What's the weather like in Tavira in May?

Rain

In comes May to Tavira with rising temperatures and dropping rainfall chances. During this month, the rainfall amounts average 21 mm, dropping 17 mm from April. That amount of rain falls over 8 days on average. More than likely you'll have more rain-free days than rainy days during your stay at this resort that's part of the Algarve province in Portugal. Check the local forecast each day before you head out to see if you'll need to tote around an umbrella.

Sea Temperature and Sunshine Hours

The chance of a sunny day on any given day is 67 percent and the chance of clouds is 33 percent. Thanks to abundant sunshine, you'll want to head down to the beach. The ocean water is warming up too, averaging 18°C (around 64°F) this time of the year. That might feel a little chilly still to some people, but with the warm outside air, you'll warm up fast when you get out.  You'll get an average 12 hours of sunshine during the day this month, plenty of time for sightseeing and fun.

Temperature

The average daily temperature for this month is 17°C (about 63°F), lovely weather for exploring the area.

At night-time, you can expect the lows to go down to around 12°C (around 54°F), but those cooler temperatures will be a welcome respite after the warm day. The highs get up to a near-perfect 22°C (around 72°F), so be sure to take advantage and get outside to enjoy the day. 

The highest temperature ever recorded for this area in this month was an extreme 34°C (around 92°F), more than likely caused by the Sirocco winds. The lowest temperature ever went down to a chilly 7°C (about 44°F). Fortunately, these extreme temperatures are rare and typically, you'll get moderate temperatures to enjoy during your stay at the resort.

Beaches in Tavira in May

Cabanas Beach

Found in the village of Cabanas, just down from Tavira, Ilha de Cabanas-Mar or Cabanas Beach, has 7 km of white sand beach. The ocean water is starting to warm up at 18°C (around 64°F), so some may wish to try swimming. You can access the beach via a shuttle boat that runs from the town. One-way trips costs as little as 60 cents a person.
