Three tourists fined for doing 'balconing'

 

Wednesday 26th June 2019

INFORMATIVE NOTE FROM THE LOCAL POLICE OF CALVIÀ

THREE TOURISTS HAVE BEEN FINED FOR DOING BALCONING

The last case was yesterday in a Magaluf hotel in broad daylight

The Local Police of Calvià, in compliance with the Promotion of Coexistence Bylaw, has fined three tourists for balconing or similar, ie when they jump or try to jump from a balcony to the pool or try to move from one balcony to another on the exterior of a building. The amount of the penalty for this behaviour ranges from € 600 to € 1,500. According to the municipal regulations, this is a serious offence and those responsible are the people who do it, as well as those who encourage this behaviour, without this responsibility being extended to the person who owns the establishment or the exploiter. Sanctions for balconing are included in the municipal ordinance for the Promotion of Coexistence in Calvià since 2016, and before that they were already included in the repealed Police and Good Government Ordinance of Calvià.

A new balconing case took place yesterday in Magaluf at 2 p.m., in this case it is a Spanish tourist. In total, the number of fines in 2019 is three, all now in June. In 2018, eleven fines were filed for balconing throughout the year. These are usually young tourists who have drank a lot of alcohol. It is to be recalled that in this tourist season one tourist died because he fell from a hotel balcony in the municipality of Calvià.
