Ballermann: Mallorca takes action against alcohol tourism – eight bars closed

The Balearic government is serious: it has closed eight bars in Mallorca until further notice. They violated the so-called "anti-booze tourism law", as announced by the regional tourism ministry in Palma on Wednesday. According to the information, four of these bars are located in the "Ballermann" on Playa de Palma, which is particularly popular with German visitors, the other four in the British holiday and party stronghold of Magaluf. In addition to the closures, investigations into violations of the law had been initiated in over 90 cases, it said.

The operators of the fined bars are accused of having served alcohol outside of the approved times and to minors. Some would also be accused of sexist advertising and the degradation of women. The authorities did not say whether the affected premises are bars, discotheques, restaurants or beach kiosks. A spokesman for the Ministry of Tourism told the "Mallorca Newspaper" that this information and the names of the restaurants should not be passed on for data protection reasons.

The "anti-booze tourism law" was passed in 2020 to combat excesses on Playa de Palma, in Magaluf and also in Sant Antoni on Ibiza. The regional government of the Balearic Islands has been striving for an image change for several years. Various initiatives are being taken to improve the quality of tourism and to ban so-called drunk vacationers as far as possible.
