Cheap shop for basics near hotel Artiem Capri, Mao??

Post by howardfh » August 27th, 2019, 8:32 pm

As soon as I arrive I will be looking for basics like a towel, suncream, maybe a parasol, flipflops; the usual touristy stuff. As the heading says, I'll be at the Capri which is near the Mao bus station. Looking to avoid the (more expensive!) touristy shops in town (or near the beach) so just wonder if there's a local's cheap shop that I can pop in to in that district?

Cheers

Sorry nobody has replied until now. You don't say whether you have transport etc, that will dictate many of the recommendations. In and around the Artiem and Mahon in general there are very few shops that sell things such as parasols - your best bet for everything would be the short trip to Hiper Centro where they sell everything you will need, all under one roof. If you don't have a car, you'd be best off with a taxi and you'd still save money.

I never thought about supermarkets. We have been racking our brain for the location of "Chinese bazaar" shops in Mahon and couldn't remember.

Not carrying all that gear it isn't - hop in a taxi.
