September is a great month to get away for some last minute sunshine before we batten down the hatches ready for winter. The question is though, where’s hot in September? Well look no further, we have selected an amazing choice of destinations to suit all types of budgets and tastes for your September break.
If you’re looking for a shorter flight time we’d recommend a trip to one of the Spanish Costas. Costa del Sol boasts up to 320 days of sunshine a year and temperatures in September can reach a warm 23°C. On offer is a great mix of destinations such as historic Nerja or if you prefer lively resorts, we would recommend Torremolinos or Fuengirola.
Costa Blanca needs no introduction, in fact, Benidorm has been drawing in the Brits since the 1960’s and is still a top choice for a September break. If you are on a tight budget, look out for some of our top deals in pretty Costa Brava or how about a trip to Costa Dorada?
When it comes to some Greek sunshine in September we would suggest Crete, Rhodes or Kos.
Crete is the largest of the Greek Islands and has average temperatures of 24°C this time of year. We love the cosmopolitan resort of Aghios Nikolaos, however, if you prefer a busier resort we would suggest staying in the Heraklion area.
Rhodes has so many fascinating resorts to choose from. Rhodes Town hits the spot if you are looking for something old and medieval, whereas the resort of Pefkos is great if you like a resort with a few bars but plenty of restaurants.
If you love history and sightseeing, you’ll be in your element on an All Inclusive holiday in Malta. In fact, the country has often been described as an open air museum. You’ll find a whole heap of things to discover such as, prehistoric temples, medieval towns, churches and cathedrals.
Malta has a rugged coastline with plenty of caves to discover or, if you prefer a sandy beach, head to popular Mellieha Bay. Malta holidays are fast becoming a popular choice with young travellers too, with music festivals throughout the year and if you want a boogie when night falls, head to the bustling resort of St Julian’s. With temperatures around 25°C, Malta is well worth a visit in September.
The Canary Islands
Known for its year-round weather, the Canary Islands have been a top choice for many years. Tenerife is the biggest of the islands and has a top mix of resorts from lively Playa de Las Americas to tranquil Playa Paraiso. Siam Park waterpark towers over the resort of Playa de Las Americas and is a great action filled day out for all the family.
Gran Canaria and Furteventura are home to vast areas of sand dunes, Lanzarote on the other hand is most famous for its lunar landscape. One thing’s for sure, you will certainly be able to bask in temperatures around 25°C this time of year.
With an average temperature of 29°C, the tiny Dutch island of Aruba is the place to be if you love warm weather and despite the month of September falling into the Caribbean hurricane season, you can rest assured you won’t be affected as Aruba sits south of the hurricane belt.
Just as you would expect Aruba has warm waters and stretches of white uncrowded beaches. Aruba has lots of events throughout the year from music festival to sporting tournaments. We would recommend a sunset cruise around the island, a perfect end to your day.
Where will September take you…
