About Algarve

A beautiful and fascinating combination of picture-perfect beaches, lively coastal towns and Moorish history. Couples can seek out the secluded coves along the rocky coastline, groups can follow the sounds of Portuguese beats pouring out of the many incredible night spots, and families can spend many happy hours exploring Albufeira, Vilamoura and Sagres. Soak up the sun in the spring and summer months, or enjoy a short winter break, when the temperature hovers between 17 and 20°C. Holidays to the Algarve are perfect for holidaymakers of all tastes, ages and interests.

The Algarve is all about enjoying the Portuguese coast at its very best, whether you’re looking for a short break in the sunshine, or a week away with the kids during the school holidays, you’ll find your ideal hotel or villa in one of the top resorts. There’s plenty to explore for the outdoorsy types, and for those who like to immerse themselves in the history and culture of a place – why not read up on your Moorish history on the plane over? Cheap holidays to Algarve are all about finding the perfect fit, so take a look at our fast facts below, and our ‘best for’ section to give you a head start on the right location, hotel and flight for you.

When To Go

The Algarve follows the pattern you would expect for the Portuguese coast, with July and August tending to be the scorchers, the spring being comfortably warm, and the winter months slightly cooler, particular in the early evenings. On average the temperature sticks at around 28°C in the height of summer, but you’ll be kept cool by the pleasant sea breeze. But if you prefer the early 20s then April, May and October are the months to pick. It’s a great place to visit all year round though, with temperatures rarely dropping below 16°C even in December, January and February.
