Average temperature in Rhodes in September: 28°C
Rhodes is the most popular of all the Greek Islands – and for good reason. The biggest of the Dodecanese Islands comes with over 200 kilometres’ worth of coastline, home to beaches that look like they’ve been lifted straight off the front of a postcard. And if you’re looking to soak up the last of the summer sun on a holiday in September, Rhodes is the perfect spot. With average temperatures hitting the 28-degree mark, your vitamin D fix will be sorted for the autumn, and it’s just a four-hour flight from the UK.

Average temperature in Fuerteventura in September: 28°C
We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again – the Canary Islands are the go-to holiday destination for close-to-home sun that shines pretty much year-round, and Fuerteventura is no exception. It’s also touted as the best in the Canaries for beaches. Its coast unravels from the empty sweeps at Cofete to the bar-lined stretches in Jandia. Then there’s the Parque Natural de Corralejo– a string of wind-rippled white-sand beaches, with miles of footprint-free dunes. Fuerteventura’s position just off the coast of Africa means sunny days aren’t heard to come by, even outside of high season, as September averages around the 28 degrees mark, with eight hours of sunshine a day.

Average temperature in Croatia in September: 25°C
If you put together a dating bio for Croatia, it’d read something like this – someone who’s interested in history, hiking and secluded sunbathing. And the date offers would come rolling in. The Eastern European gem might’ve been a latecomer to the tourism scene, but it’s sure making up for lost time. The good news? You can still expect warm weather in September – the mercury sits around 25 degrees, which is spot on for sunbathing and dining al fresco. It’s not too hot for sightseeing, either, if you’re after a city break in the likes of Dubrovnik or Split.

Average temperature in Egypt in September: 36°C
Almost everything in Egypt is world-renowned – whether it’s the Great Pyramid of Giza, cultural cities like Cairo, Nile cruises, or the world’s most famous canal. And where sun-worshippers are concerned, the beaches are hard to beat. Along the Red Sea Coast and Sinai Peninsula, the caramel-coloured sands are soaked in sun year-round. We’re talking high temperatures of 36 degrees or more, even in September, so it’s a great place to make you forget that autumn’s in full swing at home. Not sure where to stay? Hurghada is the head honcho beach resort, popular for both family holidays and adults-only escapes.

Average temperature in Orlando in September: 32°C
Orlando follows the classic USA mantra – bigger is better. Think mega-sized theme parks, huge golf courses, and multi-storey malls. It’s no wonder this place regularly tops the charts as the most visited city in the States. Orlando’s not all manmade marvels, though. The city’s wedged between parks, lakes, springs and forests. Head up to Crystal River to spot wild manatees, watch rockets take off at the Kennedy Space Center or bask in the sun on Cocoa Beach. September in Orlando sees temperatures that’re far more comfortable than the summer months, but it’s still very much shorts and t-shirts weather, which sits in the high twenties and low thirties.
