A trip to Montenegro in October is still characterized by good weather. That is why you are most likely to sunbathe and even swim in the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea.
If you still find it a bit cool for beach activities, you can spend your time exploring numerous sights of this country, by renting a car or joining an organized tour.
Montenegrin climate in October
The climate in the country is mainly Mediterranean, which means that summer is usually dry and hot, and winter is relatively mild and snowless.
While in Western Europe the temperature drops rapidly and drizzling rains are frequent, in Montenegro the weather is still warm in September and October.
At the end of September, for example, in the coastal cities of Budva and Bar, the average day temperature is + 26-27°C, and only at night it drops down to +15°C. It is approximately the same for the weather in Kotor.
Despite the coming autumn, in Montenegro the early October is quite comfortable for swimming, because the water temperature in the Adriatic Sea is still +21°C.
Although in this season you may need an umbrella or a raincoat, because it may rain, you would better take warm clothes, too, because the increases in this region.
In October, the season finishes in Montenegro, i.e. the water begins to cool gradually, but it all depends on the year, and it may differ. There may still be clear and sunny, and you can get a tan or comfortably go on a hike, or you may happen to prefer bus trips or rented cars.
In Montenegro, the end of October is warmer in coastal areas rather than in mountainous ones. The weather is suitable primarily for excursions, and it is better to study urban architecture and walk through narrow streets rather than to travel to mountainous areas, because at this time it may be rainy there.
