A great way to get a boat ride and get to your destination. 7 Euros, per person,for return journey. You can go from Ferragudo to Portimao and over to the beach at Praia de Grande. Lovely comfy leather seats too!

The guy that steers this taxi is hilarious. We even got given blankets for the way back because it was so cold.

We needed to get across from portimao in a hurry and these guys were spot on, even calling ahead to the kayak firm to tell them to hang on. Dropped us right onto the beach and picked us up bang on time. Delighted.

Sorry, we are back home now, but from memory taxi ferry was working Ferragudo / Portimao port / Portimao marina / Praia Grande. Two vessels working on busier days, about every 10 minutes.
