I can bang on about this till I’m blue in the face, but people on travel forums often ask “is it warm enough to sunbathe in Puerto de la Cruz in February?”

Well, I’ll let the biggest sunworshipper I know answer that one – visually at least; although he’d probably have a damn good try verbally as well.

No Matter How Long I Lie Here, I Never Seem to Turn a Nice Shade of Brown

These were taken this morning – when the official Spanish Met Office site was showing cloud and rain.

Trouble is he's so white that he becomes a bright glare in strong sunlight

    Well being a ‘native’ they get used to the year round sun!!
    I have been going to Puerto for many years often in February and always return with a lovely tan.

    We’ve had a second home in Puerto for 24 years and are often asked the same question about the weather at this time of year. We’ve many photos of the beautiful sunny days we’ve had – the cloudy ones too!
    Of course you can sunbathe in February – maybe not every day but more than you can in the UK over a typical summer season!
    When we’re in the UK I look at http://www.meteovistazo.es/ most days. This is a weather station in Santa Ursula with webcams pointing up the coast towards Puerto and Teide. This is more reliable than the Spanish meteorological info and really proves how much sun there is.

      Peope don’t seem to believe it. Half the time they’re more willing to believe somebody who’s never spent any time in Puerto than people like us who either live here, or spend a lot of time here.

      “Of course you can sunbathe in February – maybe not every day but more than you can in the UK over a typical summer season!” That’s a perfect way of putting it Peter, thanks.
