      10 Day Trip - Algarve & Seville

      Algarve Dec 22, 2016 at 9:20 AM

      My wife and I are spending 10 days in the Algarve area next April. We fly in and out of Faro and will be picking up and dropping off our hire car in that location. I'm thinking of staying in three or four different locations and would like to do a circular tour in our hire car. It seems sensible to take in Seville. Any ideas for towns where a couple of nights would be a pleasant experience? Our interests are history, culture and moderate walking. Phil C

    • Walk from algar seco to....

      Lagos Nov 6, 2016 at 2:55 AM

      Hi. I will be in Faro and Portugal for first time since 30.11 till 3.12. I would like to visit Algarve probably on Friday 2nd December. I was thinking to take morning train to Lagoa, and then bus to Carvoeiro. (I think I will be in Carvoeiro before 11am according to buses). I wanted to do daylight walk along the coast from algar seco, through benagil, and praia marinha. Because I don't have idea about distances, how far it is , and could I continue my walk yet further to see another beaches too? Do I have to return to lagoa or can I take return bus/train from yet another town to come back to faro? Maybe anyone of you are going to have a walk that day too?

    • Transportation Lagos-Armacao de Pera-Faro

      Algarve Sep 13, 2016 at 4:42 AM

      Hi! Is there an official website with info about the buses around Algarve or should I trust this one?
      I am worried that if it isn't correct and we miss our bus to Faro, there is no alternate transportation from Armacao de Pera. Also, after our boat trip from there, we want to get to Praia da Marinha, can we get a taxi to there and would it be expensive? Can you reccommend a company I can use with a safe mind? In general, transportation without a car seems kinda complicated....

    • 5 days too much for a solo traveller?

      Lagos Sep 5, 2016 at 5:33 AM

      I'm planning to visit Lagos in December. I'm travelling alone and I don't go out to night clubs or bars.
      I want to go to Lagos and Algarve just to see the beautiful scenery. Now i'm wondering if 5 days might be too much?
      I know it can be quite chilly and rainy so I can't just spend the days laying on the beach.
      I won't have a car, I will walk and take the bus so I believe I will be kinda limited regarding how far away from the center I can go.
      What do you think? Will I get bored?

    • Looking for a long beach with hard sand to walk on in Albufeira

      Albufeira May 14, 2016 at 2:15 PM

      Can anyone tell me if Praia dos Pescadores is a good beach to walk on? We've walked on Falesia beach and the hard sand is fabulous to walk on but many other beaches in the area, while fabulous, have soft sand and therefore, are not good for walking on. I thought Praia dos Pescadores might have enough hard sand along the sea-edge for us to walk its length. How long is it actually? If not this one, any other suggestions close by. Many thanks in advance for any advice you can offer. Cheers, John (only joined VT this minute!)
