The Mallorca authorities have announced a crackdown on antisocial behavior by tourists, including vandalism, public intoxication, and fights, in an effort to turn the island into a more family-oriented tourist destination.

Mallorca, traditionally attracting party lovers, is now introducing strict restrictions and fines up to 3000 euros for order violations, responding to local residents' outrage over noise and disorder.

The Mayor of Palma, Jaime Martínez, emphasized that the island will not tolerate unacceptable behavior, understanding the expectations of local residents.

Despite a possible delay in the introduction of new rules by the start of the summer season, authorities plan to increase the number of police, demonstrating determination to maintain public order.

Reference

Mallorca, also known as Majorca, is the largest of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea and belongs to Spain.

Its area reaches 3640.16 square kilometers, making it the largest island in the country by area.

Mallorca is famed as a sought-after resort, along with other islands in the archipelago, including Ibiza, Formentera, and Menorca.

The main administrative and cultural center of the island is the city of Palma, which also serves as the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands.

Mallorca is not only the most populated island in the archipelago but also the second most densely populated Spanish island, second only to Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

It was previously reported that a week before the scheduled departure, Life at Sea Cruises cancelled its unique three-year cruise due to the failure to purchase the liner AIDAaura, promising to refund the passengers.
