Another season, another Magalluf crackdown ...

05-04-2018Archive

Calvia town hall yesterday announced plans to operate a door-to-door information and awareness scheme explaining to bar, club owners and hoteliers what the new rules and regulations are going to be this season.

The main message is that this year there is going to be "zero tolerance" and the local police will be penalising establishments which offer happy hours and special drink offers such as two or three for the price of one.

Recently, the town hall had a meeting with senior British consular staff to discuss what plans are on the table for this year. While Calvia is stepping up its action, it also asked the British government to take steps in the UK to encourage people to behave while on holiday this year and to respect the local bylaws. Social media and direct information campaigns were called for.

The new operation began yesterday with the councillor for citizen security, Andreu Serra and the councillor for commerce, Paquita Muñoz, accompanying a team of police on the first round of establishments, informing owners of the new regulations.

The key areas are going to be Magalluf, Palmanova and the area of Ramon de Montcada in Santa Ponsa.

The town hall intends using all its available legal powers this year to stamp out alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour, and all of the establishments will be given leaflets clearly outlining what the rules and regulations are and what penalties they will face should they ignore the new regime this summer.

Last season saw the introduction of a ban on the consumption of alcohol and nudism in public places. This year there is to be an even tougher stance as part of the drive to clean up the black-spot resorts and create a more family atmosphere.

There really are some sad individuals around! If you WAN'T bars, drinks, beach clubs and a young lively atmosphere then visit Magaluf and if you DON'T go somewhere else! There are so many amazing places to visit in Mallorca and such a lot to offer everyone so why not stop banging on about how families with children and folk who want a quiet time don't like Magaluf ! I don't care for mountain hiking and guess what.... im not planning on booking my next holiday hiking in the hills!!! Neither for that matter am i going to waste my life winging about hikers and preaching about how i don't want to see them in there thick socks and back packs every time i walk out of the remote hotel i stupidly booked up in the mountains, neither for that matter am i going to wine on about how i think they should be FINED for carrying walking STICKS and humming along to radio 2 ! Come one guys get a grip, live and let live & if you don't like sun don't book to go to the desert and stand there tutting like a plonker.

Magaluf could so easily be families again, the retired pound and upmarket establishments. Walking off the beach at 15.00 the bar called Badgirlz - even the name conjures the meeting - scantily clad women dancing provocatively in heels on podiums, in full view of the families walking off the beaches. If you want families to replace the Rabble of drunken drugged youth - this style of establishment has to change the offering.

Punta ballena has been like this since the 1980's & they STILL trying to fix the problem.i went to the Bcm when there was armed security on the doors in the eighties. It's now alcohol & drugs not just the alcohol that's the problem. CHARGE & FINE them for hospital treatment . Keep all the idiots in one area is better than spoiling other resorts. Majorca wants family s in the resorts then create the atmosphere & upgrade the resorts for them to come back.Explain to YOUR children what lap dancing is . Palma Nova is improving but too close to Magaluf for this family to risk our hard earned cash.

I see all these lap dancing places in the background, who is responsible for granting licences to establishments like these. Perhaps that is where zero tolerance should begin, or maybe that is a can of worms that would shame some top people?
