I was at the Go Kart track yesterday in the Marina and Sandy who runs it has informed me that the owners of the track have taken over a couple of the vacant units and are building a 10 Pin Bowling Alley. it is due for finishing mid January and will be up and running for the start of February. I always enjoy a bit of track time and love the bowling so that will be me sorted for a few hours on my return in 8 weeks or so!!

Sounds good to me! I enjoyed a couple of visits to the bowling at Algarve Shopping before it closed down.

The marina is only 10 minutes walk for me, so a trip is well on the cards.

Thanks for the information.

If you buy a skateboard ..... You'll be there in two minutes as it's all down hill from your spot!! On the way back just hold on to the back of the bus for a tug up the hill! Quite looking forward to the bowling alley myself.

There might be something on their website at http://algarvekarting.com/ or you can contact them - I cannot get the site to open.

I've not heard anything locally.

When we were there over Christmas, there was a bowling alley open at the place that hired out the segweys and kids quadbikes.

It only had two lanes I think though.

I spoke to the man who was putting all the bikes out and he said that they opened from around 11.30am so long as it wasn't raining.

Various people were working but I certainly saw nothing to tell me if or when it is open.

I spoke to the lady in the go-karting track just before Christmas, and she said it was opening in Jan..... or Feb - typical Portuguese time scales :-)

Spoke to English builder on site today - will be 9 lanes of bowling including 2 lanes slightly to one side for private parties. They are hoping to complete build late February/March but then have to obtain licences before they can open. Hoping to be around Easter but this is Portugal!
