october 2013 advice please

hi, i was wondering if anyone could tell me what the weather is like around the 15th to 25th of october? will we still need summer clothes or shall we pack more trousers etc...

we are going as a family 2 adults and a 9 year old, would it still be warm enough for swimming in the pool and sea?

will there be a lot of places still open?

also its our first time visiting so was wondering what is there to do during the day/night trips etc

any advice would be gratefully appreciated!

thanks :)

i forgot to mention we have not actually booked yet as we cant decide between here and sillot majorca so we are wanting as much info on both so we can get booked asap.

is there anyone that has visited both that could maybe give us a rough indication of which would be best as a family to visit at this time of the year?

thanks again :)

Quarteira is a working city and therefore always busy enough. Everything will be open. October can still be very nice and warm and people are still at the beach.

Here's a link for average temperatures:


Sunset will be just before 6 pm and it will start to feel chilly after sunset.

The beach at Quarteira is very nice, wide and sandy. There is a traffic free promenade which gives the whole place a nice ambience. As FTHW has said, Quarteira is mainly a working town (it has a large and active fishing harbour) and is much less an out and out holiday resort than many other places in the Algarve.
