By Kanika from SamBoat - August 22, 2023

As September unfolds, it heralds the commencement of classes and ushers in the transition from summer to autumn in the northern hemisphere. At SamBoat, we perceive the onset of this month as an exceptional opportunity to embark on a sailing adventure during a season marked by diminished crowds. Importantly, prices are also more accessible at this time. This article will help you choose the destination for you this September.

1) Lisbon

Portugal stands out as one of Europe’s premier destinations boasting exquisite weather throughout September. Nowhere is this more evident than in the captivating expanse of Lisbon and its environs, where temperatures hover comfortably between 20 and 28 degrees Celsius. This inviting climate creates an optimal setting for indulging in a boat rental experience, with a plethora of awe-inspiring destinations beckoning just beyond Lisbon’s shores.

One such gem is the expansive Caparica beach, stretching over an impressive 25 kilometers. A haven for sports enthusiasts, this coastal haven offers ideal conditions for engaging in thrilling activities like kitesurfing and surfing.

Venturing slightly further along the coast from Lisbon, the alluring enclave of Cascais on the renowned Portuguese Riviera emerges as a prime recommendation. Accessible within 40 minutes to an hour by train or car, Cascais boasts some of the region’s most magnificent beaches. So splendid are these shores that they once served as the favored retreat of Portuguese royalty, infusing the area with an air of regal charm that continues to captivate both locals and visitors alike.

2) Mexico

September is the best month of the year to visit Mexico, if you are interested in learning about its culture, especially on September 15 and 16, you must be here if you choose this country as your destination. This is because Mexicans celebrate the national day of Mexico, where green, white, and red color the streets of the cities. Celebrate by trying their tacos with a glass of michelada, listening to their famous mariachi, and dancing the traditional dance “El jarabe tapatío”.

And as is known, the beaches of Mexico are among the most recognized in the world and here we tell you which ones you should navigate and visit with a boat rental in Mexico in September.

A country that has been telling stories for thousands of years, where several empires were established in these lands over the years. Turkey has incredible landscapes and coasts that are truly a luxury to enjoy. Visit Turkey in September and you will observe the turquoise color of its waters, especially on the turquoise coast, where it contains some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean for many people. We recommend doing a charter with this sailing itinerary in Göcek.

In addition, in Turkey the weather in September is incredible, it varies between 23 and 31 degrees on average, so renting a boat in Göcek and exploring the Aegean Sea is a tremendous panorama for September, cheer up!

4) Balearic islands

The favorite destination of the Mediterranean does not rest in September, although the heat begins to drop, the weather remains in very good conditions to visit Mallorca, Menorca, or Ibiza, with temperatures around 28 degrees. The sea temperature remains warm and is above 23 degrees. Not only the temperature drop, but the prices also and you will find yourself with greater availability to find a place to stay.

If you go to Mallorca and you like art, you can visit the “Nit de l’art” which is scheduled from the 15th to the 17th of September. In Ibiza, you will find the “Closing party” of several clubs. In Menorca, you can visit the wine route, since it is harvest time, ideal for wine lovers. Can’t decide which place in the Balearic Islands to visit? Check our sailing itineraries in the Balearic Islands and you will be able to decide more easily.
