    The best places to travel in March are a mixed bag of destinations with warmer weather, as well as summer hotspots enjoying a few quiet months in advance of the peak tourist season. If you are looking to get away to the Mediterranean without the buzz of tourist crowds and don’t mind a bit of cooler – albeit still warm – weather, now is your chance! The Galápagos Islands, Mallorca, India’s Western Ghats, and Türkiye’s Aegean Coast are all at the top of this year’s list of best places to travel in March!

    March is a lovely time of year to set out on a grand adventure in countless destinations around the world, but particularly in the Northern Hemisphere as the cold of winter begins to fade away and the spring season begins to blossom. That isn’t to say that the autumn season of the Southern Hemisphere is a travel dud (far from it!), but there is just something about the new beginnings of spring that makes travel feel especially vibrant and exciting.

    Whether you want to explore one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet, trek through vast deserts, or spend time in the relaxing seaside setting of the Mediterranean, we’re hoping that at least one of the below destinations will appeal to you. Here are some of the best places to travel in March 2023.

    The Best Places to Travel in March Ranked

    Galápagos Islands, Ecuador

    #1 in Best Places to Travel in March

    March in the Galápagos is a bit of a contradictory experience, as it is the warmest month of the year but also the wettest. We think it’s a fair trade-off, as it also offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing and some of the best surfing conditions! If you are looking to experience the Galápagos in all their glory (and don’t mind a bit of rain) then March is a great time to visit!

    Mallorca, Spain

    #2 in Best Places to Travel in March

    There is no denying that Mallorca is a popular travel destination during the summer months, so why not visit in March when things are a bit quieter?! Average temperatures of around 18℃ and low amounts of rainfall provide excellent conditions for hiking and cycling across the island. What are you waiting for?!

    Western Ghats, India

    #3 in Best Places to Travel in March

    March is a great time to visit the mountainous Western Ghats region of India, as you will be avoiding the wet monsoon season. Temperatures in March will still be fairly hot, though the mountain terrain will provide a nice breeze that will help cool you off a bit. If you are looking to explore the mountains and beautifully scenic tea plantations of Kerala and the Western Ghats, then this is a great time to do it!

    Aegean Coast, Türkiye

    #4 in Best Places to Travel in March

    Many people choose to travel to Türkiye’s coast during the height of summer to enjoy the hot weather and incredible beaches, but March - albeit a fair bit cooler - is an excellent time to visit as well! If you enjoy hiking, cycling, or any other outdoor activities and would rather avoid getting baked in the summer sun, then you should consider visiting Türkiye in March.

    #5 in Best Places to Travel in March

    For those who want to travel to Italy in March and are hoping to experience hot Mediterranean weather, the western parts of the island of Sicily might be your only hope, as this is where you will find the warmest temperatures in the country! While not overly hot in March, this region does experience the shortest winter season in the country, allowing you to get out and enjoy the stunning coastal landscape quicker than you would elsewhere in Italy.

    Anyone looking to experience the rich history, culture, and fascinating desert landscapes of Jordan would be wise to do so in March, when temperatures are mild and perfect for exploring! Overnight temperatures can be a little chilly during this time of year, but if you have ever dreamt of visiting Petra or Wadi Rum, this is the time to do it!
