The return of the nocturnal restoration: total success in its first week

Since last Monday, April 26, restaurants in Mallorca are already allowed to serve dinners. The premises have a two-shift schedule, being obliged to close at 5:00 p.m. and being able to reopen from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. from Monday to Thursday.

Despite the short night hours and the fact that the restrictions have only been lifted during the week, the reception by both residents and tourists has been total. The open premises on the beach of Palma such as Chalet Siena or Bikkini Beach have practically been filled, of course complying with all current restrictions.

Step by step, the island recovers its usual tourist activity, with the support of consumers who, like restaurateurs, were eager to return to enjoy the island night to measure.


The Balearic Islands offers to "pilot" the implementation of the vaccination certificate in Spain

As we informed you last week, the EU is preparing the launch of a digital vaccination certificate, which would allow a more fluid traffic of passengers and would eliminate both PCRs and mandatory quarantines.

Faced with this very attractive scenario for tourist activity, the president of the Government, Fancina Armengol, has not hesitated to offer the state government that the Balearic Islands be the first community to implement this certificate. He also highlighted that Spain is one of the countries that has the most advanced implementation of the document.

The goal is for the certificate to be ready before the tourist season begins.


Increase in reservations in Balearic hotels

Accommodation reservations have increased by 28% compared to last week, according to data provided by the TravelgateX platform.

Good news that augurs a growing tourist season from the second half of May. In addition, the tour operator FTI joins the actions of Tui and Alltours and announces that by the end of May it could offer its clients some 400 hotels in Mallorca.


The current numbers of COVID in the Balearic Islands

The situation in the islands remains "under control" and with some declining numbers.

According to the latest data published by the Balearic Government for Mallorca, the incidence of the last 7 days places it at 27.57 infections per 100,000 inhabitants (the day before it was 26.34). 

Trend that fortunately week after week continues to decline. Mallorca has been continuously and stable below an incidence of 35 days in 7 days since February 24.
