A familiar story, and Podemos at Pollensa town hall are reminding everyone of it. Each summer, the bay is crowded with boats that are anchored illegally, and it’s not as if they are well out in the bay.

They are close to shore and, as Michael Muller of Podemos points out, they occupy space that is meant to be for swimming. Moreover, they “contribute to the degradation and destruction of the seabed”.

An issue each summer, and each summer there are complaints and some action, only for the issue to return the next summer. Mayor Tomeu Cifre says that the town hall will do what it can within its powers and hopes that the Costas Authority will do likewise.

Ah yes, the Costas. Probably too busy otherwise engaged in removing terraces from beaches.

Leaving aside that the photo is already several years old, the anchoring was not illegal. The existing docks, like the one in the photo, were concessions so that the owners of the houses could moor their boats.

What the Government has done has been to eliminate the boats, enlarge the beaches and put more sun loungers. The only objective is the economic one.

If you had known Puerto de Pollensa in the past, this article would not have been written.

The anchorage off Port Pollensa is in a sheltered area that has been used by boats for centuries. It is not illegal to anchor there in one of the last remaining free natural anchorages in the western Mediterranian. Typical that the Marxist Podemos party wants to take away this feeedom.
