Holidays in March 2014

Celebrate the beginning of spring with a break in March

James Bond Island, Thailand

March heralds new life, as Britain blooms with spring daffodils and bluebells, and we begin to experience the odd day of warm sunshine. Yet whilst the majority of Europe is beautiful at this time of year, the continent's still largely chilly - it's not just here that April showers fall too soon! Yes, when in in search of warmer climes, you'll need to travel that little bit further.

It's still peak season in Thailand and the Caribbean, whilst North Africa boasts a perfect climate for exploration. The Canary Islands are also a great place for holidays in March, whilst visitors to Cyprus will benefit from warm, sunny days. Wherever you fancy jetting off to this spring, HomeAway can find the accommodation to suit. Choose from hundreds of beautiful properties in the world's best destinations, and you're not only afforded the space and privacy you deserve - you save money in the process.


Top places to holiday in March 2014


Thailand Thailand

Thailand has a range of top destinations, each with a unique charm of its own. From Bangkok to Phuket, and from Koh Samui to Pattaya, you're sure to sample paradise when on holidays in March. There's so much to see, do and enjoy here that it's hard to know where to begin, but taking a trip to the beach is a start. You can go diving, snorkelling, fishing and surfing, or simply laze under the blissful sun. Head into the city for amazing cuisine and culture, or visit Thailand's beautiful shrines and temples. The adventurous will enjoy trekking through the rain-forest by elephant, whilst the fun-loving should head for the full-moon parties in Koh Phangnan.

The Caribbean The Caribbean

March is, arguably, the best time of year to visit the Caribbean, as temperatures rise to 30°C and rainfall is extremely rare. Aside from the dependably warm, dry weather, Caribbean holidays in March have much to offer. Easter celebrations take place on most islands, but each has a distinctive character of its own. Bermuda is the perfect spot for romantic meals on the beach, whilst St. Lucia's dramatic geography makes it ideal for adventurous couples. St. Kitts' wealth of historical sites makes it great for families with teenagers, but Barbados is the place to go for little ones to learn how to swim. Needless to say that wherever you go, the Caribbean won't fail to amaze.

Tenerife Tenerife

If looking for holidays in March with a difference, try Tenerife and its Santa Cruz Carnival. Not unlike the carnivals of Rio de Janeiro, Tenerife's myriad of colourful celebrations involve all-night dance parties and performances. Of course, if you don't fancy donning a glamorous costume, you can still join in on the fun; and if the carnival itself doesn't appeal at all, Tenerife offers so much more! It's always warm, sunny and bright in spring, so you can sunbathe on sandy beaches, traverse Mount Teide National Park, or bring your clubs for a game of golf in the aptly-named Golf del Sur.

Egypt Egypt

On Egypt holidays in March, you'll experience temperatures of around 25°C: it may not be the hottest, nor the coolest time of year, but it's perfect for exploring the wonders of ancient and contemporary Egypt. Choose a resort near the Nile if you want to discover pyramids, mummies, temples and statues: Giza is ideal, allowing you to travel to the Valley of the Kings, the Temple of Karnak and the Avenue of the Sphinx. Conversely, choose a destination near the Red Sea if you'd like to spend your holiday sunbathing: Sharm El Sheikh is a popular destination, with its beautiful beaches, clear waters and opportunities to scuba dive and snorkel.

Cyprus Cyprus

March is a great time to visit Cyprus: restaurants and bars begin to open for the high season, but you're able to avoid the mass tourism of summer. Spring is in full swing, with wild flowers and green hills illuminating the countryside, as a range of exciting celebrations take place. A laid-back island with a distinctly slower pace than Britain, you'll find relaxing in Cyprus is the best way to enjoy it. But if you do want to explore, there's plenty to keep you busy, whether you want to hike, shop or visit sites of historic interest. It's best to visit Cyprus in the last two weeks of March, when temperatures of 22°C are likely to last throughout your stay.

Whilst March is a little too early to guarantee hot weather in Europe, there are loads of fantastic destinations where you're bound to have fun in the sun. The Canary Islands and Egypt are just a five hour flight away, whilst the Carribbean and Thailand promise temperatures of 30°C. What's more, you'll make considerable savings by travelling in March - both flights and accommodation are cheaper outside the high season. Here at HomeAway, we liaise with property owners to find you the very best holiday rentals, covering all budgets, needs and necessities. Whether you want a quaint cottage in Cyprus or a beachside villa in Thailand, you'll find the perfect property when you book through HomeAway.
