PALMA city council is planning to step up controls to prevent drunken or excessive behaviour in the so-called ‘Dutch zone’ of the beach this holiday season.
The city authority has approved the extension of the times for special surveillance of the area to between 1am and 8am, rather than starting at 5am.
The declaration of this part of the coast as a zone of special tourist interest will be effective from Abril 1 to September 30. In the area identified as potentially attracting drunken tourism there will be a ban on allowing the consumption of alcohol outside establishments and businesses will be obliged to inform customers to have respect for local residents.
