Weather

The climate of the Algarve seems almost subtropical. In average there is no rain 7 months of the year and it almost never rains in the summer. The number of hours with sun is over 3.000 per year! Winters are mild and summers are not too hot due to the sea breeze. The best months for a holiday at the beach are June, July, August and September. For an active holiday the months April, May and October are more suitable. In the winter and early spring the weather can be very nice, especially if the sun is shining. However the chance of rain is in that period bigger.
