Spring break is, perhaps, the best possible time for a vacation. There are plenty of great spring break travel options, but the one thing most people want during this time is sunny weather. Here, we’ve made a list of some of the best places you can visit for a sunny spring break vacation this year:

Cape Verde

Located in Senegal, this group of islands gives visitors a taste of Portugal since the Portuguese began settling here in the 15th century. Sal, the most well-known of the Cape Verde islands, has several restaurants and hotels. The average temperature is approximately 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and there’s lots of sunshine.


Florida is known as the Sunshine State for a reason—it gets 2,800 hours of sunshine all year. If you want a destination different from the usual Miami or Orlando, consider New Smyrna Beach. Just an hour away from the Orlando Airport, this destination has art galleries, delicious seafood, and great surfing spots.


Havana, Cuba, receives approximately 2,150 hours of sunshine throughout the year and around seven hours of sunlight daily. The average temperatures range between 73 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit in the spring. This city is colorful and fascinating, in addition to being novel and unexplored by most Americans.


With a usual temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit, this island is a sun lover’s dream. Mauritius has it all—waterfalls, pristine beaches, hiking trails, and stunning reefs. If you’re someone looking for an active, sporty vacation, this is your destination.


This city, nicknamed Sunny Nelson, is located on the Southern Island and faces Tasman Bay. It receives 2,500 hours of sunshine throughout the year, the most received anywhere in New Zealand. The Abel Tasman National Park is one of the most popular tourist destinations. However, there are many remote places you can explore if you want a quieter spring break vacation.

If you’re considering a US city for a spring break vacation, Los Angeles, Denver, and Las Vegas are some great options.
