You’ll find the temperatures in the Algarve from April to May satisfyingly summery!
What to expect from the weather
Regularly reaching 23°C and falling to an average 14°C at night – the Algarve at this time of year offers ideal weather conditions if you’re feeling sporty or an urge for outdoor activity.
The sea temperature in April is normally 15/16 °C but warms rapidly to reach 17/18 °C by May.
If you’re not a fan of sea swimming there are some beautifully secluded rivers and waterfalls for a freshwater dip – during this season they’re particularly lively, having been treated to rainfall earlier in the year.
Reasons to book a getaway
If you fancy a little pre-summer preparation, we highly recommend a quick flight to Faro for a some TLC in Portugal’s sunniest region.
Get sun-tanned or in shape, or enjoy the normal holiday pastimes; beach wanders, lounging by the pool, delicious dining on Portuguese ‘cozinha’ (cuisine) and sampling the fabulous local wines and spirits.
What we love most about spring
Our favourite thing about late spring in the Algarve…
The gentle hum as everyone (and everything) begins to unfurl; recovering vibrancy with the warmth of the sun.
The landscape’s richly green and colour blooms all around, creating a feeling of renewal and energy, which can be quite contagious.
Energy and activity
Speaking of energy… whether you enjoy exercise for the simple pleasure of it, are training for something special, or are keen to get in shape for summer; first class sport, activity and leisure options abound in the Algarve, you just need to know where to find them.
