    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 beaches, there are loads to pitch up on. Sand-centered days serve up plenty of holiday treats, like spotting tropical fish in coral gardens while snorkelling, and visits Monkey Beach, a sandy bay which is home to a family of cute primates.

    St Lucia

    Average temperature in St Lucia in February: 26°C

    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 29C 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’s 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 the chilly temperatures, Lanzarote enjoys highs of 21C, 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? The park’s got eight racing slides, the adrenaline-pumping Kamikaze, a huge pool, and a splash area for little ones. 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 winter in Jamaica. But that doesn’t stop eight hours of sunshine and sizzling highs of 28C showing up on the thermometer gauge. One of the best places to enjoy the sunshine is seven-mile Negril Beach. Here, you can try out some watersports, take a dip in the sea or pitch your beach towel for a spot of sunbathing. Once the sun starts to set, check out 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.
