São Martinho do Porto to Carvoeiro, Algarve

The main problem with this route is that there is no easy long distance train or coach service that serves Carvoeiro. There is a local bus service that runs via Lagoa several times a day.

To drive would take:

Time: 03h41 including 03h16 on motorways
Distance: 372km including 354km on motorways

according to viamichelin.

Rail would be your best public transport option as it would be more comfortable.

Take a train to Portimão and then a taxi to Carvoeiro.

Schedule as follows:

12h52 São Martinho Do Porto
13h06 Caldas Da Rainha
13h39 Caldas Da Rainha
15h31 Mira Sintra-melecas
15h49 Mira Sintra-melecas
16h18 Lisboa - Entrecampos
17h30 Lisboa - Entrecampos
20h44 Tunes
20h58 Tunes
21h32 Portimão

Travel time: 8h40mins.

Taxi to Carvoeiro would take about 20 minutes at that time of night.
