Lagos Weather September Averages, Portugal
While September traditionally heralds the start of autumn in Europe, the weather in Lagos could easily be mistaken for peak summer. Average high temperatures only fall by 2°C by the end of September. Which means 26°C is a regular occurrence in the region at this time of the year.
Historically highs of up to 33°C have been experienced in Lagos in September, with this hottest temperature arriving in the region in 2006. And while average temperatures in a standard year are more likely to be around 23°C, it is still a beautiful time to visit Lagos.
10 hours of daily sunshine ensure very bright, clear days for all residents of Lagos in September. Even when the sun goes down, average low temperatures around 19°C ensure there is plenty of warmth in the air. Though it is coming to the end of the peak summer season, the sun is still very powerful at this time of the year, which means effective protection is required whenever you are out and about.
Sea temperatures are also blissful in Lagos in September, remaining at the peak temperature experienced throughout the entire month of August. At a very welcoming 23°C this is far warmer than many regions experience at any point in time. But in Lagos, this luxury is experienced for a full two months of the year.
Rain is also never an issue for visitors to Lagos in September. Though there is a chance that five days of the month will experience some precipitation, as only 16mm fall throughout September, any showers will be very brief. September is the perfect time to come for those that want to enjoy the peak summer climate in this part of Portugal but would rather wait until the heaviest crowds have dissipated.

For an added treat, book a room with a sea view, and enjoy the sunset every night of your stay.

Even in September, Praia da Figueira is littered with members of the surfing community. This beach definitely attracts the younger crowd.

Parasols and sunbeds are also available, but at Praia da Figueira, no one tends to sit down for too long.
Praia da Batata is a quaint little beach that offers peace and tranquillity all year round. Just a short walk from the main town, it's surprising that this beach isn't packed with visitors.

Unlike other beaches in Lagos, you don't have to go too far out to sea to reach the deeper water, and with lots of facilities surrounding the site, make sure you give it a try.
ZanziBar if full of life whether it is May, August or September. The welcoming crowds and the good quality music ensure this a popular hotspot with locals and visitors alike.

Excellent views and very generous portions ensure visitors to the Caramba Bar in Lagos want to come back again and again.

Though you wouldn't realise from the name, Castelo dos Governadores or Governor's Castle isn't a castle at all. Instead it is town wall that surrounds Lagos and provides the gate into the main centre. While not exactly as you would expect, the Governor's Castle is still a wonderful place to walk around. See it in all its glory in the peak September sun or tour in the warm evening air for a truly splendid site. The noticeboards along the way will give you some idea as to the historic significance of the area. The rest, you can leave up to your imagination.
