ADVICE

There is no direct service from the Old Town to Camping Albufeira. You can go the long way around via the Bus Terminal.
Alternatively, you can take the Linha Vermelha 2 from the Avenida Liberdade at 20 & 50 minutes past the hour,
get off at the first stop at the Centro de Saúde, cross the road to the opposite stop and pick up Linha Laranja there. Approx. 15 minutes wait.

TIMETABLE NOTES
¶ the stop is the one outside the entrance NOT the one on the main road.
Camping Albufeira is also served by the Linha Laranja that runs between Albufeira Bus Terminal, Ferreiras and the Albufeira Railway station.
Linha Laranja buses stop up on the main road.
+ stop is in the Avenida do Ténis just by the roundabout. According to both official maps buses do not stop here on the way to Páteo but I can assure you they do!
++ close to Merlin's Bar and Vila Recife; short walk down into old town centre.
§ - the stop is at the roundabout  at the bottom of the hill at the entrance to the industrial estate.
# ’Dolphins’ Roundabout, 200 metres/yards from Encosta da Orada.

Páteo, Cerro da Águia and Vale Santa Maria are also stops for the Albufeira - Guia - Messines buses. Times here.
