If you haven’t yet dosed up on winter sun then you’re running out of months before – so the theory goes – the sun returns to northern Europe. March is also an excellent month to visit the Middle East before it gets too hot, and Namibia – one of our all-time favourite destinations is ideal at this time of year.
One final date for the diary – March is the beginning of whale shark season in Belize, and we know a secret spot where scientists can predict exactly when and why these elusive creatures turn up year in year out. Finally, and depending on the complicated algorithm that dictates the dates, this can also be the time to make the most of the Easter bank holidays. Easter in Antigua Guatemala is busy but brilliant, and works well with Belize.
