It’s either Spring or Autumn somewhere in the world in March, with the glorious but slightly temperamental weather that goes with the season. As temperatures rise, blue skies are seen more and blossom starts appearing on the trees – Europe in springtime is a great destination for honeymooners in March. The Southern hemisphere is continuing into Autumn, with beautiful warm weather.
Tropical destinations are still dry in March, and starting to get very hot.
Spring in the Northern Hemisphere
UK honeymoon destinations can be lovely at this time of year, with British pubs and cafés still offering cosy fires and cream teas if it decides to rain. Dartmoor, the Lake District, Cornwall, the Cotswolds or Yorkshire are among the huge range of British honeymoon destinations that will hopefully be seeing plenty of springtime sunshine in March.
Europe offers more reliable springtime warmth, with destinations such as Spain or the Algarve in Portugal emerging from the winter months to enjoy the vibrant spring time. Bear in mind, however, that it might not be warm enough for a beach honeymoon.
Tropical beach and Safari adventures
If you want more tropical temperatures and drier climates, you need to be thinking about travelling further abroad to places like the Caribbean, Africa or Asia to soak up the sunshine. Some suggestions to get you started:
- Adventurous safaris in South Africa, Kenya or Tanzania;
- Explore Morocco’s ethnic bazaars in Marrakesh, travel on to discover beautiful mountain and coastal regions;
- The Philippines have beautiful undeveloped beaches, volcanic scenery and world renowned opportunities for diving;
- Visit China before the humid weather arrives later in the year;
- Visit any of the many Caribbean destinations – St Lucia, Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba or the Dominican Republic;
- The Maldives is at the end of its dry season with lovely, sunny weather and beautifully calm seas, perfect for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts;
- Malaysia – tropical rainforests, plantations and exotic beach holidays are all on offer in March;
- South East Asia is in the middle of the dry season in March, and destinations such as Thailand, Vietnam or the less known Laos offer adventure and luxury at affordable prices;
- Australia and New Zealand are still enjoying warm weather, but the tourist season is starting to wind down, so take the opportunity to head down under and explore cosmopolitan cities, beautiful islands, beaches and stunning landscapes;
Note for travelling in March
Check your dates against the school holidays, as prices can rocket over the Easter break.
