what to do in Albufeira with a 10 year old boy?????

Hi all

Have been reading posts for last week and has been really helpful We are in Albufeira mid April - never been there before. Has anybody got any comments or advice about what there is to do locally with a 10 yr old? Going to do water park and probably quad biking - but any other suggestions greatly received.

Thank you.

If it's a rainy day (quite possible) there is a 10 pjn bowling alley at the Algarve Shopping mall, about 4 miles out of town. There's a 9 screen cinema there as well and most of the films are shown in English (or whatever the original language might be) except for kids cartoons for example.

You might find that some of the boat trips are operating out of the marina, but a lot will depend on the weather and the sate of the sea at that time of year. They obviously won't go out if the sea is too rough.

You might find it is beach weather.

There aren't any amusement arcades as such, but some of the bigger 'family' bars in the newer areas of town have play areas attached.

Hi cubser

Thank you for your reply - nice to know where a few things are. He is an easily pleased young lad and I am sure that he will be happy to look around and just enjoy exploring with us - but just to know where things like a bowling alley and cinema are in case of wet weather is great. Looking forward to visiting Albufeira, it sounds lovely.

Thanks again
