Algarve is one of the best winter sun holiday destinations for British holidaymakers who’ve had enough of the December chill and Christmas revelry and would love to ring in the New Year with sunshine, fresh air, and by the beach.
The daytime high is 16°C – 18°C and you can expect a good nine hours of sunshine.
While you may not be able to go swimming because the waters aren’t exactly warm, winters in Algarve are when some of the most favorable conditions prevail for surfing, kitesurfing, and angling…especially on the beaches of the western Algarve. That’s where the Nortada (North Wind) blows and it attracts water sports lovers from all over the world.
Even otherwise, the weather is mild and great for discovering the Algarve countryside. The olive, almond, and orange groves, country roads up and down hills, cork plantations, forests, villages in the hills of Monchique, and paths that open up to small beaches and coves…you will love it.
If you love golf, then you don’t need to be told that some of the best golfing in the world is to be enjoyed in Algarve. Prices at the golf courses are reduced significantly during the winter. Portimao, Lagos, Sagres and other places have golf courses with varying levels of difficulty and all set amidst stunning scenery.
Winter sun golf breaks to Portugal are extremely popular. Golf resorts in the region offer great deals for a complete golf experience and more. If you love golf and wish to enjoy at some of the best courses designed by legends of the game, then you can save a pretty package if you head to Algarve in winter.
