Hottest Caribbean islands in February

By Mark Hodson, Sunday Times Travel Writer

February is an excellent month to visit the Caribbean. It’s peak season in terms of weather, with consistently hot sunny days, average highs around 29ºC, low humidity and some of the lowest rainfall figures of the year. On the rare occasions it does rain, you can expect a short sharp afternoon shower quickly followed by more sunshine. The sea will be deliciously warm, around 26ºC.

The hottest islands tend to be in the south of the Caribbean, including Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua Trinidad and Tobago and Grenada. The more northerly islands such as Cuba, the Cayman Islands and the Turks & Caicos Islands are only a couple of degrees cooler. You’ll still need high-factor sunblock wherever you are in the Caribbean.

Many islands can be reached by direct flight from the UK in around nine hours flying time. With a time difference of five hours, most flights depart the UK in the morning, arriving in the afternoon and flying overnight on the return leg. Airfares usually increase during the school half-term week, when some hotels are busier.

St Lucia

Average maximum temperature in February: 28ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 8
Flying time from UK: 8 hours 45 minutes
Monthly rainfall: 85 mm

Arguably the prettiest of the large Caribbean islands, St Lucia offers a lush backdrop of tropical forest, volcanic peaks and sheltered beaches. Those trees don’t thrive without a little rainfall, and St Lucia is a little wetter than most other islands, but in February you’ll barely notice. There’s plenty to keep you busy on this friendly island, from zip-wiring and mountain biking to the world’s only drive-in volcano. Don’t miss the Friday night “jump up” at Gros Islet, a huge street party with live music and food stalls from sunset. Find the best hotels in St Lucia.


Average maximum temperature in February: 29ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 9
Flying time from UK: 8 hours 30 minutes
Monthly rainfall: 40 mm

If you’re looking for sophistication and glamour, head to the west coast of Barbados which is also known as the “Platinum Coast”. It has the best of the luxury hotels and golf courses, and restaurants where you’ll need to book several days in advance. However, you don’t need to travel far to find the real Barbados of lazy villages, rum shacks and cricket matches on the beach, and the east coast is totally different – more windswept, starkly beautiful and near deserted. Head to the capital, Bridgetown, for some authentic local nightlife. See the best hotels and villas in Barbados.


Average maximum temperature in February: 28ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 8
Flying time from UK: 8 hours 40 minutes
Monthly rainfall: 35 mm

The tourist board has long claimed that Antigua has 365 beaches, one for every day of the year. Whether conveniently true or not, you won’t be disappointed by this friendly laid-back island. It’s easy to explore by car whether you want to tick off some of those beaches or visit the historic English Harbour, a kind-of tropical Greenwich packed with history and lively bars and restaurants. Our favourite hotels include Carlisle Bay and Curtain Bluff, totally different but both outstanding. The luxury all-inclusive Sandals Resort is squarely aimed at couples.


Average maximum temperature in February: 29ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 8
Flying time from UK: 9 hours 10 minutes
Monthly rainfall: 65 mm

All the cliches about Jamaica are true – it’s a fun friendly island with gorgeous beaches, rum, reggae and fabulous weather. But there’s a lot more to the island, with its mountains, rainforest, waterfalls and stunning birdlife and tropical gardens. Jamaica is the home turf of  Sandals which has  four luxury all-inclusive resorts on the island including the Caribbean’s first over-water suites. But you’ll also find a lot of small exclusive hotels and quirky boho-chic retreats. i-escape has the best selection.


Average maximum temperature in February: 27ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 7
Flying time from UK: 9 hours
Monthly rainfall: 35 mm

You can’t hope to do Cuba justice in a short holiday but you can quickly get a flavour of this vibrant and endlessly fascinating island. Rather than head straight to the beach, spend at least a few days in the historic capital Havana and, if you can, visit the charming colonial city of Trinidad. Aside from sunbathing, there are endless activities on offer, from horse riding to scuba diving, zip-lining to caving. Make some time for a few mohitos and a night at a salsa club. See a full guide to the best holidays to Cuba.

Cayman Islands

Average maximum temperature in February: 29ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 8
Flying time from UK: 12 hours (via Nassau, Bahamas)
Monthly rainfall: 45 mm

The Cayman Islands offer the greatest variety of catalogued dive sites in the world. Whether you are a beginner or an expert (Jacques Cousteau put the islands in his premier half dozen), you’ll be able to experience both reef and wreck diving. The islands also has some excellent hotels and the beaches are pretty good too. With a reputation for safety and security, this is a great destination for the risk averse.


Average maximum temperature in February: 29ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 8
Flying time from UK: 18 hours (via Miami or St Martin)
Monthly rainfall: 40 mm

The tiny coral island of Anguilla has some of the best beaches anywhere in the world – white, soft, powdery and very often near deserted. It is home to some of the Caribbean’s finest hotels including Malliouhana and Cap Juluca and the beach restaurants are outstanding. It’s not easy to reach, with no direct flights from the UK, but that’s part of its charm: the extra effort means that it caters to a smaller more discerning crowd.

Dominican Republic

Average maximum temperature in February: 28ºC
Hours of daily sunshine: 8
Flying time from UK: 9 hours 5 minutes
Monthly rainfall: 52 mm

Dom Rep has a well deserved reputation for cheap Caribbean sun and February is a perfect time of year to visit. February is whale watching season, when you can sea humpback whales on an excursion booked in Punta Cana, Samaná, Santo Domingo or Bayahibe. Carnival is celebrated throughout the whole month of February with colourful parades held in most cities, culminating in the celebration of Dominican Independence Day on 27 February with parades and a large military display in Santo Domingo.

Best Caribbean Islands to Visit in February

February in the Caribbean is one of the coolest months of the year but with temperatures averaging between 70-80°F, visitors from the Northern hemisphere who want to escape the dismal weather back home have nothing to worry about as they laze on the beach or hike through the jungle. The only question is, which Caribbean Island to choose, we hope this article will help you decide the best island for you…

Table of Contents

1. Cayman Islands

Visit the Caymans in February and you can expect temperatures of between 65°F-85°F with little chance of rain. Comprising of 3 islands, the biggest is Grand Cayman which is well known for its beach resorts, scuba diving  (did you know that the Caymans boasts 365 dive sites?!), snorkeling, and water sports –

Snorkeling at Stingray City and scuba diving off of the USS Kittiwake are just two things to add to your underwater bucket list. If you seek some time away from the sea, head to the capital of George Town, here you can enjoy tax-free shopping and museums.

Don’t spend all your time on Grand Cayman though – the island of Cayman Brac is where most of the deep-sea fishing excursions launch from as well as being a paradise for hikers whilst Little Cayman, the smallest yet also the mightiest, is a haven for honeymooners and also beloved by twitchers as here you’ll be able to watch the uniquely named bananaquits, red-footed boobies, and frigate birds.

The Cayman Islands truly have something for everyone whether you’re a family, couple, or solo traveler – Luxury resorts, some of the best beaches in the world, and an abundance of activities on land and underwater.

2. St Lucia

In February, this Eastern Caribbean island enjoys balmy breezy temperatures of between 73°F-84°F. Green and pristine with two dramatic mountains on its West coast, St Lucia has volcanic black sand beaches as well as pristine white sand beaches to enjoy.

The capital city, Castries, is the main cruise port so can become crowded but escaping into nature is no problem – choose a trail and make your way through the interior rainforest being sure to pay a visit to Toraille waterfall, or choose a beach and alternate between snorkeling or diving on the reef sites and relaxing beneath a palm tree.

When you’re ready for some culture, explore the fishing villages and then head over to Pigeon Island, the national park dotted with ruined military fortifications from colonial times.

St Lucia is well known for being a wedding and honeymoon destination but it should be known that it’s an island with a split personality so where you stay should be chosen carefully – Do you want the noisy action-packed North with the port, multitude of resorts, nightlife, markets, and general hustle and bustle or the slow South with the rainforest and laid back resorts that are few and far between?

3. Antigua

If you visit Antigua in February you can expect beautiful breezy daytime temperatures of 83°F and nighttime temperatures of 72°F, pretty perfect for enjoying the pristine white sandy beaches and aquamarine sea, home to turtles and rays.

If you can drag your head out of the water and your body off of the beach (the island is ringed with coral reefs and boasts 365 beaches!) there are plenty of cultural and outdoor nature activities to enjoy on this small island that don’t involve swimming, snorkeling, or scuba diving – visit the capital, St John’s for a day of shopping and museums, see Betty’s Hope, the site of one of the first sugar cane plantations of the island, and visit Nelson’s Dockyard, the restored 1780’s base of Admiral Horatio Nelson.

You can also hike up to Shirley Heights and take in the panoramic views from this former military lookout, hike or zipline your way through the jungle, and enjoy a sunset cruise along the West coast.

Often overlooked in favor of the more famous and larger Caribbean islands, Antigua is great for couples as well as families looking to kick back and relax under the breezy blue sky.

4. Barbados

The temperature on this Eastern Caribbean island of Barbados during February usually keeps in the mid to high 80’s with little humidity so expect beautiful breezy days though night temperatures can drop down to 66°F.

Bridgetown is the capital with a cruise ship port but doesn’t let the crowds of day-tripping tourists put you off spending time here, it’s full of wonderful colonial buildings with Lord Nelson’s statue standing proud in National Heroes Square.

The harbor at sunset is a must-see with the sun reflecting off of the fishing boats and no trip would be complete without trying out some of the street food on offer.

Be sure to venture further afield too, St. Nicholas Abbey is a 17th-century plantation house worthy of seeing as is the historic military base of Garrison Savannah, there’s also Speightstown, a charming port town with the 18th century Arlington House.

If you’re more of a nature fan than a culture vulture, head to the Andromeda Botanic Gardens or hike through the jungle, a visit to Hunte’s Gardens and Harrison’s Cave are a must.

Barbados is certainly the family-friendly island to choose for culture vultures and nature lovers who seek more than just water activities, not that there’s anything wrong with spending your entire time snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, and sunbathing!

5. Martinique

This rugged Caribbean Island with its mix of French and West Indian influences (it’s an overseas region of France) enjoys temperatures averaging 76°F in February however, you should expect some rain showers, possibly thunderstorms too, this island experiencing an average of 15 days of rain in February versus 3 days of rain on St Lucia and Antigua.

Mountains, beautiful beaches, tropical gardens with hummingbirds, jungle waterfalls, diving, snorkeling, and pre-Columbian history will fill your days when you’re visiting this island. Fort-de-France is the port capital containing steep narrow streets filled with French boutiques and bakeries along with museums and architectural delights such as the cathedral whilst Trois Ilets is where most of the tourist resorts are located.

When off sightseeing, Saint Pierre is a must-see town as this was the former capital of the island before Mount Pelee erupted and destroyed the city in 1902. Today the town has been rebuilt from the ashes but you can still see the scars of Mother Nature.

Other highlights include visiting the ruins of Château Dubuc, hiking Mount Pelée or the gorges along the Falaise River, and of course, spending time relaxing on the beaches and in the crystal clear water.

Martinique can be the ideal Caribbean Island for European travelers who have not dared to venture beyond their own back garden yet as they can say they’ve visited the Caribbean safe in the knowledge that you’re still part of the EU with the familiarity of the Euro!

6. Grenada

Grenada is a Caribbean country as well as an island, the country made up of the main island of the same name and smaller surrounding island. Known as ‘the Spice Isle’, St. George’s is the capital of Grenada with architecture including a fortress and a mixture of Georgian buildings, and colorful wooden homes, tourism concentrated in the South-West corner of this Caribbean island that is roughly the same size as the UK’s Isle of Wight.

Visit this island in February and you can expect temperatures of between 75°F – 83°F with light to moderate winds and perhaps one or two rain showers, this island receives on average 9 days of rain during February which makes it dryer than Martinique but wetter than the Cayman Islands and St Lucia.

Awash with nutmeg plantations (which is why it’s known as the spice island – you can smell the nutmeg in the air), tourists can spend their days hiking in the rainforest, admiring the waterfalls, scuba diving at the world’s first underwater sculpture park, and relaxing on the white sandy beaches.  

A visit to the Diamond Chocolate Factory or a mooch around St George’s waterfront can round off the day nicely if you seek some non-water activities.

Less developed than some of the other Caribbean Islands, Granada is a true tropical paradise for those who want to enjoy Mother Nature and get back to a more simple and unspoiled way of life.

There’s a likelihood of a rain shower or two throughout your visit, St Vincent and the Grenadines usually experience 13 days of rain in February despite this being the dry season.

Bequia is the largest of the Grenadines, famous for its boat builders and the last hand-harpooners in the world with the island of Canouan beloved for its white-sand beaches and the islets of Tobago Cays the place to dive and snorkel the coral reefs.

Aunindita Bhatia


The Caribbean is stunning year-round but these islands, in particular, are best visited when the rest of the world is experiencing chilly temps.

The Caribbean is known for its beaches and is the place to travel if you are looking for a great time on an island. However, the time in which you travel to the Caribbean plays a vital role in just how much you enjoy the trip. The best time to visit the Caribbean is during winter, specifically the months of December, January, and February. This is because, during this time, the beach gets less rainfall and better weather, which enables tourists to enjoy their trips to the fullest.

Snow can be seen here only in mountainous areas where light frosts persist. In the north of the country, the lowest temperatures are recorded, regardless of the time of year. The rest of the mainland has moderate temperatures. The most comfortable climatic conditions are on the southern outskirts of continental Greece. It is very sunny here, but it rains much more often. The island climate of Greece in winter is characterized by inhospitability and discomfort. The Ionian Islands are met with gusty winds and prolonged precipitation.

    Greece in February

    In February in Greece, compared to the previous winter months:

    • the sun rises higher;
    • daylight hours begin to increase;
    • gradually warms up the air;
    • precipitation becomes less.

    But the nights continue to be cold – +2°C on average. Torrential rains are still the same frequent guests – the third part of the month they reign on the Balkan Peninsula, sometimes giving way to drizzling. Gray dense clouds replace low heavy clouds. The air at the end of winter warms up to +12…+14°C on average. In the north and in the mountains, where the ski resorts of Greece are located, intense snowfalls are frequent, delighting fans of winter sports.

    In any case, such a winter is much more pleasant, softer and more comfortable than the Russian one. Even in the mountains, the air temperature does not drop below 0°C, which is why snow rarely lies on the peaks. Most often in the mountains, as well as on the plains, there are heavy heavy rains, and their slopes are covered with dense, green pine forests.

    Where to fly to the sea in February

    However, this is not a reason to be upset, because while it is winter in Russia, somewhere in another country the sun gives warmth to local residents and tourists, but somewhere warm days never pass at all. Such a place can be called the island of Tenerife in the Canary archipelago, all year round it is ready to welcome guests in its warm arms.

    What is the weather like in Tenerife in February?

    The island is located in the subtropics, so the weather here is moderate throughout the year, and there is no sweltering heat at all. In February, the air temperature is around +20 °C. This is the ideal weather to take a break from the Russian frosts, but at the same time not to get abruptly from the cold to a very hot climate. For this reason, no sharp changes are observed in the body of tourists upon arrival, even in the cores.
    It is best to choose the southern part of the island for a February holiday, as it can rain in the northern part. The northern part is not very suitable for recreation, since it accounts for most of the island’s total precipitation. But you need to understand that even in the southern part they can still occasionally occur, but usually it is no more than three rainy days a month. By the evening it gets a little colder, the temperature can drop to +14 ° C, so you still need to take a couple of warm clothes with you, especially if you plan to go for walks in the evening.

    What to do on the island in February?

    The waters of the Atlantic Ocean at this time are not yet warm enough for a full-fledged swim, but still it is quite possible to swim without fanaticism. Those wishing to explore the ocean depths can always go diving here, and there are many offers for it on the beaches. And wearing a wetsuit will allow you not to freeze while in the water for a long time.
    Tourists looking for a less active pastime can ride a yacht or catamaran and enjoy the wonderful scenery, and if you’re lucky you can meet dolphins and whales. Fans of excursions will be able to enjoy 200 excursion routes will be accompanied by Russian-speaking guides. Usually all the main routes begin with a visit to the capital of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which houses the largest museums of the island, where you can learn everything about the culture and history of the Canary Islands.

    The most famous resorts of the island

    When choosing a holiday resort, you need to clearly understand which place you want to go to and whether this or that resort is suitable for your holiday. The main resorts of Tenerife include:
    Los Cristianos. The resort is located at the very foot of the volcano on the southern part of the coast. The place is quite quiet, more like a small village with an equally small port. The resort is perfect for lovers of a relaxing holiday in silence, because in addition to two beaches and several cafes and shops, tourists will not find anything here.
    Ten-Bel. The resort is popular among those who do not like to leave the limit of rooms or hotels of their residence. Hotels in this place are not expensive, but at the same time quite comfortable, almost everything works on the all inclusive system. Surprisingly, the resort does not have a beach at all, it is replaced by a huge sea water pool.
    Puerto de la Cruz. Compared to the above two resorts, it is more lively. The small streets of the city are full of restaurants, from which the pleasant sounds of the violin can be heard day and night


    For those who want to see the sea in February and go to an exotic country, Vietnam will be an excellent option.

    Popular resorts in Vietnam

    Hannoy is not only one of the most popular resorts, but also the capital of the country. There is no beach holiday here, so you should not give preference to it for the entire rest period, but it is perfect for viewing the main local attractions.
    Halong Bay, located in the Gulf of Tonkin of the South China Sea, includes more than three thousand islands, cliffs, caves and rocks. Tourists here are offered many options for visiting caves in which you never know what you can find.
    Hoi An, this is the most popular place among tourists. In the city itself and its environs there are 844 buildings of historical significance, one vacation is not enough to leave at least half of them. Just a couple of kilometers from the central part of the city there are high quality beaches. The beach area is large enough for everyone to relax without disturbing others, even beaches in the UAE can envy their cleanliness.


    Magnificent weather conditions of the Indian resort attract tourists not only from Russia, but also from all over the world 10 hours per day. But these weather conditions soften the winds blowing from the sea, besides, the lack of precipitation lowers the humidity, so that the stuffiness is not felt at all.

    Things to do

    The beaches in Goa are sandy, the sand has a barely silvery tint in the southern part and dark silvery in the northern part, this is due to the fact that there it is of volcanic origin. Throughout February, the beaches are crowded with both locals and tourists, the sea is so warm that it warms up to +27 ° C and feels like fresh milk. The waves in many places are quite large, which is great for surfing, but for calm swimming this is not a very favorable fact. But if you search well, you can find places with a relatively calm sea.
    As excursions, you can visit colorful villages, there are a lot of them in Goa, study the life and culture of the local population, and even attend a themed wedding. There is even a vintage car museum in a village called Nuvem. And you can not only admire them, but even ride on some.


    Dona Paula, a resort located in the southern part, it is very popular among young people. Here you can find a lot of sports entertainment: ride yachts, scooters, boats. There are even sports festivals.
    Colva, this is the noisiest resort, the beach is very crowded, the restaurants are always full of guests who want to taste local dishes. At night, life in the resort does not subside, but moves to nightclubs.
    Palolem is not a quiet resort, but even so it is much calmer here than in Colva. The place is more like a paradise on earth, there are coconuts, palm trees and water like fresh milk.
    When it’s cold in our country, sunny days and a warm endless sea reign somewhere else. That is why winter vacation is not at all a reason for sadness.

    Climate in Hawaii

    The main features of the climate in Hawaii: mild temperature throughout the year, moderate humidity, the predominance of the northeast trade winds, a significant difference in the amount of rainfall within short distances, rare storms. And this means that girls do not sweat, men do not weaken, and in general, it is extremely comfortable – there is no sweltering heat of tropical islands and hot countries. Surprisingly, the ad is right – Hawaii is a climate paradise!

    No seasons!
    There are only two seasons in Hawaii, the so-called “summer” (from the point of view of a Russian, summer is always here!) from May to October, and “winter”, from October to April. The coolest months are February and March, the warmest are August and September. Even on the hottest days, the air temperature does not exceed 32 degrees. The average daily temperature in January is 26.7 degrees.
    Winter among the ancient Hawaiians is a wet season, summer is dry. In fact, the probability of precipitation is much higher in winter, there are heavy rains, and, directly, floods. But this is “… in some places with us sometimes.” Hawaii has “local” weather, which means it all depends on which island and which part of it you’re on. In general, we do not recommend going to Kauai in winter. But here it is important to remember that you can simply move to another part of the island, and everything will be as it should be there: warm, sunny and not hot.
    For those who do not believe in our weather guarantees, meticulous and curious, watch the weather forecast

    The ocean is always warm!
    In Hawaii, the local news never reports the water temperature. This question is of no interest to anyone, except for ignorant Russian tourists. Seasonal fluctuations in water temperature do not exceed 3 degrees: in winter 24, in summer 27. Hawaii is not suitable for lovers of a “warm bath”, but most tourists like the refreshing effect and cheerfulness.

    Storms are unlikely!
    Surprisingly stable weather in Hawaii is due to the fact that the islands were lucky to be attached near a stationary anticyclone. Hawaii is located south of the variable weather zones (35 and 65 north latitude). Here, in the subtropical ocean, the stationary atmosphere is in the so-called “semi-permanent” flow. That is, all bad weather is located north of the Hawaiian Islands, and the constant northeast trade winds of the anticyclone bring coolness and joy to windsurfers.
    Well, there are cyclones. Rarely. No wonder the Hawaiians did not have the word “weather” in their language.

    Islands are different!
    The Hawaiian mountains and valleys are not only fabulously beautiful. By changing the direction of air currents, they lead to significant differences in climate even within the same island. Noteworthy are the frightened questions of tourists traveling from the Honolulu airport to Waikiki at the sight of dark cumulus clouds over the mountains. We have to calm down: orographic or mountain rains are a common occurrence in Hawaii. But just a couple of kilometers away, on the ocean, sunbathing under the hot sun. In general, the contrast is significant. If over the ocean, on average, 30-50 cm of precipitation falls annually, then on the islands in some places – 15 times more!

    Leeward and windward sides of the islands (west and east) differ significantly in precipitation. There are two distinct regions on the islands: the arid west and the green east. It is strange, but true – although most of the precipitation constantly falls on the east coast, in summer very intense rains can pass in the west – they are warm and end quickly.
    High, three and four thousand meters high, the mountains of Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii have eleven climatic zones. In winter, over alpine meadows it can go, and even lie, snow (on the island of Hawaii).
    One of the well-known jokes is to snowboard a hundred meters across the virgin snow on the top of Mauna Kea. It was recorded here -11 degrees at 1979 year!

    Time does not change!
    Hawaii is in the tropics where day length and temperatures are relatively uniform throughout the year. Time does not change here. The difference between the longest and shortest day is only two and a half hours.
