Best Beach Vacations in March

March is the latter part of winter in the northern hemisphere and almost autumn in the southern hemisphere. The pendulum is beginning to swing the opposite way for most of the winter time getaways sun-seekers flocked to during the coldest months. However, the best beach vacations in March are still generally found far south, where living like a local, but choosing a vacation rental, in these paradises means having more room and comfort.

he Red Sea has a lot of world-class coral you can scuba dive through, and the weather is excellent. In addition to these points, the area also has convenient access to the ancient wonders of Luxor. While much of the sand is coarse, making the natural beaches small, the artificial beaches on the Hurghada side are lovely.


Some of the best of this country's beaches are Ngapali Beach, Chaung Tha Beach and Ngwe Saung Beach. The lack of development and extremely friendly locals make the trip very worthwhile, but staying for two weeks or more is recommended to make the traveling worth the while.


One of the best beach vacations in March happens in Kenya. This is the end of the summer migration season, and some of the beaches are seriously great values for the money. Two of the best are Diani and Serena Beaches. Just be sure to get a local guide, so you'll be able to stay clear of any iffy areas.

Sydney, Australia

Both Manly Beach and Bondi Beach are great places to take in the legendary Australian waves. However, if you don't care so much about surfing, the proximity to Sydney is a definite plus if you plan to do absolutely anything else. A city of this size, located on the world's largest natural bay, naturally has everything.

Catanduanes Island, Malaysia

Puraran Beach is what makes this island really stand out from the rest. Unlike much of Malaysia, Catanduanes Island has some of the softest white sand you've ever had the pleasure of strolling across. Add the picture-perfect blue of the ocean and you've got a good mental picture of what awaits you here.

Virgin Gorda

Christopher Columbus originally imagined the topography of this island to be a fat virgin, which is the literal translation of this island's name. You can rent some amazing private villas here, from which you can explore all over. One of the most interesting and unique features of this island is The Baths, which are a group of grottoes and pools made up of huge boulders spread all around the island.

One of the best beach vacations in March is McKenzie Beach. This place is composed of extremely fine white sand, clean fresh water and very little development. It's just you, the beach and a good time. The difficulty of getting there makes the experience less crowded.

Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

March in Saint Thomas means the International Rolex Regatta, an international sailing competition that adds another fun thing to do in the area. Magens Bay has some of the loveliest beaches in the area, and you can always snorkel through Coki Point if you prefer being in the water.


Nevis hosts some of the Caribbean World Cup's cricket matches during the month of March. With a tropical lagoon and the background of Mount Nevis, Pinney's Beach has soft, golden sand to enjoy.

Palawan, Philippines

Honda Bay is well known to serious scuba divers. The marine life off the coast peaks in March, with incredible diving.
