Would anyone know if it is likely to be hot enough for sea swimming & lounging by the pool/ beach??
If not any other recommendations for somewhere that will be hot enough, preferably dry heat (health problems), but with lots to see & do ?? Preferably not overly British touristy places like Tenerife & the likes & preferably needs access to good healthcare, just incase as our daughter & myself are higher risk.
Traveling with 2 adults & a 15 y/o & we like to mix getting out & experiencing local culture & sights, with relaxing on a beach or similar, good diving would be a bonus for DH
I'd be surprised. Reckon you'd be better off looking at a Greek island or Cyprus that late. Or Dubai/ emirates maybe. I've been to Sicily several times at various times of the year including first week of July this year which was a peachy 29-32. The other thing to consider is stuff shuts down a bit out of season even if weather unusually warm.
It could be warm enough, but no guarantees. In Oct I would travel to either Cyprus or Canaries (there are lovely bits of the Canaries - they're not all tacky and full of Brits on the lash), for sea swimming.
I'd say it would be. We've been to Gozo the last 2 Octobers, which is only 80 miles across the Med from Scicily - to dive btw, Gozo and Malta both excellent for diving and plenty of other things to do, depending on what you want.
Anyway, sea was warm, weather was hot, glorious.
