What’s the weather like in Portugal in June?
Sitting on the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal’s the furthest west country in Europe, surrounded by neighbouring Spain and the North Atlantic Ocean. You’ll get different weather around the country, although the most popular holiday spots enjoy lots of warmth and sun in June with not much rain.
The south has a Mediterranean climate which gets lots of hot weather in June, particularly in the popular Algarve region where it’s driest and sunniest. The north of the country’s warmed by the Gulf Stream, while refreshing sea breezes will keep you comfortable on the coast.
There’s differences around Portugal, but capital Lisbon gives a good idea for the rest of the country and has an average high of 26ºC in June. Things stay quite pleasant at night, with temperatures cooling to 16ºC. The sea’s a refreshing 19ºC and humidity’s low. You won’t get much rain at this time, with just 16mm over five rainy days, and you can expect long days with 15 hours of daylight and ten hours of sunshine. UV levels will be very high so make sure you wear sun cream. The sun sets at around 9pm in June.
Things to Do
The June weather’s ideal across much of Portugal for lounging on the beach or by the pool. The Algarve has some stunning beaches, and resorts such as Albufeira that have a relaxing atmosphere during the day and plenty of life at night. Visit waterparks such as Aqualand, or grab a surfboard and hit the waves.
