What's the weather like in Lisbon in June

June is extremely warm in Lisbon and is the perfect time to visit and see all that the city has to offer.

Temperature

The average temperature during the day reaches 20°C or about 60°F, but average highs are 23°C (that's about 74°F). At night the lows average 16°C (about 61°F). At least 25 out of 30 days the temperature will be above 21°C and you can expect at least 7 days when the thermometer reaches above 30°C. The highest ever-recorded temperature in the past 30 years was 42°C and the lowest ever recorded in that, same period was 11°C.

Rainfall

The average monthly rain is around 56mm. On average you might see a slight shower 9 days during the month but it will be gone almost immediately. There is a very low likelihood that you will see a thunderstorm in June, at most one day during the month.

Sunshine Hours

You get 10 hours of average daily sunshine and about 15 hours of daylight during June. It is sunny 73% of the daylight hours. The sun rises close to 6 AM most of the month and sets a little past 9PM. The UV numbers are at their highest in June and July and reach a 9, or very high, on the UV index scale. This calls for precautions including regular applications of sunblock during the day and avoidance if possible of the sun during peak daylight hours before and after noon.

Humidity level are about like May with evening relative humidity in June at 54% and morning humidity levels at 83%. The dew point remains at very comfortable levels and averages 13°C.

Wind

Wind speeds stay around 12 mph most of the summer. You will experience blowing sand or dust 7 days during most Junes. The dominant wind direction is southeast, with the wind probability on the Beaufort scale of 39%, so for surfers the waves should be great for riding. Fog occurs less than 3 days a month and only for short periods of time.

Sea Temperature

The average sea temperature is about 18°C (about 65°F), so you can head down to the beaches of Carcavelos, Estoril,and Cascais to soak up the sun and try out your surfing skills.

Lisbon Hotels in June

Santos is a great area to stay in when visiting Lisbon and there are lots of good hotels to choose from here. The York House option provides beautiful surroundings with all the amenities in a historical location. The hotel used to be a Carmelite Convent and the architecture is 17th century. It is only a ten-minute walk from city centre.

Another Santos stable, also very historical, is the Palacio Ramalhete. Formerly an 18th century palace, the antique furniture complements the décor nicely. In Janelas Verdes, there is a great pool and nice lounge area. The National Museum of Ancient Art is right outside your doorstep if you stay here.

There are also some bargain hotels in the Santos area. The Oasis Backpaker's Mansion has a communal kitchen, nice indoor lounge area with a fireplace and serves a buffet breakfast. There is also a cocktail hour each night. A second option for the minimalist traveller is the Hostel Bairrio Alto near the Baixa/Chiado Metro Station. You have the option of staying in shared dormitories or self-catering apartments. There is a shared kitchen, and Chiado, the famous shopping area, is very close by. A third bargain option is the Residencial Valentina. Small private rooms with a TV and phone are offered and there are some with private bathrooms. It is only a five minute walk from Bairro Alto.

Nearby upscale Lapa has some bargain hotels with great amenities. The Lapa 82 Boutique Bed & Breakfast offers all private rooms with private baths. A nice feature is the breakfast served in the living room by the terrace. The Basilica da Estrela is a three minute walk away.

Also in Lapa is the House Sao Bento. Located in yet another historical building, the rooms other than the suite have shared bathroom facilities. Each room has a deck and is airconditioned. The kitchen is communal.

The 54 Santa Catarina Apartments has private bathrooms in their studio and apartment accommodations. The Tagus river is nearby along with plenty of bars and restaurants.

A little off the beaten path is the Ha Mar ao Luar in Setubal. South of the city, the views are spectacular. Each room has a kitchen. Breakfast is served on the terrace by a lovely garden and there is a nice pool.

Lisbon Beaches for June

There are miles of beaches along the Caparica coast. The Praia da Morena in the north is very family-friendly with plenty of places to eat and drink along the way.

The Praia da Seria too is popular with families. Both these beaches are very crowded in the summer and traffic getting there can be trying. Leave early. The Ponte 25 de April is the bridge you must cross to get to this area and miles of backups are not uncommon during summer months.

Bars and Restaurants

A fabulous piano bar with a relaxing atmosphere is the O Bom O Mau E O Vilao. They have live music as well as exciting movie screenings. The bar is divided into small, intimate rooms for more privacy if desired.

In Chiado you will find the reasonably priced Restaurante Cervejaria Trindade. Very popular, there are often long lines of locals waiting patiently to get in. The restaurant is housed in what was one of the first beer houses in the city.

The Restaurante O Nobre serves fish and game. Located on Avenida Sacadura Cabral, prices are reasonable and the dish preparation excellent. This is an ideal place to take your family, freinds or partner.

Retaurante Tagide in Chiado is known not only for its cuisine but for the views overlooking Lisbon city. Meat, fish and even vegetarian dishes are served here. 

One of Lisbon's top chefs, Chef Olivier, has opened four restaurants in Lisbon. The Restaurante Honra By Olivier is one of the newest and uses traditional Portuguese recipes. You will be treated nicely here, with wonderful service and a delicious selection of meals to choose from.

For fine dining the Mini Bar is one of the most elegant available. Dinner seating starts at 6:30 PM. The cuisine is a mix of local and international. The bar closes well after the restaurant.

The Casa de Pasto serves well prepared but simple grilled fish and tapas cooked in a charcoal oven. Desserts are also a favourite here. The Mediterranean, European and Portuguese mixture of choices on the menu mean there is something for anyone and everyone.

On the south bank of the Tagus River you will find the Atira-te ao Rio. Ferries run regularly. The fresh fish and outside tables from where you can watch the sun set make the short journey across from Lisbon worth the effort. You will love the fresh seafood, the starters and desserts make this resturant well worth the prices. 

More great seafood, including sushi, visit SeaMe in Chiado. The style is oriental but you can get classic Portuguese fish dishes here also. The modern, stylish decor makes you feel comfortable and the mellow lighting makes this restaurant perfect for dates and evening meals.

Things to do in Lisbon in June

Super Bock Super Rock is a series of rock concerts held in parks across the city, including the Parque das Naçoes and Parque do Tejo. Anyone that is into live music, and espeically pop will throughly enjoy this concert in the sunshine.

Cascais International Sailing Week sees many exciting sailing competitions take place. The week it is held is always in June, mainly due to the weather. Put your sunglasses on and get in involved in sailing week.

The European Wave Freestyle Funboard Championship and PWA World Cup Guincho Wave Contest takes place at Guicho Beach in nearby Sintra. Surfers from all over the world come to compete in this competition. Partake and see some amazing tricks in the waves!

If you are tired of the beach but need to let the children get rid of some excess energy, try the Adventure Park. There are various challenging courses for all ages including rope climbing, bridges and swings. Children will love this place and adults who want to let out their inner child.

The views of the city are gorgeous from the cable cars that run by the Oceanarium. The cars overlook the Vasco da Gama Bridge and the river banks too. It's worth riding on one of these for the fabulous view and for such a cheap price you'd be silly not to really. An ideal experience if the sun is shining! The hills around parts of Lisbon can be very steep. There are three small trams that are free with your Lisbon Card that make climbing them much easier, especially at the end of a long day's sightseeing.
