CONCERN has been growing amongst business owners in Port d’ Alcudia as they believe the stricter regulations in Magaluf could potentially displace the ‘tourism of excesses’ to their area.Several shop and restaurant owners in the Dolar area (known locally as ‘The Greasy Mile’) expressed their concern as they believe the increased police presence in Punta Ballena, together with the popularisation of the ‘all-inclusive’ culture in Alcudia, could bring to the area all those tourists that Magaluf is hoping to get rid of.“Every afternoon from 4pm to 8pm and even after that, until 2am, is when the disturbances start,” said a resident from the area. “Extremely loud music, alcohol… families staying in other hotels complain about this situation.”“This is a kind of tourism which is not only damaging to Alcudia, as it has an established ‘family-tourism’ model, but it is not good for any other areas of Mallorca,” said another resident. “It is necessary to reflect on the issue collectively so that hotels do not advertise themselves under the ‘all-inclusive’ scheme.”
