Police, tourism ministry and health inspectors have been out in force in Magalluf.


Within the general framework of operations against businesses which contribute to a negative tourism image, the regional government has been working with other agencies in inspecting different establishments in and around Punta Ballena in Magalluf.

The tourism ministry coordinated inspections of establishments with the health ministry, the Guardia Civil and Calvia town hall and police. Priority was given to those establishments which are most popular with tourists, and more than one hundred inspections were carried out.

The ministry has started proceedings against eighteen for different infringements, including illegal offers. The town halls' activities' inspectors (who are responsible for business licences) together with the police's division dedicated to activities found that 66 out of 103 establishments didn't have the necessary documentation. They will all be fined, with the level of sanction dependent upon the seriousness of the specific offences.

Instead of pussyfooting around giving them a fine, why don't they take their licence to trade away, basically shutting the place down. One week for small offences to months for serious offences, The looky looky men are looked after by most bars because as soon as the police appear they take cover in the bars. Hit the offenders where it hurts the most, in their pockets by closing them down.

Why does this again feel like the easy option? While agreeing that all businesses should be legal are not the street muggers prostitutes and looky looky men a far greater problem?

They fine the lucky,lucky men and 5 mins later,business as usual.Bet any sanctions allow them to carry on. Why do politicians and police continue to think they control the island?

The more Calvia and The Guardia/Policia target Magaluf, the more I am pleased. It is a major problem for all concerned in Magaluf. The attraction of Booze,Sex,Drugs,prostitution etc. , has always been the problem for Magaluf. Perhaps the Calvia Authority have decided to bring this debauchery to an end. Magaluf could be a quality urbanisation for families, if the the purge of its catchment area is maintained, on a continuous Seasonal exercise.
