Ok peeps

The kebab thread got me worrying for a bit that Rafa's was going to give up Batucada and that has got me thinking

If you had to pick some special things ( started off thinking one thing but then realised there was no way I could come up with just one ) about PP that you really couldn't bear to lose what would they be.

Ok so lets not include the sea sand and lovely mountains ..... They are a given

To start us off my list would be in no particular order

The Hustlers
Batucada
Trio
The helados hut
Illa D'Or
Seaplane
Ferry to Formentor

Ok

Don't change anything into a 'sports bar'
Cheap Bacardi at the Spar supermarket near Pinaret
Cheap perfect size lilo as above (need it for my back on sunbed)
The lovely leather shop near the rotunda (Sirocco?) (I always say I am definitely not going to buy anything, but.........)
Citrus
Trio

And I am still thinking

For me lots of things

1. Views to die for
2. Sitting at the cultural in the square mid afternoon with a drink so tranquil
3. Cava on the beach early evening with those views
4. Wednesday market
5. Restaurant stay
6. Cocktails at the I,lla dor and Capri
7. Chloe and anuama clothes shops
8. Xocolat cake shop
9. Walking the pine walk anytime of day

Thinking of all these wonderful thoughts can't wait to go back roll on end of March

Initially I was at risk of just typing a huge list including just about every hotel, bar & restaurant we've visited - however, when I thought about this a little more I realised, as much as we'd be upset if our favourite hotel/bar/restaurant ceased to exist we would cope with our 2nd or 3rd favourite-

So my choice is simply 'the people':
The locals, ex-pats & fellow holiday makers are really the most important factor in creating the PP atmosphere that we love. (but the weather & views help too !).

Lol, Doogz, I was going to post almost exactly the same thing, I had been thinking and even if some of our favorite places closed it wouldn't matter, we would find more, we were gutted when Tango moved but we still go!
It would have to be the scenery for me, if they did build hotels all around the bay or stick oil rigs in the bay it might make me think about going elsewhere.
But as you say one thing I wouldn't want to lose would be the spirit and the friendliness of all the people there, thats what makes it for us, the welcome you get form everyone from locals to friends we have made, that is the thing that draws people back, and as you say the stunning views and weather help!

Being a busy Mum, I think for me it would have to be the sense of peace I feel when I arrive, suddenly all the pressures of life/work disappear, I just totally relax

Default things we would miss

Great thread ..3 things, only 3? Here are my 3, the pine walk, anytime of day, any weather, always something to see, seaplane, go like a silly grinning kid when I hear the rumble of the engine, ice cream hut, perfect way of rounding off a night, walking said pine walk with a side by side cone in your hand.
