Mallorca changes in times of visit
We live in exciting times. There is a feeling that something big is about to happen that will fundamentally change all of our lives. Climate change, digitalisation, globalisation and overpopulation are just some of the keywords we often hear in this context. We ask, is this really the case, and above all we want to know what lies ahead for us and future generations. And of course these questions are also interesting for the island of Mallorca. One only has to look back a few decades and realise that the clocks do not stand still on Mallorca either and that fundamental changes have taken place in the past decades that were not only for the good of the beautiful Balearic island. Flat-rate tourism, but also the steadily growing individual tourism, has had a decisive impact on the development here. Finding solutions to get a grip on both economic and ecological grievances are the big issues of this time.
Due to Covid19 and the associated lockdown, the island of Mallorca has certainly benefited from this state of emergency in an ecological sense, but it looks less positive for the entire tourism industry. In the end, however, many things will change for the better. Choosing Mallorca as the location for a holiday property will become even more interesting than it already was. The so-called mass tourism did not take place in 2020 and instead we will experience a cultivated individual tourism of high quality. No overcrowded beaches and therefore a much better quality of seawater, less road traffic and less hustle and bustle in daily life. These are only a few of the pleasant changes one notices when coming to the island. For example, the president of the Island Council of Mallorca sees "Corona" as an opportunity against mass tourism. Why? The mass influx of tourists has brought severe social effects and dislocations. For years, more and more simple flats in apartment buildings have been illegally rented out to tourists via holiday rental platforms. This is especially a big problem in the Balearic capital Palma. In short, the relatively small island of Mallorca has long since exceeded its ecological carrying capacity. It is time to rethink.
Perhaps it is precisely these circumstances and the planned changes that are moving Mallorca as a location for a holiday property more into the focus of our customers than ever before. Quality with sustainable tourism instead of quantity. But also the certainty that the segment of holiday properties in the southwest of Mallorca has to reckon with a price increase in the future inspires our customers to realise the purchase of a property in Mallorca now. Prospective buyers of real estate in Mallorca have different characteristics as far as their search profile is concerned. The focus is still on properties that are located in the first sea line, for example, or at least have a beautiful sea view. Modern architecture, clean lines with minimalist design and functionality are the characteristics that a property must possess for the majority of buyers. But, there is still interest in the classic, modernised finca in an idyllic location. In this respect, there is a great demand for the modern, newly built villa in Port Andratx, the modern, high-quality penthouse in a well-kept apartment complex and the holiday flat with style and quick access to the beach and the city. Properties that meet these criteria can be found in the southwest as well as in other regions of the island of Mallorca.
The southwest of the island of Mallorca has become increasingly attractive in recent decades. Compared to other island regions, an infrastructure has developed here that can easily keep up with that of other large cities in Spain. The city of Palma has become a modern metropolis that has now exceeded the 450,000 population mark. Other towns in Mallorca's southwest, such as the outskirts of the Balearic capital Palma, are Illetas, Puerto Portals, Palmanova, Port Adriano, Santa Ponsa and, of course, the municipality of Andratx with the legendary harbour town of Puerto de Andratx. These places have now achieved international renown and have become a kind of seal of quality for the island of Mallorca and the entire Balearic Islands. In this context, the villages that merge into one another such as Cala Mayor, San Agustin and Cas Catala are worthy of mention. Wonderful locations directly on the picturesque coastline of the Bahia de Palma have become a popular holiday destination for Mallorca lovers as well as for holiday property owners. In addition, there are excellent flight connections, so that you can travel to the island from all over Europe within a few hours by plane.
On the other hand, according to official figures, it can be concluded that there is currently a downward trend in immigrants of British and German origin. Nevertheless, it is said that the proportion of foreigners measured in 2020 will be 18.8% and thus steadily increasing. This means that the Balearic Islands will have the highest percentage population growth in Spain in 2020.
We wonder what has caused the decline in the immigrant group from Germany and Great Britain. The explanation could be that Mallorca and the entire Balearic Islands are increasingly developing into a luxury location. High living costs, rising property prices and a shortage of rental space make it impossible for the less well-off immigrant to maintain the same standard of living as he is used to in his home country. In addition, the labour market on the Balearic Islands does not give all immigrants a job. The fierce competition, especially among the immigrants themselves, discourages many newcomers. All in all, it can be said that for many Germans and Britons, Mallorca, the place of longing, can only be conquered as a new centre of life if one has the necessary means, creativity and the well-known virtues needed to be successful. This development may be bad for the individual, but for the Balearic Islands as such it should rather be seen as a positive development. For the British in particular, the "Brexit" will also have triggered uncertainty and contributed decisively to the general withdrawal.
All those who are financially in safe waters and desire Mallorca as a location for a holiday residence will see the aforementioned trends and developments more as an incentive. The island of Mallorca will become more exclusive and a hotspot for well-heeled people, which it already is, at least in the southwest region. It is to be hoped that this beautiful island in the Mediterranean, with all its beauty and its hospitable local inhabitants, will continue to be a place of recreation for all people, regardless of their financial means. Mallorca will remain a place of longing and will never lose its attractiveness as long as there are people who strive for a healthy ecological and economic balance.
