Mid September there will be a huge Pacific ocean swell with morning high tides.   That would NOT be the time to schedule a week at the beach for a vacation.   Dates: 12th - 18th.

In that school is out, many families go to the beach for vacation.  That would be a dangerous time for them to be there in the ocean playing.
