With its location on the southern tip of Portugal, Faro is an excellent destination nearly all year round. Temperatures are mild throughout the year. Winter lows average in the upper 40s to low 50s and winter highs average in the mid 50s to low 60s. Summer lows average low to mid 60s and summer highs average low to mid 80s. The summer is relatively rain free, while winter receives the most rain, mainly in period between October and January.

If you want to miss the crowds, try to avoid travel to Faro (and the southern tip of Portugal in general) during July and August, when most people travel to the area to soak up the sun. Late spring, early summer, and early fall are all great times to visit Faro as well, with the bonus that there will be fewer people to wade through on your way to the ideal sunning spot on the beach.
