stayed in Albufiera a ffew years ago never been back to Algarve , my wife likes shopping are there many shops here or apart from Albufiera where has the most shops.
Do have a look at the top questions (to the right) "Algarve Shopping Malls".
Aqua shopping centre in Portimao is the nearest to Alvor , about 4 miles . It opened about 3 years ago and has around 120 shops . There is a large food court and some entertainment . If you are in Alvor there would be no need to go further afield to visit any others .
Second what fawlboy says, the centre in Portmao last time we visited was about 5 mins drive from the outskirts of Alvor.
Haven't had a car for the last 3 trips so we haven't been recently but it does have a good variety of shops.
Does anyone know roughly what a taxi would be from Alvor to the shopping centre in Portimao please?
It cost €8 from taxi rank in Alvor to Aqua Centre last year.
Unfortunately the bus from Alvor to Portimão doesn't go anywhere near either of the malls. That would be only £1.50.
Fab thank you :-) looking forward to exploring the algarve.
