Dunas, Quinta Shopping, Quinta do Lago.
Dunas is a superb combination of ambience, scent, touch and sparkle. The brainchild of Judy & Simon Clayton, who after years of international globetrotting have settled in the Algarve and opened a shop full of the things they wanted to buy. It works. Dunas gives you inspiration for your home, your lifestyle and your own personal fashion.
Everything is hand-picked from some of the world's most distinctive, unique and stylish designers. Judy has a natural talent for showcasing her products, and a trip to the shops in Quinta Shopping is a veritable 'mooch' through heavenly scents, beachwear that floats and sparkles, and al-fresco lifestyle ideas to light up your summer evenings. Gifts for you and your friends, and beautiful ideas to enhance and enlighten your home.

The inspirational bit
This has to be one the best shops to spend time browsing and buying!

The beach wear is fantastic, with swimwear, elegant cover-ups, hats, jewellery, shoes, bags and sunglasses that you will not find anywhere else in the Algarve.
