  • Sea temperature: 28°C

For some serious beach time, head to Goa on the west coast of India. Expect wall to wall sunshine, cloud free skies, and hot days, although it drops to around 10°C at night, so no need for air con.

Egypt's Sharm el Sheikh is a great destination which sun and pleasure seekers flock to. February is a pleasant time to go before the real heat kicks in, with lower levels of heat and humidity and glorious long sunny days. The water is crystal clear but, although passable for some water sports, a little chilly for swimming, so you would want a hotel with a heated pool. There's also a real mix of things to keep children entertained such as kids' clubs at certain hotels, and excursions.

Try cycling in the national parks, kayaking in the sea or a simple stroll along the beach.
