Weather in October

Hi, just wondering what the weather will be like in October half term, usually go to Canaries, but fancy a change, is it warm enough to sunbathe, as we just like to chill out and relax by the pool, thanks

Hi there

If you want beach and pool time then I would suggest that you look at the Canaries again, although the weather can be wonderful and warm, and it has been the last couple of years, there is always a possibility that you will get some rain and cloudy days - at the end of the seasons its always a bit of a gamble with the weather

As Oct half term is at end of Oct I would go with Canaries to hit and miss in Crete at that time of year we tried it 2 years back and was very cold at night and we got quiet a bit of rain also a lot of places will be closing down You should try it sometime from May to Sept to get the best from it

Good luck

You could always try Cyprus if you prefer the Greek way,although not guarenteed with regards the weather theres a very decent chance you'll get your fair share of the sun.Apparently theres some good deals around as well i hear.

The end of October is not a good time for a first visit to Crete. The weather could be wonderful, but it's very unlikely to be sunbathing weather all the time (the pool will be cold by then even if the sea isn't). If you're unlucky and it's cool and wet a lot of the time it would be very dispiriting to be sitting around in an almost-closed-down resort. It might put you off ever coming again, which would be a pity.

If a sunbathing holiday is what you want, I agree that you should stick with the Canaries. Come to Crete another time - as someone else has said, between May and September/
