The best time to travel to the Algarve, Portugal

April.

It's so green around this time of year, it's beautiful. The weather is a little more unstable but is usually warm enough for wearing a t-shirt, chilling by the pool and outdoor activities. The ocean is definitely cold in this month. Surfing with a thicker wetsuit is needed and swimming in the ocean is let's say.. very refreshing! 😉

May.

The landscape remains green and the weather is at its best. Not too hot, but definitely beach weather! Still not too many tourist around but a nice balance of people wandering in the old towns, visiting bars and restaurants and having some coziness around!

  • Average temperature: 22 degrees (usually feels lots warmer)

September.

High season has ended and the weather is still amazing. Less super intens hot temperatures but still nice and warm. Definitely beach weather and the water temperature is at its best. 😉 The flowering bougainvillea is absolutely gorgeous at this time of year.

October:

I love escaping cold North-Western European weather! As soon as the dark fall days start coming up, I'm out of there! October is a lovely month to travel. Especially because of the contrast with home. The clear starry nights and beautiful moonrises are my favorite in October.
