Default La Roca Beach Bar

Apologies if this isn't the correct place to post but I can't seem to find how to start a new thread. I was wondering when La Roca beach bar might re open? After Embat disappearing I am worrying this one may too! Please say I am worrying unnecessarily!

Also is it true that Kiki has left Swing? Thanks for any info

I am not sure if this is a permanent closure, the structure has been removed but the footings remain so it could return in the summer.

Thank you for your replies. My husband thought he saw something on FB too that was what started my question. I couldn't find any evidence of it. I do hope it is not true, with the play area and everything it really would be a shame. Loved the live music on a Saturday night too.

With the money that has been spent on the Llenaire end it would seem strange to get rid of all the beach bars and mean that people go further down the beach to sunbathe. Surely that would even affect the restaurants on the road..

I remember there was a story in the press last year about "chiringuitos" being removed from some areas of the island, i think it said that they could not be permanent fixtures but i can't find the story now.

Just to add to this- I think Embat might be back this year - they've said so in comments underneath their Facebook posts. Oh please let it be true - I was a big fan of these chiringuitos

prattyIG8 - if it's any help re your initial question, I looked back on Facebook feeds for both bars and La Roca seemed to be open from late Feb last year, whereas Embat didn't open till mid-late April in 2016 (which would be a shame for me cos I leave on the 14th!)

Re Beach bars

These are indeed strange times we live in. Compare all this closing of bars, tourist tax, removal of property rentals.

Then my mind goes back 45 years ago when I first set foot on this island. They were doing everything in their power to entice people here.

At the risk of sounding like a parrot, again I say to the few godfathers that are calling the shots, be careful , because as quick as the living standards of the good folk of Mallorca went into the stratosphere, so the opposite end of the spectrum can return.

You do not have a monopoly on tourist.

Thank you so much for the info, I am not out till May so hoping it will be there then. I don't usually worry too much about these things it is just that my husband thought he had seen something about it not re opening but seems that was wrong (thankfully)

I thought so, such a shame as he made that place for us. Hoping there will be someone just as good this year but he will be a loss. my children loved him.
