Once you land it is recommended to hire a car. The prices vary depending on the time of year but bargains are always available if you look hard enough. We use Auto Europe and find them very helpful and attractively priced. They act as a broker and get great discounts with Avis, Europcar etc. If you want full collision damage waiver with no excess then you get a much better deal arranging it as part of the package. Let us know if you have any recommendations!

Hiring a car lets you easily explore the little coves and beaches in the area, travel out to a wider variety of towns, like Portimao and Silves not to mention to the Golf courses.

However, if you don't want to drive then airport transfers can be arranged, we recommend at €50.50 each way. The facilities atRochaBrava will provide you with most of your needs for a relaxing holiday. The site have a mini-bus that will take you into Carvoeiro each day, a timetable is available from the reception.
