Cap Pinar, guarded by the military. | T. Ayuga
The issue of public access to the area of Cap Pinar in Alcudia continues to be one of some controversy. Essentially off-limits since the late 1940s when it became a military zone, agreements as to access have been sought, attained but not thoroughly acted upon. One of 2011 envisaged controlled visits of 50 people per day, but this didn't come into effect because of costs involved in terms of maintenance of an area of some one thousand hectares. There was also a feeling that the ministry of defence was simply dragging its heels.
