Portugal has a distinctly Mediterranean climate, influenced by its proximity to ocean, and is one of the warmest countries in Europe. The pleasant weather during the spring, summer and autumn seasons, and the milder winter in comparison to other countries in Europe, have made Portugal tourism popular in recent years.
Summer runs from June to September and is the peak season for visitors to Portugal, driven by the warm weather and balmy nights. If you’re looking to frolic in the sea or soak up some sun on the sand, summer is the best time to visit Portugal’s beaches and seaside towns.
Spring in Portugal begins earlier than other parts of Europe, in February. The beginning of spring can be rainy, but the weather warms up and by April, surf schools are packed, and the beaches are buzzing. If you’re looking to enjoy the heat without high prices, visiting Portugal during the end of spring is a great option. While autumn in Portugal is not as cold as in other countries, it is rainy and can become slightly chilly in the evenings.
