The climate of the Algarve (Portugal)
The Algarve consists of the entire width of the most southern part of Portugal. Although the Algarve is the most popular holiday destination in Portugal not the entire region has been swallowed up by mass tourism. Especially in the interior you can still find authentic villages. However, the Algarve is of course known as a sun, sea and beach destination. Every year millions of tourists travel here to enjoy everything this coastal region has to offer. Many golf courses can be found here and the one beach is even more beautiful than the other. The Algarve has a Mediterranean climate that is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. This influence causes temperatures to feel more pleasant and milder. Most rain falls during the winter from November till the end of March. The Algarve gets about 3,000 hours of annual sunshine; one of the highest figures in Europe. In the interior it may get very warm and dry because of the absence of the sea wind. Because of this forest fires occur on a regular basis.
