With brighter days and rising temperatures, May sits neatly between the year’s start and the vastness of summer. And you won’t always have to travel far to find something rare and unknown.

We’ve hand-picked the ideas below to get your mind racing about where to travel in May. As ever, our luxury travel experts are hand to give you detailed guidance and expert suggestions in choosing your trip.


Where to visit in May


With milder spring temperatures still at play, May is the best time to meander through Morocco. Stay within Marrakech, or pair it with the Agafay Desert and the Atlas Mountains. Beyond, journey to blue-stoned Chefchaouen and coastal Fez.


For an early taste of summer, we love visiting the Amalfi coast in May. Hop in a vintage car for a scenic drive from the cliffs of Positano to the black sand beaches of Sorrento. This is also one of the best times to explore the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum.


Here’s something for the honeymooners. With huge ‘once in a lifetime’ energy, we love its blend of exotic landscapes and intriguing islands. Outrigger canoes, traditional dances, overwater villas, and remote lagoons. You’ll be spoilt for choice. Bliss.


A favourite among couples, we have a particular (ok, huge) soft spot for the meaningful conservation efforts happening in the Sea of Cortez. Read more about this unique area and the new family-focused conservation trip we’re pioneering here in our suggestions on Where to Go in 2023.


Head before the temperature climbs. Combining perfectly with Egypt, Israel or Oman. The highlight must be Petra, though there’s plenty in the way of exclusive Black Tomato experiences (like travelling with a Bedouin family over the dunes). Cooking, Dead Sea, expeditions by camel. Adventurous.


This May, we’re craving the timeless grandeur of France. We’ll take you there. Exclusive access to the cellars of Champagne, spa retreats in Provence, and the sumptuous elegance of the Cote d’Azur. Even a little bit of Corsica to finish things off.
