Fancy a late summer break? (Picture: Getty Images)

Travel has been severely compromised in recent years as a result of the pandemic, but with the vast majority of restrictions now lifted around the world, the summer holiday season has returned – with millions expected to jet off this season in search of sun, sand and sightseeing.

July and August are of course peak season for breaks, with school holidays allowing families to get away, and balmy temperatures to look forward to at many popular destinations.

But if you want to wait until the main holiday season has passed – once the new school term has started, for example – and beat the crowds, you might consider booking a break in September instead.

The good news is that’s a great month to get away, with many resorts and cities still offering plenty of hot weather and sunshine as summer becomes autumn.

Flight time: Two hours, five minutes

If you don’t want to travel too far in search of sun then Nice in France is an excellent option, one which still offers plenty of warm temperatures at this time of year.

If it’s sunbathing you’re after there’s no shortage of places to top up your tan – check out La Reserve – with its diving board – or nearby Villefranche Sur Mer, which served as the location for Julia Stiles’ glitzy drama Riviera.

However there’s no shortage of tourist attractions either – check out the Matisse artwork collection at the Musee Matisse, snap up some bargains in the bustling Cours Saleya, or just take a stroll down the Promenade des Anglais, the famous beachfront walkway which stretches for 7km through town.


Fuerteventura has some visually stunning beaches and plenty of sunshine (Picture: Getty Images)

Temperature: 25 °C
Sunshine hours: Eight hours
Flight time: Four hours 15 minutes

The second largest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is a great option for those looking for a sunshine break, given it boasts around 150km worth of white sandy beaches and a moderate climate all year round.

Although you’re spoiled for choice on the beach front, Sotavento and Corralejo beaches are among the best – the latter boasting sand dunes and a stunning national park. It’s also adjacent to the town of Corralejo, with its shopping, activities for younger family members and vibrant nightlife.

Away from the beaches, you can take a walk up the Calderon Hondo volcano – either unaccompanied or with a guide -as the 525ft trek is worth it for the breathtaking views you’ll get of both Fuerteventura and neighbouring Lanzarote.

Cape Verde

With warm temperatures all year round – reaching pleasant highs of 28 °C in September – the West African nation of Cape Verde is a great choice for those looking for a beach break, with the island of Sal – and its Santa Maria Beach – offering plenty of opportunities for snorkelling and diving.

Kitesurfing is another activity to try – with the winds on the coastlines of Sal and Boa Vista making the conditions perfect for it.

The town of Santa Maria on the island of Sal is also a picturesque spot to visit if you want a break from the beach, offering pretty pastel-coloured buildings and some of the archipelago’s best bars and restaurants.

Temperature: 26°C
Sunshine hours: Eight hours
Flight time: 19 hours
(or longer)

It might not be the easiest place in the world to get to – there are no direct flights from the UK, and you’re potentially looking at two stopovers, in locations such as Los Angeles and Tahiti. All of which can add several hours to the estimated 19 hour flying time.

However it’s worth the effort once you arrive, as the French Polynesian Island is ideal for a visually stunning, luxurious break.

The island is famous for being in the shadow of volcanic Mount Otemanu, as well as for its overwater bungalow accommodation – allowing holidaymakers to literally stay in the waters of its surrounding turquoise blue lagoon.

Florence, Italy

When you’re done with the sightseeing and al fresco meals in the piazzas, you can still pop to the beach to soak up some rays – consider a day trip to Viareggio, about an hour away by train, or Forte del Marmi, known for its luxury resorts and designer boutiques.

Temperature: 27°C
Sunshine hours: Nine hours
Flight time: Two hours

The Mediterranean island of Corsica might have been owned by the French since 1768, but its historical ties to Tuscany also give it an Italian feel – allowing visitors to combine the best of both cultures.

You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches, with over 200 beaches along a coastline stretching for 1000km – check out the stunning Calvi beach which offers 6km of white sand and translucent water, or the popular Palombaggia Beach on the south of the island.

There’s plenty to do away from the beaches as well – walkers will discover plenty of hiking trails and hilltop villages to explore – or you could try paying a visit to a wine estate, or checking out one of the island’s historic towns such as Calvi or Bonifacio.

There’s sunbathing to be had too, with best beaches including Mellieha Bay or Golden Bay – or if you want to see a bit more of the surrounding area you can hop on the ferry from Valletta to Gozo, a stunning archipelago which is great for a day trip.

While summer is peak season for the region, September is also a great time to visit, with the islands offering some pretty gorgeous beaches and unspoiled nature, not to mention one of the largest whale sanctuaries in the world.

Sao Miguel is a good starting point, as the largest of the islands – its vibrant capital Ponta Delgada is the main city in the Azores, with plenty of historic buildings, cobbled streets and squares to explore. And be sure to book yourself on a whale and dolphin watching tour – the season runs from April to October, so it’s perfect timing.

Keep in mind

While Covid travel restrictions appear to be behind us, bear in mind that some countries may still have rules in place – and that things can change at any time.

All the destinations on this list are visitable but before you book anywhere, it’s advisable to check the Foreign Office Travel Advice to ensure the place you plan to visit is open to UK tourists, and whether there are any restrictions or travel warnings you should be aware of.

You should also ensure you have top-tier travel insurance in place that will cover you in the event you test positive and need to extend your stay, or require medical treatment for this or any other illness.
