The Sitges local tourist accommodation sector – hotels and apartments – is expecting a high occupancy rate during Easter, and which could reach 90% over the peak days. It is also hoping for an economic recovery after two years of revenues below minimum, with high season rates once again being applied.
Forecasts for other economic sectors – such as restaurants, bars, shops, taxi drivers and the port – are also optimistic and point to similar rates to those recorded in 2019, before the pandemic.
The only sector that will not be able to take advantage of the favourable conditions, now that most pandemic restrictions have been lifted, is that of beach concessionaires.
For the first time in more than 30 years there will be no sun beds or chiringuito bars on the beaches during April, as the old contracts have expired and the new ones have not yet come into force. They are expected to finally do so in June, once 200 applications have been reviewed and selected.
