A COLLECTION of signatures on a digital platform denouncing the lack of services on the Pollensa beaches and the poor state of the waterfront area has proved successful.
The first sun loungers have finally arrived at the Puerto Pollensa beach after weeks of complaints from tourists and businesses. In addition to the loungers, posts have also been hammered in place for Mallorca’s emblematic straw parasols.
In only two days, almost 200 signatures denouncing the situation were collected accompanied by countless comments from tourists, primarily from the UK, expressing their dissatisfaction and denouncing the mismanagement of the area.
The delay in the awarding of the tender for beach services led to the collection of signatures which were then presented to the Pollensa Town Hall. Besides the lack of chairs and umbrellas, disgruntled tourists have also complained about work being carried out along the waterfront this winter with some of them threatening to spend holidays elsewhere in Mallorca.
Some say there are travel agencies in England suggesting to their clients they choose other areas on the island because of the lack of services and the bother of unfinished reforms along the promenade.
