1. The weather in June

June is when the summer heat kicks in across the Algarve. You really start to feel summer is close. The middle of the day can already feel pretty hot with an average maximum of 28 degrees. Perfect for warm salty beach days with balmy evenings on the terrace.

The sea can still be quite chilly but can reach up to 19 degrees soo a refreshing swim is always nearby!

All together, the weather and temperatures in June are really comfortable and warm. Perfect for a beach holiday and some serious pool side chilling.

Where you stay in the Algarve depends on what you want from your trip. For a beach holiday with plenty of relaxation by the sea or pool, consider the central or eastern parts. You'll find picturesque beach towns like Carvoeiro with white sandy coves and charming white-washed houses. More west, you find quaint, less-touristy towns like Burgau and Salema to slightly more bustling towns like Lagos, Praia da Luz, there's something for everyone.
