September may mean the end of summer, but not the end of fun and good weather . Many Spanish towns live their best moment during the ninth month of the year, either because their patron saint festivities are celebrated , because of their busy schedule of events and activities, or because the tourist masses disappear to make way for a calmer and more relaxed atmosphere .

And not only that, the temperatures are still pleasant to go to the beach, but without having to suffer the suffocating heat of July and August, and the prices of hotels and transport are usually cheaper . So, if we still have a few days of vacation left or we are looking for a place to make a weekend getaway, places like Tarifa, Altea or Es Caló de Sant Agustí await us with open arms.

Tarifa (Cadiz)

The southernmost point of continental Europe, the paradise of water sports, the capital of the wind… Tarifa combines nature and quality tourism in a small space in the south of the province of Cádiz . And its good temperatures during the month of September, with maximum temperatures around 25º C, give us the perfect opportunity to extend the summer season a little longer.Tarifa beach, Cadiz.

But it’s not just the numbers on the thermostat that push us to visit the coastal town, but rather its wide range of activities that won’t let us get bored for a single second. The Levante wind hits the extensive beaches of Tarifa with force, turning them into a place of worship for lovers of kitesurfing .

It is the idyllic and popular beach of Bolonia that attracts more visitors year after year. Wild, colossal and incredibly beautiful, the beach stretches for 3,800 meters with fine white sand. Bolonia beach.

On the other hand, on other beaches such as Los Lances , the sky and sea are filled with kitesurf boards and kites while athletes ride the waves and rise into the air with the force of the wind. In addition, fans of this sport have several events in the month of September and Tarifa hosts the Youth World Cup (between September 8 and 11), in which the young promises of the discipline will be able to put their skills to the test. . And the following week, between September 16 and 18, the Spanish Kiteboarding Cup will take place .

But the agenda of activities in Tarifa does not end there, in this month in which we say goodbye to summer, the town still has a lot to offer. As its Tourist Office informs, from September 2 to 11 the Royal Prison hosts the cultural exhibition ‘Let’s play’, from 3 to 11 the Royal Fair and the Fiestas of Tarifa are celebrated and from 16 to 18 carries out the TARIFA FOLK Music Festival.Kitesurfing in Tarifa.Kitesurfing at Tariff.

In addition, “in September we also have ornithological activities because it is the month of the farewell of migratory birds”, they explain. In this sense, there is an extensive program that includes outings to observe and identify species, talks, courses, workshops and exhibitions.

Altea (Alicante)

Altea has history, a vast culture and a rich architectural heritage . Nature, long beaches and green spaces. A rich cuisine based on fish, shellfish and vegetables. Seen this way, it would be easier to count what it does not have, and it is that even more elements should be added to the list, such as its good weather, which leaves us with maximums of 26º C degrees during the ninth month of the year.

Furthermore, as we would expect from the Costa Blanca, its beaches do not disappoint. The coastline of the municipality is marked by the extensive sandbanks that are combined with the cliff areas and the coves that offer us small oases of disconnection. In this way, we will find spaces for all tastes, from areas with all kinds of services to enjoy a comfortable day in a deckchair, to more secluded places with practically virgin nature. 

The beaches of L’Olla, Solsida, Cap Negret, La Roda or Cala del Mascarat are just a few examples.L'Olla beach.L’Olla beach. 

And the good temperatures are not the only claim to continue visiting the town in September, since it is now when in the town “the patron saint festivities are celebrated and there is a program of cultural activities”, they tell us from their Tourist Office. From the 23rd to the 27th, the streets of the town are filled with music, festivities and fun, which this year will even double, since it is the 40th anniversary of its iconic Moors and Christians Festival .

Caló de Sant Agustí (Formentera)

Nobody doubts that Formentera is a haven of peace. A trip to a Mediterranean island is synonymous with tranquility and relaxation, and if we do it outside of the tourist season, but when the weather is still favourable, then we hit the jackpot. It is Caló de Sant Agustí.It’s Caló of Saint Agustí.

And if we already want to live an authentic experience and enjoy the true essence of Formentera, our place is the charming town of Es Caló de Sant Agustí. A small nucleus of white houses and maritime essence form this town. 

Here we will not only swim in the clean waters of the natural port, but to the west we will come across the quiet sandy coves of Six Platgetes . Although, if we go to the east, the landscape changes radically, since there our eyes will be surprised by the high and steep cliffs of La Mola. Ses PlatgetesSix Platgetes.

To visit this special and changing environment, the Formentera Tourist Office recommends us to do the Green Route 25 , which runs along the Camí de Sa Pujada, the historic route that goes up to La Mola. The result will be impressive views of the island and its wonderful nature.
