What's the weather like in Tavira in March?


The cold of winter starts to recede in March in Tavira, part of the Algarve province of Portugal, and the rain chances decrease as well. During this month, the area sees only 39 mm of rainfall, which falls over 12 days on average. This means you have a good chance of getting more sunny days than rainy days during your stay. The chance of a sunny day is 67 percent on any given day of the month.

Sunshine Hours

With the increase in average daylight hours, you also get more opportunities and time to be outside seeing the sights of the town. This time of the year gets about 9 hours of sunshine each day. Be sure to bring along your sunglasses and a hat, and as your packing, you'll want to have a light jacket or sweater for the cooler evening hours.
