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.

Unfortunately the bus from Alvor to Portimão doesn't go anywhere near either of the malls. That would be only £1.50.
