The second month of the year signals one small step closer to summer, yet the temperatures are still low and winter blues may be lingering. That’s why we think it’s the perfect time to book a holiday to escape the cold! Unsure about where’s hot in February? We’ve rounded up our top six destinations to get you started.

1. Vietnam


Weather: Max. 31 degrees (approx.) | Min. 23 degrees (approx.)

What to do: Vietnam is a thoroughly captivating country to visit. Diverse, beautiful and welcoming, may travellers to Vietnam return with fascinating stories. The cuisine is delightful and the scenery is otherworldly. Ha Long Bay is characterised by thousands of tree-topped limestone islands that dot the bay or head south to the island of Phu Quoc for lush forest and fascinating wildlife.

2. Barbados, Caribbean


Weather: Max. 29 degrees (approx.) | Min. 23 degrees (approx.)

What to do: Only a couple of degrees cooler than in the summertime, Barbados is a top spot for visiting at this time of the year – even at nighttime, the temperature rarely dips below 23 degrees. Allowing you to unwind on tropical beaches and swim in crystal-clear waters as everyone back home stays bundled up, it’s an ultimate winter sun destination. We’d recommend renting a snorkel for the duration of your stay, or maybe a catamaran to explore the stunning coastline on a day trip.

Where to stay: With options that are within walking distance from the beach as well as local restaurants and shops, our growing collection of luxury villas in Barbados is here for you to explore.

This multi-faceted island is home to volcano Teide and its surrounding national park plus a variety of remarkable beaches. So, whether you prefer your explorations to be land- or water-based, this is a fantastic place to get away and get outside again!

5. St. Lucia, Caribbean

St Lucia

Weather: Max: 28 degrees (approx.) | Min: 22 degrees (approx.)
