D - connection available on Saturdays leaves Lagoa at 1010. No connecting bus on Sundays and Holidays
E - on weekdays (MFO) bus runs through to Portimão.  Otherwise change buses in Lagoa, times here.
F - there is a bus from Portimão at 1020, due in Lagoa at 1040, but do not trust that as a connection. The bus before that is at 0955.

** buses start from and end at the Avenida Guanaré near the Repsol garage and the Largo do Dique. This is by the river and about 5 minutes walk from the actual city centre.
On the way into the centre of Portimão, the buses take a rather long route owing to the one-way system and stop at several places before getting to the terminus.
If you don't want a journey around town, get off at the first stop after the bridge, cross the road for the five minute walk into the actual centre. Map here.

On the way back to Lagoa etc they go directly out over the bridge, not stopping anywhere until on the other side at Parchal.

## - if you are tempted by the Praia do Carvalho, please read. Access to the beach is 150 steep steps down from the road (and of course 150 steps back up) and the last 20 of those are through a little tunnel bored through the rock.
The beach is entirely enclosed by cliffs; the steps are the only access except by boat!
There is some good walking along the cliffs and hills in the surrounding areas, although the going can be a little difficult in some places.
Finally, the area is quite isolated. There are no facilities at the beach and I saw none in the immediate vicinity, so take supplies with you!
