The weather in April

You'd think the Algarve in April is similar to March, but it can actually be lots warmer. The average temperature is about 18 degrees but during daytime it can easily reach the mid-twenties or even 25+ degrees. Evenings and mornings are chilly but midday and the afternoon can be beach weather so make sure to pack for different temperatures. Bring a jumper and a light jacket but also beachwear!

Another great thing about April is that it's really green this time of year. Nature in this month is just absolutely beautiful! You can really feel and smell spring in the air.


Things to do in the Algarve in April

If you're a surfer, April is also a good time to travel as the weather is nice and there are usually pretty good waves. Also, you won't find too many people in April. No big crowds or package holiday travellers. All together this makes April one of my favorite months to travel to the Algarve.

If you love swimming you should know the ocean is definitely chilly and swimming is let's say.. very refreshing! The average water temperature this time of year is 17.3 degrees. 😉 But definitely bring a bikini for chilling on the beach.

Love being active and outdoor activities? In this case April in the Algarve is perfect!

With milder temperatures at daytime between 18 - 25 degrees, it's perfect for activities like hiking and climbing, even in the middle of the day. It's also not too cold for waters ports like supping, kayaking or surfing. There are so much fun things to do in the Algarve!
