On holiday in Portugal.
Portugal is the most south-westerly country in Europe. Portugal is not located on the Mediterranean Sea like the other countries in the southern strip of Europe. Portugal is situated on the Atlantic Ocean. The air temperatures are as you would expect them to be in a warm or temperate Mediterranean climate. What you notice is that the seawater is cooler than that of the Mediterranean Sea and that Portugal has less to do with the heat that you can experience in summer in neighbouring Spain.
The climate in Portugal
Although Portugal, like Spain, is located on the Iberian Peninsula, it has a different climate. Portugal is generally cooler than Spain due to the cooler seawater of the Atlantic Ocean. The west of the country has a maritime climate and the south (the Algarve) a Mediterranean climate. The entire country except for the northern part has a Mediterranean climate, with warm dry summers and the north a temperate maritime climate, with cooler dry summers. Many Dutch tourists choose to book a holiday to cities like Porto or Lisbon, or to enjoy the sun in the Algarve. Those who are smart, book a car in Portugal to discover as much as possible of the country.
