The fast growth of Albufeira justified the creation of a local bus network, called Giro. It covers all the city now, with four different routes, identified by different colors.
If you decide to go a little further there are regional buses, being EVA the main company in Algarve.
Parking is a nightmare in Albufeira.
The best solution downtown is to use a small and dusty area east of the beach, and use the escalators nearby.
The problem is that, after the construction of the mechanic escalators, the park seems to be shrinking!
This was ten years ago – strong investment transformed the area, and now, a modern covered park has been created.
Practical… and paid, of course.
