Paying for sandcastle building!
« on: May 07, 2013, 10:28:39 AM »
MALLORCA TODAY - Tendering to build sandcastles

The most prominent case of a sandcastle sculptor being fined by the Costas Authority was in Puerto Pollensa last year. The fine was issued for unauthorised use of public land. This report finds that Mallorca seems to be unique in pursuing snadcastle builders and fining them. Now there is to be tendering system - in Puerto Pollensa at any rate. 700 euros to buy a lot.


I wouldn't be surprised if they put up screens now and charge for any one to look at the sandcastles! And as for taking photgraphs...! Then they will be touting along Pine Walk to get you to come and look at their art work and drop a few euros into their bowl rather than someone elses!!  8)
After all is said and done, a lot more will be said than done!

If this wasn't Mallorca you would think it was a joke wouldn't you!  :o

Don't they realise the overall cost? Do much adds to the beauty of PP and watching the building of this art is one of them. How crazy and how greedy!  >:(
