Lagos Weather April Averages, Portugal
April in Lagos is a warm month. Average temperatures of 17°C create the perfect early holiday destination for visitors from Northern Europe at this time of the year. As well as for the many residents that now stay in the Algarve to enjoy the constant good weather it can provide.
While rain is never too much of an issue for Lagos, even in the winter months, there is a significant drying up period in April. This means only 11 days of the month will see any rain at all. And because a total of just 45mm of precipitation are expected throughout the entire month, even when it does rain it is never usually any more significant than a quick shower.
Many visitors to the area in April will want to take advantage of the cooler climate that is experienced at this time of the year, when compared to the summer months of June, July and August. However, this part of the Algarve has experienced some extreme conditions at this time of the year. The lowest ever temperature recorded in Lagos in April was a very cool 6°C. While the hottest temperature ever reached during this month was over 28°C!
In the average year, temperature highs of 20°C are more likely in Lagos in April. While conditions, even at night, don't usually fall below 13°C. This provides for a beautifully welcoming climate which is just as attractive to walkers and cyclists as it is for the many historians that like to enjoy the sights of the area.
April is also the last of the cooler months in terms of sea temperatures too. While many Northern Europeans would think 17°C is acceptable, this is the coldest the sea ever usually gets in Lagos. However in the months to follow, temperatures of up to 23°C make the sea a far more tempting place to be.
If you are taking young children to Lagos before the summer sun truly begins, then Quinta das Achadas is the ideal place to stay. This family friendly 19th century farmhouse will keep visitors of all ages entertained. Whether it's time in the playground, pool or hot tub that keeps them busy or making friends with the pigs, chickens and other wildlife that are also residents. This rural retreat offers easy access to local beaches. But transport is required to get into the centre of the town. However with spacious rooms, communal dinners made by very welcoming hosts and a fabulous atmosphere, Quinta das Achadas offers a welcome break for everyone.
Before the peak summer season sees Lagos filled with visitors, Villas D. Dinis offers excellent accommodation in Lagos. The traditional terracotta themed buildings are made even more attractive by the glory of the sunsets in April. And with the temperature usually warm enough to take a dip in the very well maintained pool, everything is on hand for a very pleasant stay. Offering great value for money, Villas D. Dinis is within walking distance of the local beach and Lagos town. And with every amenity you could want at your fingertips, it's the perfect opportunity to sit back and enjoy it all.
Marina Club Lagos Resort is one of the most popular hotels in Lagos. But it is still usually possible to find some availability in April. Sited directly on the marina, this hotel is well maintained all year round, to provide a touch of sanctuary in the busy town centre. The swimming pool always looks inviting, no matter what time of year it is. While the spacious apartments offer plenty of room for up to four guests in each one. Choose self-catering, bed and breakfast or half board facilities and ensure you make the most of any stay in Lagos.
Don't miss a night at the Shaker Bar when you are in Lagos. As one of the most popular bars in the area, this place is buzzing in April, in July and even on Christmas Day. Speciality cocktails, cool beer and great music ensure everyone wants at least one drink at the Shaker Bar. And with friendly staff, live sports and great prices, it's sure to be more than one drink you enjoy before it's time to move on.
Bar Acores offers a little Jamaican style in the middle of Lagos. While the service is laid back, the staff are friendly and the drinks are definitely worth waiting for. Take a seat and wait your turn and be entertained by a very congenial host. The atmosphere is welcoming and the guests enjoy every minute of it. It's like having your very own local in the middle of Lagos, you just have to go with the flow.
If you're missing a bit of good old home cooking, then take a trip to Quay Lagos. Situated in the heart of the Marina, the Sunday lunch could easily be better than your Mum used to make. And that's before you even get started on the puddings. The owner is lovely, the staff truly welcoming, and there is even a resident singer who takes the odd turn at the mic. It's the perfect place to enjoy a friendly lunch or dinner, all whilst appreciating an exceptional view.
Especially if you choose to stay in the Marina Club Lagos Resort, the Lagos Fish Market is an unmissable treat. Over three floors there are a wealth of fresh produce for sale from fish and meats through to fresh fruit and vegetables too. Entry is free and the prices inside are very competitive. Just don't go on Mondays expecting a fish dinner, as that is the one day of the week fish won't be on sale. For the best selection, arrive early and see the fish as they come in. Or go to the second floor and enjoy something from the restaurant while overlooking the beautiful sight of the bay.
When you want to see the animals in their own habitat, a trip Dolphin Watching is incredibly rewarding. Take a trip from Lagos Harbour in a specifically designed Rigid Inflatable Boat which gives you the best chance to get up close and personal with our aquatic friends. The very helpful team have a fantastic track record for finding the dolphins when you are out at sea. Though the trip can be costly, it does make for a very special treat.
