Work in Santa Ponsa.


Work being carried out on the seafront in Santa Ponsa is exhausting everyone's patience - residents, business owners and tourists. It is the middle of June and there are large trucks and bulldozers within metres of the beach. It is accepted that the town hall's work in the Ramón de Montcada area will be beneficial, but it is not acceptable for tourists and residents to have put up with the noise and dust in the summer season.

Some businesses add that the work is also preventing excursions boats docking. These are for trips to Dragonera, and tourists who want to take one are having to go to Paguera instead.

Although there are general restrictions on construction activity in tourist areas between May and October if the work entails noise and mess, town halls are not bound by them.

Hardly surprising, I've been seeing regular updates online on the lack of progress on this site for months now, Santa Ponsas loss is Paguera's gain as it looks as though we'll be taking a day out of Santa Ponsa to take in a boat trip leaving from Paguera. Could've been finished months ago if they'd actually had people on site, must be very frustrating for the residents never mind the holiday makers.

Because of incompetence,at least half of this season looks as though it will be lost in Santa Ponsa,why can such work not be done between November and february.?

Unreal but expected. This work was supposed to be finished by start of May. We were there in April for over 2 weeks and not one person working on this site the whole time . A good team could have done the work in 4/5 weeks over the winter. But why do it then when tomorrow will do. Be lucky if it's complete for ( busy) July / August . They probably didn't say what May it would be complete by.

Where there are sunbeds there is noise, where there is no noise there are no sunbeds, when you have been mugged you do not get any help and when your holiday cost 2500 € you need to pay extra tax. What a wonderful island it became. We have seen it changed but in most of the cases for worst.

They had all winter to do this but waited until after Christmas. Entirely predictable.

Looking at the picture, seems like the new rentals legislation and tourist tax are having an affect!!

So there are restrictions but they don't have to be obeyed. Only in Mallorca!!
