Day trips from Albufera


Myself and my husband are heading to Albufera 14/8/7. We are looking for Day trip ideas, albeit we are not hiring a car. We would love to visit fatima but are unsure if this is possible by public transport and journey time.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Try heading inland up the mountains to Monchique, it's beautiful.

I'll just throw in that Fatima is to the north of Lisbon (more than 200 miles from Albufeira) and a day trip by public transportation, although not impossible, is not easy!

The journey requires a change in Lsbon and takes 5 hours. You would have to leave at the crack of dawn to get there by noon. Then to get back by leaving at 5pm you wouldn't be in Albufeira until 1030 or 11 o'clock. Cost would be €38 for the rouund-trip.

Places of interest you can get to on the bus from Albufeira include Silves, Lagos, Portimao and Tavira.

I have a website www.algarvebus.info where you can find bus and train details for the Algarve.

You will be pleased to know that buses and trains down here are much less expensive than in most of the UK.

Hope that helps.
