What's the weather like in Fuengirola in October
October can be a chilly month for much of Europe, and if this is the case in your part of the world, consider taking a trip to Fuengirola. The average temperature this month is 18°C (64°F), with the average low being 14°C (57°F), and the average high coming in at 22°C (72°F).
It is possible to catch some summer-like weather at the beginning of October, as there is still lots of sun, a nominal amount of rain, and a daily average temperature of 20°C (°F). Temperatures start to drop towards the middle of the month to a daily average of 18°C (°F), and the chance of rain is at its highest for the month, although still rather unlikely. The end of October sees temperatures continue to just barely drop to 17°C (°F), as does the chance of rain.
Average Sunshine Hours
Although "fall" is starting to set in, there are still nine hours of daily sunshine on average in October. This will give you plenty of time to hit the beach on days that are warmer. The threat of rain increases this month from September, but is still not a significant total.
On average, the total rainfall in October is 55mm (2.2 inches), happening over just nine days throughout the month. While the chance of rain is slim, storms do have the potential of lasting longer than in the summer months, so it is worth having some indoor activities planned just in case.
Average Sea Temperature
Swimming and water sports are still popular in October, as the average sea temperature is 21°C (70°F), which is warmer than it is in June. While the water is relatively warm, it can be too cool for more than just a quick dip for some.
The humidity levels steadily increase as the year goes on, with the average levels in October hovering just over 70%. This is not an uncomfortable level, especially with cooler temperatures, but the potential for an annoying day with high temperature and high humidity does present itself during this month.

Fuengirola Beach for October
El Ejido/El Castillo beach is worth going to anytime of the year. While it is one of the furthest beaches from the city centre, its idyllic location makes up for the time it takes to get there. Since it is further away, there aren't any buildings on the sea front, ruining the view and taking away from the peaceful ambience.
Its location also makes this beach pleasantly quiet and not as busy as the ones closer to the city centre. For a drink or some food, the four-star Beatriz Palace Spa Hotel offers a wonderful beach bar, which is located on its more than 300 meters of beach access. The beach is a five minute drive from the city centre and offers plenty of parking spaces.
Bars and Restaurants
When Restaurante la Solera opened, it was their goal to create dishes that remind you of home. They offer a large variety of meats from Iberian pork and lamb chops, to veal and ostrich tenderloin but also serve fresh seafood as well, all in a Mediterranean style. They also make homemade desserts and have a massive wine list, allowing you to pair the perfect beverage with your meal. They are located close to the city centre, just about a five minute walk away.
If you are in search of a British-feeling pub that serves food, head to Easy Days. Serving affordable drinks (some local beers are just 1), and a small but tasty menu, this place has become a favorite among both locals and tourists alike. Easy Days is the perfect place for a relaxed drink and top-notch, friendly service. They are located near Fuengirola's port, which is about a 12 minute walk to the city centre.
