Reportedly hundreds of adolescents are drinking themselves into a stupor every night, some of them stretch out on the pavement unable to walk. Residents claim that revellers also make a great deal of noise, fighting amongst themselves, and vandalising the area.
For years, Cala Rajada has been a favourite with young tourists and it was one of the first municipalities to introduce legislation to stop the consumption of alcohol in the street.
Gabriel Torres, the Tourism Councillor for Capdepera in whose jurisdiction Cala Rajada falls yesterday confirmed that the situation was getting out of control and that the council was taking steps to restrict the effects of tourist behaviour.
Meetings, Torres said, are planned with representatives of the leisure industry - bars, pubs, restaurants and discothèques - in the area, and the Local Police are also holding talks with owners of night spots. Torres said the problem seems to have become worse this year.
