i went to faro in january and it was cold without a jacket. that's all relative, which is why i attached that link. it looks like it's going to be 17 centigrade and 61 fahrenheit, so a bit warmer. i wore a scarf, sweater, jacket and pants at night, a long sleeved shirt, sweater, scarf and pants during the day. faro is on the coast at the bottom of the algarve.
hope that helps!

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You should really pack lots of high factor sun cream for the first week or so because summertime temperatures in the Algarve can exceed 40'c.Insect repellent too and also something called baythion this is a dust used to combat Ants (nasty little things)
