Lisbon - Carvoeiro


There are no public transport systems that link Lisbon directly with Carvoeiro in the Algarve.

Essentially, you have two options:

1) Rail

Train from Lisbon Gare Oriente or Entrecampos stations to Portimão (change at Tunes Junction) and then taxi.

2) Long Distance Coach

Both EVA Transportes and Renex operate long distance coach services from Lisbon to Lagoa.

From Lagoa one can get a taxi to Carvoeiro.

For timetables, go to my blog at:

There are buses from both Portimão and Lagoa to Carvoeiro. However, in Portimão the bus terminus is a long way from the station and major bridge works are delaying traffic substantially at present. That is why I recommend taxi.
