8 Hot Destinations for a sunny March break

March is a great time of year to head away on holiday. UK winter is almost over, and you can see the first signs of spring starting to appear. Naturally, you start remembering how great hot weather is, and the warm feeling of sun on your skin. The first thing you do? Book a sunny getaway.

There’s a good range of hot destinations to choose from in March, with European countries such as the Canary Islands offering warm weather, and more exotic countries such as the Dominican Republic and Vietnam also being a great choice for some sun.

So if you’re looking to plan a hot getaway, we’ve picked our top 8 destinations for a hot holiday to visit in March!

1. Cape Verde

Only a six hour flight away, Cape Verde is a great choice for a sunny holiday towards the end of March. Stay in Santa Maria on Sal island, and you’ll enjoy an average temperature of 25°C. It’s also less windy at this time of year, so you can relax on one of the large, sandy beaches, go swimming in the sea or even try out one of the many water sports on offer.

2. Dominican Republic

With highs of 30°C, this beautiful Caribbean country is a great destination to visit in March. Stay in Bavaro, Punta Cana, for sun, sea and endless sand. Explore the rainforest, eat some of the best food in the world, visit historical Higuey or simply stay on the beach - there’s 50 miles of it!

3. Jordan

March is historically the low season for Jordan, making it a great cheap option for a holiday at this time of year. Head for the historical city of Aqaba, located on the Red Sea's Gulf of Aqaba, and you can expect an average temperature in the high 20’s. There are plenty of beachside resorts here, and you can fly direct from London

4. Canary Islands

Tenerife is one of the most popular Canary Islands, and is another good choice if you’re looking for a cheap, but warm holiday in March. Only a 4 and a half hour flight away, Playa de las Américas is the largest holiday resort, with the average temperature of around 22°C. You’ll get plenty of sunshine though, so this is a great destination if you want to have an active holiday without breaking a sweat.

5. Vietnam

Depending on which area of the country you visit, the temperature can get as high as 34°C at this time of year, with many hours of sunshine a day. As Vietnam is such a long country, the weather can really vary from place to place. During March, we recommend splitting your time between the fascinating city of Ho Chi Minh, and one of the many nearby beaches. Mũi Né makes for a relaxing beach break, and if you have time the island of Phú Quốc boasts incredible, untouched beaches and dense tropical jungles.

6. Perth, Australia

For an alternative Australian adventure, take a trip to Perth for a hot holiday in March. Flights are often much cheaper to this less-visited city, as it’s still another four hours flying from here to Sydney. The weather will be hot and dry, with the temperature hovering between 25°C and 35°C. Hire a car and visit the famed vineyards of Margaret River, a must-do for any wine lover. Take a ferry trip from the city to Rottnest Island for a selfie with one of the many cute quokkas that live there. We’d also recommend visiting the incredible Ningaloo Reef, where you’ll have the chance to encounter whale sharks!

7. Dubai, UAE

With hot and dry weather, and an average temperature around 30°C, March is a peak time for travellers visiting Dubai. See the jaw-dropping skyscrapers of Dubai city, take a ferry ride across Dubai Creek, before going on your very own desert adventure.

8. Miami, USA

Make for Miami, Florida for guaranteed sunshine in March. With temperatures in the mid to high 20’s, you’ll get plenty of vitamin D. Stay in Miami Beach to enjoy a huge range of incredible restaurants, the hottest nightlife, and of course go for a swim in the ocean which stays at a balmy 24°C. There's plenty of hot weather to be had all across the USA in March.
