The beaches of Spain and the Balearics may be chilly in October but you will be pleased to learn, there’s still a few hot spots you can head to if you want some last minute sun.
Canary Islands: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote are some of the islands that make up the Canaries, and with their sub-tropical climate, they benefit from year round sunshine with average temperatures of 24°C during October. The Canaries are home to over 930 miles of sun soaked beaches and there are plenty of deals to be had with October falling outside peak season.
Cyprus: The Mediterranean starts to cool down straight after the summer months but Cyprus is the exception and enjoys an extended period of warm weather from April - November. A flight to Cyprus is only four and a half hours and if you’re looking for traditional charm and laid back living, get booking!
Tunisia: Situated in North Africa, Tunisia is a just a stone’s throw away from the UK with the average flight being just three hours. Temperatures are around 21°C during October, so ideal for sun seekers and for those of you that like to haggle, there’s many a bargain to be had in the markets where you can find an array of handicrafts, leather, clothing, ceramics and much more.
