News of the week

Balearic Islands, a safe destination

The low incidence of COVID-19 infections allows the islands to be included in a "green list". The British Government joins the decision taken weeks ago by Germany to remove the Balearic Islands from the sanitary list of risk areas.

Thus, this decision will also imply that tourists coming from the islands who return to the United Kingdom or Germany will not have to undergo a quarantine; it will be enough to present a PCR test 72 hours before returning to their country of origin.

Hopes are rising for a return to normality as soon as possible. "We are reaching the end of the tunnel and the German market will be our main issuing market again," says the president of the Goverment, Francina Armengol. She has also assured that work is being done to "ensure the tourist season".

 

Restaurant opening hours are extended

Finally the good news has arrived: there will be dinners in restaurants. From this Saturday the new measures adopted by the Balearic Government come into force that give a further respite to the restoration.

- The curfew is delayed until 23.00 hours.

- Opening of the terraces between 17h and 20h from Monday to Thursday.

- 4 people per table without limit of cohabitation.

The interior of the establishments will remain closed (except on the island of Menorca) in order to guarantee the tourist season for the summer.

 

Digital vaccination certificate

The EU member states expect the digital vaccination certificate to be operational by the end of June, which will eliminate mandatory PCRs and quarantines.

The certificate will also reflect whether the person has had Covid recently or the results of the latest tests performed.

Spanien unterstützt die Einführung dieser Maßnahme und hofft, dass sich der innereuropäische Tourismus mit seiner Einführung erheblich erholen kann.

 

Farewell to bad weather

In the last weeks Mallorca has lived a constant meteorological ups and downs, but the low temperatures and the cold come to an end.

From this Friday onwards the scratches say goodbye to the island and give way to sunny days with some clouds, typical of the Mallorcan spring. The thermometers will break the barrier of 20º, reaching 23º this Saturday and Sunday.

Although during this week the sun and cloudy skies will alternate, we will generally have a very pleasant temperature that will allow us to enjoy the island and its beaches peacefully.
