In early late September to early October, the Monterey Peninsula enjoys pleasant weather with daytime temperatures ranging from the mid-60s to low 70s°F and cooler evenings in the 50s°F.
Light layers are recommended, including short-sleeve shirts, long-sleeve tops, and a light sweater or jacket for cooler moments. Comfortable walking shoes, sunglasses, and sunscreen are essential, while rain gear may be handy for occasional light showers. Be prepared for coastal breezes, which can lead to temperature fluctuations during the day.
We also recommend waterproof hiking shoes and a camera. There is more to see than you can possibly paint.
