For those who don’t enjoying driving whilst visiting another country, Vamus (the region’s bus provider) may well be your answer.
The company has introduced a new Algarve bus route that is ticking lots of boxes.
Eva Cliffs Line has been created with routes in mind for those who have no access to a car – offering an opportunity to enjoy parts of Algarve they may well miss.
A memorable route is from Alvor to Zoomarine (Guia), passing through often-missed spots such as Marinha beach, Praia da Rocha and Benagil, with its beautiful beach and the famous sinkhole (algar) cave.
Various types of tickets are available, depending on how travellers wish to use the service.
The most popular are the day ticket and tourist pass. The former is, as it suggests, for a 24-hour period and can be purchased on board, at main bus stations or at any EVAKiosk.
The tourist pass is valid for a three- or seven-day continuous period and can be bought at Vamus Algarve agencies, tourist offices and other ticket offices throughout the region. This ticket gives access to the entire network with no travel limit within the period of time bought.
Both allow passengers to hop on and off at will. For example, fancy walking some, or even all, of Lagoa’s Seven Hanging Valleys Trail (Percurso dos Sete Vales Suspensos de Lagoa)? Or perhaps you would like to walk from Ferragudo to Carvoeiro (or vice versa)? The new bus route will allow you to do either of these, getting you back home in time for your preferred beverage.
Wi-Fi and app
All buses have wi-fi on board so passengers can download the Vamus App and use it to look up information on the route they are taking. The app also means passengers can check real time timetables, information on different routes and also purchase digital tickets.
