Taxi Number or bus connection  (2 Answers)

Hello,

Arriving in Portimao with the bus from Lisbon - Largo do Dique is where we get dropped off I believe.
We are staying at Oasis Parque - I see it is a bit of a bus terminal around there - I am so confused with the via dem bus timetable (route 36 or 21 or 11) cannot figure it out. SO if necessary and I don't see any taxis, what number would I call and will they understand English? Sorry to ask such basics but have tried to find answers first. Many thanks!

Hi there, I'm coming back to the Algarve in June for my 50th birthday celebrations. There are going to be 12 of us - all female. We're staying in a villa in Carvoeiro which I know very well. Usually there are only 2-4 of us so we either drive or get a taxi. However, this time I know it'll be harder to co-ordinate! We want to have dinner at the new restaurant at the harbour in Portimao one eve and another eve at Ferragudo - Club Nau. Any suggestions on transport please?

Ferragudo - anyone help please?  (1 Answer)

Hi, I couldn't find a ferragudo forum, so I thought I would try here! We're dithering about booking two weeks at Vitors Village complex in Ferragudo. We have a 2 year old son. I am trying to get my head around the location of it. Specifically, how far is to the nearest nice beach? The main beach (praia grande) looks really nice, but I can't tell if people swim there or not, with it appearing to be on the river.

Also, can anyone give me a true estimation of how long it would take to walk into the main village (square / harbour etc) from Vitors?

Many thanks in advance etc..
