Default Is the port busy

Hi looking at the web cams pp looks great and the weather looks wonderful but it looks awfully quiet hardly anyone on the beach or walking around. Does it seem quieter ? Are there many people about ?

What a shame. Especially considering how vibrant it was over Easter

I always think that the last week in May marks the beginning of the peak season, with the area becoming noticably busier by the day.

Traditionally the end of May has had some amazing weather, but last year it was unusually wet, and I wonder if some of our usual May visitors have left it until a little later in the season to arrive?

Sitting in that well loved watering hole on the corner of the square last night, we remarked how the place almost emptied at around 9pm. Appearances seem to indicate that there are folk about during the day but not too many stay out later in the evening.

We experienced the same when over at end March during the day at pine walk area relatively busy however at night not a soul around twice we were the only people in a restaurant which we found makes for lack of atmosphere.

Still a bit early in the season, but not everybody's skint these days, if there's one thing i'll always do is enjoy myself on holiday, I'll budget for the rest of the year at home. Lifes to short! I,ve no doubt it's very difficult for families, I've been there, but there's loads of "silver pound" tourists visit PP, come on, relax, get spending! (No offence to anyone who's a bit short of the readies).

As Smiddy says it is very early in the season, I'm sure there is always a 'bit of a lull' after Easter until the late May Bank Hol' / School Hol's, then it is into June and the (usually) more settled weather.
Mark my word, I'm sure it will get much busier in the next few weeks.....
Though I might be proved wrong!

It's a shame it is quiet as there are so many great last minute offers on the villa company websites,

Puerto Pollensa, Mallorca Majorca Holidays - Travel Companies

Have a look on Sealand villas and villa plus etc for this Saturday
villa plus £319+ for a week or £500+ with car at sealand

By booking well ahead last year for this coming weekend we paid more than double
I might play the waiting game next year and do something last minute...

Know what you mean, Mark. Thought about it several times, but always bottled out in the end. We've travelled with Sealand for the last 8/9 yrs. Yes, they are not the cheapest, but you do get what you're after. But at the end of the day i'd be kicking myself if I missed out by not booking well in advance. After all, there'd be nothing to look forward to through those long, cold winter months!

Thought it was quiet about the port at night myself.

Not too many people on the beach probably due to the disgusting state of the shoreline. Full of filthy stinking green weed and debris floating in it. Hope the town council read this. It's a disgrace.

We have had customers in today moaning about the problem saying no one is going in the sea. Not a good situation
