I’m a Benidorm expert – Here’s how your partying can land you with a £1,000 fine on holiday | The Sun

GETTING into trouble while on holiday is a vacationer's worst nightmare, and seemingly innocent things could land you with a large fine.

Benidorm expert Frank has shared the surprising things which could land you in hot water – from partying to building sandcastles.

The self-proclaimed "Stag Man" shared his list of things to avoid while on holiday to save money.

He began: "Entering the beach between midnight and 7am, you can get yourself a fine of £650 to £1000."

And if you make the decision to sleep or camp on Benidorm's famous beaches, it could land you with a fine of £1000.

Hoping to land a good spot on the sandy shore early in the morning? Beware, because leaving parasols and other items to reserve a spot could cost you £730.

Frank continued: "Urinating in the sea can get you a fine of £130.

He joked: "I'm not sure how they're going to catch you on that one, but maybe they've got little submarines going around?"

Using soap and shampoo at public beach showers carries a fine up to £558, and drinking alcohol on the beach carries a fine of £650.

And building a sandcastle on Benidorm's sandy beaches could cost you up to £130.

These recent warnings follows a ban which sees 28 Spanish hotspots banning smoking on their beaches.

It comes amid an effort to crack down on cigarette butts plaguing busy beaches.

Authorities are also hoping to make areas smoke-free zones to improve the health of locals and holidaymakers alike.

The ban includes Ibiza's Playa de Santa Eulalia de Rio and Playa de Talamanca, while in Menorca smokers will have to resist in Binissafuller and Platja Gran.

Meanwhile in Majorca, the ban will be in place in Sant Joan, Sa Platgeta, Santa Ponsa, Cala Estancia, Cala Sant Vicenc and Calo des Moro.
