getting from Meia Praia to the town centre

Hi I am staying on Meia Praia beach just about a 10 minute walk from the train station I believe whilst we have a car we will no doubt want to go into town to drink on a couple of evenings.

What is the best way to get from Meia Praia to Lagos in the evening, Im guessing we can just call a taxi to come and pick us up, however does the train run regularly enough to justify getting that, its a bit far to walk! :)

There is a bus to Lagos which as in previous summers will operate until around midnight.

Summer service staring this Monday 4th July

It starts from the little station at Meia Praia (Forte de Meia Praia) and goes right into town.

The Lagos railway station is a good ten minutes walk from the town centre.

I hope that helps.

Hi Thanks for the help

If we decide not to get the bus I presume we can just call for a taxi and they will come out to get us. We are staying at Quinta de Sao Roque

Thanks

Its the same old advice I guess arrange a price before you get in the taxi!
