BEST PLACES TO TRAVEL IN OCTOBER 2021
Autumn is well and truly here by October. You probably know a few people who start getting all their Halloween decorations out by the 1st, fill themselves up with pumpkin spice lattes and get all their favourite scarves & hats out, because it’s starting to get just that little bit colder so why not head abroad! Depends where you like to spend your spooky season but for us, it's on a beach. Picture this, It's a hot day you're on the beach with a beer in hand, yep it's glorious. So here are the best places to travel in October to chase those warm sunny days!
Did you know that Europe's still warm in October? It is the tail end of summer of course, so one of the best places to visit has to be Croatia. Plus this time of year there's far less tourists which means you can visit all those hotspots without the crowds. From exploring beautiful Dubrovnik to partying under the stars in Hvar, Croatia is 10/10 bucket list vibes. With temperatures averaging around 18-20 degrees most days it's the perfect temp for all those adventurous, exciting travels around one Europe's most beautiful countries! Swim in stunning Krka National park, marvel at insta hotspot of Plitvice Lakes or maybe just head to famous Zrca Beach (home to world-renowned Hide Out Festival). Whatever you want to see, is the perfect balance of hotspots and hidden gems.
GREECE IN OCTOBER?! HELL YEAH!
I know what you’re thinking.. Greece in October? But trust us, the weather is still 10/10 (aka hot) in Greece during October and there are fewer crowds! It's a win-win. Spend your days island hopping crystal clear blue waters, explore hidden gems and instagrammable hotspots. Greece is the place to be. Snorkel the afternoon away at Syovta's Blue Lagoon, wander the colourful streets of Parga town, and go off the beaten path when on the island of Paxos. Sip cocktails by the beach, enjoying the famous nightlife of Kavos.. yeah, it's got to be done, you're in Greece after all! Or hit up the nightlife on the island of Ios.. take your pick! Enjoy the notorious Santorini sunsets, views of the windmills in Mykonos and the culture & heritage of ancient Athens. Hey, October means spooky season sooo, why not TREAT yourself to the trip of a lifetime in Greece? Sounds like a good plan to us.
Bali, a traveller’s dream, a must-see destination and just all-round pure BLISS. So it’s only right that Bali makes the best places to travel line up for October. Bali's weather during October is wonderful, with little chance of rain, low humidity, and LOTS of sunshine. It’ll feel like the height of the summer. Trust. Don’t forget your sunnies! We recommend a funky pair. Wondering what there is to do in paradise? Where to even begin! Snorkel to your heart’s content in the Gili islands; you might even meet a turtle or two, wander through the sacred monkey forest (you’ll definitely make some friends here), visit the picture-perfect rice terraces in Ubud and watch unreal sunrises & sunsets, you can even watch the sunrise from the top of a volcano! Sick, right? Give surfing a go in Kuta (surf’s up beaches), promise we won’t laugh if you fall, take part in a traditional Balinese cooking class and visit amazing temples while learning all about Balinese culture. The list is endless! Just know the sea is crystal clear, the white sand beaches are serene, and the views are out of this world (the beer’s pretty good too, big up Bintang!). Bali is a big, fat, 10/10. Need I say more?
COSTA RICA'S PURA VIDA
Did you know Costa Rica means rich coast? And that it’s home to the world’s most diverse ecosystem. No wonder it’s any nature and wildlife lover’s paradise! Not to mention all the adventures to be had while visiting the rich coast aka Costa Rica too. The weather in October is hot, with an average daily temperature of 27°C and is one of the hottest and driest months on the Caribbean coast. Wake up to emerald green rainforests, visit the volcanic hot spring in La Fortuna (ultimate relaxation station), join a night safari and see what unique wildlife you can spot. Chase some waterfalls (sorry TLC) and dive into stunning blue swimming holes, visit the Arenal volcano and zipline through the rainforest with your head in the clouds. Try surfing some waves at Santa Teresa beach or sip a cocktail and bask in the sunshine, there’s something for everyone. You deserve that Pura Vida. So see you on the beach? We’re the ones with the Pina Coladas’.
