Easter is early next year so there will be quite a lot of places open from that weekend onwards. April weather is a touch unpredictable inasmuch as 'April Showers' is as applicable to the Algarve as it is to Cheshire.

The good thing is that if it does rain it will be fairly warm rain, with average temperatures in the mid to high 60's F (18 - 20C) and it's often hotter than that.

It's still fairly cool at night, relatively so, maybe low to mid 50's or 10 - 13 C.

Late April and you have the advantage of witnessing the Algarve in the Spring with its blooming flora that you wouldn't see at other times of the year.

We were in Alvor in April this year and the first 2 weeks were exceptional .. high 70s - 80 , then the second half was very patchy .. temps down to normal and several heavy showers . Take your chances and you could be lucky .

Yes most places are open-certainly all bars and restaurants. The weather in April is generally good, but sometimes there are storms-which are nasty! It really is just luck, weather in april in the algarve is a hit or a miss.

Good Luck!
