Weather Averages for Faro in October
Averages for Faro in October
October sees temperatures begin to cool in Faro as the summer season winds down. However, daytime temperatures still reach a high of 23°C (73°F) and only fall to 14°C (57°F) at night.
This is much warmer than most parts of northern Europe at this time of year, so head to Faro to soak up the last of the summer sun! It is also quieter during October so if you dislike the intense heat and busy crowds that the summer months bring, this is a great time of year to visit.
You will still be able to spend time at the beach as there are nine hours of sunshine each day, but October does tend to be much wetter than preceding months. You can expect around 10 days rain this month, so it would be best to bring a light jacket with you as well as beach wear!
The cooler temperatures mean this is an ideal time to explore the nature of the surrounding area, and a boat trip around the Ria Formosa Lagoon is a particular highlight.
Golf remains popular all year round, and there are numerous courses set in the beautiful hills around Faro.
The Ibis Hotel remains a popular favourite for budget accommodation and offers a double room in October for £264 for seven nights’ stay. The hotel is just 2km from the centre of Faro, so you can head out to eat at one of the many cafes and eateries in the area, or dine in the hotel restaurant. There is also an outdoor swimming pool with sun loungers.
For staying out of the city, the Aeromar is located right on the beach and provides stunning views of the ocean and the Ria Formosa Lagoon. You can get a double room here for £299 including breakfast and central Faro is a ten minute drive away for other shops, bars and restaurants.
