Shops and markets

Playa Albir is littered with supermarkets and shops for the daily necessities. If you really want to go shopping than is Benidorm the place to be. Especially on the Avda. Meditarineo you can find a lot of different kind of types of shops to bring the day to a perfect day. The old town of Benidorm is more pleasant to go shopping with his narrow alleys and little boutiques. 

A little bit outside Benidorm in Finestrat is the Marina Shopping Centre. This mall has two floors and on the roof are some nice attractions for the children and restaurants. Nearby this shopping centre is also the biggest department store of the district called Carrefour”.

The tourist markets at the Costa Blanca are extremely popular. The nearest market is the one from Altea on Tuesday. But also the market of Benidorm which is twice a week is easily accessible by bus (route 10). The most amusable markets are the jumble sale and antique markets in the neighbourhood. Nearby Albir is every Sunday an antique market on the property of the hacienda “El Cisne”.  A very nice market with live music and also possible to eat and drink against reasonable prices.
