Various Portuguese journals have reported in the past few days that Transol, a bus company based in the Western Algarve has launched Portugal's first "Surf-Bus", with the objective of linking centres like Portimao and Lagos with the region's famous surfing beaches on the West Coast.
Until now, it has been difficult for surfers to reach beaches like Praia de Amado without having a car or cadging a ride with a surf school etc.
This service will operate between 8th April, 2014 and 31st October, 2014.
The bus will leave Portimão daily at 08:40, calling to collect passengers in Praia da Rocha, Alvor, Lagos, Praia da Luz, Campismo de Espiche, and then proceeding directly to Praia de Amado, the Surfing Mecca of Portugal's south coast.
