Buses, Trains and Taxis
The Algarve offers a limited network of bus and train routes. Both depart from Faro city (not the airport) to Lagos where you can catch a connecting bus or taxi to Praia da Luz (around 10 minutes). Taxis are more plentiful in the region but it is recommended to pre-book a transfer or car hire before arrival.

All taxis operate from official taxi ranks and you cannot flag down on the street. You can call one and agree a pick-up point
They are reasonably priced and tips are customary. Praia da Luz to Lagos is around 12€ to the taxi rank
There is a Taxi rank at the bus stop at the Church square. Ask the approximate cost before getting into the taxi!
Ordering a taxi in advance is advisable as they are busy in summer and limited in winter from the rank. If it is a Lagos company they will charge you to come from Lagos!
