Looking for the best surf destinations in March? We’ve got you covered. Our team has worked relentlessly over the past year to put together a list of the very best surf destinations from more than 30 countries worldwide. See our comprehensive breakdown of where to surf and when below.
If you’re looking to try surfing for the first time this March, head to North America. Both California and Florida offer great conditions for beginners at this time of year. Continue south and you’ll also find Mexico and Nicaragua to offer a consistent and gentle swell throughout the month of March, perfect for beginners.
For intermediate surfers, March is one of the best times to take a surf trip. You have your pick of destinations. Head to the Indonesian islands of Bali and Lombok to soak up the sunshine and tropical vibes. If you’re willing to brave the cooler waters, Ireland and the UK offer consistent waves and dramatic landscapes. For warmer waters, continue south to the rocky islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Or, if you’re looking for a unique surf trip experience, book your flights to Morocco where you can hitch a ride on a camel to your local surf spot.
Options can be limited for surfers looking for 8ft+ waves at this time of year. But we’ve found two dependable destinations for you. In Europe, we recommend heading to the Southwest coast of France, where you can still find 6-10ft waves daily. The only drawback is it’s still pretty cold in March. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a warm-weather destination, pack your bags for Hawaii and chase the monster waves that made this island famous.
