Are there just too many tourists this year? This is a question which some people have been asking. Thankfully, it is only a small number of people who have obviously forgotten that without tourism this island is nothing; and remember that it is a very long and cold winter. On some given days, when the Port of Palma is packed with cruise ships, the city centre does feel rather overcrowded. But no-one in their right mind who lives in Majorca would ever say that we have too many tourists. It must be remembered that the majority of businesses survive during the winter on the money they have made during the summer. If there are more tourists, then they will have an easier winter period.
