We’ve been asked a few times recently for recommendations of where to to at February Half Term with the kids. These are just my ideas, and we haven’t visited all of them.
1. Lanzarote or other Canary Island
We visited Lanzarote in November for a family holiday and the weather was lovely.Temperature in February normally hovers around a comfortable 21°C in with averages of a degree or two warmer in the southern and western coastal resorts. Nights can be rather chilly though, with an average of 13°C. We have just booked to go again in February 2020!
Now we haven’t actually been but Mrs Atwah has and would highly recommend it. They visited the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
3. Pembrokeshire, Wales

5. Marrakech, Morocco
With a mix of good weather (mid twenties) and culture. Why not try a hotel on the outskirts of Marrakech in Morocco and head into the souks for a day of culture. Temperatures hover around the twenties in February. Good spa treatments for Mum too!
For a more relaxed Moroccan alternative to Marrakech, instead head to the relaxed port town of Essaouira with it’s long stretch if sandy beach offering surf lessons, camel riding and quad biking, and a traffic-free medina, which is a UNESCO heritage site.
6. Centre Parcs or an Alternative
Apart from the cost, this is a great time of year to go to Centre Parcs. They have lots of indoor activities and the pool is already paid for in your lodge cost. We have a few reviews on our site. Simply click here and type Center Parcs. Or why not head to our Ultimate Guide to Center Parcs!

You can also read our post on why Center Parcs isn’t just for the Summer months.
Cooler than summer undoubtedly but you can still get sunny days for exploring. The family friendly Martinhal gets rave reviews.
We’ve been lucky enough to visit all the Martinhal resorts and here is our comparison of those and which is our favourite.
We actually visited all of them in February too.
Stay at home and do day trips. The cheapest option and can be just as much fun. Use our search function to find places in your area, or why not try a National Trust place there are loads that are really good for kids and loads with really good playgrounds too.
We would like to update the list so if you have any ideas or reviews we can link to. Do shout!
