We're on a Spain & Portugal tour in October. One of the stops is Torremolinos, which might allow for a nice beach day, but will it be warm enough for bathing suits on Oct. 20? Just trying to reduce unnecessary baggage!

Weather is changeable.  I was there in 2000 in January, and it wasn't warm enough to swim although people were sunbathing.  A friend was there exactly a year before, and they swam every day.  How much room do bathing suits take up?  I always used to tuck one into a corner.

I can almost (ALMOST) guarantee that the water will be warm enough for swimming in October in Torremolinos. We did not swim but we waded in the Mediterranean in January 2009. The water was cool but not chilling.
