Portimao - Alvor Mini Guide

The ancient village on the coast is located at the mouth of the river 'do Fareio' which used to service it well as a fishing village, so away from the larger busy resorts of The Algarve. Its economy is now largely based around the tourist industry and is a quiet village on the outskirts of Portimao.

How Do I Get There?
The nearest Airport is Portimao at around 1 mile to the north, so if you arrive into Portimao a local taxi or bus service can take you to your hotel or villa. However, being such a small airport, it is more likely that you will arrive in Faro as many of the budget airlines serve this airport. Booking a rental car from Faro Airport is a cost effective and simple way to get to Alvor, or you can take a transfer bus or taxi to Portimao and then a local bus to Alvor. Renting a car from within Alvor can offer great flexibility for those who need a car for a few days and not their entire stay.  Alternatively you could take the drive from Lagos.
