“Isn't it great that there are no tourists, for once we have the islands to ourselves.” How many times have you heard that since the bar terraces and beaches were allowed to reopen? Perhaps it is.

Over the past few years there has been a growing anti-tourism sentiment across the Balearics and it has not gone unnoticed by would be visitors. Never mind the chaos caused by thousands of cruise passengers spewing into the centre of Palma, tourists have been blamed for excess traffic, noise, antisocial behaviour, damaging the environment, using up all the natural resources and invading the beaches.
