Weather end of Feb?


Can someone tell me if the weather is warm enough to sunbathe by the pool or is jeans and light jumper wear more appropriate for this time of year?

I will be staying the last week in February.

Thank you

If you are lucky, in a sheltered spot you may be able to sunbathe.

We did one January.

BUT, on a night it was freezing cold.

Locals were swathed in scarves around their heads etc.

End of February may be slightly better weather.

Agree with Amethyst.....like all countries that border the Mediterranean, winter weather is hit and miss where rain, wind and the temperature are concerned.

Anticipate the worst and hope for the best.....that's what we'll be doing on our next Mediterranean trip in a couple of weeks time.

If you want to check out some related old postings just type 'February weather' into the <<Search>> box. The results will vary as people tend to typically report as they find, so keep your fingers crossed for your visit.

Just to be clear on what I wrote, and as Amethyst said, even on fine and warm days it will get progressively colder once the sun begins to drop from mid-afternoon.

A number of years ago i popped in to a travel shop without having decided where i wanted to go for an end of January break after the extended Hogmanay celebrations;-)

Fell in with my birthday,too.


I said to the travel advisor

"A 7 day break AI, not too espensive ,Sunny climes please!"

She hammered away at the keyboard for a bit then said..

Oh There are some good deals for Tunisia from Glasgow! "

I replied "anywhere a wee bit warmer?"

She said " Tunisia is very hot ! "

I said "i know that been many times but we are talking Jan/Feb here"

We ended up in Tenerife !

A few years ago (Alan here will verify this)

We went to Sousse in November/December

We managed to sunbathe near every day, although the sun went to bed mid afternoon.

January February historically will be a wee bit cooler am sure.

It will be chilly and likely windy at night

Good luck with some sunshine though !

We have also mid March and it was hot day times
