What’s the weather like in the Algarve?

With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, little rain and temperatures rarely dropping below 16°C, the Algarve has an enviable climate, characterised by its mild winters and long, hot summers. The region offers ideal weather for year-round outdoor activities including golf, hiking, cycling and many more experiences; and with the influence of both the Atlantic and Mediterranean seas, it boasts the perfect conditions for surfing too.

Algarve weather in the Summer

June to September are the hottest months of the year in the Algarve, and you will enjoy a good 12 hours of sunshine per day. Daytime temperatures can top 30°C, but will feel comfortable on the beach as the coastal breezes tend to cool things down a bit. Night-time temperatures rarely drop below 20°C, perfect for outdoor eating.

The weather is perfect for our Surf Packages, which let you spend the day catching waves and the nights catching up on sleep in one of our luxury suites.
