Hoteliers complain that there was an increase in criminal activity and tourist anti-social behaviour this summer.
All set to break the record.
The scene of the attack.
Playa de Palma in October.
Legal holiday lets are around one-tenth the number of what are said to be illegal ones.
Almost three million tourists in August.
The street seller had tried to prevent a robbery.
Playa de Palma has been the focus of attention for excesses this year.
The tourism of excesses law "has not been able to stop those negative and viral images that we all know".
The attack took place on Saturday.
A problem for the authorities is that some offenders are insolvent; fines aren't imposed.
The hoteliers accuse Palma town hall and the Council of Mallorca of inaction in responding to reports of illegal activities.
Playa de Palma and other popular resort areas keep pulling in the tourists.
Some 50 officers were involved in the operations.
