Mildest and sunniest winter climate in continental Europe

 

300 days of sunshine!

One truth about the weather in the Algarve is that compared to the rest of continental Europe it is always better down there in the south of Portugal, temperatures being usually higher in winter as well as in summer. The climate often misjudged as Mediterranian, it is not just mild but also wild – not at least due to the significant influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the gulf stream. And because of the sun that shines on an average 300 days per year. It happens that the sea water in August is freezing cold, but in November you might find the seawater pleasant and go for a swim, because in the later months of the year the currents carry more warm water from Africa to the European coast. In the late year you can have more than 20° air temperature and bright sunshine all day long around Christmas time. If you catch such a winter weather period and find a nice beach in a bay protected from the wind you will surely start sunbathing. But do not generally expect beach and bathing weather in the winter months. This time of the year you will find a mild climate with lush green vegetation, flowering meadows and almond trees. The nights are fresh but in daytime 18°-20° are not unlikely. As soon as the sun comes out you feel its warmth and southern power.

With 300 days of sunshine per year there are 65 left for clouds or rain. Except for July and August where you have nearly 100% guarantee of sunshine all day long these other days spread all over the year from September until June – every year with a different focus and intensity you cannot predict. We realize yoga coachings & retreats in Suites Alba Resort & Spa since 2008 and usually had at least a couple of hours of sunshine every single day, even if it was rather cloudy or rainy. The location is exceptionally good – if the sun comes out it does in Baia Cristal ;-) This fact makes it the perfect yoga retreat venue for hire in Portugal. Here you will find a detailed climate table of the Algarve.
