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.

Beware the Ides of March, and pretty much every other day in one of the UK’s more miserable months. Meanwhile the ski slopes of the Alps beckon.

Harriet, Original Traveller

Our favourites for March



Utterly original, which probably explains why we love India so much.

Nambian wildlife


If there is one word to describe Namibia its 'cool.' Namibia, its fair to say, is one of the most sophisticated, individual and downright original countries on earth.

Palm Trees Amidst Rocky Outcrops at Wadi Shab


A wonderful destination combining beautiful beachfront properties and dramatic mountain and desert landscapes to explore.

Idyllic island near Belize


Formerly British Honduras, Belize is a country defined by various cultures, languages, and ethnic groups including descendants of the Mayans, whose civilisation dominated this region for centuries.



With 365 beaches to choose from, you'll need expert advice to seek out Antigua's best spots on your luxury holiday.

Antigua Guatemala

A highlight of any Guatemalan trip; Antigua competes with Cusco and Cartagena as Latin America's most beautiful colonial city.

Antigua Guatemala
Camels, Dubai


Shop the souqs and the malls, stay in a luxury hotel and enjoy water sports and a desert safari.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi

With an almost guaranteed 300 days of sunshine a year, Abu Dhabi is the ideal winter break destination.

Abu Dhabi
Alpine church in Austria


We know there’s more to this Middle European gem than skiing, but when the resorts on offer are of the quality of St Anton, Kitzbuhel and Lech, it’s hard not to focus on them
