    Thanks for the helpful information. We’ll stay 2 nights in Albufeira and then 4 in Praia de Rocha.
    I’m looking for specific instructions for getting from Albufeira to Praia De Rocha, and then from Praia De Rocha to Lisbon, using the train or bus. I realize i probably need a taxi from Portimao to Praia De Rocha.
    Thanks for any help.

      Hi Bev,

      Yep, you’re probably going to have to go from Albufeira to Portimão and then take a local bus or taxi onto Praia da Rocha.

      The train station in Albufeira is Albufeira – Ferreiras, which is a few km outside of Albufeira. The bus station isn’t completely central either, but your accommodation is likely to be closer to the bus station than the train station. It’s quite possible you’ll need a taxi to either, though, in which case it probably doesn’t matter whether you take the bus or the train. Both will go to Portimão, and then you’ll need to get separate transport down to Praia da Rocha.

      Getting to Lisbon should be easier. You can actually get a bus from Praia da Rocha to Lisbon (book at Alternatively, you can take a taxi or local bus to Portimão and then take the train from there (although there will be a chance at Tunes). Train tickets can be booked at
