TRAVEL Algarve

The Algarve, in southern Portugal, enjoys around 300 days of sunshine a year. Hot summers are tempered by cool and refreshing Atlantic Ocean breezes while winters are mild and for the most part, dry. 

Blessed with such an agreeable climate, it's no wonder the region is described as the country's "playground province." Indeed, as Europe's sunniest destination, the Algarve is a vacation paradise waiting to be explored.
