The cooler evenings are ideal for sipping cocktails at beachside bars or sampling local food in the region’s family-run restaurants.
In the daytime, the Algarve experiences highs of 32°C in the afternoon, so you’ll need to bring plenty of sun cream and seek shade during the hottest part of the day.
