Transfer from train station to hotel

by Leannl

My clients will be travelling from Malaga to Faro by train. They will need to get to their hotel in Faro from the station. Is there any transfers or busses?
They will be staying at the Auramar Beach CLub in Faro.

Re: Transfer from train station to hotel

by cubsur

Sorry but your clients will not be travelling by train from Malaga to Faro and the Auramar beach club is in Albufeira, about 2km from where I live and not in Faro.

Let me explain!

The rail networks of Spain and Portugal are not connected down in the south of the two countries. There is a large gap between the last Spanish station in Huelva and the first Portuguese station at Vila Real de Santo Antonio. The only cross border transport is by bus (coach).

Please take a look at this website page of mine

www.algarvebus.info/001.htm in which I and others have compiled as much information as we know about cross border travel in this region.

Auramar Beach Club in ALBUFEIRA is 40km from Faro. The area is well served by regional and local bus services. There is a railway station called Albufeira but it is some 6km from town. There are many private transfers available but if your clients reach Albufeira there are taxis available for the last few km to the resort.

If you require any further inforamtion please do ask.

Travel Tips for Faro

Storks

by HORSCHECK

I was very surprised to see so many storks nestling on various locations all around the busy city centre. You can spot them on most churches, all sorts of rooftops and even on lamp posts in the middle of a busy roundabout.
Faro's coastline with the Ria Formosa Lagoon seems to be a pardise for all sorts of birds.

Algarve is internationally...

by Chowke

Algarve is internationally known for it's beaches and it's coast line. While in visit you absolutely must go to a tourist information centre and buy a ticket to go on a cruise travel; some of this cruises offer you lunch in closed beaches, i.e., that have no access by land. Faro has a beatifull sand island with white sand and strong winds. If you bathe be sure to swim near the cost; sea is a bit wild around here.

Tiles - Azulejos

by HORSCHECK

Azulejos are colourful ceramic tiles which are very popular in Portugal for decoration puposes. You find them inside and outside of houses, public buildings and monuments.
They often show geometric designs or images. Azulejos were brought to Portugal by the Moors in the 8th century.

Touring the Ria Formosa Waterworld

by Ekaterinburg

Touring the Ria Formosa is quite an exciting feature of a trip to Faro. If you look at a map you will see that the city of Faro is seperated from the sea by an extensive area of lagoons, small islands and sandbanks. This nature reserve is actually a National Park and covers over 17,000 hectares. The main photo here was taken from the plane and gives some indication of how exotic it looks in certain parts.

On Sunday afternoon we took a boat trip sold to us by a smooth-talking salesman on the Marina outside our hotel. Along with a family of five we were the only passengers and it was quite an intimate and relaxed trip all round. The boat wound its way through channels and sand spits and we got the chance to observe loads of birds especially Egrets and Sandpipers (photos 2 & 5). The crew consisted of a guide who handed out binoculars to observe the wildlife with and a very laid back captain. So relaxed was he that he handed over the wheel to me and took himself off to sit down on a more comfortable seat. When I veered too far left or right he waved his hand in the appropriate direction. Even more amusing was on the return journey, when a little girl of about 9 with only one functioning eye took over.

Like I say, very relaxed indeed and great fun. The trip lasted for about two and a half hours and cost EUR 20 per person. A little on the expensive side maybe but the very comfortable boat and friendliness of the crew compensated. The company's website is below and their sales people are on The Marina every day.
