Default On the beach 2024

Arrived in the Port on Friday and glad to see that most bars and restaurants are opening up ready for the start of the season. However also notice that all three pop up beach bars are not in situ and that there are no beds or umbrellas on the beach. Presumably the local council are up to their usual tricks and trying to drive good money spending tourists elsewhere???

Normally the windbreaks are not removed until mid April and beach brollies etc put up around the same time or later depending on the ‘concessions’ given out by the council.The beach bars appear about the same time as well when the weather is constistently better. Everything is open now as Easter this year is very early and I’m sure there’ll be an influx of people next week when the summer schedules start for the flights and because of Easter but quiet at the moment and most restaurants fairly empty -lots of cyclists though!

I did just post this on another thread but thought it was worth asking here too..

My Mum and Dad are out there currently and have been told by a girl they know working in one of the bars that there won't be any beach bars this year or beds? This doesn't feel like it can be true and maybe my Dad misunderstood be it would be interesting to know if anyone else has heard this at all?

I have to say theres no way there wouldn't be any beds or parasols on the beach and the beach bars have not made any comments on social media about not being reinstated, but you never know for sure! Some of the things that go on are very odd!

Was about to post almost the same. It seems inconcievable to a
imagine they’d be no sunbeds or parasols but the Costas have very strange ideas sometimes!!

We’ve been in touch with Embat and they say that the council haven’t issued any of the permits for beach concessions. Not sure whether this would apply to beds and brollies too, although agree with others - that would seem bonkers even by their standards!

Default Beginning of May ...

Had an e-mail reply from the PP tourist office and it says '...work is underway, so that beds and umbrellas will probably be installed on the beach at the beginning of May.'

Authorisation now comes from the Balearic government, not the Costas Authority

...

The town hall doesn't yet have authorisation from the coasts directorate to tender the services - sun loungers, parasols, bars. The directorate, which comes under the Balearic government since the transfer of powers from the state Costas Authority, has added certain requirements to the original application. ...

Mayor Martí March responded on Wednesday, saying that the application and the new documentation needed by the directorate were supplied on time, although he admitted that this could have been done sooner.

...

"We will issue the tender conditionally, informing the company that the contract depends on this authorisation." March added that he is in constant contact with the directorate and that he expects to obtain authorisation shortly. "They have until May, although they may give it to us in mid-April."
