    September Holiday Reviews

    • Where: La Gomera, Canary Islands
    • Who: LB1008
    • When: September

    I went to La Gomera for a few weeks with my family and it was fantastic. The island is a bit of a trek to get to, expect around a 10-12 hr journey including flights, transfer to ferry port and waiting around for the next boat, but we had a few hours to kill in Tenerife which worked out well. Party central it is not, but for me, compared to how built up most of the Canary Islands are, the remoteness and beauty of Gomera was wonderful.
    I stayed on the south coast which is very, very hot and dry and subsequently spent the vast majority of my time there in the water. The beaches were black sand and the sea great for swimming in. I would recommend that you hire a car as the island is fantastic for hiking and is small enough to circumnavigate in a day. Additionally, there are a lot of banana plantations on the island which are great to walk through. If you want a raving nightlife do not come here, but if you want to experience a more authentic experience of the Canary islands or have children this is the perfect place to visit. In the afternoons I would walk down to the local village and sit at one of the tavernas watching everyone else emerge from their siestas (it's a hard life there). Trip wise, dolphin and whale watching is a good thing to do from Gomera and if you are into deep sea fishing that can be arranged. It is only an hour by boat to get to Tenerife so going back over and driving up Mount Teide is pretty impressive (just brace yourself for the sulphur smell at the top).

    • Where: Palma, Majorca
    • Who: kayley
    • When: September

    Majorca often gets branded as a brash and loud haven for 18-30 year olds. It gets a hard time from the press and yet there are so many gorgeous authentically Spanish area's of the island to visit. Palma is hands down one of my favourite European cities. Its a shoppers haven with lots of fantastic cobbled streets full of shops and boutiques to explore. When you are tired there are heaps of eateries and bars ranging from low key tapas places to Michelin star restaurants.

    We always choose to stay just outside Palma in Playa de Palma. As the name suggests Playa de Palma is located right on a beautiful beach that stretches for miles. It is only around a 10-15 minute bus ride from Palma's city centre meaning that you can easily combine a city break with the beach! Playa de Palma has a gorgeous flat promenade allowing you to easily walk the stretch of the beach. The prom is full of reasonably priced restaurants and bars - perfect for cocktails pre-dinner before heading into Palma. If you don't fancy walking the 'strip' there is a noddy train that runs up and down the prom for a low cost. Majorca's aquarium is also located in Playa de Palma - perfect for families and reasonably priced at around 10 euros's per person.

    Our latest trip to the island was in September - the weather was in the 30's each day. We have however also visited in December and we were blessed with temperatures in the early 20's making this an ideal winter break.

    • Where: Latchi, Cyprus
    • Who: Leahlas
    • When: September

    If you head out of Pathos and up over the mountains towards Latchi you will have some of the best views in Cyprus from high up in the winding mountain roads across Pathos and Coral Bay.

    These are tricky narrow winding roads for driving but once over the peak you'll wind down towards Latchi, a little tourist town down on sea level, with little souvenir shops, eateries and a big lobster and seafood restaurant on the beach.

    The beaches here are nicer than the beaches in Pathos, a deep golden clay colour sand mixed with a few small pebbles. The bay seems to be more sheltered than Pathos beaches which had quite choppy sea, it was very calm in comparison.

    If you head south of Latchi just a few miles you'll reach the famous Aphrodite Baths. Hi up above the beaches and baths there are some wonderful cliff top views. It's a steep path of steps down to the little beaches and the baths area so nice for a visit, you wouldn't spend the day on the beach here unless you were prepared for quite a climb back up for toilets and refreshments etc.

    The Aphrodite Baths are a small pool surrounded by greenery, very pretty which legend has it that the mythical Aphrodite bathed there. Lovely area, quite cut off from the busier tourist areas and a perfect choice for a quiet week in the sun.

    • Where: Valencia, Spain
    • Who: Traveladdict
    • When: September

    Valencia

    Valencia was one of those cities that didn't instantly appeal, mainly because I knew very little about it as a tourist destination and it seemed to always be overshadowed by Barcelona. However, last September we stumbled across some super cheap flights and booked a long weekend break to the city.

    My favourite thing about Valencia was that it allows you to combine a city break with a beach holiday. The city itself is really accessible allowing you to spend days on the beach and nights exploring the vibrant nightlife of the city. Public transport (trams & buses) make it easy to navigate between the two areas.

    The beach quality really surprised me as I was expecting a very small, stoney area that was marketed as a 'beach'. I was really wrong. Valencia's beach is glorious and seems to go on forever! There is a lovely promenade lined with stalls selling handicrafts that follows the sandy beach for miles. As day turns to night, its well worth staying close to the beach area as the bars and restaurants really come to life. From this area of town you can also visit the nearby marina which is home to some very exclusive bars.

    Valencia old town is breathtaking. It has extraordinary buildings, great shops, a lively restaurant scene, and great family attractions such as the Oceanogràfic and Bioparc. The central market is also worth a look and is great for grabbing some cheap tapas style picnic food before finding a shady spot in the wonderful gardens that meander throughout the city.

    Valencia definitely surpassed all expectations and I look forward to a second visit.

    • Where: Crete, Greece
    • Who: sean
    • When: September

    We decided to book a 2 week island hopping trip across the Greek islands and Crete was our first stop!

    We managed to get super cheap flights with Thomson and as we were landing into Heraklion quite late, we decided to base ourselves in the islands capital for 2 nights. To be honest, we weren't really sure what to expect but we were really blown away by Heraklion.

    The city is full of medieval charm and we spent our 2 days wandering around the cobbled streets exploring local shops, bars and restaurants. The old town offers some really nice walks giving you the opportunity to explore the fortified enclosure of the Venetian Chandakas which dates back to the 15th century. Of course, as Crete is an island, you are never far from the sea - restaurants line the promenade area creating a really chilled out vibe.

    Nightlife in Heraklion is vibrant - something that really surprised us! The streets just off Lion's Square are full of bars, tavernas and cafeterias all spilling out on the streets until late. The coastal area of the city is also really lively with modern nightclubs kicking off around midnight.

    We traveled to Crete early September and is was scorching! The days hit over 30 degrees and if anything it was a little hot for sightseeing. Following our 2 night stint in the city we headed over to Hersonisos to relax by the pool in an all inclusive hotel. This resort was a striking contrast to Heraklion and was very touristy - expect to see Mcdonalds, KFC etc etc.

    We really enjoyed Crete and would definitely recommend that visitors look at arranging a twin centre in order to enjoy the city with the beach. Also worth noting, that from Heraklion you can take a high speed ferry over to Santorini, The journey takes 2 hours and is well worth a look!

    • Where: Bangkok, Thailand
    • Who: sean
    • When: September

    Bangkok is the best city on the planet - fact!

    I have visited Bangkok around 10 times over the last 10 years and on every trip I fall just a little bit more in love with the place. I love the diversity of the city - one minute your seeing 3 wheeled tuk tuk's whizzing though the cities nightlife district, next your watching Buddhist monks pray in temples.

    My favorite area of Bangkok has to be around the Patong area. We normally stay in the Dusit Thani hotel which is centrally located to the markets, nightlife and temples. I would strongly recommend a visit to the Lebua Sky bar that was featured in the Hangover 2. The dizzying heights of the bar give you a real birds eye view of this fantastic city whilst sampling a cocktail or two.

    Shopping is also great in Bangkok. They have everything from small street stalls selling handicrafts and replica designer bags to huge shopping malls selling international brands. My favorite shopping experience is Chatuchak market which runs every Sunday and is the world's largest market! Chatuchak can be reached from central Bangkok by skytrain (an experience in itself). The market is huge and boasts over 15,000 stalls covering 35 acres! Make sure you wear sensible shoes!! Definitely give yourself a full day there and like anywhere that gets crowded, make sure you guard your bag, camera etc at all times.

    My other favourite thing about Bangkok is the food. Whilst there are lots of amazing restaurants in town I would always recommend trying the local street food. It is some of the best Thai food I have ever had and is always so cheap! A Phad Thai dish will probably set you back no more than £1! I can't wait to visit this amazing city again next year.

    • Where: Mykonos, Greece
    • Who: Traveladdict
    • When: September

    We stayed in the beautiful beach resort of Ornos, located around 15 minutes from Mykonos Town.
    Ornos was a fantastic resort - the beach was incredible with soft sand and really clear turquoise seas. Perfect for families.

    The beach facilities are great. At around sunset time the beach livens up a little with beach bars hosting DJ parties. Wine is generally free flowing and served in the traditional carafe. We spent numerous nights on the beach, listening to music and watching the sunset over the sea.

    During our trip we tended to spend the days in Ornos and our evenings in Mykonos Town itself. The town is very cosmopolitan and its easy to get lost in it's maze of cobbled streets. We were always discovering new bars and restaurants and every night the town was full of atmosphere. The town really gets into full swing just after midnight when the streets get busy!

    I would recommend a trip to Little Venice to enjoy dinner and drinks right by the waters edge. The area gets busy just before sunset so I would advise getting there early to ensure you get a seat in one of the waters edge bars.

    Right next to Little Venice you can't miss the Mykonos windmills, they are one of the most recognized landmarks on the island. There is a great bar called Zorbas next to the windmills - it is the perfect stopping point for a cocktail at sunset combined with enjoying Greek hospitality.

    • Where: Santorini, Greece
    • Who: kb081
    • When: September

    I had always wanted to visit the Greek island of Santorini as I had seen heaps of stereotypical images showing stunning sunsets over white washed villages. Santorini did not disappoint.

    We actually bolted a trip to the island on to a package trip we had booked to Crete. Surprisingly Santorini can be reached by ferry from Crete in under 2 hours. Flight prices to Santorini are generally quite expensive but by flying to Crete and then hopping over to Santorini we saved a lot of money plus got to spend a few hours topping our tans at sea!

    The island itself is visually stunning and lives up to the hype. We based ourselves in the village of Oia and stayed in a small house built within the cliff face. The views were to die for and we spent a lot of our evenings sitting on the rooftops, drinking Greek wine and watching the sun go down.

    Speaking of wine - one place not to miss, is the fantastic Santo Winery located just 10 minutes outside Santorini's capital of Fira in the village of Pyrgos. The winery boasts an amazing balcony where you can try locally produced (and cheap!) wine whilst watching the most spectacular sea views on the island.

    There's lots to do on Santorini - from cliff jumping, snorkeling, sunset cruises,to visiting the famous volcano. The island also offers some amazing fine dining restaurants - our favourite was Feredini offering home cooked Italian foods whilst overlooking the stunning ocean and cliffs.

    One word of warning - the villages of Oia and Fira are both built within the cliff face. You do need to be fit and able to do a bit of climbing to and from your hotel. It was perfect for us, as we were happy to burn off all the Moussaka we were eating(!), however I wouldn't really recommend this island to those with mobility problems. Santorini - I will be back!
