October in Greece


My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon for the 2nd week of October 2013. Where are the best places to go at that time of year? We are looking for relaxation, great food, and lots of sun. Thanks!

Although September is in my opinion the best month to spend vacation on the islands, in October smaller places "close up" within the first 2 weeks.

You should therefore, consider going south, to places like Rhodos, Crete or Santorini, where it is warmer also. And the Cretans are so, oh, hospitable!

Happy planning!

Hi there

Yes agree with morocco I would head as far south as I could - and I would look at staying somewhere that has a year round population, not just a tourist resort which as morocco says will be starting to close up for the winter.

You could consider the mainland ,the Peloponnese , certainly warm in October, the sea fine for swimming. It has a large year round population , and clubs on the outskirts of the larger towns , such as Nafplio and Kalamata.

2nd week of October all the tavernas and shops in the villages on the south coast of Crete are still open, but not so crowded anymore, it is best time to go swimming, and in case there should be a little rain, you just have a break in a cafe and then go back to the beach.

Hi there

Crete or Rhodes would be two good options for mid October. Obviously the weather can never be guaranteed or predicted but in our experiences over the past 20 years or so, both offer the best chance of sunshine and good weather at that time of the year
