The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has sent these restaurants a letter reminding owners that they are obliged to comply with the authorised opening hours.
The APB has put out to tender the operation of two leisure facilities in the port of Palma. The first is a cafe and tourist information point in the old San Carlos Battery located in the Dique de Oeste dock, which has recently been restored by the APB. This initiative aims to provide a new urban space, open to both citizens and passengers of cruise ships, to admire the views of the Bay of Palma from a location previously inaccessible to the public. The other proposal concerns what is known as Bar Varadero, located at the beginning of the Commercial Docks, whose concession has just ended. The objective of the competition is the exploitation, for a period less than fifteen years, of a bar-cafe-restaurant of 411 square meters and for which approximately forty-nine thousand euros are required for annual improvement fees.
