Guide of the best sunny destinations in October

The sun makes everything better, and we are going to prove it to you with our selection of destinations where the sun shines bright in Autumn. 21°C water, divine beaches... Everything you need to chase the clouds away from your mind and from the sky!

In Africa

When summer is only a distant memory, North Africa takes the role over successfully. It is the ideal time to discover the oases of Tunisia and Morocco with their mild temperatures. And the golden sand of Djerba and Essaouira are the icing on the Gazelle horn ( traditional pastry). But perhaps setting off to the islands of eternal spring, aka the Canary Islands, where summer plays overtime, sound better to you. Finally, Madeira, with its lush gardens, subtropical climate and secret coves will add a pinch of sparkle to your sunny October holidays.

In the Middle-East

In order to fully immerse yourself in the ancient Eastern and Mediterranean culture, you need to go to Turkey. The summer crowds have left the beaches of the Aegean Sea and there is finally some room to enjoy a glass of Raki on a terrace. The tenth month of the year is also a good time to discover the Holy Land of Israel or an adventure worthy of Lawrence of Arabia in Jordan. After a full-size history and archaeology lesson, the seaside resorts of Tel Aviv, Aqaba or Eilat keep your pretty tanned complexion going long after summer is over. Not far from there, the Egyptian Gods of the sun watches over the temples, the pyramids and the shores of the Red Sea, which are at the perfect temperature for you to enjoy its multicoloured underwater fauna. So why not go to Oman?

The islands of the Indian Ocean

A paradise in the dreamy water of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a destination full of sunny promises in October. Be it exploring, swimming and meeting friendly Mauritians: from sunrise to sunset, everything happens on the beach and will take you far, far away from the gloom of Autumn. Want to go a little higher? Head for the Reunion Island with its volcanoes, creeks and lush vegetation. Unless you prefer discovering the unique and surprising geological formations of Madagascar? Between jungles, savannah and fine sand, the Red Island will amaze you like no other. In the Seychelles, lagoons, beaches and relaxation: pure happiness. It is the end of the dry season in Zanzibar... You will be fascinated by its 1001 spice fragrances. !

On the American continent

At this time of year, California still enjoys near-summer temperatures. The perfect time to play the Hollywood star on Venice beach and enjoy the San Diego weather. The second largest city in the Golden State has over 300 days of sunshine per year. Further on, in Hawaii, this American state takes the form of an island. Between giant volcanoes, lush forests and lunar landscapes, its dream beaches will stun you. In the Southern Hemisphere, the austral summer is arriving, ready to warm up the weather of Argentina and Chile. However the beaches of Salvador de Bahia and of the Nordeste haven't had to wait for the sun because they already have it. Swimsuits, sunglasses and summer clothes are the dress code in Jericoacoara and Fernando de Noronha.

In Asia

In Bali, it is still the dry season... But you only have a few days left to enjoy the privileged microclimate of the centre of the Indonesian archipelago. You can relax on the beaches of Jimbaran and Amed, enjoy marinated fish in coconut milk and stroll around between plantations, tropical jungles and rice fields. The Island of Gods both soothes and amazes, enough to face Autumn with stars in your eyes. Don't resist the call of the Sunda Islands which are combined with the soothing Bali island. Imposing volcanoes, authentic villages, white sand beaches and the Komodo dragons will be the highlights of your trip.

In Southern Europe

Around the Mediterranean, the sun has said its last word, it still shines on the Alhambra of Granada and the temples of Greece. Of course, the water temperature is already a bit cool. But the beaches of the Balearic Islands and of Corsica return to their true beauty once free of the summer crowds. Andalusia and the the Algarve also hold on to summer with mild temperatures and optimal sunshine. Concerning Cyprus, Sardinia and the Greek islands, you need to hurry... The first rainfalls of autumn are getting closer and closer.

In Oceania

To finally forget about the gloomy weather at home, another solution is to take refuge at the Antipodes of the planet. Located in the heart of the Coral Sea, New Caledonia perfectly matches the description of paradise on Earth. With your swimsuit, mask and snorkel, you will venture on beaches that even a castaway would never want to leave. Further away in Oceania, the French Polynesia reveals breathtaking landscapes of atolls and lagoons. You day will begin with a dip in the 27°C sea of course, then you can go on a sailboat cruise or go for a dive in the fantastically preserved coral reefs. You will need to find good reasons not to postpone your flight back home for a few days, or more...

Destinations you should avoid in October

Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Cambodia are not spared by the late monsoons that water Southern Asia. India is not the best bet either, nor is the Caribbean where there a high cyclone risk, and of course everywhere else in the Northern Hemisphere it's cold.
