Weather in Lagos
If you are a tourist searching for an ideal location with extravagant beaches and some of Europe's finest summer weather, then Lagos may just be the perfect holiday destination. Or if you are a sun worshipper looking for the perfect place to avoid the cold of winter of Northern Europe, Lagos is exactly what you should be looking for.
Located in the Barlavento region of the Algarve at the south westernmost point of Europe, Lagos is one of Portugal's most well renowned and sunniest tourist destinations.
Excellent beaches and incredible surfing facilities attract laid back outdoor types all year round. But thanks to the role Lagos played in the Portuguese Age of Discovery it is also a uniquely historical place to visit. Lagos is popular with families, large groups, couples and individual travellers who all have plenty to keep them entertained, every day of the year.
Just like the majority of the Algarve region, Lagos boasts over 3000 hours of warm uninterrupted sunshine every year. And with a flight time of less than three hours from the United Kingdom, it's no wonder that so many holiday makers from the UK choose to visit Lagos for their holidays. It's the perfect way to avoid the chilly winters experienced further north and the ideal way to be guaranteed some consistent summer sun.
The climate in Lagos is much warmer than the nearby island of Porto Santo and offers a much drier climate than locations such as Madeira. And though the cool breeze from the Atlantic can sometimes build to be quite strong, simply by choosing a more secluded beach, you can always enjoy the heat in Lagos.
The average temperature in the region will typically reach highs around 30°C throughout the warmest months of July and August. And with the climate throughout the winter lingering at 15°C, Lagos creates the ultimate destination for year round sunshine and warmth.
Summer in Lagos
The extensive hot summer in Lagos is perfect for worshippers of everlasting dry sunshine. The widespread summers extend from May right through to October where forecasted temperatures will rarely drop below 20°C, ensuring the region is hugely popular with visitors from across the world.
From the months of June until August around twelve hours of hot sunshine can be expected every day as the climate climbs towards peak temperatures of 28°C or more. However the soothing breeze that sweeps inland from the Atlantic offers relief from the sometimes unbearable heat and ensures humidity levels never become uncomfortable.
The average sea temperatures during the summertime are always inviting, with levels raising to 23°C in the peak of the summer period. This makes conditions perfect for swimming in the sea as well as all the other types of water sport activity that are enjoyed from the beaches and harbour in Lagos.
Nightfall is particularly pleasant during the months of summer in Portugal. Temperatures rarely fall below 18°C, even in the dead of night. And in the core months of July and August, this minimum average temperature will usually rise to 20°C. This beautiful climate is perfect for the outdoor hospitality that is so popular at this time of the year. However the mild breeze ensures the temperature remains very comfortable. In particular, Lagos town comes to life during the peak holiday period with over 300 pubs, clubs and restaurants in the area offering something for every type of visitor.
Rain never seems to be an issue in Lagos during the summer. Expected rainfall through the entire peak period is minimal. And any rain that does fall is usually so mild that it is bearably noticeable. Instead visitors to the region enjoy long, dry, hot days and beautifully warm nights. The perfect summer climate for all.
Winter in Lagos
As the weather in winter will commonly turn very cold in the UK, it is still possible to enjoy a golden tan by taking a vacation to the sunny coast of Lagos. High temperatures during the winter months will typically stay around 16°C in Lagos. And you can be assured of at least six hours of warm sunshine per day in the region.
This is the perfect place to visit to enjoy a high chance of experiencing Christmas on the beach, or at least in the warmth of a very pleasant sun terrace. And with many types of accommodation still open throughout the winter, there are plenty of places to stay.
Rainfall is still quite uncommon throughout the winter months. Any rainfall experienced will usually come in the form of brisk showers which, though they may be heavy, are typically very short-lived, although December and January will be the wettest months of the year.
Thanks to the refreshing climate and near-constant sunshine in this part of Portugal, Lagos in the winter is the perfect time for walkers and explorers to enjoy the region. It is also very inviting to the many keen surfers and cyclists that visit the area, who can spend more of the day enjoying the much milder temperature experienced at this time of the year.
Spring and Autumn in Lagos
The months of spring and autumn are one of the best times to be in Lagos. It is the ideal time for those that want to beat the summer crowds, yet still enjoy the relative warmth of the season.
Average temperatures during spring and autumn still hover around 20°C. And with many destinations offering discounted prices before the peak season starts, it is the ideal location for a cheap sun getaway.
The sun will shine brightly for approximately nine to ten hours per day in both the spring and the summer months. However this time of year also offers more lushness and green to the environment, providing a greater opportunity to enjoy the varied plant and wildlife that Lagos has to offer.
Whilst spring sea temperatures do tend to be a little cooler, in autumn the sea temperatures are still relishing from the hot summer sun. This ensures temperatures of more than 20°C throughout the period. And with beaches far less crowded than they are in the peak summer period, it is the ideal time to visit the beaches and enjoy a lot more space.
Towns and bars are still very lively during spring and autumn, with many bars staying open all year round thanks to the consistent climate in this part of the world.
Whatever time of year you choose to visit, checking the weather forecast in Lagos ensures you can enjoy this perfect place for a holiday every day of the year.
