Holidays in Mallorca: Beach visitors at 180 – “They should be banned!”

What would a holiday in Mallorca be without a day or two at the beach? For many tourists, relaxing by the sea is a must. Most people want to bask in the sun and enjoy peace and quiet. But if you're looking to relax at Playa Arenal, you'll be in for a real treat.

Holidays in Mallorca: you can't miss it

Not far from Balneario 1 is Playa S'Arenal. The bay, with its white sand beach and turquoise waters, is one of the most popular swimming spots in the region. Vacationers can rent beach loungers and an umbrella or relax on the sand with their own beach towels.

So far, so good. But around 11 a.m., the relaxation and peace ends. Then drink vendors storm the playa. Each of them is stocked with a carrier full of cold alcoholic beverages, which they loudly announce. “Hellooooo, Mojitooooo, Sangriiiiiaaaa,” shout as many as five vendors as they make their rounds across the sand.

This constant sound is a real disgrace to many swimmers. Our editorial team was there and talked to tourists about the conditions in Playa Arenal.

Vacation in Mallorca: Beach vacationers are upset

The situation in Playa in the afternoon hours has nothing to do with relaxation. Some vacationers roll their eyes in annoyance, others completely ignore the vendors, and still others flinch when they walk past them screaming. Either way: swimmers are fed up.

We've rounded up more news for you here today:

“It really gets on your nerves after a while. Overall, I think this should be banned. After the alcohol ban in Ballermann, I don't understand why it's still allowed anyway!”, one German holidaymaker told us. Another bather says: “Actually, they are just doing their job.” But screaming loudly here all the time is very annoying.”
