Where to go on holiday in October

Molly Thompson

October is spooky season but don’t be afraid, travel is easy and super enjoyable during this month. As temperatures cool down let us show you the most calming and beautiful destinations October has to offer.

See our where to go, when guide for destination recommendations throughout the year.



The Balearics are a beautiful place to visit during October, Mallorca in particular promises plenty to see and explore. October is a month that is traditionally used to celebrate harvests in Mallorca and so there are several festivals and food tastings on offer. There are more than 70 local wineries that offer tours and food festivals such as the Feria de la Sobrasada and Fira Dolca.

Belmond La Residencia

Belmond La Residencia is one of our most popular properties on Mallorca enjoying the highest level of repeat guests. Award-winning Belmond La Residencia is unique in terms of culture, architecture and location.

Iberostar Grand Portals Nous

A luxury five star retreat, designed by renowned Marcel Wanders, offers an avant-garde design, landscaped grounds and fine gastronomic experiences. The hotel enjoys beautiful views over the cove in Portals Nous and is located only a 20 minute walk from the bustling port.

Pure Salt Port Adriano

Pure Salt Port Adriano is a very bright and colourful property boasting fantastic sea views.

Crete Enjoying one of the longest summers in the Mediterranean, is Crete. If you want to enjoy the last of the glorious Greek sunshine without the hustle and bustle of the busier summer months, then October is a great time to visit. For sea swimming it’s recommended to go earlier in the month as the temperatures start to drop.

St Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel

Two kilometres from Agios Nikolaos and set amidst beautiful flower-filled gardens, overlooking Mirabello Bay.

Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas

Superb dining and fine wines are high on the list of priorities at the Elounda Beach Hotel.

Domes of Elounda

In an idyllic setting with a private sandy beach and enjoying wonderful views of the UNESCO protected Island of Spinalonga and the Gulf of Elounda, award-winning Domes of Elounda offers comfort, luxury and exceptional service, and is ideal for both couples families.

Kenya An amazing location to visit during October is Kenya, especially if you’re thinking about going on a safari to view the wildlife. There are fewer mosquitoes and it’s much more likely you’ll get to see wildebeest migration during July- October than later in the year. Temperature wise, the first few weeks of October are dry and warm with pleasant temperatures that would make holidaying idyllic.
