If you like it hot and dry. Go in the summer -- during these months Algarve will see 12 hours of sunshine per day on average and almost no rain. On average, it gets more than 300 days of sunshine a year. That being said, escaping the cold Canadian winter is also a solid choice because no matter what, in comparison, it’ll be great. Algarve basically has the same climate as the Mediterranean and because of this has become one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. It’s actually one of Europe’s sunniest places, (sunnier even than California in the USA).
