Escaping the gloomy month of February is an enticing prospect. With short days, long, dark evenings, and the chill in the air, it's the perfect time to explore your holiday options and soak up some much-needed Vitamin D. In this guide, we've put together a collection of recommendations for February getaways, ranging from relaxing beach retreats to far-flung adventures, romantic Valentine's breaks, and family-friendly options for the February half-term.
If you're dreaming of a climate switch-up, the Maldives beckons with open arms. February graces this paradise with its driest and sunniest weather, boasting a constant warmth of around 28°C and clear blue skies. It's an idyllic time to visit, with excellent visibility for diving and snorkeling. Check out our exclusive special offer at Coco Island or consider combining the Maldives with Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle for a truly unique experience. Thailand is another fantastic beach destination. As the tourist crowds thin out towards the end of the season, you'll enjoy the best weather on Phuket and the surrounding islands. And if you're up for more than just beach lounging, the northern regions around Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai offer fantastic trekking opportunities in the dry climate.
February casts Southeast Asia in a beautiful light, just before the sweltering summer heat sets in. For those seeking February half-term escapes, dive deep into the history, culture, and delectable cuisine of Vietnam with our Family Adventure to Vietnam. Alternatively, consider the enchanting World Heritage town of Luang Prabang in Northern Laos, where February typically brings drier days. Indonesia, with its daily sunshine lasting up to 8 hours and temperatures around 31°C, presents another excellent option for family adventures, including island hopping and diving. Explore our Ultimate Sea Safari on Tiger Blue or Group Diving in Raja Ampat for unforgettable experiences.
February is one of our favorite months to explore India, whether you head to North or South India (excluding Ladakh). You'll be greeted by pleasant temperatures of up to 28°C and a generous 10 hours of daily sunshine. In our view, there's nothing more romantic than celebrating Valentine's Day in Rajasthan, where elegant palaces and ancient temples create a truly enchanting atmosphere.
