Porto de Phuket Mall in Bangtao Beach
Porto de Phuket is a new open-air community mall near Bangtao Beach in Cherngtalay district, just next to the very popular Boat Avenue.
A community mall in Bangtao Beach
It’s of the same brand as Central Phuket and Central Patong, and you will therefore recognise some of the typical shops, but the concept here is a little different, so don’t expect to find a multi-storey shopping mall.
Porto de Phuket occupies a vast land in a strategic location at the entrance of Laguna Phuket. The mall targets the residents of the many condominiums, apartments and luxury villas that are booming in the area. It consists only of one storey shops, restaurants and a huge supermarket, competing directly with the long-established Boat Avenue next door.
Shopping at Porto de Phuket
Central Food Hall supermarket is probably the most impressive outlet in the mall. It covers an immense surface and displays an incredible array of goods, locals or import, including an extensive wine cellar. If you choose to live in the Bangtao area, you are now spoiled with choices between the Central Food Hall and Villa Market next door.
As usual in any Central, you will find a large SuperSport shop selling as you can expect all the sports gears and equipment you can dream of: shoes, swimwear, sports brand clothing, tennis, golf and fitness equipment. Next to it, B2S sells books, toys and stationery.
