Portugal is a great year-round destination with mild warm temperatures throughout the year.
Visiting Portugal in Spring
Expect temperatures between 15 degrees in March and 20 degrees in May.
Visitors to Portugal start to pick up from March when the temperatures start to creep up again. April is a great time to visit for outdoor activities and watching the landscape start to change and blossom. Expect warm weather and sunny skies in spring.
Visiting Portugal in Summer
Expect temperatures between 22 degrees in June and 28 degrees in August.
A lot of people come in July and August because that’s just when people naturally get their holidays so expect the coast to be a lot busier than the rest of the year. It’s also worth noting that temperatures in August can reach up to 40 degrees so it might not be the best time to visit big cities or do energetic outdoor activities.
Visiting Portugal in Autumn
Expect temperatures between 24 degrees in September and 17 degrees in November.
September would be the best month to visit as the temperature starts to cool but it is still nice and warm. This would be a great time to plan your visit to the coast where you’ll see less crowds too. The autumn welcomes a change in the landscape again so it’s an ideal time to get outdoors.
Visiting Portugal in Winter
Expect temperatures around 17 degrees from December to February.
Winter can be very very mild and so planning a visit to Portugal in the winter would also work. Generally speaking, the wettest month is February so you probably want to avoid that time. Other than that Portugal is a great all year round destination.
