Funchal – Weather
Funchal stays consistently warm throughout the year with the weather being hot and dry in the summer and fairly mild in the winter. In the summer months of June to September, visitors can expect daily highs to fluctuate around the mid 20s and only drop slightly at night. The cooling sea breeze means that the weather on the island is never particularly unbearable. The warm current keeps the sea temperature bath-like, which is perfect for swimming. Rainfall is more likely in autumn but travelling at this time and in spring and even winter can still be quite pleasant. The climate rarely drops below 14°C and the sun shines for a respectable 6-7 hours a day, making it ideal for hiking holidays and seeing all the sights around the city.
