Calvia Council yesterday unveiled plans of a further crackdown in Magalluf while the Balearic Tourism Commission held a controversial meeting.
Palma.—Calvia Council intends to introduce new legislation prohibiting drinking in the streets and public places which will be enforced by the Local Police, council sources said yesterday.
And, the council also blamed some of the resort’s hotels for allowing organised mass drinking sessions to be held in their establishments in the mornings and afternoons.
“What happens is that we have hundreds of people leaving their hotels drunk at around 6pm and heading to Punta Ballena already worse for wear,” the source said.
At government level, the Minister for Tourism, Jaime Martinez, announced yesterday that the Balearic Tourism Commission has agreed to set up a special working group to coordinate an increase of inspections of bars and clubs and also closely monitor the activities of certain establishments.
This working group will also coordinate the control of businesses and tourists.
“There is no place for certain businesses and tourists” in the Balearics, the Minister warned.
