The nearest town is Peniche, some 5miles/8km distant. Most of the local buses are operated by the Rodotejo company (www.rodotejo.pt) nd their website indicates there are about six buses each weekday to/from Peniche but no service at all on Saturdays and Sundays.

For the times etc go to www.rodotejo.pt and use the 'Pequisa Horarios' box on the left. Choose 'interurbanas' and for 'Origem' it's Praia da Consolacao' and 'Destino' Peniche. Make sure you click on 'Mais Informacoes' to get the full list and the PDF files will give the timetables for the different routes in a printable format.

The buses go through Peniche town centre before heading off to the bus station, which is on a bleak industrial estate some way out. Check where the bus stops for the return journey, as some of the stops are not all that obvious.

I trust that helps.
