weather in october


Can anyone tell me what the weather is normally like in Southern Spain in October? We are looking for somewhere to go in the half term holiday - 21st October and were thinking of the Canaries but cannot get flights for when we want to go. Will it still be hot in Southern Spain? What about restaurants, attractions etc - do they close in October?

Firstly, restaurants, attractions are generally open all year round (except Christmas). However, Water Parks do close about end of August.

I've been there in October and weather was lovely, stil sunny and pleasantly warm. I suspect though some Octobers have rain. Having said that I've been in January and had no rain.

We always go for a fortnight at the end of October (22nd this year) and are generally lucky with the weather. In the last five or six years, we have only had one week where it has rained on more than a couple out of the fortnight. It is pretty much the same as a late May or early June day in the UK - daytime temperatures are generally low 70s but may reach mid 80s and it is still pleasant enough in the evenings to walk around without a coat, although a light fleece may be needed.

As other correspondents have said above, pretty much all of the restaurants etc are open as are most of the attractions. We have always managed to get a good deal of time on the beach and the sea and swimming pools are not too cold to swim.

Hire a car if you can as it will allow you to get out and about a lot more, particularly useful if we don't get the sun every day!

Have a great time if you do go.
