The best way to make sure that the pleasures of summer last as long as possible before temperatures start to drop is to go to where the sun is. And luckily, the range of sunny destinations in September is almost as wide as the world is large, and thetraveler.net will guide you to the one that suits you best. Let’s go!
In Southern Europe
The Mediterranean coasts are still very popular in September. Everywhere, the summer heatwave has given way to mild temperatures, perfect for taking long walks on the beach. It is time for romance on the French Riviera, with its beautiful Cerulean colours. Croatia, Andalusia and the Algarve have regained their charms. Sunshine, warm sea and summer atmosphere... everything is there, except for crowds of July and August tourists. Finally, the ninth month of the year is the ideal time to visit Puglia. Between caves, expanses of sand and idyllic coves, the heel of the Italian boot is home to amazing seaside jewels.
On an island in the Mediterranean
September is the blessed month of the ancient Greek Gods. From the Cyclades to Crete, from Cyprus to Rhodes, the blue horizon is more captivating than ever. But you may prefer experiencing the Corsican or Sardinian late summer's atmosphere. Luckily, the hordes of tourists have deserted the trails, maquis and coves, which means that you can relax in peace and quiet. The same feeling of relaxation can be found in the Balearic Islands, bathed in the 25°C Mediterranean Sea. But then again you also have the choice between the secret coves of Menorca, the electro vibes of Ibiza, the picturesque villages of Mallorca and the biodiversity of Formentera. The hardest thing is only where to choose....
Off the coasts of Africa
Turquoise water and fine sandy beaches and coconut trees - there’s no doubt, paradise does really exist and it's in the middle of the Indian Ocean. In September, the air and sea temperatures are perfect. You only have to choose the lagoon in which you want to play a castaway. But choosing between Mauritius, the Seychelles and Zanzibar is almost impossible. To avoid having to make a decision, why not sail towards the Canary Islands, and bask under the September sun. The seven islands are not limited to “Sol y playa” but also offer amazing and unique lunar and subtropical landscapes. There is everything be it for relaxation lovers, hikers, water sports enthusiasts or nightlife lovers.
In Arab-Muslim lands
North Africa is a hypnotic place untouched by time. In September, the sand of Djerba, the water of Dakhla and the light breeze of Essaouira all benefit from the rays of the sun. The mild temperatures allow you to travel through the oases, the desert and the centuries-old cities of Morocco and Tunisia. Peace and quiet also return to the Turkish coastline, dotted with ancient wonders and fragrant vegetation. Travelling during the off-season is always a good idea!
It is well known that the Balinese atmosphere has very few rivals in the world, and even fewer in September, when the weather is dry and mild. You will wake up in a lodge in the middle of a rice field, swim in 28°C water, immerse yourself in the atmosphere and beauty of its temples and climb sacred mountains overlooking its breathtaking nature. Then, still at a gentle pace, you will discover the other pearls of the Sunda Islands. Flores, Sumba and the Gili Islands are full of secret paradises, natural curiosities and unspoilt beaches. And who said laziness is a bad thing? Certainly not you, while you're slumped on a beach in Lombok.
On the American continent
On a trip to the West Coast, automatically brings back memories of movie images. So much so that we can easily imagine ourselves effortlessly driving, with our hair floating in the wind, along Highway One route which runs along the Pacific Ocean coast. Of course, like in all the best Hollywood movies, a road-trip will not fail to reveal the amazing seaside landscapes, sheltered between the steep cliffs of California. The excitement will be at its peak when you reach San Diego, with its diverse culture, envied climate and mythical beaches. If you don't want to end things here, head to Hawaii, ideal for travellers looking for seaside and volcanic emotions. September is also the good time to celebrate Brazilian beach culture. All you have to do install your hammock on the beach of Salvador de Bahia, Fernando de Noronha or of the Brazilian Nordeste. And sip a caïpirinha.
Are you dreaming of enjoying the sun at the end of the world, smelling the tiara flowers, dancing the Tamure, basking in the sun on a bungalow on stilts? You need a ticket to the French Polynesia. There are very few places in the world as appropriate to perfect your tan and to make summer last longer. Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea are the promised land of islands lovers. They are true paradises in the middle of the South Pacific. In New Caledonia, which is in the largest lagoon in the world , you will enjoy the incredibly warm and translucent water of the South seas. Corals, beaches and palm trees that you couldn't even have imagined in your wildest dreams.
Destinations you should avoid in September
Central America and the Caribbean are targeted by cyclones and heavy rainfalls. Unless you’re passionate about these conditions, you should avoid venturing to this part of the world in September. Also India and Southeast Asia are still prey to the monsoon season, but not for very long... Be patient!
