Visitors will discover that Anguilla in February has one of the lowest risks of rain for the year along with temperatures in the low 80s Fahrenheit.

This quiet Caribbean island just 7.5 miles off the coast of St. Maarten is one of the best beach destinations in the Caribbean. But getting there requires flying or cruising to St. Maarten and then taking a ferry across the water.

So the island remains a pleasant side trip for anyone visiting St. Maarten or anyone with a little more ambition who wants to go to Anguilla for a full week or more.

Temperatures in February

The average high temperature for Anguilla in February is about 84 degrees Fahrenheit or 29 Celsius, according to area reports from the Meteorological Service of Netherland Antilles and Aruba.

The average low temperature hovers around 74 Fahrenheit or 23 Celsius, mostly at night. Seawater temperatures stay between the daily high and low air temperatures.

February is the second coolest month of the year after January. Temperatures grow each month until reaching a peak of 89 Fahrenheit or 32 Celsius from July through September.

Rainfall in February

February is part of a dry season that goes from January through July. The month averages only two inches of rain, which is the lowest point of the year along with March and June.

In contrast, rainfall averages more than six inches in November at the end of the Caribbean hurricane season.

Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 until Nov. 30. For most islands, the peak month for rain is September. For Anguilla and St. Maarten, it’s usually November.

Whether to Go in February

Eastern Caribbean cruises are popular from December through February for northerners who want to get away from cold and snow. December is the warmest of the three, while February is the driest.

Anyone with the freedom to choose when they go to Anguilla is better off with March or April for the sake of warmer temperatures and only a bit more rain.
