Weather in Alicante


I was wondering what is the weather like in Alicante city at the moment? I know it's been unseasonably hot in many parts of Europe.

I was thinking of going to Alicante mid October. What sort of temperature might I expect & would the water temperature be too cold for swimming in? Didn't get a summer here in Eire this year so would love to get away for some in Espagna.

I am planning on heading out there this weekend as some friends have a villa out there. They go quite regularly throughout the year and have been fortunate enough to have sun for the majority of each trip. Looking at the weather for my week out there it is forecast rain unfortunately but I am still hopeful!

I think the average temperature in October is around 20 degrees so I imagine you could swim. And I have heard that they only get around 20-25 days of rain per year. Hope this helps!

Alicante is partly cloudy today, temp 25 degrees C with a light breeze.

The weather in mid-October is usually pleasant, to compare to Ireland, then it would have been better than the Summer just past!!

There is a possibility of rain in Spain in October but not like we know it!!! (It does stop sometime!) I would suggest bringing a Jacket, Jumper and Rain-coat, just in case...

The temp drops as the year goes on but you can get a swim in almost every day, even Christmas Day. Its the cool on-shore breeze that makes it unpleasant but not impossible.

Just a tip too, I always pack fluffy slippers or SlipperSoks as the marble floor tiles can be very cold, but great in the heat of the Summer of course.

Just got back from Playa San Juan last Monday, 17 Sept, temperatures ranged between 27-31 daytime - so quite warm and perfect night time weather. Not sure how quickly it will change.

It had been very windy though, especially late afternoon for a couple of hours. Sea bit choppy because of this but very warm.
