It's about 6.5 miles. Olhos D'Agua is 4 miles or so east of Albufeira old town, São Rafael beach is a couple of miles and a bit to the west of the old town. 11km or thereabouts.

Taxi will be around €12 weekdays, getting on for €15 at weekends.

It's possible by bus, just about, for £4,40, a change of bus and separate ticket is needed at Albufeira bus station and a bit of a walk from the bus stop at São Rafael down to the beach and of course back up again.

Bus times Olhos DÁgua - Albufeira www.algarvebus.info/002w.htm

Albufeira - São Rafael www.algarvebus.info/030.htm

Sunday service to São Rafael ends on 29th September.

I hope that helps.
