For anyone who is interested, Red Rum at Bacares is now open. Been there for lunch today. Good value and absolutely beautiful sitting at the water's edge with that fantastic view across to PP.

Following the traffic chaos last Saturday caused by the Mallorca 312 cycling trial and with the Ironman triathlon taking place this coming Saturday, the Council of Majorca has announced that it will be developing regulations to "bring order" to sports events using roads. In a statement, the Council has acknowledged that the situation last Saturday resulted in a great deal of inconvenience for the public and also for tourists (non-cycling ones). It is necessary, therefore, to "to reflect on and balance the importance of cycling with the public's daily life".

More than 1,000 expatriates per day registering to vote in referendum » Balearics » News » Majorca Daily Bulletin

Quote:
More than 1,000 British expatriates per day in Spain are going online to the UK government webpage where Britons can register to vote in the EU referendum. The British Ambassador Simon Manley recently described the strong interest among British expatriates in voting in the referendum as “very encouraging”.

...

Clicks on the www.gov.uk/register-to-vote from computer users with Spanish IP addresses have averaged more than 1,000 daily since the overseas voter registration campaign began on 4 February.
...
More than a quarter of a million Britons live in Spain and the large majority are thought to be eligible to vote. You must have been on the UK electoral roll within the last 15 years, or if you were under 18 when you left then at least one of your parents must have been on the electoral list.

The deadline to register for an overseas postal vote is 16 May, in order for ballot papers to be sent out from 23 May in time for them to arrive and for you to send them back. Simply visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote with your passport, National Insurance number and last UK postcode. The process takes just 5 minutes.

Quote:
Majorca, we are being told, is registering the best May ever in terms of tourist numbers and tourist spending, and this is especially so in three of the principal resort areas: those of the hoteliers for Playa de Palma, Palmanova-Magalluf and Alcudia-Can Picafort.

Jaime Horrach of the Alcudia-Can Picafort association says that there are more people, more occupancy and more spending. "In our area the average occupancy is around 90%, more than ten points up from 2015."

Rental prices back at pre-crisis levels as demand skyrockets » Balearics » News » Majorca Daily Bulletin
Quote:
The property rentals' market has undergone a radical turnaround in the past twelve months. Demand has gone through the roof, there is hardly any availability for all-year rentals and the rents themselves are back at pre-crisis levels.

... In coastal tourist resorts, the rental boom is meaning, as has been previously reported, that seasonal workers as well as residents are finding property hard to come by and at affordable rents.

A further reason for the migratory trend out of Palma is that property owners, especially in the old town, are opting to rent out to tourists and so increase their returns. A studio apartment in Palma typically now costs 500 euros a month, while a two-bedroom flat is 700 euros minimum.

Because of all this, estate agents are no longer bothering to advertise flats to rent, as the adverts produce so many calls. During the crisis years, it was not unusual for a flat to be advertised for up to two months. This no longer happens.
