How warm is it in the Algarve during October?

The temperature reaches around 24℃ during the daytime in October, falling away to 14℃ at night. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.

Does it rain in the Algarve during October?

On average, there will be 9 rainy days during the month, amounting to 34.4mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.

How warm is the sea in the Algarve during October?

The water around the Algarve is around 20℃ during October. It will feel a little on the cool when first entering, but you'll warm up quickly. Most kids will have no problem with this temperature, but those who feel the cold are unlikely to want to swim.
