on the lower level, unit 1 or 2 (next door but one to Sharkys) a decent size Spar supermarket opened a few months ago.



Well I missed that one, very good to know. Must have been fairly recently. I will check it out myself asap.

It does seem like more people are moving in down there, so all being well it won't be a summer venue.

We treat it as an unfound corner of Albufeira, it’s a great atmosphere down there and we love the lounger bars for a drink and people watching. We always knew that it would only grow in time so that’s good for the vendors.
It’s really following what happened at Vilamoura, that took about 15 years to get established.

Updated the information in first post following a walk around 11th May. A few changes, some coming and goings. Of most use to people will be the new MEU SUPER(market) on the road level.

A new 'daring ride' is under construction down by the water.

Sharky's was busy, a load of p***heads in there. The neighbouring Deck 51 Club and Lounge has closed down. Mostly unchanged down there.

I shall be watching out of my window with some interest. The people in those nice houses up on the hill are just going love years of dust and noise.

I see ‘Fat Cats at the Marina’ are advertising for staff.

I take it this is a new bar opening up at the Marina by the ever popular Fats Cats bar near the worms roundabout.

Confirming the above, Fat Cats at the marina is open.

May 2019 update restored at post number 1. Only a few changes since last year. The bungee jump has gone.

Checked out the marina earlier. Not quite everywhere is open. I noted that Pipa's, Contramestre, Café Gazzetto, gate 4 and My café were all  closed, with no sign when or if they might re-open.

I have updated the first post in this topic to show the situation as it stands.

All the children's rides, segways, mini karts etc are not available.

Most of the boat trips are not operating. All the kiosks were closed except for wishndfish and Xride. I did spot one small boat going out, only about half full and everyone wearing masks. Something to bear in mind if you plan on such activity later this year.



And a big shiny new boat awaiting customers.

These strange craft are now moored at the marina, down at the SPAR end. The flag says The Houseboat Company.

   

Meanwhile the marina as a whole is still very quiet. A few boat trips are running but most boats are still laid up. The places like Pipa's that I reported as closed a few days ago are still closed.

Strange houseboats.  More like a shed on a couple of canoes.  And where will they go with those outboard motors?  They appear to have next to no draught so they'll wallow like the devil in lively water.
Interesting tbough. Thanks for the photo's.

The Ten Pin bowling alley is open again. Obviously strict rules about numbers, wearing masks etc but prices are lower than they were. One game €5 per person, two games €7,50.

The places I marked as not open a while back remain closed.
