Bermuda tourism in February reaches the second lowest point of the year for good reason.

Bermuda weather in February is the coolest month of the year with average temperatures in the 60s Fahrenheit and rainfall of more than four inches.

The British territorial island 450 miles east of North Carolina in the Atlantic Ocean is a popular cruise and overnight vacation spot. Although it isn’t actually in the Caribbean Sea, it often is included in cruises to the Caribbean out of Boston, New York and other East Coast cities.

It is well-known for its British culture and history, high-quality golf courses and famous pink sand beaches. The pink sand beaches are popular in the summer when average high temperatures reach more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit. But February is a different story.

Temperatures in February


The average high temperature in Bermuda in February is 68 Fahrenheit or 20 Celsius, the Bermuda Weather Service reports.

The average low temperature is 60 Fahrenheit or about 16 Celsius. Together, these temperatures make February slightly colder than January and the coldest month of the year.

Daytime highs and nighttime lows combine to make seawater temperatures average about 65 Fahrenheit or about 18 Celsius. The seawater in February is too chilly for swimming for everyone except the most hardy of souls.


Rainfall in February


Unlike most Caribbean destinations, Bermuda does not have a distinct rainy season or dry season.

Rainfall averages about four and a half inches a month and varies only an inch or so each month. One exception is a spike in October during the annual Atlantic and Caribbean hurricane season.

February rainfall is right on the average. The number of days with rain during the month also is right on the average with about 15 total days.

Whether to Go in February


Bermuda's seawater temperature does not climb into the 70s Fahrenheit until May. Beach goers will find that Bermuda weather in February is less than ideal.

Golfers and other people who prefer land activities will find that February is an average month for rain but warm enough for long pants and jackets.

The fact that tourism reaches the second lowest point of the year suggests that February is not a popular month to visit because of the weather.
