March Honeymoon Destinations in Oceania / The South Pacific

Best March Honeymoon Destinations at a glance: New Zealand | Australia

We love Australia for a romantic honeymoon road trip. Although March is the beginning of Autumn, the weather can still be hot and it is still the rainy season in Queensland.

Many couples choose March for their Australia honeymoon as the risk of adverse weather is lower than in the previous months. Although it can still be extremely hot in the Red Centre around Uluru.

The most popular trip for first timers is the east coast drive along the Bruce Highway from Cairns to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Beaches, scenery, outstanding cities, wildlife and, of course, the Great Barrier Reef.

We love Western Australia, too. This lesser visited part of Australia has desert landscapes, national parks, pink lakes, and powdery sand on Indian Ocean beaches, complete with extraordinary coral reefs.

March is one of the best months to visit majestic New Zealand. Start in Auckland in the North Island and grab a car and motorhome drive to the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown in South Island.

Stop by peaceful lakes, world-class vineyards, magical mountains, glaciers, beaches. Take to the open road for too many adventure activities to mention.

New Zealand is one of our favourite destinations for a honeymoon in March. 

If you were wondering where to honeymoon in March and were thinking of the South Pacific, unfortunately it is still the rainy season in paradise islands like Fiji and the beautiful archipelago, French Polynesia and it’s stunning islands like Tahiti, Moore and the famed Pearl of the Pacific, Bora Bora.

You could be lucky and just get some showers, but there could be cyclones too.

If an overwater bungalow is on your list, it might be worth comparing with the Maldives, as it’s dry season there.

March Honeymoon Destinations in Europe

Best March Honeymoon Destinations at a glance: Canary Islands | The Alps | Lapland

Spring has arrived in Europe and while it may not be shorts and t-shirt weather in much of the continent, days can be bright and crisp.

You should still expect some rain, but it can be a lovely time for exploring European cities. Eat tapas in Madrid, pasta in Rome and visit a boulangerie Paris without the heavy crowds and hot temperatures.

For beaches, the safest bet would be destinations like Spain’s Canary Islands. Tenerife is ideal for stargazing and has Michelin Star restaurants for foodies.

Later in the month, destinations like Cyprus and Portugal’s Madeira and Greece’s Crete will start to warm up but the temperature gauge usually won’t hit 20 °C / 70 °F until April.

We cannot promise warm and rain free weather on a March honeymoon in Europe. Late April and May is a safer bet for beach weather.

For couples seeking a unique minimoon or honeymoon in March, consider a winter like adventure in Finland or Scandinavia.

Stay in a cosy winter honeymoon hotel. Earlier in the month, you’ll get the last of the snow and can go dog sledding and skiing.
