Silves and Lagos

We will be staying in Carvoeiro in a few weeks and we would like to know how easy (or difficult) it is to visit Silves and Lagos -without a car as I want a rest from driving.

Not too difficult. There are local buses between Carvoeiro and Lagoa, about 10 minutes away. From Lagoa there are direct buses to both Silves and Lagos. The buses are not timed to connect with one another, so it might be more convenient to use a taxi between Carvoeiro and Lagoa especially coming back. There is a taxi rank at Lagoa's little bus station.

Timetables In English : Carvoeiro - Lagoa and VV, www.algarvebus.info/031.htm

Lagoa - Silves and vv www.algarvebus.info/008.htm

Lagoa - Lagos and vv www.algarvebus.info/002s.htm

If you change buses at Lagoa in either direction allow enough time to buy your next ticket inside at the ticket office window. On Sundays it's closed so pay the bus driver as normal.

I hope that helps.
