Taxi Ferry to Portimão
From the quayside of Ferragudo, take a journey across the expansive Rio Arade to the bustling city of Portimão. Across the river, the port city of Portimão, commercial hub of the western Algarve, sits proud and assured of its maritime history. The ferry costs less than 10€ and with excellent shopping facilities and an abundance of restaurants, it is well worth a visit. Try the traditional seafood restaurants around the cobbled streets of the Rua da Barca in particular.
The city has an old fishing port built around a once bustling fishing industry, now transformed with a pleasant promenade that leads to the quaint, tree-lined squares of the old town.
If you're in search of a beach near Portimão, Praia da Rocha is 3km south of the city and is the best and very attractive beach.
