Where is it hot in February? The Best Vacation Destinations For Last Minute Winter Sunshine


THE January blues have indeed set in and summer seems so far away.

So if you can’t wait that long, let’s see where you could get away from it all next month – and you definitely won’t need a coat.


Get rid of the winter blues with a little February sun

February is generally cold in the UK and often accompanied by driving rain or even snow.

But the blue skies and sun are only a steal away, with some temperatures reaching over 30C – just be sure to check travel restrictions before you go.

The below are all open to Brits, but I require Covid testing on arrival.

Caribbean – 30C

The Caribbean is warm year round, but February is actually one of the best times of year to go.

According to the Met Office, average precipitation in Antigua is the lowest in February compared to any other month of the year.

Temperatures in the Caribbean can reach up to 30 ° C in February and drop to a comfortable 20 ° C at night.

It’s also the best time of year to avoid humidity, so if you’re battling the sweltering heat, February is the best time of year to go.

Relax on the white sand beaches sipping a piña colada and soaking up the sun.

British Airways offers seven-night vacation packages including flights and hotel to the Caribbean.

Prices start at £ 549 for a week in Barbados, £ 619 for a week in Saint Lucia and £ 639 for a week in Jamaica.

Orlando – 23.1C

Florida enjoys a powerful current from the Atlantic Ocean that brings warmer water from the tropics, which means it is warm year round.

Temperatures reach 23.1 ° C in February, so a tan is definitely there.

It might be worth bringing an umbrella, as the chances of rain increase in February, with an average total rainfall of 77mm throughout the month.

British Airways offers return flights from London to Orlando for £ 282.

Cape Town – 27.3C

The average temperature in Cape Town in February is 27.3 ° C, the hottest month of the year.

February is part of Cape Town’s summer season and enjoys 10 hours of sunshine per day.

It is one of the driest months of the year and there is only 10mm of rainfall, which is in stark contrast to the UK.

British Airways offers one-way flights from London to Cape Town starting at £ 397.

Cairo – 20.5C

The closest sunny destination on the list is Cairo, less than a five-hour flight from London.

Capital of Egypt and located on the Nile, Cairo has a desert climate which causes daytime temperatures to reach 20.5 ° C in February.

Rainfall in Cairo in February is very low, in total only 3mm over the entire month, so it is definitely not worth packing your umbrella.

Visitors can enjoy eight hours of sunshine a day.

British Airways offers round-trip flights from London to Cairo from £ 303.

Cancun – 32.2C

Cancun is the hottest of all the vacation destinations on our list at 32.2 ° C.

The beautiful beaches and luxury resorts of Cancun Mexico can be enjoyed under a scorching sun.

In February, the average rainfall is low at 28mm, which is perfect for vacationers who like the dry heat.

However, there are only five hours of sunshine per day, so you will need to make the most of it.

TUI offers direct flights from Manchester to Cancun for £ 205.

New low-cost transatlantic airline JetBlue offers flights to New York City from £ 300.
