Going on a vacation or a honeymoon in March is a great option, as it is right after the period where the exotic locations are filled with “winter sun-seekers”, and right before the Easter break. So you can take advantage of some amazing destinations with lower prices and lower crowds of tourists.
Now let’s have a look at some of the best destinations for a March honeymoon:
Cape Town, South Africa
This place includes amazing sceneries as well as plenty of historic landmarks to visit. March is the end of the summer in Cape Town, meaning that it won’t be too hot, but it will still be much warmer than in the United States or Europe. This is the time where the crowds of tourists will already have been gone, and it’s also the wine harvesting season. So you can sip and enjoy some of the South Africa’s finest wines.
While in Cape Town, make sure to visit the iconic Table Mountain with its spectacular views, the Kirstenbosch botanical garden, the Zeits Museum of Contemporary African Art, the Boulders Beach with African penguins, the Robben Island where Nelson Mandela served many years of prison, the Neighbourgoods Market, the Kalk Bay or the Chincilla Rooftop Bar.
If you are looking for a mix of adventure and lazy time on the beach, then Thailand is perfect. You can lay in the sun and swim in the crystal clear water, do all sorts of water activities. But you can also encounter elephants and other amazing wild life in the Khao Sok National Park or explore the incredible capital of Bangkok and be a part of its vibrant night life.
March is a great time to visit Thailand because of the warm and comfortable weather, not too hot and definitely not cold. Other locations that are worth a visit are the Grand Palace (the former home of the king), any place that offers Thai massage, the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, the Nana Plaza, the Sathorn Unique Tower, the stunning Koh Phi Phi island, the wide variety of street food markets, the incredible Wat Arun temple, the Mai Night Bazaar and many more other amazing attractions.
Anguilla is a small British overseas territory with just about 14,000 residents. But it’s also an overlooked tourist destination with some amazing beaches, clear waters and wonderful palm trees. It is also a rising star on the food scene, and you will find a wide variety of restaurants for all tastes here.
Unlike other large and highly populated islands, here you will get more of a secluded feeling that is great for couples on their honeymoon. The weather in March is sunny and warm, and this is the end of the high season, so there will be less crowds in this period. Snorkeling and diving are popular activities, because of the calm waters. There are also plenty of cruises, tours and day trips that you can take and admire the nearby attractions. Overall this is a great honeymoon destination in the Caribbean.
When saying “exotic vacation” or “unforgettable honeymoon”, many people are actually thinking of the Maldives. This is a small nation formed of lots of atolls and islands, and is one of the world’s most geographically dispersed states and also the smallest Asian country. There are about half a million people living here, but many more other tourists that are visiting each year.
This is a tropical paradise where you can chill and have a lot of fun. The weather is great in March, with blue skies, low humidity and few rainfalls. The waters are clear and tranquil, so you can go diving or snorkeling and admire the incredible coral reefs of Maldives. A unique attraction here is the Hanifaru Bay, where you can swim among the harmless whale sharks and manta rays.
A Maldives honeymoon is absolutely worth exploring for your March honeymoon.
If you want to experience something a bit different than an exotic island, then head over to New Zealand that includes giant glaciers, splendid mountain sceneries, lakes, beaches, hiking trails and an incredible Maori culture. Here you can rent a car and hit the open roads together with your loved one and admire the amazing nature.
The weather in march will be just perfect for outdoor activities. It won’t be too hot but it won’t be cold either. The average daytime temperature is between 17 and 21 degrees Celsius (62 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit). The month of March is actually the beginning of the autumn in New Zealand, so you will get to see some amazing colors on the forest and mountain sceneries. You will get the chance to witness plenty of wildlife around here, including seals and dolphins while visiting Milford Sound during your March honeymoon.
Turks and Caicos
We bet that you didn’t even heard of this place before. It is a part of the British Overseas Territory, and consists of the larger Caicos Islands and the smaller Turks Islands. The resident population is just around 50,000 but there are also many tourists coming over. But not as many as on other islands in the Caribbean, which means that you will have a more private experience.
The weather is nice and sunny and you will get to lay on some amazing beaches and swim in crystal clear azure waters. The sun is shining in this location for around 350 days each year and the average temperature in March is around 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). The underwater world is very rich and you can explore it through scuba diving or snorkeling. In this time of the year you will also be able to spot migrating humpback whales while going on boat trips, tours or cruises.
