THE socialist opposition on the Calvia town council launched a scathing attack on the governing majority over the state of Santa Ponsa beach, accusing it of “irresponsibility, negligence and laziness.” The PSOE (Spanish Socialist Workers Party) said that rows of seats had been dismantled at the beginning of July and had been left lying on the beach.
A party spokesman said that Santa Ponsa was “one of the most important beaches in the Balearics” and said it was disgraceful that tourists should have to share the sand with so much rubbish and rubble.

The dismantled seating and chairs had been left on the beach since early July, when the sports activities for which they had been installed came to an end. “The beach is dirtier than ever and the Partido Popular council not only does nothing to solve the situation, but adds to the trouble by leaving its own materials there,” the spokesman said.

The socialists said that the council, dominated by the Partido Popular (PP) and Majorcan Union (UM) was “inefficient and irresponsible” in allowing and promoting “a poor image in the municipality during a summer season which is proving to be extremely difficult for the people of Calvia.” The spokesman went on to say “our beaches are our greatest treasure and PP cares nothing about them.” Calvia includes the popular resorts of Palma Nova, Magalluf, Illetes, and Paguera as well as Santa Ponsa.
