How to get from Cabo de San Vicente to Lagos after sunset?

Hi,

we're gonna stay in Lagos and we'd like to go the famous sunset at Cape St. Vincent. There's no bus from Sagres after 7:30 PM. And sunset time for our dates is at 8:40 PM.

How to get a taxi from cape to Lagos? Is it possible?

No one of us has driver licence.

There are taxis in Sagres and Lagos so you can obtain taxi numbers before you head for Cape St Vincent. You already know that Cape St Vincent is 5km from Sagres and the only buses from Cape St Vincent leave there at 1155 and 1505 and that these do not run at weekends.

It is 40 km from Cape St Vincent to Lagos. A taxi will cost about 50 Euros.

i too am staying in lagos in september and want to do the same

am considering bus to sagres

either a taxi each way to the sunset which i assume will be approx 7.30pm

then evening meal in sagres and finally a taxi return to lagos

so my question is

are there organised trips to cabo sao vicente for the sunset or do you just have to make your own way ie taxi? and if so how much are they

or could i maybe get a half day taxi trip from lagos ie about 5pm to do the whole thing if so does anyone know how much?

thanks in advance as always

steve

Except by spending 50 or 60 Euros on a taxi back to Lagos, there is no way to do a sunset and return unless you use a car. Cape St Vincent is a pretty isolated place!

the cost isnt prohibitive i was just wondering based on peoples experiences the best way to do it

if need be instead of a taxi back i could even look at a hotel for the night and then bus back the next day
