The month of September is one of the most beautiful to spend holidays along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea avoiding the overcrowding of August and enjoying a pleasant and not too hot climate. Italy, Spain, Mediterranean France (Corsica and Côte d’Azur), Greece etc. are perfect destinations for the month of September. The rest of Europe also has a pleasant climate in September. The period between the end of August and the beginning of September is also the best time to see the flowering Heather (Erica) in Scotland.
East African countries (Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique), Southern Africa (Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia), the large island of Madagascar and the other islands of the Indian Ocean such as the island of Mauritius, Zanzibar and the islands of the Seychelles archipelago continue to be in their relatively dry season. In South Africa, from August to November, you can spot whales along the coast between Cape Town and Hermanus.
In the city of Rio de Janeiro the months between June and September are the least rainy months of the year. In Salvador Bahia, September is the driest month of the year. The Pantanal and the Amazon in Brazil have one of the least rainy months of the year in September. September is a good month to visit the Andean highlands of Chile, Bolivia and Peru where the weather is cool by day and cold at night but the days are dry and clear. The United States is an ideal destination to visit in September, in the areas of the parks of the Far West there is no longer the suffocating heat that characterizes the central months of summer, the days are always quite long and the climate is mild. Even large American cities like New York can be visited without problems during this period.
September continues to be a good time to visit the islands of the South Pacific (French Polynesia, Samoa, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji and New Caledonia) and the east coast of Australia: the coast of the Great Barrier Reef. Northern Australia is also good to visit in September.
