Average Sunshine Hours and Rain
There are just seven hours of sunshine in February and it rains on average 13 days this month. Since there are only 28 days in February, this is almost half of the month. However, the average total rainfall is just 75mm (2.95 inches), which spread out over 13 days is just 5.8mm (0.23 inches), meaning it's not as much rain as it appears. In actuality, much of the rain this month comes over a period of a day or two, while the rest of the month remains sunny.
Average Sea Temperature
Swimming is generally out of the question in February as the average sea temperature is only 16°C (61°F). This shouldn't discourage you from going to the beach, however. With plenty of sun and comfortable temperatures, it is the perfect time to take advantage of beaches that are less crowded during the off-season. It may be too cold to work on your tan, but the peacefulness of an empty beach will more than make up for it.
The humidity levels in February can change drastically from one day to the next, ranging from 40% up to 90%. On average, the humidity levels are around 70%, which is fairly comfortable.

Things to do in Fuengirola in February
The Ralli Museum is a must for any art lover. The museum offers ten rooms of collections of contemporary and surrealist Spanish artists, including the likes of Salvador Dali and Picasso, although the work done by lesser known artists should not be overlooked as it is equally impressive. There is also work done by European artists, such as Miro, Chagall and Gentilini. The creations range from paintings to sculptures, so there is plenty to see. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM and is about a 25-30 minute drive from the city centre. Admission to the museum is free.
If you are a history buff, the Finca Del Secretario should be on your list of places to see. This area of Roman ruins was uncovered in the 1970's during railway construction.

Visiting the ruins is free of charge and is about a 25 minute walk from the city centre.
