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 which is doable. The prefect temperatures for water sports. However, June is not the best time for surfing on the Algarve south coast. You'd have to travel to the western Algarve.
All together, the weather and temperatures in June are really comfortable and warm. Perfect for a beach holiday!
What to pack
The Algarvian sun in June is super strong so don't forget to bring 30-50+ sunscreen! With warm day temperatures make sure to pack light and airy clothing. I would also recommend bringing something warm for the evenings outside. And of course, bring beachwear and explore the beautiful Algarve beaches. So don't forget: 😉
Light and airy clothes
High protection sunscreen

Where to stay
So you're pretty sure you want to book an Algarve trip in June. Now the question remains: where to stay? Where you'd like stay in the Algarve all depends on what you want to get out of your trip.
The weather in June is hot which also makes a stay at the (colder) west coast comfortable and perfect for enjoying the sublime nature, beautiful waves and surfing. However, if you're not that into surfing, the west coast might not be for you as there is not much else (besides hiking) to do. Each area in the Algarve has their own qualities.
The Algarve south coast is filled with idilic beach towns with their typical white washed houses and cute little bays with fish restaurants. There are tiny less touristy places like Burgau and Salema (my personal favorites) and Larger towns with many facilities and lively town centers like Lagos and Carvoeiro. All are amazing! If you like some peace and quiet you'll also find plenty of unspoiled quiet and peaceful towns in this beautiful always sunny area. Want to stay on the beach?
