When to go to Portugal, Best Time

Our evaluation by month


Portugal is the ideal destination for those who dream of a trip in constant movement. The Portuguese countryside, between villages, cliffs, different panoramas, historic cities, towns and castles, monasteries and churches, is the ideal destination for those who dream of a trip in constant movement. Of course, you must not miss the magnificence of Lisbon, perhaps with a tour of its neighborhoods aboard the historic streetcar 28, but also Porto, Coimbra, Faro and more.

Portugal's landscapes are constantly changing, and from the green and lush north, where beautiful vineyards reign, we move to the Mediterranean scrubland in the south, with orange groves, olive trees and wheat fields.

Beach lovers should know that the most beautiful beaches are in the south,

and are often windswept and ideal for surfers and other water sports. Many are wild and secluded, others, especially around Lisbon, are more lively and animated. In the Algarve region there is a continuous and numerous succession of beaches, sheltered streets or rocks from which to dive into incredibly blue waters. The most striking is the praia de Marinha.


Portugal's climate is strongly influenced by ocean currents,

which greatly mitigates temperatures on the coast, where winters are mild and summers are hot but not sultry. Inland, winters become colder, although temperatures rarely drop below freezing, and summers are very hot and scorching.

The north of Portugal reserves more abundant rainfall and lower temperatures than the south of the country. Sometimes, during the winter, snow can fall in the most remote areas and in the hills. In the rainiest period in December, January and February, even a strong wind can blow. Moving south from the center, temperatures are getting higher and the climate drier.

The ocean water temperature stays around 15°C in winter and 20°C in summer, always a little cool for swimming in the sea.

The ideal period for a trip to Portugal is from April to October

, when rainfall is scarce, practically scarce in the summer months of June, July and August, especially in the center-south, between Lisbon and Faro.
