20 Best Honeymoon Destinations in March

Pack your bags and get ready for some fun in the sun (or snow). Here are the best honeymoon destinations in March around the world.

Planning a honeymoon involves a lot of work (and sometimes good luck) and deciding where to go or the best time to visit isn’t always a walk in the park.

But with a little research (we’re here to help), timing the perfect honeymoon is easier than you think. One of our favorite months for a romantic trip? March, of course.

What makes spring such a great time for a romantic vacation? Temperatures are slowly warming up, flowers are beginning to bloom, and you can still find great hotel rates in some of our favorite destinations.

Here’s a look at 20 of the best March honeymoon spots in the world.

March Honeymoon Destinations 

Nassau, Bahamas

Best For: Luxurious Beach Honeymoon

Nassau, Bahamas

When we think of Caribbean Honeymoons, the Bahamas always jump off the page. Why? The near-perfect balance of luxury accommodations, nightlife, and outdoor activities makes it an easy choice – as long as you go at the right time of year.

March lands right between peak tourist season and the long stretch of hurricane winds and rain, making it the best time to visit.

It also doesn’t hurt that one of the best Sandals Resorts is in the gorgeous capital city of Nassau, offering all-inclusive honeymoon resorts with just about every amenity you can dream of.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7-10 Days
Suggested Stay: Sandals Royal Bahamian 

Florence, Italy

Best For: Art & Architecture

Florence, Italy

If your idea of romance is strolling hand in hand through ancient city streets, marveling at Gothic and Renaissance masterpieces, Florence is the best place for a honeymoon in March.

You can stop by the beautiful cathedral known as the Duomo or the city’s longstanding town hall at Palazzo Vecchio before seeing David of Michelangelo at the Galleria dell’Accademia or the acclaimed collection of paintings at the 16th-century Uffizi Gallery.

March offers temperate weather, cheaper accommodations, and far fewer people in line for the most popular museums and landmarks.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5-7 Days
Suggested Stay: Sina Villa Medici


Best For: Stargazing on Your Honeymoon 

Rovaniemi, Finland

March is a special time for couples who want to see the Northern Lights because the Vernal Equinox sets up one of the most potent times of the year for viewing the brilliant greens, blues, and purples over the dark, arctic skies.

Finland is a fabulous place for honeymooners who want to see the famous celestial event, and the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is one of the most romantic and unique honeymoon spots around.

Located in Saariselkä Fell, the resort offers log cabins or glass igloos, the latter setting up perfect nighttime stargazing opportunities.

Looking for things to do in the daytime? Enjoy local dishes like freshly caught salmon at the hotel restaurant or relax in a smoke sauna, which combines steam and campfire smoke to produce a truly unique spa experience.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5-7 Days
Suggested Stay: Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

Cairo, Egypt

Best For: A Honeymoon of a Lifetime

Cairo, Egypt

We think Cairo is one of the most romantic honeymoon locations you can pick anywhere, and March is the best time to go.

Temperatures range between 56°-76°F, the crowds are easing up at the Pyramids of Giza, and hotel rates are still reasonable, even at luxury properties.

Want to explore what’s in town? You can shop at wonderful bazaars like Khan el Khalili and get a table at hotspots like Garden Promenade Café without fighting peak tourist season wait times.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5 Days
Suggested Stay: Le Riad Hotel de Charme

Stowe, Vermont, USA

Best For: Honeymoon in New England

Stowe, Vermont, USA

New England is one of the most romantic areas in the USA. Couples flock here throughout the year for its pristine fall colors, rich history, and charming villages.

But March is actually the perfect time to visit if you want to hit the slopes in the charming town of Stowe, Vermont. The weather is warming up a bit, but the average monthly snowfall is still around 7 inches, giving you every chance to enjoy some fresh powder.

Stowe Mountain Resort has 100 trails you can access from a dozen lifts, making it a perfect option for couples who want to spend lots of time on the slopes.

When you’re ready for romance, the luxury hotels and romantic restaurants like the adorable Dining Room & Tavern at Edson Hill never cease to charm.

Vancouver, Canada

Best For: Nightlife and Adventure 

Vancouver, Canada

One reason we like a lot of honeymoon destinations in March is that it often allows you to take advantage of nearly everything a location offers. Perfect example? Vancouver, Canada.

The weather is beginning to warm up, making a stroll in the park, an evening of bar hopping, or a sightseeing cruise in the harbor more pleasant. But you can also drive to nearby Whistler Mountain for some of the most exciting ski terrain anywhere in the world.

Our advice? Spend a few days in Vancouver exploring the museums and restaurants or trying cocktails at spots like Botanist Bar before heading to Whistler if you want to extend your trip.

Suggested Stay: Loden Hotel

Cancun, Mexico

Best For: White Sand Beaches

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun has a bit of a reputation as a party town. And yes, it does have lots of spring break hotspots, pool parties, and outdoor adventures. But married couples can still have fun, too, right?

In all seriousness, Cancun offers much more than meets the eye, with some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in Mexico. And March is a great time to go, with an average high temperature around 85°F.

Plan for relaxing days at Playa Delfines, underwater adventures diving at Punta Nizuc, and day trips to incredible landmarks places like Tulum, Chichen Itza, and Playa del Carmen that are well within reach.

Turks & Caicos

When we think of the perfect way to start your marriage, relaxing on white sand beaches is a natural choice.

Suggested Stay: The Palms

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Best For: Hidden Honeymoon Gem

Halong Bay (Vietnam) 

Southeast Asia boasts some of the world’s most idyllic beaches and honeymoon resorts, but Halong Bay still manages to stay somewhat of a secret.

Lisbon, Portugal

Best For: Honeymoon for Foodies

Lisbon (Lisboa), Portugal

If you haven’t heard about the food scene in Lisbon yet, you’re in for a treat. You can eat some of the freshest seafood in Europe at hotspots like Time Out Market, Cervejaria Ramiro, and Nunes Real Marisqueira.

Lisbon is a wonderful cosmopolitan city with great rooftop bars, historical landmarks like the medieval São Jorge Castle, and a charming tram system that helps get you up the seven hills in style.

The secret has been out for a while now, but springtime is a great chance to explore the city before the summer tourism season begins.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5-7 Days
Suggested Stay: Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

Udawalawe National Park, Sri Lanka

Best For: Exotic Safari Honeymoon 

Udawalawe National Park

March isn’t the best month for safari honeymoons, as many top destinations experience heavy rains, making it harder to spot wildlife.

But Udawalawe National Park experiences its driest days, and you’ll have ample opportunities to see the elephants, wild cats, and water buffalo.

Don’t hesitate to book a safari at Yala National Park, about an hour away. Why? You’ll have the best chance of seeing leopards in this popular park.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10 Days
Suggested Stay: Jetwing Yala

Siem Riep, Cambodia

Best For: Visiting a UNESCO World Heritage Site 

Siem Riep, Cambodia

The Khmer Empire ruled over present-day Cambodia for centuries, and Angkor Wat is a beautiful example of the exceptional detail they put into their cities and temples, remaining the world’s largest religious structure to this day. 

Walking around the 400 acres, you can discover something new around every corner, with romantic stories chiseled into the bas reliefs.

Siem Riep is just 15 minutes from the historical marvel and offers contemporary urban charm for visitors looking for a unique honeymoon. Ready to celebrate? You can party the night away with expats, locals, and fellow honeymooners at one of many great spots in town.

March is starting to heat up, but if you go earlier in the month, you can find some bargain rates and still enjoy ideal weather.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7-10 Days
Suggested Stay: Eightfold Urban Resort

Malaga, Spain

Best For: An Idyllic European Honeymoon

Malaga, Spain

In the summer, Malaga heats up as a beach destination for couples and singles alike. But the best time to plan a honeymoon in Malaga is actually spring. 

There is so much more to do here than lie on the sandy beaches with a cocktail. Of course, that’s great too, if you get lucky with the weather.

But arriving in March allows you to explore the Moorish architecture at The Alcazaba and Castillo de Gibralfaro or ancient ruins at the Roman Theatre before the summer crowds start filtering in.

It’s one of our favorite off-the-radar honeymoon locations, but the secret won’t be under wraps much longer. So enjoy an evening at Tapas at Cortijo de Pepe or visit the trendy Pompidou Centre before the crowds begin filling them up.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5-7 Days
Suggested Stay: Palacio Solecio

Tokyo, Japan

Best For: Bright Lights and Cherry Blossoms

Tokyo, Japan

When we think of a Japan Honeymoon, we instantly imagine ourselves in Tokyo. One of the most vibrant cities anywhere in the world, it’s filled with exciting things to do and beautiful luxury hotels.

But our favorite reason for a March honeymoon in Tokyo? Cherry blossoms are beginning to hit their peak at the end of the month. 

Imagine beautiful shades of pink and red flowers above bustling city streets and tranquil canals. Head to Ueno Park for the most cherry blossoms in one place, or simply lose yourself in the city to find your own romantic spot under a storybook tree.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Mandarin Oriental

Costa Rica

Best For: Hiking in the Jungle

Rio Celeste Costa Rica

Costa Rica is always beautiful, but March allows you to see the rainforests and beaches when the weather is sunny, warm, and mostly dry. You may still see rain during the day, but showers are usually short-lived.

Explore the jungles at Corcovado National Park, hike to La Fortuna Waterfall near Arenal Volcano, and look for amazing wildlife like sloths, monkeys, and toucans while you’re there.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 10-14 Days
Suggested Stay: The Springs Resort & Spa at Arenal

Clearwater, Florida, USA

Best For: Honeymoon Island

Clearwater, Florida, USA

Honeymoon Island is one of Florida’s best spots (with the most fitting name) to celebrate your walk down the aisle. Why? It’s home to 4-miles of pristine beaches you can only reach by water. 

Located near the bustling beach town of Clearwater, you’ll have plenty of chances to lay out in the sun, with March highs in the 70s.

We think this one’s already perfect, but if you go at the end of the month, you may be able to catch the annual sand castle competition at the Sugarland Festival. Maybe you’ll start your marriage off on a winning streak.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 7 Days
Suggested Stay: Fenway Hotel, Autograph Collection

Melbourne, Australia

Best For: Action-Packed Days and Nightlife

Australia is the perfect honeymoon location for couples who want nonstop adventure until the sun goes down. Melbourne offers this, plus some of the best nightlife you’ll find anywhere.

Obergurgl, Austria

Best For: Winter Weather Honeymoon

Obergurgl, Austria

A March honeymoon can still mean cozying up and looking at snowflakes falling outside your window. And if snow skiing down the mountain before warming up with wine and a romantic meal is your thing, we’re here for it, too.

Obergurgl, Austria, might not be the first name you think of in the Alps, but it’s one of the best honeymoon spots in Europe.

The unassuming mountain town is relaxed, has amazing snow, and enough easy-to-moderate ski runs to entertain nearly any couple. You can also find plenty of places to eat and drink, like the whimsical TOP Mountain Crosspoint Pub or the romantic restaurant with a view at TOP Mountain Star.

Suggested Honeymoon Duration: 5 Days
Suggested Stay: Hotel Gurglhof Superior

Practical Tips for Planning Your March Honeymoon 

Determine Your Budget

Grand Canal and Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, Venice, Italy

Start planning ahead, and know your budget before deciding on your location. March is an affordable time to visit many warm-weather destinations, but some are cheaper than others. 

March is Spring Break 


A lot of colleges and even high schools celebrate spring break in March.

If you’re not comfortable with the idea of sharing swimming pools and beaches with party-goers, you may want to avoid tropical honeymoon destinations altogether, or hold off for another month.

Timing Matters in March

Toji temple, Kyoto Japan

Whether you’re planning a winter getaway or a sunny beachside retreat, the weather changes a great deal from the beginning to the end of the month. Look into local weather trends and how they’ll affect your plans before booking.
