Weather in Lanzarote in October

Chasing year-round sun? 🌞 Say 'hola' to the Canary Islands! Lanzarote, with a cosy 23°C to its name, offers not only classic golden beaches like Costa Teguise, but unique black sandy stretches like El Golfo. (Heads up: the sand gets HOT here, so keep your fave pair of flip-flops handy unless you want to be caught doing that weird hoppy dance.) And if flopping down a towel for the day is a bit too plain and simple for you, head to the rocky landscapes for a volcanic BBQ or bumpy camel ride, or swirl some local vino at a wine-tasting gig. The options are pretty endless - from shopping 'til you drop in Arrecife to keeping it chill in Playa Blanca, so whatever's on your holiday checklist, Lanzarote's got you covered.

Weather in Cyprus in October

If Greece and Turkey had a baby, it'd be Cyprus. And what a combo it is. You've got the delish Greek food influences (AKA, all the halloumi), gorg Turkey-style beaches to sprawl out on and a healthy dash of history to impress your folks. With 22°C as its October average, it's the perfect weather for a bit of sun, sand and sea action. But come nighttime? Ayia Napa's party scene is calling 👀 Get you a destination that does both 🌞

Weather in Turkey in October

As the summer crowds thin out, Turkey turns up the charm with sunkissed beaches and unbeatable deals. With a comfy 20°C average, beach days are still very much on the agenda (shout-out to Belek Beach in Antalya for pure sand vibes!). Dive into tasty traditional kebabs (not the greasy, post-night-out kind), and sweeten things up with baklava and a coffee sidekick. For a bright October escape, Turkey's the name, and beach bumming's the game! 🏖️

Is October a good time to go on holiday?

Temperatures do cool down a smidge in October compared to those sizzling summer highs, but hey - not all of us are in the mood for a week-long sweat sesh. If that's you, then now's a great time to escape for some autumn sun without too much heat. It also means you can avoid forking out for those peak summer prices, but you've still got the October half-term if you're looking to jet off with the kiddos.

Where's hot in October?

There are lots of places where it's still hot in October, even if the UK definitely isn't one of 'em. For heat that packs a punch, you've got long-haul destinations like Dubai and the Caribbean, but some more popular hotspots like Turkey, Ibiza and the Canaries are known to still stay pretty toasty around this time of year too. You might just need a light jacket for the evening, but we promise it's not a big coat sitch.

Where's the cheapest place to go on holiday in October?

Turkey is one of the cheapest places to jet off to in October, thanks to its bangin' deals, top-notch value and HUGE range of hotels - from luxury adults-only ones to fun-packed family ones. Antalya in particular is the real MVP when it comes to snagging a serious bargain, so don;t hang about 🏖️
