What’s the weather like in Benidorm in February?
Benidorm’s on southeast Spain’s Mediterranean coast, and things are getting warmer in February after lower temperatures in January, although winter here’s still very mild. You’ll get winter sun with not much rain if you’re going at this time, which is much quieter than the busy summer.
Benidorm’s surrounded by mountains, which makes its weather even better. The Serra Gelada mountains to the east shelter the city from winds, so it has warmer and clearer weather than other places nearby. The south-facing beach means Benidorm makes the most of its shorter sunshine hours in February, but it’s also the month you’re most likely to see a sand storm blow in from the Sahara Desert.
The typical high temperature in Benidorm during February is 16ºC, which drops to quite a chilly 6ºC at night. The average sea temperature’s 15ºC, while humidity’s low. Rainfall’s usually 39mm over seven rainy days and you can expect six hours of sunshine from 11 hours of daylight each day. UV levels will be moderate, while sunset’s around 6.20pm at the start of the month and gradually gets later.
Things to Do
Benidorm’s two main beaches are Playa de Levante and Playa de Poniente, and you’ll certainly get the chance to chill out on them in February. The cooler temperatures are ideal for golf, which is very popular in Benidorm. Head into the Serra Gelada mountains for some hiking or explore the Costa Blanca countryside on a 4×4 safari, while the buzzing nightlife’s one of the city’s major draws.
