BRITS heading for Majorca and Ibiza are being warned not to take risks by attending secret raves or unauthorised parties.

In new travel advice, the British government says they must not take "unnecessary risks".

"There have been a number of serious accidents involving people attending irregular commercially promoted parties in villas and private homes on the islands of Ibiza and Majorca," said an Embassy spokesman.

"Licensed clubs and bars are required to meet safety and security standards, including emergency exits and capacity limits, and to have trained, licensed security staff. Irregular commercial parties may not meet these standards. "

The government adds: "You should take care of your belongings, ensure you know where emergency exits are located and not take unnecessary risks.

"Heavy fines may be imposed by local authorities to anyone attending irregular commercial parties."

The advice is part of new guidelines on a crackdown on so-called "uncivic behaviour" in the party hotspots of Majorca and Ibiza.

Brits could be fined up to £25,000 if caught going to illegal parties.

The latest travel advice clarifies: "Legislation introduced by the Regional Government in the Balearic Islands, covering designated areas within the resorts of Magaluf (Calvià) and Playa de Palma on the island of Majorca, and San Antonio (San Antoni de Portmany) on the island of Ibiza, places limits on the sale and availability of alcohol."

"In designated areas of the resorts of San Antonio, Magaluf and Playa de Palma there are prohibitions on happy hours, open bars (such as all you can drink in one-hour offers), the sale of alcohol from vending machines, self-service alcohol dispensers and the organising of pub-crawls and party boat trips.

"The law also prohibits “off-licence” sales between 9:30pm and 8am."

Holidaymakers will now be slapped with a six-drink-a-day limit instead of having alcohol on tap when on an all-inclusive break.

Balearic Government chiefs say they want to improve the image of the party resorts which have a reputation for boozy and bad behaviour. 

In addition, hotels and other establishments are obliged to evict clients found to be behaving dangerously on balconies, with fines for both the client and the establishment.

It isn't the only law Brits could be breaking without realising – in some parts of Spain it’s against the law to be in the street wearing only a bikini or swimming shorts/trunks. 

"Being bare-chested has also been banned in some areas of Spain," says the British government.

"Some local councils will impose fines if you’re caught wearing swimwear on the seafront promenade or the adjacent streets."

Spain is currently open to UK holidaymakers who are fully vaccinated, although unvaxxed Brits are yet to be allowed into the country.

Only teenagers between 12 and 17 are exempt from needing to be vaccinated, along with kids under this age.
