Where to Holiday in September

Somewhere Hot in September

September is one of the best months of the year for a holiday. The rush of August is over, the children are back to school and the prices are falling. The temperatures have peaked but are still hot enough and the water is comfortably warm. If you are seeking a beach holiday away from crowds, this really is the time to go. You'll find it is above thirty in the likes of Cyprus, Turkey, the southern coast of Spain and the Greek Islands whereas in Northern Europe and Scandinavia things are beginning to cool down. September is the perfect time to explore the Amalfi coast and Pompeii, Rome or Venice. In cities the heat can be oppressive in the height of summer so September is a great month for sightseeing. If you enjoy walking or cycling, you'll find conditions are perfect in September and Northern Spain is a popular spot. There are many organised activity holidays but you can also organise your own as the routes are well marked.

Alternative Holidays in September

Mediterranean cruises are popular at this time with some calling in at cities around the Med and others going as far as Madeira and the Canary Islands. River cruises are also in demand.

September is a good time for taking a city break. There are so many historic towns with stunning architecture just waiting to be explored. If you haven't been to Prague or Dubrovnik, Paris or Rome, Madrid or Barcelona, Venice or Budapest, Bruges or Amsterdam, then you really have missed a treat. Of course there are many more towns and cities that are equally enchanting, but too numerous to mention here.

If you like African wildlife September is the best time to join a safari in Namibia in South-West Africa. It is the end of the dry season in that region and animals are on the move searching for waterholes. Join an organised safari and witness this wonderful spectacle. As well as the wildlife and the amazing scenery, after dark, remember to look to the night sky. With no light pollution, even if you have little interest or knowledge of the stars, you can't fail to be impressed.

Take a long haul flight to the east or the west and you'll find great destinations for September holidays. To the east you'll find you are still in the monsoon period for many of the destinations so be prepared for high humidity. To compensate for the weather, you'll find prices are cheaper. The Maldives and Mauritius are ever popular especially with couples, many of whom are honeymooners.

Travel west and you reach the Americas and the Caribbean. Be aware that September is still in the hurricane season so although you have low season prices, your holiday can be interrupted by tropical storms. If you want a Caribbean holiday in September, book a break on Tobago which lies just outside the hurricane belt. It is a beautiful island with stunning beaches, a relaxed atmosphere and great food. Its coral reef is a great attraction for divers. The west coast of America is always popular at this time as there is so much to see and do. The spectacular scenery of the Grand Canyon and the deserts, the wildness of the National Parks, the long and varied coastline, its towns and cities, together attract enormous numbers of visitors each year.
