The Weather – What to Expect

One of the main reasons to choose The Algarve is the weather.

The region is renowned for its quality of light and its no co-incidence that for many years it has been the preferred location for many photography trips both Professional and Amateur. It is also widely acknowledged as one of the prime Golf locations in Europe.

Lets not kid ourselves, winter is winter wherever you go on mainland Europe, it gets dark earlier and the nights are cold. However, The Algarve is renowned for its mild winter climate and it is consistently the warmest and sunniest region in mainland Europe, averaging 5 hours of sunshine per day in winter! 

And – Winter and Spring is quiet and very cheap in comparison to Summer and Autumn.

In the winter shooting outdoor fashion is comfortable most dry days, occasionally in winter (particularly November and February) it is warm enough for nude shooting. Spring starts in March most years and temperatures rise and its possible to be outdoors in comfort most days. By April nude, beach and pool shooting is comfortable most days.  Do bare in mind that December and January are the wettest months and could be compared to late September/October in the UK... although not quite as wet and dull! 

Winter is a great time for golf in the Algarve with mainly agreeable temperatures and less busy courses. Spring and Autumn are perfect for Golf, but this is reflected by the fact courses are at their busiest and green fees are at their highest.

The average daily winter (November to February) high temperature in Algarve is 17c with up to 24c possible some days, daytime temperature rarely drops below 14c on average. Most days are sunny with a 25% chance of rain in the wettest months (Dec/Jan). Evenings are on the cool side, averaging 12c but can drop to low single figures very occasionally. By March the weather becomes warmer with days in the low 20's more common. By April days are mostly sunny and low to mid 20's although bare in mind occasional poor weather is possible right up to mid May.
