The wrecked yachts in Albercuix beach are finally being removed in a rather brutal way - a JCB smashing them into small pieces.

They must have been unregistered and so it was not possible to contact the owners, also it is possible that there was not enough space to bring in a crane to lift them off, it's a shame but they had to be removed .

The Costas Authority has yet to send Pollensa town hall its new authorisation for beach services; the most recent four-year authorisation expired in December. The town hall believes that there is no time to put the different services out to tender, while it anticipates that there is unlikely to be much interest among potential concessionaires because of the uncertainty surrounding the tourism season.
...

...the town hall will undertake the cleaning of the promenades (Albercutx and Tamarells in Puerto Pollensa) and the beaches.

Whereas lifeguard services have been reactivated elsewhere, e.g. in neighbouring Alcudia, they haven't been in Pollensa. There are red flags to prohibit bathing in accordance with the current phase of de-escalation. ...

When occupancy is high, the Albercutx and Tamarells beaches require seventeen lifeguards. The service costs the town hall some 400,000 euros. Regular meetings with the local police and Guardia Civil will be held in order to assess the situation with regard to beach usage.

It baffles me that you can go into the sea to kayak or paddle board but not to swim or have a paddle .

It looks like it is currently on the beach or prom as you can see the mast. They must have been able to crane it out of the water I guess.

Yes there are a few photos on FB showing the crane in action, another boat a bit further along has also been taken off .

Maybe they will set it up on the beach for the children to play on. A similar arrangement seems to work well in Emmerdale. Er, so I'm told Then there was the Black Pearl on New Brighton beach, sadly destroyed by stormy weather.

They have completely removed the small motor cruiser that was on the beach. The yacht is now on the beach right outside Pascalino minus mast , deck fittings etc. They had a low loader there but for some reason did not remove the hull. When the crane lifted it out of the sea the keel snapped off and is still in the water.

The cost of doing all this must be enormous!

Now that all the beached boats have been removed work has started on repairing the damage done on the Pine Walk and other areas of the front .
