What’s the weather like in Spain in October?
Sitting in Southeast Europe, Spain’s on the Iberian Peninsula and has different weather around the country. You’ll get good holiday weather in general as autumn sets in during October, and there’s plenty of places to go to for late summer sun.
Spain’s a big country with lots of coastline and mountain ranges. The Mediterranean coast has some of its most famous holiday destinations, such as Benidorm and Marbella, and you’ll be kept cool here by the sea and breezes. If you’re after an island escape then the Balearics and Canaries have a great range of options that look after all kinds of tastes and budgets. Expect lots of sun in October.

There’s 47mm of rain over nine days. You can look forward to seven hours of sunshine from the 11 hours of daylight each day. UV levels will be moderate.

Things to Do
The weather’s warm enough to relax by the pool or on the beach if you’re heading to the coast or an island. If you’re going to the Canaries don’t miss the diving, or if you’re in Benidorm the Aqualandia waterpark’s lots of fun. Wherever you are make sure you try lots of the tasty local food, while favourite tipples include sangria, cava and wine from the Rioja region.
