HELP! How to get from Faro, Portugal to Gibraltar?

Looking for the best advice on transportation from Faro to Gibraltar. Hoping for less time travling as possible. I have found bus/train routes to Seville, Spain but very time consuming. I can't find any information on ferries. What is the fastest/ cheapest route.. Any suggestions?

Cheers, from a struggling canadian traveller!

There are no ferries from the Algarve to Gibraltar. There are no trains between the Algarve and Spain. The nearest train would be Huelva in Spain. You may as well take the bus from Faro to Seville and then switch for a bus to Gibraltar. Time consuming indeed.

The only alternative is a flight from Faro to London and then to Gibraltar (British Airlines).

The suggestion above is the only way to get to Gibraltar from this region, other than that there is also a bus operated by ALSA from Faro to Seville at 0130am every night also during the afternoon on certain days of the week. Times and tickets at www.alsa.es

There are only three trains a day between Huelva and Seville, so once on the bus at Faro it makes sense to stay on board all the way to Seville.

There is no practicable rail route between Seville and La Linea.

There are no buses across the border between Gibraltar and Spain. You have to walk from the bus terminal in La Linea across the border (which is actually a walk across the Gibraltar airport runway!) then once on the Gibraltar side take a local bus or taxi into the town proper.

The trip will basically take all day.
