KWUK2 - the loss of the ice cream hut was nothing to do with Costas. It was a trading licence issue (and another company sticking their oar in!)

Don't forget the design of the increased number of 'new parasols' taking up most of the beach off the Pine Walk. Completely obscuring the views out across the bay - The Pine Walk is regularly advertised as a star attraction - a pleasant walk along the sea shore with wonderful vistas etc etc. Not any more - a much reduced attraction with these poorly designed and positioned money making machines.

All that said, Mrs Clinkham and I are now topped up with vaccine, and have booked a week at the Miramar at the end of May. Fingers crossed holidays will be allowed by then ( or early March when final balance is due!)

A protest is taking place now, many cars driving around the Port and making a lot of noise, i hope the media are covering it.

I noticed that they even want to remove the wooden walkways that enable disabled people to access the specially designated wheel chair sun beds. Can't see how they can get away with that?

Yes indeed Clinkham, I also dislike the new parasol arrangements where visitors cannot see the sea or the beach because they are so numerous. In fact, I think that was the reason Pips changed her chosen holiday resort a couple of years back.

Anyway, bring on August, when we too will be staying at the Miramar for 2 weeks. Stick with End of May Clinkham - pretty sure their website says they will not re-open until 1st April 2021.

I've not seen any mention of it in the Mallorca Times.

It was reported in the Ultima Hora but there was nothing in the MDB.

The poster for the protest says that the Costas Authority has turned down Pollensa town hall's request to maintain the playgrounds, the wooden ramps for wheelchair users and the Llenaire picnic area as well as the request for a public toilet in this area.

Great news. Can I suggest that in order to cater for those who do not like being in the vicinity of children enjoying themselves that we petition the council to set up a separate area for them to use. I am trying to think of a suitable site, suggestions please!!
