march weather

by carpy1230

hi , going to albufeira in march as a treat for my daughters 18th birthday, could anyone tell me what the weather is like, and is everywhere open, thanks

Re: march weather

by cubsur

It can be pretty cool and cloudy plus we do have rain here. Last March it averaged 14C during the day with later in month hitting 22C but cold at night, down to 5C early on. We didn't have much rain but that was probably because we had the worst winter since dinosaurs walked the earth; January and February were horrible.

The seasonal averages show that 14C is about normal at the start of the month, rising to 18C later. Night-times will feel quite cool, down to around 10C or less and that is is especially the case if the sun has been out all day.

Expect some showery days but rarely do we get prolonged grey and dismal days.

Hope that helps.

Sorry, to answer the second point, quite a lot of places are open but many of the resturants and bars that cater mainly for tourists remain firmly closed until Easter. But, 20,000 of us live here and we have to eat and drink somewhere and there are plenty of long-stay wintering migratory creatures here in March, so you won't find the town dead as it were.

The outdoor theme parks etc will not be open.

The beaches are fine on a sunny day but there will be no lifeguards so be careful. Most of the beach restaurants etc will also be closed but depending on excatly where you stay (Albufeira is a very big place) you might find somewhere open if the weather's nice.

Travel Tips for Albufeira

Parish-Church

by johnsakura

This church is located on the Rua da Igreja Nova and dates back to the 18th century (1782). Blessed on July 15th 1800 by the Bishop of the Algarve, Dom Francisco Gomes de Avelar, this edifice substituted the former Parish-Church which collapsed during the earthquake of 1755.
The church is Neo-classical in style, built with only one nave. It has 4 lateral chapels, the baptismal chapel, the choir, two pulpits and two lateral rooms. These rooms are dedicated to the Holy Souls of the Bishop S.Luís, Our Lady of Fátima and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
A magnificent painting is to be noted by the artist Samora Barros of Albufeira which decorates the church’s high altar and serves as a background for the image of Our Lady of the Conception, patron saint of Albufeira.

Albufeira hotel 2km out of town - perfect holiday

by Josie1610

Our hotel was 2km outside of Albufeira and that was ideal. It had 3 swimming pools; a 15 min walk to a secluded beach with a restaurant and sun loungers/umbrellas. Half of this beach area was exclusively for the sun lounger's use (fee payable even if staying at hotel) and the other half was for general use.

At the hotel, there was a children's play scheme, but when we were there, the only other children did not speak English and the tutors struggled to keep a 4 year old entertained when the other children were older and all spoke Portuguese.

The maitre d' for breakfast was wonderful. She was very efficient and pleasant - advising us on sitting outside with a young one; ensuring everything ran smoothly. The breakfasts were among the best I have ever come across. The selection and quality was wonderful.

The rooms were very nice - my one complaint would be that the sofa bed was very poor quality. It was the only issue I had with this hotel.

"Beach"

The beach was a combination of soft, white sand and outcrops of stark rocks. The water was reasonably warm - warmer than Florida in May. It did have ledges that could put you quite deep very quickly, but it was quite easy to swim in also.

"Evening in Albufeira Old Town"

Albufeira Old Town was very lively with restaurants everywhere and street entertainers throughout. It made a nice change of pace from our quiet days by the pool/beach. There were bars/karaoke/entertainers along the side streets as well.

One of our favourite restaurants was up a side street where our table and many others were actually on the steps of this street. Even so, the service everywhere was very good and the food was fine. Sometimes, it felt too touristy, but to be expected when you are wandering through the tourist areas. The costs were reasonable.
