Weather in the Algarve

The weather in the Algarve is warm year-round, enjoying approximately 300 days of sunshine, with fairly steady temperatures. On hot summer days in July and August, the Atlantic offers a refreshing cool down. On most days of the year, the windward Western Algarve provides a nice breeze. Evenings are usually cooler and comfortable with a sweater or light jacket. Winter evenings are a littler cooler, so bring a fleece and windbreaker or leather jacket. Year round, winds can pickup on a particular day, so choose the protected beach coves for windy days instead of the long wide beaches where sand will be blowing.

When to Go: Our favourite times to visit Lagos are in mid to low season, when the town is alive with a mix of Portuguese and tourists looking for a tranquil experience. It is at these times that you can truly experience the Portuguese culture, when a shopkeeper or server can take the time to have a lively conversation with you. The warmth of the Portuguese and the Lagos natives in particular will make this a return holiday for you as it has for so many visitors over the years.
