The Algarve in October

As fall sets in, the allure of extending summer draws us southward, and there's no better place to enjoy nature, warmth, and beauty than the Algarve. This beautiful region offers warm beaches, radiant sunshine, and great surf, all with the added advantage of fewer crowds. So, let's dive into what makes October a perfect time to experience the Algarve!

1. Weather in fall in the Algarve

October and even November are surprisingly nice in the Algarve. The temperatures are around 22 degrees on average, but trust me, it feels way toastier during the day. Forget about those rainy days back home and get ready to enjoy one of Europe's sunniest destinations.

One of my favorite things about the Algarve in October, and especially November, are the blossoming bougainvillea and moon rises. The sky and flowers are absolutely my favorite this time of year.

Even though the average temperature in the Algarve doesn't seem too high, always remember it's usually much warmer during day time. If you find a nice sheltered beach, October and November (and if many times also December) are still great for beach time!
