Find sailing routes in Portugal or choose another yacht charter in Atlantic Europe.
Portugal has a diverse climate from north to south and the weather varies considerably from one region to another, but in general Portugal offers warm and sunny summers, mild winters, and autumn and spring are normally warm however with some wind and rainfall.
Three sets of influences are involved: Atlantic, continental (Mesetan), and the Mediterranean. The Atlantic climate predominates overall, putting most of the country into the humid zone of the Iberian Peninsula. The climate is cool and rainy in the north and when moving south it becomes gradually warmer and sunnier. The far south region has a dry and sunny microclimate. In the interior, on the border with Spain, the climate becomes a little more continental.
The central regions of Portugal including Lisbon and The Silver Coast have a combination of elements from the Mediterranean and Atlantic climate which means mild winters and hot and dry summers. Especially the inner regions of central Portugal can get very hot during the summer with temperatures over 30 degrees, whereas a fresh breeze from the Atlantic cools down the coastal areas. The southern part of Portugal is probably one of the sunniest places in Europe. Constant sea breeze helps to keep temperatures at pleasant levels.
The winter in Portugal generally starts in late November and lasts till February. The summer period is a nice long period from May to September. The landscape in the north is definitely green, while it gradually becomes arider towards the south, which has a fairly dry climate. The sun in central and southern Portugal shines regularly in summer, but even in winter, there are several sunny periods. Portugal gets more sunshine on average than California. Summer, from June to mid-September, is warm in the center and south at 23-28 °C. You can expect a high average of 29 °C in the height of summer and an average of 26 °C throughout this season. Along the southern coasts, temperatures remain similar to those of Lisbon, because of the influence of the ocean.
