Re: Off-Shore Inflatable Thingy

Was there also some truth of 'left wing' Costas trying to snub some people ( PP ) at Alaior council?

Re: Cala en porter

"Every Menorquin who I have spoken to on my travels thinks Cala'n Porter is an Ingles ghetto, maybe it's a cultural difference thing......"

Re: Bamalams

I think despite what Tourist Board says feels like lot less people on the island - Mahon is noticeablly less people at time when you would expect a lot more. Tried Balams too - had 25 Set menu evening. Plus point for CnP but will be hard for them - just not enough people around

Re: Binibeca

Menorca ( Baleraics ) follows waves and of course the large tourist companies play a major role. The tourist board opened up AI under immense pressure from TUI and co and of course this devastated Bars and restauarants whose reponse was also woefully unco-ordinated and wrong. Add in some stupid empl...

Re: Tourist licence

Re: Binibeca

The short answer is the Menorca tourist board has for years been run by people who have no clue and it is also politicised by the various parties. Nice people that they may well be they are hopelessly out of their depth.
