We are in CB at the moment and on a walk into Cala Millor one of our party had her purse stolen.
It was taken from her handbag.
Just be cautious.
I would treat this as a standard suggestion for pretty much any resort, yes, even Cala Bona, there are bag dippers everywhere, don’t be alarmed, just don’t give then the opportunity, keep your bags in front of you, not hung over your shoulder or behind, and keep your wits about you in bus queues as they regularly target these.
Thanks for the warning, yes I know you should always be security concious but I admit to stupidly being a little more carefree in Cala Bona, we will be more careful in future.
Yes thanks for that, so easy to let your guard down on holiday, and makes sense to be extra cautious.
Thanks for the heads-up. I will ensure my handbag is fastened and carried to the front as you suggest😉
Seriously though cheers for the info. We have always tried to be vigilant (wife being a bit wary about that sort of thing) but we do alot of walking between the resorts, and knowing the risk has escallated, we will take extra care.

I had my pocket dipped a couple of years ago in Cala Bona , i tripped over near the 60s bar and 2 young girls helped me up , i went into the 60s bar to sit and recover with a coffee and my back pocket had been unzipped and emptied , only €20 but the girls were very clever the way they did it without me noticing , we sometimes go to Cala Millor for an evening ( Cheers bar ) and take a nice night time stroll back to our hotel in Cala Bona afterwards , this year i think we will either get a taxi or stay in Cala Bona late at night 🖒🖒Edited: 07 June 2018, 22:25
