Note 1 - The earlier bus may not wait for the train, so expect 29 minutes wait at the station. The summer Saturday 1129 train arrival will also not connect with the 1130 bus! Next bus is 1200 noon.
Note 2 - The train at 1544 runs on SATURDAYS ONLY, 16th July to 27th August.
Note 3 - I would not take a chance on the next bus. It arrives only 3 or 4 minutes before the trains are due to leave. You would not have time to buy a train ticket.
Note 4 - the bus may not wait if the train is late. Next bus is 30 minutes later.
Note 5 - there is a bus into Albufeira at 2130 from 1st June to 30th September; otherwise the last bus is at 2100.

THE CONNECTIONS BELOW ARE NOT VERY USEFUL. HEADING TOWARDS ALBUFEIRA, YOU HAVE TO CROSS THE ROAD AT CAMPING ALBUFEIRA TO THE BUS STOP IN FRONT OF THE MAIN ENTRANCE.
THE GIRO 1 BUS TOWARDS TOWN DOES NOT WAIT FOR THE LINHA LARANJA BUS AND YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT 25 MINUTES.
COMING FROM TOWN, IF THE GIRO 2 IS USED THERE IS A WAIT AT THE CENTRO SAUDE OF ABOUT 15 MINUTES FOR THE LINHA LARANJA.
IF IT'S A NICE DAY USE THE FOOTPATH AS SHOWN.
