What’s the weather like in Madeira in August?
The Portuguese island of Madeira sits off the northwest coast of Africa, with its Mediterranean climate bringing mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers. August falls in the middle of Madeira’s high season, which is very popular because of the island’s hot temperatures, warm seas and beautifully mild evenings.
In August the average daytime temperature in Madeira is a warm 24°C, with highs of 26°C in the afternoons. At night the temperature falls only slightly to 21°C, perfect for evenings out under the stars. At this time of year rain is very rare, with August seeing an average of just 3mm over the course of the month, so you won’t need to pack a waterproof jacket. Each day gets around ten hours of sunshine and, along with sea temperatures of 23°C, it’s an ideal month for relaxing on the beach or swimming in the clear blue waters.
