Police in Palma have had to deal with more illegal street parties as Covid cases rise. Last night, Friday, June 4, police in Palma had to deal with five illegal street parties, or “macrobotellones.” There was also an illegal party on Thursday in Playa de Palma.
From around 12am until 1:30am, local police tackled dispersing the people attending the party, including removing people from the beach. There were also a number of tourists out in the streets of Playa de Palma, according to Majorca Daily Bulletin.
Around 150 people had to be moved on from Plaça Drassana, near La Llotja and the port, and similar numbers of people were also on the Carrer Sant Magí in Santa Catalina, in the area of the Feixina Park and on the Son Castelló industrial estate.
An operation that was in collaboration with the National Police saw officers deployed until 6am and officers also checked around 50 establishments in Arenal, Santa Catalina and elsewhere.
Palma town hall has said that current Covid regulations are being respected by most in bars, shops and restaurants.
The operation by police last night will continue tonight, with authorities reiterating that the fines for illegal street parties are “very harsh.”
