Where to find summer when summer ends?
The short summer period quickly disappears from most parts of the world at the beginning of September. Temperatures return to low and travellers who haven’t had time to soak up the sun’s rays see the patches of land that can still offer them a final round of rest before next summer dwindle away. Fortunately, even when the rest of the world is in the doldrums, there are destinations that can still welcome you in the water and at the most clement temperatures. Here are three of the must-see destinations!
Let’s start with one of the world’s most popular destinations: Dubai. At just 23°C (average sea temperature), this is a region where the sun never leaves. The Burj Khalifa is undoubtedly the monument that embodies this city’s willingness to brave the desert and the sky for the comfort and pleasure of the eye. Its fine sandy beaches welcome you all year round, and winter is here for a cosy time. If you’re passing through, don’t miss the Jumeirah Mosque either!
If the United States of America is on your agenda, the destination we recommend is the city that proudly lives up to its nickname, synonymous with sunshine even when elsewhere in the country the skies are rumbling with storms and hurricanes: the “sunshine city”, Florida! With an average temperature of 24°C, it’s the ideal place for an unforgettable family holiday and a chance for the kids to visit the legendary Disney. You’ll probably need a car to get around freely between the beach and the other sublime spots in the city, but a hire car is the preferred option.
We would have liked the political climate to have shifted sufficiently to offer a better guarantee of safety in Egypt. In any case, in the meantime, you should know that the coast near the Red Sea is ideal for water sports. If you don’t want to wait, Morocco will meet your expectations. The political climate and the sun go hand in hand here, and even when the temperature drops below zero towards the south, the coastal areas maintain a healthy dose of summer. Hire a car here and enjoy a little more summer than the rest of the world.
