    Corsica Weather for February 2019

    What's the Weather Like in Corsica in February

    Corsica is a Mediterranean island that's part of France, but lies closer to the coast of Italy. The island is a year-round popular tourist destination thanks to its rugged mountains, beautiful beaches and overall stunning scenery. As a result of its location, Corsica enjoys a Mediterranean climate, where summers are hot and sunny and winters are cooler.

    Temperature

    February marks the end of winter on the island but the weather won't start to warm up until spring arrives. Average temperatures remain as low as January, at 8°C, with highs also staying at 13°C, however the temperatures are still mild enough to enjoy walking through the city, to shop or sightsee. Nights are still cold at this time of year and tourists are advised to pack some warm layers and a coat. The average low at this time of year is just 3°C.

    Sea Temperature

    The water is not yet warm enough for swimming either, with an average sea temperature of just 13°C but other beach-related activities are still offered.

    Rainfall

    Rainfall levels are quite high in February compared to summer months, which is worth considering when planning your holiday to Corsica. Average rainfall levels are around 70mm which falls over 14 wet days.

    Clouds

    Days are also quite overcast at this time of year, with a 20% chance of clouds.

    Sunshine Hours

    Winter means shorter days in Corsica and holiday makers will see much less sunshine than the summer. There's an average of 5 sunny hours a day throughout the month. This shouldn't put off travelers though, as there is still plenty of things to do when the sun goes down.

    Corsica will be much quieter at this time of year, but for those who don't mind the cold weather and the chance of rain, the relaxed atmosphere can be a welcome change to the bustling summer months.

    Things to Do in Corsica in February

    A Tumbera: Foire du Porc Coureur

    Holiday makers can get a true taste of Corsica's culture in February at the annual 'A Tumbera: Foire du Porc Coureur' festival. Taking place on the first weekend of the month at the Col Saint-Roch, the fair is dedicated to celebrating the pig, an important part of Corsican history and economy. Its theme is pork and all the different pork-based preparations in Corsican cooking. It is an event not to be missed by those who know and love the pig or by those who are eager to learn about the unique Corsican lifestyle.

    Maison Bonaparte

    The weather can be unpredictable at this time of the year, but Corsica has plenty of indoor sights for those cold or wet days. One must-see attraction is the Maison Bonaparte, the ancestral home of the Bonaparte family which is located in the capital of Ajaccio. French political leader Napolean Bonaparte was born and raised on the island and was famously noted to say: "On Corsica I was given life, and with that life I was also given a fierce love for this my ill-starred homeland". Tourists can find out more about him and his family and see how they lived, as the house has been preserved as it would have looked back then. With an entrance price of just 7 euros, it's a great value day out for the whole family.
