A shopping mall is a concentrated series of shops, waiting for the costumers to pass by. "Boa Viagem" beach is just the opposite : a series of moving shops, passing by the costumers.
One day, I decided to note everything they were selling. I quickly gave up, and decided to note what they were NOT selling in the beach. There's the exhaustive list:
I really can't remember anything else not sold in the beach!
More than 500 shops, with all kind of articles, from food and beverage to witchery will, for sure, have what you need.
If you are not buying, a stroll along its corridors and stalls is something you shouldn't miss.
What to buy: Anything you need
What to pay: Not much, if you can be taken as a Brazilian...
An old detention house, closed in 1973, was transformed under Brennand's supervision, in a shopping mall. The architecture was preserved, and the cells were occupied by dozens or small shops, selling local crafts.
Together with "Feirinha", in Boa Viagem Beach, this is one of the best places to buy handicrafts, with the shops side-by-side in an open and fair competition
A popular market of local crafts takes place each Saturday and Sunday from 4 PM to 19PM in Boa Viagem square.
It's a good solution for those staying in the beach and not wanting to go to town to buy souvenirs, but I didn't check the prices.
