It’s monsoon season in the Philippines from June to September but come October the weather starts to improve. Boracay is probably the most popular beach destination in this island-nation but it can get crowded during summer. Locals will tell you though that the best time to go is from October to February when the beach is less crowded, when rates are at its lowest and when the water is at its finest. You may still experience some occasional showers in this beautiful island when you go there in October but they will not be enough to ruin your vacation.

The Canary Islands is actually closer to North Africa than it is to Spain and this why it enjoys good weather all year long. The temperature there rarely dips to below 18C and when you go there in October you can enjoy the sun without feeling too much of the heat. If you’ve been to any beach destination in the Atlantic then you probably know already that the waters there can be quite cold even during summer. It’s the same in the Canary Islands so if you are looking for more warmth then head on to Lanzarote or Fuerteventura.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

The guide books and the travel blogs will tell you that the best months to go to Bora Bora are November and April. October though is still a good month to go when the number of tourists starts to dwindle and when hotels and resorts start lowering their rates. October is also relatively rain-free and mosquito-free in Bora Bora unlike the months from December to March. Bora Bora probably has the clearest water in the world, it is fine all year-round but you can enjoy it more with less people in it in October.
