Soak up the winter sun in the Gambia, with virtually no chance of rain in March (or April) and around 10 hours a day of lovely sunshine. The Gambia has the most laidback atmosphere and is ideal for a totally relaxing beach holiday. Kololi is an established resort with plenty of good restaurants, lively bars and nightclubs and, of course, a great beach and, from here you can also stroll along to the quiet and wide sandy Bijilo Beach. For a quieter resort, Cape Point also has a fantastic beach where you can just chill out, seek shade under the palm trees or stroll into the nearby town of Bakau and observe traditional local life.

The Cayman Islands are warm all year round and March is a good time to visit for low humidity and little chance of rain. The 3 islands of Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac that make up the Cayman Islands offer an air of exclusivity and pristine beaches surrounded by the calm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Grand Cayman is the largest island and home to the world famous Seven Mile Beach, the duty-free shopping capital of Georgetown and the beautiful Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park. Nature trails, historic walking tours, snorkelling, fishing and golf are just some of the many activities available to you. The tiny natural and unspoiled island of Little Cayman is just one mile wide and has more than 50 dive sites. Cayman Brac is popular for caving as well as with divers, as it has 3 shipwrecks and, for everyone else, offers quiet beaches and dramatic scenery from sheer cliffs to beautiful tropical flowers. An ideal way to visit all the Cayman Islands could be on a Western Caribbean cruise, which would likely take in Jamaica too.
