Vilamoura to Lisbon

The nearest train station to Vilamoura is Loulé Station. Trains from Faro to Lisbon stop there. However, it is about 15 mins by car/taxi from Vilamoura. There is no direct bus service. One would have to go to Quarteira Bus Station and then get one of the hourly buses to Loulé 4 Estradas.

Alternatively you could get a bus from Vilamoura to Faro.. first service is at 08:00. This takes 40 mins.

Personally, I would recommend that you avoid all this hassle and take a bus. There are three companies operating the route

1) Eva Transportes - operates to Lisbon Sete Rios Bus Station

I have uploaded the timetable in pdf format here:

2) RENEX - Operates to Lisbon Gare Oriente Bus Station

If you go to my blog at:

Scroll down on the right hand panel until you come to the section entitled:

You will find a link to the Renex Bus Timetable entitled:

Click on it and you will be able to download the timetable in pdf format.

3) - operates to Lisbon Sete Rios Bus Station

National Bus Company. Operates some services in co-operation with EVA.

Returning to Faro you could also consider the train.
