Where is it hot in March? From Turkey to Cape Verde – 5 sunny short-haul destinations | Travel News | To travel

Spring in the UK could bring warmer temperatures and sunnier days, but as travel rules ease the promise of sunny beaches is within reach. Although large swaths of Europe are just beginning to warm up in March, you don’t need to travel far to get a taste of the tropics. Where should you visit this March?


Tenerife is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, located off the coast of West Africa and as a result enjoys scorching temperatures.

Often hailed as a winter sun destination, the thermometer starts to rise as the spring months approach.

March offers average highs of around 21°C and very little rainfall.

The average flight time to Tenerife from the UK is four hours and 15 minutes, depending on your departure and arrival airports.

The Algarve, Portugal

The Algarve is the southernmost region of Portugal, known for its stunning beaches and golf courses.

As a result, the area is hugely popular with British holidaymakers looking to relax in the sun.

Although the weather in March is a bit cooler than in the summer months, it allows for plenty of exploration and is a great time for those who want to enjoy outdoor activities without overheating.

The average high temperature is around 18°C, so it’s always a good idea to pack a light jacket for the evenings.

Journey times are also particularly fast, with an average flight time of around two hours and 50 minutes from the UK.

Green cap

Cape Verde is arguably a bit of a stretch when it comes to short-haul destinations, but at just six hours on average, flight times are still bearable.

And the trip is certainly worth it for the tropical temperatures, sugar-colored sands and rich culture.

Cape Verde is made up of an archipelago and an island country floating off the Atlantic off the west coast of Africa.

As you can imagine, during the summer months the temperatures can be scorching.

In March, however, the average high is around 24°C and there is a 53% chance of a clear sunny day.
