February Honeymoon Destinations 

Palawan, Philippines

El Nido Palawan (Philippines)

Deciding where to honeymoon in February? The Philippines is one of the best destinations for fun in the sun. Which island should you choose? Palawan likely offers some of the most beautiful beaches you can choose from anywhere.

The beaches at El Nido and Coron offer incredible cyan waters with limestone cliffs jetting out, almost touching the clear blue skies. Both the water and air temperatures average over 80°F (26.6°C), providing perfect weather for your trip.

Looking for the best honeymoon destinations in February? Head to the French Alps.

At over 12,000 feet, Chamonix enjoys a long ski season that ensures you’ll have plenty of snow on your February honeymoon. In fact, Mont Blanc is the highest peak in the Alps. 

The popular resort town boasts plenty of dining, entertainment, and accommodations. Take in the mountain and glacier views from the trains, cable car, or Le Panoramic Restaurant at this fabulous resort town in France.

São Miguel Island, Azores

Best For: Island Hiking on Your Honeymoon 

São Miguel Island, Azores

We can get behind any February honeymoon in the Azores – the weather is temperate, hotel and flights are reasonable, and peak tourist season hasn’t kicked in yet.

And the Azores are the perfect antidote for honeymooners itching to hike after a long stretch of winter weather.

Our favorite? The long and challenging (but totally worth it) Sete Cidades Lagoons Route takes you past those twin lakes and volcanoes you’ve probably seen on IG. It’s epic.

Also, be sure to check out the spring bloom at Parque Terra Nostra, where some of the 600 species of camellias are in full bloom. Ready to relax? Don’t miss the thermal pools at Vale das Furnas. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days

We love the idea of a European city break, so why not head to the capital of Spain?

The weather is nice, with temperatures ranging between 39°F to 53°F (3.88°F to 11.66°F) and there’s only about 5 days of rain on average. 

And there’s a ton to do.

Sample delicious food at Mercado de San Miguel, take in the scenery at the bustling Plaza Mayor, and visit an art museum before they’re teeming with tourists (Thyssen-Bornemisza is the one).

Best of all, Carnival Madrid takes place each year in February and is full of exciting costumes and events.

Riviera Maya

Best For: All-Inclusive Elopement Honeymoon Packages


One of our favorite February honeymoon destinations is the Riviera Maya. Not only is it a great launching point for Tulum and Playa del Carmen, but it’s also home to one of our favorite All-Inclusive hotels.

The standard all-inclusive packages are great, with 5 pools, a private beach area, and dining on a terrace, courtyard, or beach at your fingertips.

But the wedding packages at Fairmont Mayakoba are the perfect opportunity to share your Valentine’s Day honeymoon with your friends and family. You can book an elopement package for as many as 30 guests and tie the knot on the sandy beach with nearly every detail taken care of.

Head to North Lake Tahoe and stay in Truckee, where you can access the best skiing and snowboarding trails at Palisades Tahoe. Soak in the panoramic views of the lake nearly all of the way down the mountain.

When you’re ready to celebrate your love, have a romantic dinner at Wolfdale’s Cuisine Unique, where you can gaze out at snow-covered pines and the iconic lake below.

Saint John, US Virgin Islands

Best For: A Laid-Back Honeymoon on the Beach and Hiking Trails

Saint John, US Virgin Islands

The large, untouched stretch of nature in Saint John makes it one of our favorite locations in the Caribbean Islands. And the warm temperatures and mostly sunny weather make February a perfect month to visit.

Hike the Reef Bay Trail in Virgin Islands National Park, swim with sea turtles in Maho Bay, and share lobster and key lime pie with your valentine on the idyllic patio at Morgan’s Mango.

Punta Cana (Dominican Republic)

Punta Cana is known for a lot of things. Great food, nightlife, and cigars are all great ways to celebrate on your February honeymoon.

But our favorite reason to plan a trip to Punta Cana in February is the perfect beach weather.

Be sure to explore the wonderful white sand beaches lined with coconut trees at Playa Bavaro and Juanillo Beach and swim with the dolphins when temperatures average a balmy 84°F (28.8°C). What’s not to love?

Safari honeymoons are the ultimate epic adventure. Guess what? We found one of the best honeymoon destinations in February.

Want to get up close and personal with some of the most exciting wildlife and unique scenery in the world? We thought so.

Head to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, where the ancient forests are home to several species of monkeys and over half the mountain gorillas in the world. Seriously.

February is ideal because the conditions are dry, and average highs are only around 75°F (23.9°C), making it perfect safari weather. 

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days

Best For: A Sandals Honeymoon


So, what are the best places to honeymoon in February at Sandals Hotels? We love the idea of a Caribbean vacation in Grenada.

The temperature stays around 80°F (26.6°C), even at night, so it’s great for enjoying their scuba diving tours, snorkeling, and kayaking on the property. 

You can also take advantage of the delicious cuisine, optional butler service, and walk-out balconies or private soaking tub enjoying the gentle trade winds blowing in.

From Santa Barbara up to Paso Robles, you can schedule a fabulous honeymoon in February filled with winery hopping, romantic candlelit dinners, and even one of the premier wine events in the region – The Garagiste Wine Festival. 

We love the idea of choosing Pismo Beach as a home base, where you can easily reach favorites like San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, and Arroyo Grande in under an hour.

We think starting at the Monarch Grove in Pismo Beach before visiting Laetitia Vineyard & Winery and Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards is an ideal afternoon itinerary. Finish with a romantic dinner at Koberl At Blue for a perfect day.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Vespera Resort on Pismo Beach

Santiago, Chile

Best For: An Urban Honeymoon

Santiago, Chile

Santiago might not have the best beaches in South America, but it has a ton to offer to tourists wanting an urban retreat.

Practical Tips for Planning Your February Honeymoon 

Find Great Deals on Hotels and Airfare

We love the idea of a February honeymoon for lots of reasons, and finding great deals is one of them.

Flights, car hire, and hotels are typically about as low as they get. So, plan your dream vacation without breaking the bank using your honeymoon fund

Research Local Events

While the holiday season may be winding down in the USA and Canada, local celebrations like Carnival are just getting started in places like Brazil and Spain.

You’ll want to book your hotel and airfare early for these locations, especially if you’re looking for the best hotels and all-inclusive packages. 

Head to the Beach

Many of our favorite honeymoon destinations have their best beach weather in February. Plan the best tropical honeymoon with your valentine when you travel in February.
