We know what you’re thinking – March seems really far away right now. But, it’s never too soon to be thinking about your next holiday abroad, especially if you’re a bargain hunter and want to snap up one of our great March deals before the masses do. Can’t decide where to go? Here are five places around the world, from Cuba to Cape Verde, that are still piping hot in March to help you out…
Average temperature in Hurghada in March: 21°
High temperature in Hurghada in March: 34°
Have you heard of Hurghada? This Egyptian fishing village has recently become a Red Sea superstar among holidaymakers, thanks to its world-class diving spots (the waters here are home to some of the most colourful coral reefs in the Med), a lively nightlife scene, and endless stretches of sand for you to chill out on. Plus, the mercury levels can reach up to 34 degrees in March, so it’s idea for sun worshippers.
Average temperature in Tenerife in March: 19°
High temperature in Tenerife in March: 24°
If you’ve not visited the Canary Islands before, make sure you tick off Tenerife first. It’s called the star of the Canary Islands for good reason – think a huge national park (which is one of the best in the world for stargazing, FYI), architect-designed beaches, and a buzzing nightlife scene. Plus, it’s the setting of famous ITV2 show, Take Me Out, so you can re-enact fun-filled activities, like zooming down the chutes and slides at Siam Park on your trip. Want to know the best part? In March, you’ll step off the plane to welcome temperatures of 24 degrees. Perfect.
Average temperature in Phuket in March: 31°
High temperature in Phuket in March: 32°
Fancy jetting off to somewhere tropical in March? If you’re already considering Thailand, look no further than the sun-kissed resort of Phuket. In March, the mercury reaches up to 32 degrees, so you’re guaranteed some fun in the sun. And if you visit Phuket during November to April, humidity levels are much lower than the rest of the year, and frequent dips in the infinity pool or sea will help to keep you and your brood cool – trust us, it’ll revive you in no time.
Average temperature in Cape Verde in March: 20°
High temperature in Cape Verde in March: 25°
We think Cape Verde is a great choice your next tropical escape. Looking for beach heaven? If so, make tracks for Sal – this cosmopolitan island is home to Caribbean-like sands, diamond-blue waters, and plenty of good vibes. The icing on the cake? A wealth of chilled-out beach bars sidling up to the sands, meaning you’ll never be too far away from those mandatory, ice-cold Caipirinha cocktails. Oh, and you can also look forward to toasty temperatures of 25 degrees if you visit in March.
Average temperature in Cuba in March: 28°
High temperature in Cuba in March: 30°
If you’re looking to go somewhere completely different on your next holiday, then Cuba’s capital, Havana, is the ideal choice. This multi-cultural metropolis is filled with cobbled streets, sun-kissed plazas and Baroque-style churches, so it’s perfect for culture vultures looking for more than sand and sea. And with an average temperature of 28 degrees in March, you can top up your tan as you’re exploring all the sights.
