Perhaps this end-of-summer heatwave has made you want to escape for one final holiday before dark and moody autumn hits.
And the good news is that destinations will be considerably less busy now we’re in term time, too.
If you’re currently looking for a last-minute getaway this month, the team at Skyscanner have named a top location for a September break.
The travel team say Ibiza is their destination of choice for this time of year, with temperatures still as high as 27 degrees on average. So this could be the ideal spot to go to later this month when things cool down in the UK.
Laura Lindsay, Skyscanner’s travel trends and destination expert, said: ‘Even if you don’t want to go clubbing, there are many other things to do on this beautiful Balearic island.
‘Take a walk along the historical centre of Dalt Vila, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, populated with 16th century, Renaissance bastions. Stroll the old marketplace and of course, check out Ibiza’s best beaches to take your pick of sand and sun.’
Another September favourite is Croatia with Gothic Renaissance cathedrals and old cobblestone towns to explore.
Laura said: ‘Croatia is also blessed with endless shores surrounded by lush forests, where you can enjoy an extension to your summer stretched out on secluded coves. Head to Kraljicina beach, on the island of Nin, for its long strip of sand and beach bars, or find the 800+ yards of sandy strip surrounded by pine trees at Sakurun beach.’
If neither of those take your fancy, the third spot recommended for a September break is Albania – with Laura describing it as ‘rising as a real contender.’
She added: ‘With beaches that rival its Mediterranean neighbours and culture galore, it’s one to watch.’
