Ok I'm thinking of taking a week off work in February and the plan is to go somewhere Spanish because it's a) hot and b) I can practice my spanish.

So right now my options are canary islands, the mainland or somewhere like Ibiza. Does anyone here recommend any specific place at that time of year? For example, if there are any festivals going on ...

Spain isn't hot in February. Canary islands should be pleasantly warm, but if you want hot you'll need to go further afield.

I've been in February and it's pretty hot. Hot enough to swim in the lakes far inland and in the seas.

You'll want a jacket at night tho..

Spain (as a rule) is not hot in February.

The Canary Islands might be 'warm' and it should be possible to swim there.

Anywhere else in Spain, it would be highly inadvisable to swim in February as you'd likely get hypothermia. Warm spells in February can occur but are the exception, not the rule. It has snowed in Mallorca at sea level in February, similarly I had snow in Granada when there at that time of year. I have also been to Madrid in February, it was sunny but the air was chilly (about 10 degrees) by day and cold at night. Navarra was completely covered in snow during that time.

I've just come back from a week's holiday in Tenerife, and we had perfect weather all week. Bright sunshine, average temperature (at sea level) of around 21°C, so very comfortable. Even at night at this time of year it doesn't get any lower than around 17°C. It's the first time I've taken a holiday during the winter to go somewhere warmer - definitely a breather from the bitterly cold British weather! Shame I had to come back really...
