Best Time to Visit Portugal

With more days of sunshine than anywhere else in Europe, the best time to visit Portugal really depends on the type of holiday you want. In the summer months of July and August, the days can be quite hot and the locals take the beaches and resort towns to escape the heat and enjoy the lovely, warm water.

Best time to visit

In spring, the countryside comes alive with blooms and the moderate temperatures make touring and sightseeing during the day pleasant. The harvest season is in autumn, but the temperatures are still warm and the summer crowds have lessened. In the winter months (November – February), the temperatures have dropped, but the days will be sunny. Beach resorts are closed but this is a lovely time to see the cities without the holiday crowds. Our Portugal experts will be able to talk you through each season and help you choose the time of travel that is right for you.
