It has been a while since I was in PdR but there was a small supermarket right across the street on the corner.

That's about all there is there. The big (cheaper) stores eg Continente and LIDL are about a mile away on the edge of Portimão, along the main road.

Thank you for your quick responce,looks like a trip to Aldi then if it's cheaper.

If it's only a mile I could walk there and taxi back.

Thanks.

ALDI is a tad further than the other two but in the same general area. Aim for the McDonald's and you are there. I think there is a taxi rank at Continente but don't quote me on that. i don't go there often as I live in Albufeira. Otherwise, take a taxi number from hotel reception.

There are no buses of any use to you.

If you're going to spend your money on taxis for shopping, you may as well shop with the little supermarket on the corner.

You have a valid point FTHW,I was thinking of one big shop,not backwards and forwards every other day.

Info about local buses at PDR and Portimão www.algarvebus.info/011.htm

Most of the routes do not operate at all at weekends and most don't go near the shopping centres.

There is a taxi rank outside the Continente worth going just to look at all the different things on offer and the wine is cheap!!!!!!!!!!!!!
