Default State of the Beaches in PP

Hello all,

Would just like to share my thoughts on the beaches in PP.

they are in very abd condition. Water is dirty, sand is aswell and there is a horrible smell all across, cleanest beach are the ones nearer the Illa Dor and the Military base, and I find they get dirtier as you go along to Alcudia.

Illa Dor Beach. Aceptable

Daina Beach. Terrible, dark and smelly from the marina I guess

Beach from the Stay to Tolos Bridge. Disgusting

Tamarells beach. Still very dirty and smelly but better than the before

Beach on the raod heading to Alcudia. Extremely Bad.

Why is it, that PP being one of the most sought after and exclusive areas in Mallorca we have these crappy beaches!

Huh? How come I've just read a post by Debz (whose opinions I respect!) who says that the beaches and the sea in PP were spotless?

You beat me to it. Surely it can't change THAT quickly.

I slightly agree with some of ppmafioso points, the stretch in front of the Diana has darker sand and sometimes does smell a bit but as it is right next to the boats although the water is clean. The bit between the Stay and the bridge is far from disgusting. The beach by the road is not bad, its just not cleaned, so is naturally gets some of the float some and jetsam settling there.

I didnt look for other posts on beaches, just wrote my opinion on the ones I have been to in the Port.

And I am sorry but if you compare them to beaches like Playa de Muro, Cala, and the South of the Island, the ones in PP are disgusting. I was at the one in Tamarells at the weekend and if you dig a hand full of sand it is grey and smells terrible...

"Remember advice from else where ladies, donít feed the trolls "

Are you saying im a troll? sorry but I think you are miss understood... This is my sencere opinions on the state of the beaches in PP, each is entitle to there own opinion, and each must respect each others.

No point calling me a troll when I contribute to this site, and all my posts are genuine.

I hope I am wrong with the whole troll thing, but I understand you are saying I am a "fake" and perhaps talking rubish. As I have said before this is not the case.

sorry ppmafioso
The trolls remark wasn't aimed at you in particular, as you may have seen there seems to be an attempt by some here to wind people up, the remark was a reply to this, it was just a warning to others not to retaliate.
I didnít say you couldn't voice your opinion, in fact I agreed with some of your points. So carry on posting, I assume your views are genuine, just let us reply with our opinions as well

Sorry about that, it seems I had deeply missunderstood you before, I thought you were saying I am the troll and my opinions werent genuine.

A common internet miss-understanding!

Apologies again.

Well I have been reccommended to come to PP but after reading this Thread I am unsure We want to go to a nice resort with Fantastic Beaches and Sea.. If this is not the case I need to choose somewhere else on the Island? This is my first visit to Majorca....

I think if you read all the post regarding the beaches, there are some from previous year as well, you should see that the majority of people are more then happy with the quality of them, in fact the had the European Blue flag award last year which says a lot. Does anyone know if they have been awarded it again this year?

Default Blue Flags

To see this year's Blue Flags - see http://www.blueflag.org/blueflag/200...lity&order=asc

In Puerto Pollensa, Tamarells beach (South Sandy Beach) does have a flag, as does Formentor, & Calas Molins & Barques in Cala San Vicente.

Thanks for that pollensa,
I think that must prove that these beaches are clean because the regulations regarding the awarding of the flags are very stringent and daily checks of water condition are carried out.
I think that should put your mind at rest cosmicbabe, good name by the way

I think the beaches are great 2bh . You can't expect them to be spotless with the amount of people that use them . But I must agree that the beach near the hotels (by the pine walk ) isn't the nicest part of the beach . personally it gets cleaner the further up you go
