Default beach services starting from 1 May


Much reduced numbers of sunloungers and parasols

Services on Alcudia's beaches will resume on May 1. As with last year, when the beaches became the first in Spain to be given a Covid-free certification, the town hall intends operating with a reduced number of sunloungers and parasols. There will be eight-metre distancing between sunlounger sets and ten-metre wide "health corridors" for accessing the sea.

Since the start of February, municipal workers have been preparing the sunloungers and parasols, carrying out repairs and painting. In all, there are 4,000 sunloungers and 2,000 parasols, but only a quarter of these will initially be available. In 2020, no more than a third of the stock was put out.


The price for renting a sunlounger was frozen last year and will be again this summer - it is 6.50 euros.

Alcudia is a rare example of management of beach services being under the direct control of the town hall. Not all the services are, notably the beach bar "balnearios", but this direct management offered an advantage in 2020 as the town hall didn't need to enter into negotiations with contractors. For some beaches in Mallorca, there were no services as these were not viable economically. Alcudia accepts that it is taking a hit when it comes to revenue, but as well as wanting to present an image of as normal as possible, it has also ensured that there is employment for all municipal workers involved with looking after the beaches.
