Shopping and Leisure

Despite being mostly a beach tourist destination, Tavira undeniably exceeds the shopping and leisure needs of every visitor... Either you're looking for typical gastronomy pleasures, or you need some casual shopping that takes you back to your urban concrete addiction, you'll likely find what you need without much travelling around.

Tavira Gran Plaza Shopping Centre

Tavira Gran-Plaza is the first major shopping centre in East Algarve. The shopping centre facilities includes a supermarket, a lounge area, restaurants, cinemas, decoration and fashion stores, services and a low cost fuel station. As a shopping centre of proximity and convenience, it concentrates multiple services in one single place.

Tavira Municipal Market

The Mercado Municipal is the main market of Tavira, a newly rebuilt version of the Old Market, and it's both a tourist attraction and a very good place for grocery shopping. Here you'll be able to find the best delicacies, the freshest fish, seafood and meat, and the most delicious fruit you'll ever taste.

There is no website for the Municipal Market. Just walk there! You won't regret it.

Pingo Doce

Pingo Doce is a Portuguese supermarket chain (like SuperQuinn in Ireland, or Morrisons in UK). They have most groceries you'd expect, convenient hours (daily 9AM - 9PM), reasonable prices, and an excellent selection of beer and wine.
