The Algarve in October

Updated: Feb 20

So fall just started and if you're from a colder European country like me, October is the perfect time to extend summer and head down south. What is the Algarve like in October? Well, let me tell you!


Weather in fall in the Algarve

The weather in October, and even November, is usually really great and it can even still be pretty hot. The average temperature in October is 22 degrees but feels much warmer during the day. Perfect to escape the cold windy wet weather and soak up some Portuguese sun. The Algarve is one of the sunniest places in Europe but chances of a storm or some rain are higher in fall. However, overall it is still a great time to travel to the Algarve.


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

Fall temperatures by month

Even though the average temperature doesn't seem to 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!
