  • Whether you’re over winter and itching for summer to hurry up, or you’re looking for a romantic getaway for Valentine ’s Day, a sunny break is probably on the cards for you. Check out these destinations where the temperatures are scorching…

    Thailand

    Average temperature in Thailand in February: 28°C

    High temperature in Thailand in February: 33°C

    You’ll be met with toasty temperatures in Thailand during February, with highs reaching 33°C. Plus, you’ll be getting at least eight hours of sunshine a day, which is perfect if you’re looking to spend most of your time on the beach.

    And speaking of the beach, why not make the most of the sunshine by spending your time on one of the world’s most famous stretches of sands? Phi Phi Ley, a trio of islands, had a starring role in Hollywood blockbuster The Beach, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. You can visit the beach on our Full Day Phi Phi Island by Speedboat excursion, where you’ll get the chance to spot tropical fish in coral gardens while snorkelling, and also visit Monkey Beach, a sandy bay which is home to a family of cute primates.

    St Lucia

    High temperature in St Lucia in February: 29°C

    To the people of St Lucia, February is a relatively cool time of year. But to us in the cold, grey UK, the glorious highs of 29°C are nothing to be sniffed at. In fact, you’ll probably want some respite from the hot sun. Why not seek some shade under the trees in St Lucia’s rainforest? You can glide through the air on an air gondola, spotting exotic wildlife and fauna, before cooling off with a speedy trip through the forest by zip-line – the best way to really feel the wind in your hair. Keep an eye out for the multi-coloured parrots, which only live in St Lucia.

    Lanzarote

    Average temperature in Lanzarote in February: 18°C

    High temperature in Lanzarote in February: 21°C

    Lanzarote is just a stone’s throw away from the UK, but the weather in February couldn’t be more different. While we’re wrapped up in winter coats battling 5°C, Lanzarote enjoys highs of 21°C, making it the perfect place to get some winter sun.

    And what better way to cool off than heading to Lanzarote’s only waterpark, Aquapark Costa Teguise? Eight racing slides, the adrenaline-pumping Kamikaze, a huge pool and a splash area for the little ones are just a few of the things that await you here. You also have some great attractions on land to keep you and the family entertained too, like a paintball centre, trampolines, bouncy castles and a go-kart track.

    Jamaica

    Average temperature in Jamaica in February: 26°C

    High temperature in Jamaica in February: 29°C

    February is considered to be winter in Jamaica. But that doesn’t stop eight hours of sunshine and sizzling highs of 28°C showing up on the thermometer gage.

    One of the best places to enjoy the sunshine is seven-mile Negril Beach, which you can visit on our Beach Chill Out and Rick’s Sunset excursion. You’ll have time to try some watersports, take a dip in the sea or pitch your beach towel for a spot of sunbathing. And once the sun starts to set, you’ll head up to Rick’s Café. It’s a local favourite, thanks to the tasty menu of jerk chicken and rum punch. It also has the best views over the terrace of the sun setting, as well as nightly entertainment from daredevil cliff divers who jump from the cliff in to the water below.
