things to do with two fifteen year old girls/shops/surfing?

Hi. We are heading to Lagos on Sunday. We were there for only a week two years ago but are staying two weeks this time. Our daughters will both be coming up to fifteen. We are staying at the Marina Club and have just found out elsewhere on this forum that things have changed quite a bit since we were there and that our favourite restaurant, Do Cais, on the marina has now gone amongst other things. I'm now a little nervous. Has anyone any suggestions on where to eat? Also, what towns are best if we wanted to go for a day shopping with the girls - looking for some sort of shopping centre. Should we be looking to go to Portimao, Guia, Faro or Albufeira or somewhere else? Finally, does anyone recommend any of the surfing schools for them given that they have never surfed before and one is extremely shy?

Give or take the odd restaurant closing down Lagos hasn't noticeably changed since you were there, you'll be pleased to know.

Oh that is a massive relief!! Many thanks for that. I have really been worried that we may be entering a ghost town for two weeks!!! We will just have to find some new favourite restaurants. By any chance, would you happen to know if Bar Linda is still open or if there is any restaurant open at that end of Meia Praia beach?

For mall type shopping head for Aqua Shopping in Portimão. Website is http://www.aquaportimao.pt and has an English version.

Address : Rua de São Pedro, nº 72 Portimão there's a map on the website.Not easy to get to by bus as it is outside the centre of town and the bus from Lagos does not go within half a mile.

Open every day until 11pm.

Lots of small shops in Lagos of course and there are a number still in the pedestrian zone in the centre of Portimão.
