    Relaxing destinations for September

    If we were to be asked what we expect from this September, we would not hesitate for one second to answer: beach, and lots of it. We want the beach, silence and the chance to relax. Because summer is still here so we need to take advantage of it. It is true that it is again time for routine, obligations and stress that comes from school chores and extra curriculum activities. However, it is also true that it is not altogether impossible to take a few days to escape to the beach again, to say farewell to our holidays the way we deserve to.

    For this, we have selected 2 destinations in Spain that are surrounded by this philosophy of relaxing by the sea: Majorca and Huelva, 2 different sides to the natural coast of the country: the Mediterranean Vs the Atlantic; the ideal places to disconnect and lose yourself in nature.

    Majorca in September

    The stunning Mediterranean island is now in off-peak season and thus starts to return to its normal calm state. The decline of tourists means welcoming those seeking nature, tranquility and calm beaches. Residents take back the zones that, until now, had been flooded by visitors, leaving behind a more relaxing vibe to the island. Mallorca’s true spirit can reign and offer more than just beaches, but food and mountain zones that will make you forget about the rush and strain of city life, and having to carry your food in tupperware containers.

    In this sense, the north of Majorca is the most recommendable zone for staying pre-autumn. Pollensa, Alcudia and Muro are a trio of aces, combining the mountains, beach and agricultural plains with charming villages full of history.

    Places to stay:

    The best places are the beach of Alcudia and the famous and beautiful Playa de Muro. Miles and miles of white fine sand and calm water with hardly any waves and, the zone with the largest amount of wetland in Majorca: S’Albufera.

    Places to discover: The hidden coves within the zone which reach towards the lighthouse of Formentor. The route by car is a unique experience; following the bends around the mountain range until your eyes catch a glimpse of the ocean from impossible heights.

    Places to visit: Alcudia town and Pollensa centre. These are gems of local traditions, with narrow passageways, small artisan shops, museums, ruins and restaurants with typical food that will win you over at first sight.

    Huelva in September

    The coast of Huelva and the Costa de La Luz hide many magical spots for disappearing for a weekend and forgetting about everything, even your mobile. Choosing between these is are hard decision as each of these destinations hide real treasures to discover. Punta Umbría, El Portil, las Marismas del Río Odiel, El Terrón…

    Out of all of these, the beach of La Flecha de El Rompido is our best bet. This is one of the few untouched beaches you can find in Spain as it has remained in perfect condition and maintains a unique form, consisting of a small shallow inlet of sea at the mouth of the Piedras river, which invites visitors to enjoy an incredible serene paradise. This area is ideal for a couples escape; far away from anything or anyone. Read in the sun, take a nap or spend the afternoon gazing at the sea- whatever you want.

    Places to stay:

    Try to stay as close to the beach as possible. Near to La Flecha there are many good hotels with great services for couples. This way, your stay does not have to be difficult and you can just enjoy the beach at your own leisure.

    Places to discover: the Las Marismas del Río Piedras marshes and their impressive colours as the day progresses. This play of lights and nature; water and fauna, come together to form the perfect setting to relax in. If you like photography, this place will win you over: you can take photos that will take anyone’s breath away.

    Places to visit: The village of Cartaya. You will love the lively atmosphere with streets full of local businesses and terraces. You will also love visiting the parks to enjoy the shade and learn about the historical monuments that date back before the Roman Empire.
