Dress etiquette

by thebao

I'm off to Algarve in May and want to know what the weather will be like then - Is it primarily warm and i can survive on shorts and a t-shirt? Or will I need warmer clothing?

Also, want to go enjoy the nightlife in Albufeira and was wondering what the 'going-out' dress code is like over there? Can you wear flip flops? Do you need proper 'going-out' shoes???

Any advice appreciated!

the weather should mostly be nice in may, but you might get a rainshower.
also you should bring a light jacket for the late afternoon/early evening as they are often a little windy in portugal.

flip flops should be ok in most pubs, but clubs will mostly ask you to wear regular shoes.
tennis shoes are ok in most places.

portugese weather has some funny moved though.
you can almost be sure that it get´s very windy at around half past four in the afternoon and that it stas windy for 3-4 hours.
it´s a wind called the "nortada" and you can almost set your clock after it.
if it dosen't come then it´s mostly because there is a change of weather coming up.
when i lived and worked in portugal i was very dependant on the nortada as i was working with boats.

You will almost certainly need a pair of 'sensible' shoes or trainers if you intend to do a lot of walking around in the evenings, as many of the older town centres (you don't say where you are staying) have cobbled streets (or worse, here in Albufeira, stupid marble flagstones which are lethal when wet and wearing flip-flops) and I know from experience that walking on cobbles in flip-flops can be bad for the feet! Also there are steep hills in many towns to further test your fitness.

Weatherwise I agree with the previous posters. Down here in Albufeira, it has not been cold during the day (around 20C/68F)but has been a bit chilly at night, down to 9C/48F a few days ago. We have been getting a couple of days rain then a couple of good days. By May I hope it has got a little better (drier) but the weather is definitely in a funny mood!

Travel Tips for Albufeira

People gather together at sunset

by belgianchocolate

At some places , people come together too see the sun fall down in the sea. When i took this picture there where 30 or more people who came from the neighbourhood too watch.In november when I was there it is quit early and think about it , it really quickly gets colder then.

Living Statues

by Geoff_Wright

I expect that most of us have seen these Living Statues, but they never cease to amaze me, the way these people can stand so still, and for so long. And, it was very hot too! The one in the picture here, with Mary, seemed just like the one we saw last year in Torremolinos, but who knows?

One thing for sure is that the fascinate the children - until they suddenly move, and so do the kiddies, LOL!! Take a picture, and give them a Euro or whatever. It's always nice.

Albufeira and surrounding area

by bugalugs

The Algarve in southern Portugal has been invaded and fought over by the Phoenicians, Romans and Moors.

It has approximately 350,000 permanent in habitants but during the summer time when tourists invade this number can exceed 1,000.000

The old EN125 main road which runs along the coast has partially been renewed by a new dual carriageway. It starts at the Spanish border and stretches to the north of Albufeira which then links with the main road to Lisbon.

The Algarve has about 100 sandy beaches. Some can be busy, but it is possible to find nice secluded beaches. The sea is beautiful and temperatures can be quite warm even in the winter months.


Away from the coast are the foothills which lead to the highest point Foia which is 902 mts., above the village of Monchique. This mountain area is known for the layers of Roman terraces with granite stone walls. From this region also comes the locally brewed drink 'Medronho.

Dont sit on the same beach everyday, there is so much to see. Hire a car if possible (we didnt think much of the public transport) and explore this lovely region. This is Vilamoura a lovely place to visit, south of Albufeira.
