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. 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.

If you're a surfer, April is also a good time to travel as the weather is nice and there are usually good waves. Another plus about the Algarve this time of year is that there are not too many people around. 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 still cold and swimming is let's say.. very refreshing! 😉 But definitely bring a bikini for chilling on the beach.
