The Algarve has a wonderful climate with over 3000 hours of sunshine per year making it an excellent year round holiday destination. The summers are hot and dry. Temperatures average around 29º, but can rise into the 30ºs, with up to 12 hours of sunshine per day - ideal for beach holidays. There is usually a cooling sea breeze which keeps the atmosphere light. Spring and autumn are mild. Temperatures average 17 – 20º and there is plenty of sunshine – perfect for golf and other sports. Winters tend to be mild averaging around 15º and this is the season with the most rainfall. The Algarve gets on average 50 days of rainfall all year, most of them between November and February.

So, what should you pack?

If you are visiting the Algarve in the summer, pack a swimsuit and sunscreen and you’re good to go! The evenings are usually warm, but if the sea breeze gets up you may need a jacket. For the spring and autumn, shorts and t shirts will do, but again, in the evening it can become quite cool. Winters are mild but the sea air can make you feel cold so fleece and rain jackets are a good idea.

 

Watch Garret McNamara ride a monster wave off the coast of Portugal. An official Guinness World Record, the wave was calculated to be 78 feet tall!
