Hi. I am staying just round the corner from the Golf Academy and wondered how far away the strip and the Old Town are by walking and a rough idea of times. Where is the nearest beach from where I am.

Presumably that's the Gofl Academy at Brejos.

The old town and its beach is about 1 3/4 miles. The local GIRO Linha Azul (blue) bus will take you there for €1.40, every half hour every day. The Linha Verde (green) will bring you back but not quite to the same place. Brejos is on a hill overlooking town, so walking back it is uphill all the way.

The Strip is about a mile and a half and just beyond that is the beach at Praia da Oura, also about a mile and three-quarters. Again, the local buses will take you there and bring you back if you didn't fancy the walk.
