Weather warm enough in mid/late October in Santorini?

I'm looking to take my wife to Santorini in the 3rd week in October, but want to make sure the weather will be warm enough. The average temperature says highs typically reach the low 70's F, but is the island more enjoyable with a little warmer weather (for beaches, laying poolside, etc)? Or is that temperature much more amenable for doing other activities on the island? Thanks in advance for your help!

By the 3rd week of October you will definitely experience some wind, clouds and a chill in the air, sometimes even during the day. If it's windy the water will feel colder than it is. The pools are heated by the sun so by then they will be cooling off. That's not to say it won't be warm, but you won't know until you're there.

Last year the third week in October was great! We had 26 degrees C in the day and around 19 in the evenings. The year before it was 17 some days but 22 some. This is when we stop working for the season and we really can enjoy the sun and sea! Of course, on ecan never be sure how this October will be...

I've experienced both warm and cool weather in October. You can't be sure. But it's nice to have some clouds in the caldera photos - the pure blue sky of summer is a little boring in a seascape shot. www.flickr.com/photos/johnthefinn/8110129533/
