Must-see: coastal village Puerto Mogán; the dunes of Playa de Maspalomas
Gran Canaria has more than 80 beaches, making it the perfect destination for sun-seekers wanting a seaside retreat - average temperatures in March hit about 19 degrees. Located just off northwestern Africa, Gran Canaria is one of Spain’s Canary Islands, boasting breathtaking landscapes protected by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve. TUI is a great option for flights from the UK - you can fly to Gran Canaria direct from Gatwick in about four hours!
Must-see: the Kings Park botanic gardens; Penguin Island
If you’re serious about finding some sunshine, you might need to head further afield. Treat yourself to an Antipodean experience in Western Australia’s capital, Perth. A visit now means you’ll make the tail end of summer, missing the worst of the tourist rush but still getting the glorious weather - expect average temperatures of around 29 degrees! Although public transport in the city is great, it’s worth hiring a car if you want to make a few day-trips out to the surrounding areas. With lively bars, bustling markets and miles of white sandy shores, Perth’s hard to beat.
Must-see: the Picasso museum; the beachside bars at Pedregalejo
Here at vouchercloud, we can’t get enough of Spain - and the southern coast of Málaga is the perfect spot to catch some rays while we wait for the UK to defrost! Sangria, seafood and sunshine are all on the cards in this Andalusian hotspot, and the city is rich in culture for those wanting to explore more than just the beach. Find an inexpensive Airbnb close to the water and enjoy tasty tapas while you work on that tan. Bliss!
Must-see: The Titanic exhibition, the Secret Garden amusement park
Sin City needs no introduction, and it’s a great spot for sunshine this time of year. From stunning stage shows to glitzy casinos, it’s a playground for those wanting to let their hair down! It’s easy to forget that Nevada encompasses more than just the Strip - must-see experiences also include the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. Check out our Virgin Holidays vouchers to save on a package deal that fits in all the highlights. Just make sure you pack your sunscreen - the desert can be scorching this time of year!
