August arrives in sunny Algarve with perfect beach weather!

The Algarve will be welcoming August with hot and sunny weather and warm seawater, perfect for a trip to the beach this weekend.

In fact, forecasters say that the Algarve is the only region in Portugal where temperatures will actually increase this weekend.

Maximum temperatures will top 35ºC in the region on Saturday, dropping slightly the next day, according to forecasts.

Meanwhile, seawater temperatures in the Algarve will remain pleasantly warm (around 24ºC) due to “southeastern waves which will bring warm water in from the Mediterranean”, meteorologist Cristina Simões from the national sea and atmosphere institute (IPMA) told Diário de Notícias.
