The population of Majorca - permanent and temporary - has been going up by more than other parts of Spain for many years. | D. Gonzalez
It seems you cannot get away from talk of overcrowding and saturation. There was a perhaps alarming report on Tuesday on population growth in the Balearics. Projections up to 2030 suggest that the base population (those who live on the islands) is set to rise by around a third, while the maximum population (adding in all the high-summer influx) could go up to 2.5 million from its present just over two million.
