Where to go - sea - february

Where to go to the beach according to climate

Sea and shore


In February, the situation is similar to that of January: in North Africa it's winter, on the west coast the sea is a bit cold up to the latitude of central and northern Senegal. On the coast of the Gulf of Guinea, it's hot and there is little rain, but the sky is often cloudy in the far east. In Equatorial countries of East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania) there is little rain and the sun shines, although it's still hot and muggy.
Where to go: Benin, Cote d'Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Djibouti, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Senegal (south), Tanzania (north), Togo, Zanzibar


It's winter, and in south Asia the north-east monsoon prevails, bringing fine weather, except in the exposed slopes.
Where to go: Burma, Philippines (western side), India, Maldives, Malaysia (Kota Baharu, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu), Oman, Thailand (Koh Samui, Pattaya, Phuket), Vietnam (center and south), Yemen

North and Central America

In Florida, it can sometimes be cold, especially in the north-central part, while in Yucatan, cloudy days, even cool and windy, are possible, with some rain. In Central America it is hot, but some slopes exposed to the northeast trade winds are still quite rainy, though less than in January.
Where to go: Belize, Costa Rica (Pacific side), El Salvador, Guatemala (both coasts), Honduras (both coasts), Mexico (Acapulco), Nicaragua (Pacific coast), Panama (south side)

Caribbean Sea

The situation is similar to that of January, even if the temperature begins to rise a little. On the other hand, in some areas the rains due to the trade winds become less frequent. It's generally a good month, but in the northernmost part there may be windy and cloudy days when the cool wind called El Norte blows from the United States. In the northern slopes of the larger islands and in the Windward Islands, the trade winds may bring some rain. The warmer and sunnier islands are therefore the southern ones (Leeward Antilles).
Where to go: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Leeward Antilles (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao), Colombia (Caribbean Sea), Dominica, Jamaica, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Guadeloupe, British Virgin Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, Martinique, Montserrat, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic (southern and eastern coast), Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin/Sint Maarten, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, Venezuela (Maracaibo and islands).

South America

It's summer in the southern hemisphere. On the west coast the sea is quite cold up to central Chile, while it becomes cool but nonetheless acceptable in northern Chile.
Where to go: Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), Chile (north), Peru


It's summer in the southern hemisphere, so at tropical latitudes it's warm, it rains and tropical cyclones may form. In Australia, you can still go to Perth, which has a Mediterranean climate.
Where to go: Australia (Perth), Guam, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Micronesia, Palau
