You may have noticed the “Public Bikes” scattered across Vilamoura? These are operated by Inframoura and are an ideal way to beat the traffic in the summer. There are currently 37 stations and over 200 bikes covering the Vilamoura area with more stations on the way. They are a great example of Vilamoura ´s commitment to creating a “national quality of life reserve”. To use the bikes however, a card is required from Inframoura. These cards are only available to property owners here in Vilamoura. In some cases your hotel or accommodate on can provide a card for use.
