BUSES, TRAINS AND TAXIS
Public transport in the Algarve
Buses, Trains and Taxis
The Algarve offers a limited network of bus and train routes. Trains 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). Buses run from the airport to Lagos in high season only. Taxis are more plentiful in the region but it is recommended to pre-book a transfer or car hire before arrival.
