Photographer's Note

madeira is known for its micro climates..you can virtually chase around to get the sun or cloud..due mainly to it being an island and in the flow of the atlantic weather patterns

Portugal's temperate, mild climate makes it a favoured holiday destination. The Algarve gets the most of the sunshine throughout the year, where high temperatures in peak summer months are cooled a little by Atlantic breezes. Not so the central south Alentejo region which broils in summer.

During July and August its hot everywhere in Portugal (the Portuguese tend to holiday in August, so book early if you coming then!). Temperatures rarely fall below zero around Lisbon, so pleasant all year round city breaks are on the menu here. There are rainy seasons in Portugal, particularly to the north so be prepared. The island of Madeira has a mini micro climate all its own and the Azores is favoured in the high season summer months when high winds and rain are less frequent.
