PostSubject: Latest news re Mallorca & Magaluf   Mon Nov 04, 2013 5:17 pm

Majorca Daily Bulletin
Viewpoint in tomorrow´s newspaper by Jason Moore: MAJORCA has something for everyone. From the party resorts of Arenal and Magalluf to the family resorts of Pollensa, Alcudia and Calas de Mallorca. Everything under the sun. But unfortunately Magalluf is rather upsetting the Majorcan apple cart. British tour operators are concerned that Magalluf could tarnish Majorca´s image and tourists could go elsewhere.
Five people died in Magalluf last summer and there were countless injuries as well. The police carried out numerous raids and made a large number of arrests. The stabbing of six people in Magalluf last week made headlines news in the British newspapers yesterday.
Something has to be done about Magalluf. I know for a fact that the Calvia council is planning to introduce yet another “get tough campaign” in the resort next summer. Perhaps, it would be a good idea for the business community to sit down with the Calvia council and the police to discuss exactly what is needed.
At a time when Majorca is facing stiff competition from other holiday destinations we can´t have would-be holiday bookers being scared away because of Magalluf. I don´t think there is any quick fix. Calvia council simply can´t afford to flood the resort with police. I think that everyone involved in Magalluf should play a role in ridding the resort of its ills. The business community has to play their part as well. Let us sort out Magalluf once and for all before it is too late and tourists go elsewhere.

Such a shame, it was never like this in the 80's, everyone just wanted fun and party time.

All Mallorca's bad news, seems to be coming from Magaluf. Unfortunately 5 people have died, which is 5 too many. Why can't people just go out to enjoy themselves, it beats me.

They turned a blind eye a few years ago and now the problems have escalated beyond control.

I like PN but Magaluf is a poo hole to me now.

I have to agree with you about Maga mate, it is such a shame.

I saw this and saw some of the comments too, differing opinions. But I think I agree with you guys.

Only venture into Maga during the day when with family and kids and if I m out there with the lads usually stick to the brittainia bar and a couple of others down the road.
