Praia da Rocha is a coastline resort town around 3 km from Portimao. It offers a classic beach holiday with plenty of activities and bustling nightlife. The city is situated above one of the finest beaches in Algarve with golden sands and crystal clear waters. Its diverse selection of attractions, entertainment and dining opportunities makes it suitable for all ages.
The closest international airport to Praia da Rocha is Faro Airport which serves the Algarve region. It's located 70 km east of the town and offers limited public transportation options. The nearest train station is in Portimao, so you will need to combine two buses and a train journey. The whole trip is very time-consuming and not a great way to start your holiday.
To avoid the hassle of changing buses and trains, many tourists prefer taking an airport taxi or book a private Faro airport transfer in advance. Local taxis are available at the designated ranks outside the airport, but they charge by the meter with surcharges for night and weekend transfers. Therefore, it's better to book your taxi from Faro Airport to Praia da Rocha in advance. It's a door-to-door service with a professional driver, without hidden fees.
Local Faro taxis offer reliable and fast airport transfers to Praia da Rocha. They will take you directly to the doorsteps of your hotel without worrying about timetables and catching the right bus or train. After you've cleared customs, follow the taxi signs, and you will easily find the taxi ranks. In summer, the airport gets busy, so finding a taxi can be challenging.
The taxi service is charged by the meter, so you don't know the cost upfront. The final price includes a base fee and a cost per km, and during the night and weekends, there's a 20% increase in the total fare. Under normal conditions, the taxi fare ranges between €80-€100.
Travelling by train is a faster way to arrive in Praia da Rocha than the bus. However, railway connection is available only between Faro Town and Portimao, so you will need to arrange additional transport from the airport to Faro and then from Portimao to Praia da Rocha. The train ride takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes, but the total trip takes significantly longer.
Bus line 16 can take you from the airport to Faro town and the ticket costs €2.35. Afterwards, walk to the train station (200 metres from the bus station) and take the train to Portimao. A single train ticket costs €6.10 and you should purchase it before you board the train. Once you arrive in Portimao, take a bus or a taxi to Praia da Rocha.
