Shopping in Albufeira

Hi

I am just wondering is there any good shopping malls or centres in Albufeira. I am not much of a sunbather as I don't take the sun very well. So was looking for something to do during the day if you have any other suggestions that would be great. But even a shopping centre in another resort that would be easy to get to?

Thanks in advance.

There is a big mall about 4 miles out of town called Algarve Shopping. It's not easy to get to by bus but a taxi will cost you only about 8 Euros. There's a cinema there (most films are shown in English) and a 10-pin bowling alley.

There about 100 shops, food court etc. Next door is a retail park with various other shops.

What buses there are go from the main Albufeira bus station, which is quite a long way from the main resort area. I have details at this page

In Albufeira itself there are of course a few shops in the old town and a small shopping centre called Albufeira shopping, near McDonalds on the main road and others nearby.

Aqua Portimao is a new mall, quite a way from Albufeira but there could be a ticket shop that organises trips there. There is a web site for it you will have to do a search on google, I think some one did put the web address on here a few weeks ago. There are also plenty of markets to visit ticket shops can arrange coach transfers.

if you fancied a bit further and for more exploration you could go to either Forum Algarve in Faro or Ria Shopping in Olhao, would be a nice day out to go to Olhao, with dinner or lunch down at the waterfront and shopping, lovely old style town.
