Although we have missed the two week Easter half term for a few years now,
I remember it being much quieter the first week. It became much busier the second with places opening over the Easter weekend.

Having said this there are still plenty of places open all year as PP has is not just a holiday resort it is a whole year residential town.

Many prefer this out of season time free from the tourist mêlée.

Might be 'when does PP wake up' from the visitors point of view, but when you add together all the renovations/renewals that have been listed on this forum in the past few months - and add similar projects last year - the work in the off season has been moving a pace. The investment in the Port recently is considerable.
Without looking back through the Forum - previously Club Illador, last year La Singala, Sis Pins, Cappachino, Capri. This off season, Hotel Uyal, La Galeon, Diana Apts, Bar Cultural?
I'm sure there are more. Altogether, it would appear, a vote of confidence in the future of the Port.

I reckon Sparkys glass should be almost overflowing, rather than just half full!

We thought the perfume shop was closed but they are actually splitting it into 2 separate units...glad to see the perfume shop is still giving quite a good offer for sterling ( €1.20 ) ...please note it was not my turn this time...husband stocked up on aftershave.

Some good offers too in the handbag shops (Chloe and the other shop) I just had to buy a bag,,it would have been rude not to
its cd, Belladonna and Sparky like this.
