With the arrival of Spring and Holy Week 2018, the port of Sotogrande, its beaches, nearby hotels, chiringuitos and surroundings are prepared to receive tourists who will start arriving this year from the end of March.
During the winter season, many of the establishments closed to renovate their facilities and to offer this season an improved version of them. This efforts are part of the project of growth in the southern area of Spain, especially on the beaches of Málaga and Cádiz, this season starts from the months of March and April until the end of September.
From this Holy Wednesday, we thought that it will be possible to reach 75% occupancy and even reach 86% from Thursday. The good thing is that the rain has gone and the temperatures have risen just in time to offer a suitable weather to enjoy the leisure of the surroundings.
As for restaurants, the goal is to make the investment profitable with 15% more sales compared to 2017. Around the Costa de la Luz, restaurants and beach bars represent between 3,000 and 3,500 jobs in the sector.
One of the main projects are holiday rental homes, which are growing really fast in the market. There are apartments, penthouses and villas that are rented for a short period which offers a more private and residential environment for tourists so they can enjoy a vacation without any worry. The probability of reaching more than 60% occupancy in holiday rental properties is quite high, let's see how the Holy Week 2018 unfolds.
Regarding to the field of Gibraltar, during this Holy Week, several processions and events are also scheduled from San Roque and Algeciras. Which will provide images of the thrones and represent the Christian passion of the area, Tarifa will also have processions during the week.
This one is one of the most expected weeks without any doubt in Sotogrande, not only because of the good weather and leisure, but also, with the representation of the Christian holy week (one of the greatest characteristics of the Spanish culture). This week represents the beginning of one of the seasons with the greatest growth projection in the area of Sotogrande, Andalusia and the coasts of Cádiz and Málaga.
