There is only one Faro airport in Portugal (AFAIK) - the differences in the timetable is between Faro airport and Faro city centro (bus station).
Note: unusually there is not a airport shuttle bus into Faro centro but there is a regular bus service.

The page you will find most useful is:
Travel options between the Algarve and Spain by bus or train

If you want to go by airport transfer then this looks like a good option. Have often seen the Hoppa buses buzzing around:

Sorry that thread by Jur is really old and out of date. There is no boot sale anymore and most of the other info is no longer correct.

Hi ,

Haven't been to Isla Canela for some years and considering a visit in November. Am I correct that the daytime weather should still be pleasant ? Is the resort still relatively quiet , but with enough bars /restaurants to get by ? Thanks .

The weather should be ok.

It could be quiet on the bar front though. Sugar reef would be open and Sonrisa. A lot depends if the hotels stay open

The town is open 52 weeks a year mind, numerous choice of restaurants there, also other beach bars like Playa Alta, Bombadil, Cabras.
Hotels will be shut probably, like the last few years.
