Where to go on holiday in March?
Winter holidays in March
Italy (attention to Coronavirus)
In the north of Italy you can of course experience an excellent skiing holiday and combine this with a visit to one of the beautiful lakes. Like the Lago di Braies. The nice thing about this destination is that it is easy to reach by car.
Sweden is also one of those countries where you can spend a pleasant winter holiday. Sweden is not only cosy but also ideal for the adventurer. And ride with the sled is definitely one of the possibilities here!
Switzerland is also a popular destination for skiing among many. And even in March this is perfectly possible. Although Switzerland is more than just skiing. Because this country is teeming with imposing roads in impressive landscapes. More than in any other mountain landscape in Europe.
The Principality of Lichtenstein is perhaps not the most popular or most famous winter holiday destination. But it is definitely worth a visit. Because from this dwarf state you are so in Austria or Switzerland. The ideal place for a holiday in March!
Austria should not be missed from the holiday destinations for March. Because Austria is perhaps the winter holiday destination of the Belgians and Dutch par excellence. A whole day of skiing and then an après-ski is perfectly possible and even almost mandatory!
A country that is not often seen as a winter holiday country is undoubtedly Slovakia. Nevertheless, you can also find some good ski slopes in this country. Well worth visiting a country with some handsome castles. And why not during a holiday in March?
Regular holiday in March
If you look at the climate alone then Algeria is a perfect place for a holiday in March. Only not every part of this country is as safe as you can believe the Foreign Office website. Don’t you decide to go to the biggest country in Africa? You’ll get a lot in place for this. Because this country has some beautiful buildings and also a beautiful desert where you get the feeling of being on another planet.
Anguilla is an island in the Caribbean Sea and is known by not many people. This small island that belongs to the Lesser Antilles and is part of the British overseas territories is however a very beautiful and restful island. Due to the difficult accessibility you will not encounter many tourists. To reach this island you will have to make a switch to Puerto Rico or Guadeloupe.
Antigua and Barbuda
Another island in the Caribbean Sea that is less well known is Antigua and Barbuda. Again, you won’t get easy here. And sometimes even a boat is the only way to visit these islands. Don’t expect excessive tourism here either! On the cruise ships docking, then.
Argentina has been gaining popularity in recent years and that is not surprising because the nature in this country is breathtaking. With the Torres de Paine National Park, Ushuaia, some glaciers and of course the famous waterfalls of Iguazu, this country has a lot to offer. It’s up to you to discover this in a holiday in March!
Bahrain is an island state in the Persian Gulf. Although this country is especially important as an army base for the U.S. fleet, this country in the Middle East is also a nice destination if you are looking for something different from the known countries in this region.
Enjoy with a coconut in a hammock on a pearly white beach you can do in Barbados perfectly! This island in the Caribbean Sea has a lot of beautiful hotels where you can enjoy a lovely sun and beautiful sea. An ideal holiday destination for March if you are looking for a sun holiday. Unfortunately, there are currently no direct flights from Belgium or the Netherlands.
Bermuda is also one of those islands in the Caribbean Sea where you can enjoy a wonderful weather. Only the tourism and the range of hotels here is not as great as at some other islands nearby. In addition, of course, you also have the myth around the Bermuda Triangle. Do you dare?
You can also visit this country in the Himalayas in March! The only downside to this special country is that you have to pay per day to visit this country as a tourist. And this can sometimes amount to 250 USD per person per day. What can make a trip in Bhutan expensive.
Especially for birdwatchers, March is the perfect month to visit Botswana. Because of the water that is present and the worse weather in the North you can spot some very rare birds here! Of course, on a safari you can see even more than just birds.
Brazil may not be the safest country if you can believe all the wild stories but it is certainly beautiful! When you go on holiday in March you can stay along the coast because you can get some rain in the interior and the Amazon forest. In March you just missed carnival so if you have the choice, it’s best to leave in February.
Brunei is not the largest country and also the offer of the sights in this country is not so great. But in terms of climate, this is a perfect location for a holiday in March! This country in Asia is best viewed through neighbouring Malaysia.
Canada is at the top of the bucket list for quite a few people. One that is also normal because we think there is nothing more beautiful than a road trip through the beautiful nature in Canada. Something you can do perfectly in March!
Chile is a country that has a lot to offer. With a beautiful nature such as Patagonia and the Atacama Desert. But also a very nice culture and delicious wines. In addition, Easter Island also belongs to this country. For a trip to this beautiful country you will have to outsource some time.
China (watch out for Coronavirus)
If there is no Coronavirus, Then China is also an excellent holiday destination for March! Because this country has both a beautiful nature and culture but also history. And moreover, you can also visit the Great Wall of China, one of the 7 wonders of the world (Chinese wall).
Also discovering the beautiful nature of Colombia is perfect in March. Because that’s how you avoid the rainy season that can be rough here sometimes. In addition, in March you also have Carnival Barranquila. A 4 day carnival party that is very impressive to experience!
Nature in Costa Rica is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the world. This destination is therefore also at the top of the list for many! For a holiday in March this is in our opinion the ideal destination. Are you looking for a special holiday that also has a little extra value? Then go help in one of the many volunteer camps to protect the animals in jungle. Like protecting sloths.
This country has been difficult to reach for years but nowadays you can even fly directly to Cuba from Belgium. And March is the ideal month for this! You avoid the rainy season and the heat of the full summer. You you enjoy a holiday at the beach in Varadero or are you going for a city trip in Havana ?
Djibouti a country in Africa is not really known by the average tourist. And this is not surprising, because this neighbouring country of Ethiopia is currently discouraged from visiting by the Foreign Office. And this is very unfortunate! because with Lake Assal, Day Forrest Park and Moucha Island, this country really does have some sights that are worth visiting.
Ecuador itself may not be the best holiday destination for March. Because of the many rains that sometimes fall during this period. But this rule does not apply to the Galapagos Islands, which belong to Ecuador. So you can visit these islands quite well in this month.
Egypt is perhaps one of the best countries to visit in March if you don’t want to fly long and still want a lovely sun. From Belgium and the Netherlands you fly directly to Hurghada and Sharm-el-Sheikh. An all-in holiday is one of the many options chosen here. And compared to some other countries, you don’t have to pay much for this.
Due to the increasing violence of recent years, El Salvador is not the safest country. Although this violence is not so bad for an ordinary tourist! Just don’t go for sale with all your wealth, the people in this country unfortunately don’t have much. So there’s no need to challenge the population. In El Salvador you can find a lot of nature, some Mayan temples and even a volcano.
The Falkland Islands is an island group near Argentina and has a whole history. This is because this island was used in the past in the war to attack Argentina from here. You can visit these islands best in combination with Argentina.

Gambia is also easy to reach with a direct flight where you are not long on the road. Get to know a whole new culture just 6 hours away. Please note: for Gambia you need malaria medication! This is sometimes forgotten.
In Ghana you don’t just get to know a whole new culture. It will also completely change you and give you a different view of the world and society. In addition, you can also admire nature in the Kakum National Park and the Mole National Park. This country is easiest to visit with a guide or organization.
Grenada is the ten smallest country in the world but that doesn’t make this island any less beautiful! Because as with any island in the Caribbean Sea you have a beautiful clear blue sea here that you can enjoy with a cocktail in hand! Unfortunately, this island is also not easy to reach. So you’re going to have to switch a few times.
Guadeloupe has recently become very easy to reach by direct flights from France and Belgium. Which makes this one of the easiest islands in the Caribbean to reach. Are you going on an adventure and discovering the nature of this colourful island?

Guatemala can be compared a bit to Mexico but then rougher and less affected by tourism. Although you may also encounter some tourists here today. Here, too, you have a beautiful nature and some Mayan temples to visit. And that under a lovely sun! This country is easy to reach with a transfer in Cancun in Mexico.
India is a country that stays with you, positive or negative! Because this country, with all its smells and colours and totally different culture, gives you a completely different view of the world. You either love this country or you hate this country. But we believe that everyone must have done this country at least once in their life. And that’s perfect in March!
Not a single country in the world that is as much in question as Israel. And while some people think this country isn’t that safe to visit, it is. You can plan Israel perfectly for a holiday in March and return in amazement. Because a visit to Jerusalem should be on your bucket list!
Côte d’Ivoire is currently under increased alert at the Foreign Office because of an attack that happened in 2016.

Jamaica is all nature one has some special places like the waterfalls of Ocho Rios and the birthplace of the music legend Bob Marley. In addition, you can also fly directly from Belgium to Montego Bay from where you can discover almost all the sights in this country.

Cape Verde is a much chosen destination in winter. One that is not so special because you can easily reach this country with one of the many tour operators. An all-in holiday is often chosen here.

Mexico is undoubtedly the country where we have lost our hearts. And we also visited Mexico for the first time in March!

Panama is best known as a tax haven but this country is more than just that. Here you can enjoy the beautiful coastline or on the San-Blas Islands where you can snorkel, sail and do one of the numerous other water activities.

In some cases, a boat from Martinique is even the cheapest and easiest option.
The Seychelles also speak for themselves. Pearly white beaches a sky blue sea and a very quiet vibe. The Seychelles is one of those dream destinations that you can only visit once in your life because of the cost. But that one time is to enjoy!

Because the airport alone is so impressively built that you can just walk around there for a whole day and enjoy the beautiful architecture. Because that’s what Singapore describes best… beautiful and impressive architecture and luxury!

Sri Lanka has seen a long rise in tourism, especially backpackers who were able to travel through this rough country cheaply. Unfortunately, that advance has taken a little snarl after the attacks in 2019. Nothing has happened since these attacks, but unfortunately the perception has turned against this country. Sri Lanka for a holiday in March? Why not!

You can find the U.S. Virgin Islands just off Puerto Rico. And the atmosphere on these islands are broadly similar. Isn’t it that tourism here is a bit less than with the big neighbour.
Yemen a country in the Middle East is similar to most countries in this region. So here too you can find the desert, some beautiful mosques and buildings. This country can only be reached with a switch. But it’s perfect to do in March!
America is one of those countries you can visit all year round. Because every region in America has a different climate. At this time of year, it’s best to head to the west of America.

Australia is also a country that can be visited all year round due to its different climate. However, when you have a holiday in March, it’s best to opt for regions in the south.
