Why so quiet?!

Why so quiet?!

We arrived here yesterday and came down to the centre yesterday. Considering it was a Friday night most of the bars and even the restaurants were practically empty. There were a few that were even shut. We always go on holiday..to Majorca, Tenerife, Turkey etc in June and the resorts are always really busy. Am I missing something?

We have just returned and found it a bit quieter than normal.

Gets busy Sat and Sun though.

Some bars were saying weather was a bit too good and people spent all day on the beach.

Most restaurants were busy where we went, but not until after 8 pm.

We were the only people in Cosquin one night though, which is unusual.

Maybe generally low rates of exchange are starting to bite.

We have chosen Majorca twice this year instead off Fuengirola , we got flights and hotel to there for the same price as just the flights to Malaga , maybe the price has a lot to do with it

Seems strange to hear that its quiet, especially as loads of apartment owners were fully booked for this summer from very early last year. My flights this year havent been any higher cost than last years. I do book as soon as they are released though.

I have just returned from Majorca and it was very quiet there too, you also have to pay tourist tax in the Balearics so it was 32 Euro on check not a lot of money but strikes as penny pinching. Bars and restaurants were on the whole quiet I guess people don’t gave the money these days and the exchange rates are poor you find most if the time drinks are more expensive than the UK. Visiting Fuengirola end of August hopefully it will be busy and sunny.
