How is the weather?
Good all year around. Happens that it rains in winter and a bit in Autumn and spring, but then not for long. The summers are dry, warm and sunny all day.
How is the water temperature?
The southwest coast of Portugal has the cold water stream flowing past it year round, so the water temperature never get's tropical, but in summer nice enough to swim in bathing suits. For surfing you need a 3/2 mm wet suit all year around, August and September you can surf in shorts sometimes, in November - March we recommend 4/3 mm wetsuit.

What should I bring?
In the Algarve we are blessed with a temperate climate this means nice, warm summers which never get too hot and overall great spring, fall and winter with a lot of sunny days! In the summer (June to September) the temperature is warm, so all you need is your summer clothes, sunglasses and a sun screen and a cap is a good idea idea for your journey. Don't forget to bring a warm sweater as it can be quite windy on the coast and it can cool down in the evenings. In the spring, winter and fall it's a good idea to bring some warmer clothes and maybe a rain jacket for those few rainy days. Casa Fajara provides umbrellas. But don't forget to bring some lighter clothes for those lovely sunny days!
How are the waves?
Good all year round! In the summer is usually better for beginners as the waves are smaller and the water warmer. In fall, winter and spring the waves are bigger and better.
