Shopping: more local stores, fewer consumption temples
You will find essential items and daily fresh local produce in the small supermercado at the centre of Salema. Wonderfully fresh fish can be purchased directly on the beach – in the hall that the fishermen bring their catch to every day for weighing and loading.
There is a larger Intermarché in Budens with a petrol station and original public launderette. In Vila do Bispo (approx. 5 km from Salema) is a large Lidl supermarket with bakery. As the nearest larger town, Lagos has several big supermarkets, along with countless little shops in its charming old town. There is also a hospital for emergencies.
