Here is a picture of Lagos Bus Station at the end of the Algarve run. It's an open air bus station, just behind the Marina Rio Hotel in Lagos, which faces the Marina. Lots of restaurants with delicious fresh fish from the Atlantic and great Portuguese wines right next to the bus station. Check out the Marina Rio Hotel prices and if you can, treat yourself to your first night there. The Marina Rio Hotel is right to the Lagos bus station.
Lagos Bus Station
Below is a picture of a traveller waiting to get onto one of the Eva buses. You are looking at the back of the hotel in this picture. We stayed a night here at the Marina Rio Hotel next to the Lagos Bus Station and had an excellent experience. Don't catch any early buses out of Lagos if it means missing the breakfast at the hotel. Ask for the for the bacon and scrambled eggs. Take your time and enjoy your meal!
