Handpicked by a Algarve Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Best Winter Sun Beach Restaurants'.

Fabulous winter dining by the sea in the Algarve! Winters in the Algarve are often mild, sunny and gorgeous - perfect for enjoying lazy meals by the sea. Enjoy the warmth of sunshine on your shoulders and the murmur of waves on the shore while sampling some delicious food and sipping a few glasses of local wine at restaurants that are open all-year-round.

Summer in the Algarve undoubtedly has its charms. However, off-season life in Portugal’s southern region has its own pleasures to offer, such as long walks on almost empty beaches, mild sunshine, and a less frantic pace.

While some restaurants and bars close in the low season, many beachside eateries are open all year round and offer super seaview dining. Even on colder or stormy days, you can enjoy the fabulous views of winter beach scenes from the cosy interiors, protected by the panoramic windows.
