What to bring?
As the Algarve has over 300 days of sun a year, you need to take water with you, a hat, and sunscream, while walking in Portugal. Ofcourse comfortable walking shoes. If you go on your own, bring a map of the area and/or a compass.
The best time of the year for walking in Portugal, is spring and autumn, as it is less hot then July and August, and less chance of rain, as it might happen in the winter months. We do not recmmend to walk in Portugal, during the day in the summer, due to the high temperatures. But you can have nice morning and evening walks in Portugal in the summer!
