Palma en Mallorca (DinSide): In June, DinSide reported that several tourists in Mallorca had been robbed on the beach in broad daylight. Now that the Spanish holiday destination is in high season, DinSide has heard from tourists whether they fear thieves and whether they take any precautions before visiting the beach.

Couple Peter and Lolly Kelly make their way to the sandy beach of Can Per Antoni in Palma, Mallorca. They have been holidaying on the Spanish island for several years and say they are always careful.

“It's terrible not being able to enjoy a day at the beach without having to worry,” say the couple from Warrington, England.

Peter and Lolly explain that they avoid taking valuables to the beach, and that they keep a close eye on them if they dive.
