The South Coast including the UNESCO World Heritage Galle Fort has perfect weather conditions during the spring and superb whale watching opportunities off the coast of Weligama Bay and Mirissa. Blue Whales are jumping out of the ocean between February and March due to the krill feeding season. We can advise you how to go in search of the blue whale responsibly.

A stones throw from Weligama beach and a kilometre away from the boat departure point for whale watching tours is Suriyawatta Villa. The perfect family escape, perched above the ocean with an in-villa manager and private pool.


With both low rainfall and humidity, the best time to visit the Maldives is February. Pure white sands, turquoise waters and colourful reefs make this Indian Ocean paradise exceed all expectations and it’s certainly not just a honeymooners paradise. Explore the underwater world searching for turtles, swim with stingrays by day, kick back at the overwater cinemas and discover the bars by night with delicious cocktails in hand. The Maldives combines wonderfully with other countries in the subcontinent and is perfect for a more relaxing leg of your holiday.

Where to stay in February?

Choose from eco friendly hotels, dive destinations or family friendly resorts with amazing children’s clubs. One of our favourites, however, is the Constance Halaveli. It has managed to retain its Maldivian feel while incorporating the best that a five-star resort of this nature can offer. It is a great choice for families and couples alike. A very relaxed, yet stylish island.
