pm.
The Liberty Apartments offer accommodation from just £23 per night. All rooms have kitchenettes and private balconies and the complex features a swimming pool (and pool bar), terrace and tennis court.
