      Ferry Boat travel between islands

      Azores Nov 6, 2016 at 9:36 AM

      My sister and I will be traveling to Terceira next August. We were hoping to be able to ferry between the islands. I have been researching the ferry websites (Atlantico); however, not as informative as I would like to ease my concern about catching a ferry between Terceira and Sao Miguel, Filal or Pico.

      Any way to get actual schedule on paper? Better to fly between the islands or is ferry travel reliable?

      Stay the whole week in Funchal, or not?

      Madeira Island Nov 6, 2016 at 12:43 AM

      I will visit Madeira for a week in April and during that week I would like to do several hikes. Is it good to base myself in Funchal and from there make daytrips with local transportation (bus) to places where I can start/end a hike, or should I base myself in another town/village for a few days?

    • 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?

    • Restaurant/Bar Terrace Recommendation

      by KieraOH Online Now Jul 30, 2015 at 10:12 PM

      Hi VTers, I'm finding it hard to research nice restaurants and bars to visit in Cascais. I'm looking for recommendations for a group of about 20 people to gather for a pre-wedding celebration. Ideally somewhere a little more upmarket without being crazy expensive and with a view for some food & nice drinks so maybe a terrace/patio/roof deck - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      My next question is that it will be midweek, early it typically quiet in this area midweek or still lively?

      Thanks in advance! K.

      We are considering a property near central Cascais for five nights in September, but it does not have parking. The owner says public parking is available all around the property. I'm a bit nervous about security and availability and cost too. Can someone please give me some advise? Thank you.

    • Cascais hotel suggestion?

      by x07afb Online Now Jul 5, 2011 at 2:33 PM

      My wife and I are planning a trip to Cascais for a couple of days as part of a trip to Portugal in September. I am trying to book a hotel in the area that will meet all of our needs. Particularly, could anyone recommend a hotel that is firmly situated close to the beach, but is also walking distance from a nice selection of restaurants? One hotel that I was looking at which looks quite nice is Hotel Cascais Miragem. The reviews are quite favourable, and I was just wondering if anyone in this group had any experiences there?

      Also, would it be possible to use Cascais as a base for Lisbon? If we enjoy the feel of Cascais, I’m thinking it might be nice to come back there in the evenings if we decide to make one or two daytrips to Lisbon. I’m just wondering if anyone else has tried this plan? Thanks in advance.

    • Life in Cascais for a Japanese-American Family

      by buckrodgers Online Now Sep 17, 2010 at 12:22 PM

      I was curious what life in Cascais might be like for a Japanese-American family (elderly mother, young grandson)?

      Are the people in this area quite tolerant, without any 'fringe groups' who may be condescending/hostile towards those of a different ethnic group? I've learned that while the majority of people are usually open-minded, it only takes a small group (e.g. xenophobes/skinheads) to ruin it.

      I've read that there are many tourists and a large ex-pat population here, so it sounds like a fairly relaxed, cosmopolitan area, but any thoughts/personal observations would be appreciated.

      I'd also appreciate any general observations on what life in Cascais is like for retirees.

      Thank you.
