Sher wrote to me to say that was travelling from Albufeira on the Algarve in Portugal to Marbella on the Costa del Sol in Spain, staying for 2 weeks and then travelling back to Faro to leave for Canada. How could she do it by bus?
The way to check the schedule of buses from the Algarve to the Costa del Sol is as follows:
Check in on the Gomarbella online bus ticket booking engine.
Choose the International tap at the top and then details of your trip in reverse order like this:
1) Country Spain 2) Malaga for your departure
3) Country Portugal 4) Fuengirola for your arrival
On the way to Spain it will travel through the Estacion de Autobuses Plaza de Armas in Seville and then on to Malaga bus station finishing its journey in Fuengirola. From Fuengirola take the next bus to Marbella bus station. In summer the buses leave every half an hour.
For travellers making an onward journey to Lagos by train from Faro train station, the Faro bus station is only 200 metres away.
