We love February in the Algarve because it’s full of romance and colour…and not just for Valentine’s Day!
We celebrate the whole month with beautiful pink and white Almond Blossom, blankets of yellow Bermuda Buttercups, incredible blue skies with amazing clouds and the most romantic thing of all, the sunrise and sunset moments!
Of course we love Valentine’s Day and our favourite thing is to go for a stroll along the cliffs and then find a place for lunch; normally the weather gives us the gift of sunshine and alfresco dining, but if not, a cosy local café or restaurant it is, to enjoy some great Portuguese food, at a fairly ridiculous (cheap) price!
This year Carnival (or “Carnaval”) falls in February, the 13th to be precise, to mark the last day before Lent, so we get colourful parades and festivities across the Algarve from 10th to the 13th in most places. It’s a time for all ages to dress up and have fun and the supermarkets and Chinese shops are already stocked with outfits and accessories!
As well as Carnaval, we’ve got the Volta ao Algarve cycling event to look forward to, Fado music, theatre, exhibitions, festivals and markets…just take a squiz at our Algarve Events!
