Costa Del Sol
What’s the weather like on Costa del Sol in October?
Located in the south of Spain on the country’s Mediterranean coast, you can count on lots of sun if you’re going to the Costa del Sol in October. With a range of great resorts to choose from, the month’s ideal if you prefer to avoid the higher temperatures and larger crowds of summer.
The Costa del Sol has quite typical Mediterranean weather with the long and hot summer going on into October. It does have four fairly distinct seasons though. Autumn’s a popular time to visit, even though there’s more rain as it goes on. The Sahara Desert can sometimes send over warm winds, which makes things really hot. You’ll like this if you love the heat though.
The average high in the Costa del Sol’s popular Marbella’s 22ºC in October, which cools to 12ºC at night time. You should pack some warmer clothes for the evenings as it does get a bit chilly. The sea temperature’s 21ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 55mm of rain over four days. You can expect 11 hours of daylight each day with seven hours of sunshine at a moderate UV level. Sunset’s quite nice and late after 8pm at the start of October, but the end of daylight saving means this is around 6.30pm by the end of the month.
Things to Do
Golf’s huge in the area, and the beautiful courses and pleasant weather’s great for a few rounds with your friends. Sample Marbella’s nightlife. Take the kids to Tivoli World. Ride a cable car up Monte Calamorro for great views back down over Benalmadena. Go hiking in the El Torcal nature reserve. There’s lots to keep the whole family entertained.
