What's the Weather like in Gran Canaria in February?

Is Gran Canaria Good In February?

February is one of the best times of the year to visit Gran Canaria,  It's great for people who love clear blue skies and sunshine but aren't big fans of the bustling crowds and high temperatures that the summer months attract.

How Hot Is Gran Canaria In February?

During this month, the average temperature for the island is 18°C, created by average highs of 21°C at the warmest part of the day and average lows of 15°C overnight.

How Wet Is Gran Canaria In February?

The island only has 24mm of precipitation which is divided across three wet days in February.

Average Sunshine Hours 

With an average of seven daily hours of sunshine in February, you'll always get plenty of chances to work on your tan.

How Warm Is The Sea in February?

With so much sunshine and such little cloud coverage, February is a great time to hit the beach in Gran Canaria. At this time of year, the average sea temperature for the waters around the island is 19°C - perfect for a dip!


Over the course of a typical February in Gran Canaria, wind speeds range between light and moderate breezes.


Dust sand storms blown over from Africa (locally referred to as calimas and the more severe siroccos) are a common occurrence throughout the year. These don't pose any real danger, but they can increase the temperature by up to 10°C and cause low visibility and general discomfort for everyone.

February 3 , 2020 saw a high of 30.4 at La Palma Airport , very hig for February n Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria Hotels in February

Gloria Palace Royal Hotel and Spa

Gloria Palace Royal Hotel and Spa is an excellent choice of accommodation for those who want to stay close to the beach, being located only 200m away from Playa de Amadores, one of the most famous and beautiful beaches on the island. While the walk down to the coast is a bit steep for some, the proximity to the crystal blue waters more than makes up for it.

The complex itself is built from natural stone and offers double rooms, standard suites and luxury suites all of which come with superb sea views and free access to the spa circuit.

Within this complex guests can also enjoy two swimming pools (one of which is an infinity pool that is heated during winter), sunbathing terrace with free loungers and parasols, exclusive nude sunbathing area and an outdoor gym.

To keep the kids entertained, there is a kids club, two freshwater swimming pools, daytime organised entertainment, games and a mini disco in the Lounge Bar, so they'll never get bored.

When it comes to dining, there are three restaurants onsite one buffet, one a la carte and one snack bar each of which serves a huge variety of local Canarian cuisine and international dishes with new specials on offer every day.

Eden Apartments

For something more affordable, consider staying at the Eden Apartments. This complex is friendly, cosy and can be found at the top of the hill in the resort of Puerto Rico a quiet resort located in the south of the island.

Accommodation here comes in the form of very modern one- and two-bedroom apartments which can sleep up to four or six guests, respectively making them perfect for families and groups who want to keep close together. Each apartment comes well equipped with a full kitchen.

Within the complex you'll find plenty to keep the whole family entertained, such as an adults' swimming pool, children's pool, solarium with sunbeds and parasols, rooftop adults-only sunbathing terrace, full daily entertainment programme and a bar which offers great value-for-money happy hours and live evening entertainment.

For even more goings on, the Europa Centre is just a five minute walk away from the Eden Apartments complex, which is full of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, supermarkets and shops.

Hotel NH Las Palmas Playa Las Canteras

If you're more of a city slicker, check out Hotel NH Las Palmas Playa Las Canteras. This hotel primarily caters for business people, but it's a cheap place to stay for a holiday in Gran Canaria's capital, too. But don't let the cheap price deter you the accommodation here is superb, with all of the 67 standard rooms well equipped with satellite TV, mini bars and comfortable double beds.

Family rooms come with an additional single bed and the option of adding a cot. Within the hotel you'll find a small restaurant which serves international cuisine, a bar with sea views, free WiFi throughout and outdoor parking. The only downside is that there is no swimming pool onsite, but Playa Las Canteras beach is literally just steps away, so this shouldn't bother you too much.

Better yet, because you're in the centre of the city, you'll be surrounded by cultural attractions, bars, restaurants, cafes, clubs, supermarkets and shopping centres at this hotel.

Best Western Plus Hotel Cantur

The Best Western Plus Hotel Cantur is another hotel found in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, but this has more of a typical hotel feel. Accommodation comes in the form of spacious standard rooms with air conditioning and free WiFi access, junior suites with sea views and private Jacuzzis, and presidential suites with separate lounges and two bedrooms each.

Foodies will love the Gauguin Restaurant which serves up a fusion of international cuisine and the best Spanish wines, whilst the Pool Bar is a great option for a more casual snack. Other facilities within the hotel include swimming pool, solarium and fitness centre, with a value-for-money hotel-owned spa just a 60m walk from the hotel. There is a golf course within 3km of the hotel, plus bars, restaurants, nightclubs, shops and supermarkets just around the corner. 

Beaches in Gran Canaria for February

Playa de Puerto Rico

Playa de Puerto Rico is one of the finest beaches in Mogan. This man-made bay is comprised of 250m of soft golden sands imported from the Sahara Desert which are peppered with sun loungers, parasols and visitors soaking up the sunshine. Thanks to the harbour which flanks one side of the bay, this beach is completely protected by strong waves, so the sea is always calm enough for swimming in.

The two artificial breakwaters also ensure that the shore is protected from rough seas, even when conditions are incredibly unfavourable. Backing the beach is a long promenade offering everything from international restaurants and cocktail bars to small minimarkets and tourist shops selling beach essentials.

Puerto de Mogan

If you prefer quiet beaches, you'll love Puerto de Mogan. This beach is the youngest in Gran Canaria and features thick, golden sand which stretches for 200m along the coast. Just like Playa de Puerto Rico, Puerto de Mogan is also well protected on one side by a harbour wall and a rocky breakwater on the other side, which means the shore never sees rough waves.

The beach is lined by a small promenade full of local fish restaurants which serve up delicacies caught that very day. You'll find basic beach facilities here, such as sun loungers, parasols, showers, toilets and some water sports, with plenty of bars, restaurants, tourist shops, holiday accommodation and a weekly market further inland.  

Things to do in Gran Canaria in February

Sprit of the Sea

If you'd rather stay above sea level, a boat trip on board the Spirit of the Sea is another fantastic way to explore the waters around Gran Canaria.

This excursion company takes groups of up to 15 people out on a glass bottom boat where you can peer through the huge window in search of whales and dolphins.

Because the staff are so experienced, they know the best places to go to spot the cetaceans, so chances are good there'll be at least one sighting when you're on board.
