Spain holiday warning issued to Brits in Majorca, Malaga and Tenerife

by Staff

UK holidaymakers in destinations like Majorca, Malaga and Tenerife have been told to “get out” as changes lead to public demonstrations across Spain.

In Malaga, a recent campaign even featured posters telling tourists to “f*** *f”. A local pub manager, Dani Drunko, said to local newspaper Sur: “I live in a neighbourhood of Malaga called Fuente Olletas and was told a few weeks ago the owner wouldn’t be renewing my rental contract.

“And I had to leave because the property was going to be readapted for tourist lets. Every day I’m receiving photos of new stickers and people that are making it go viral. There’s a lot of movement because citizens are sick of the situation,” reports Birmingham Live.

  • Even Magaluf is transforming its approach towards holidaymakers, prioritising the “quality” over the “quantity” of its tourists. According to the town’s mayor: “We’ve taken bold steps to crack down on what can only be described as the ‘aggressive’ sale of alcohol. What I mean by that is happy hours, the sale of cheap alcohol, the two or three-for-ones, the sale of alcohol by supermarkets during the hours of 9.30pm to 8am, the degradation of women with wild party games in the large pubs.”

    “We’ve banned pub crawls and the advertising of party boats, which are no longer allowed to sell alcohol on board. Yes, the cruises and boat trips can leave and enter Magaluf, but they are coastal trips so people can enjoy the scenery, the environment, a swim – to relax and make the most of their holiday experience,” the mayor also said previously.

    In Tenerife, local graffiti telling holidaymakers to “go home” can be seen around the seafront. Lots of Brits visiting have come across this message.

    Spain is also experiencing a severe drought, so many popular destinations like Tenerife and Costa del Sol have introduced tough new restrictions. Local authorities are also thinking about making nightlife restrictions stricter, which could mean bars and restaurants have to close earlier.

    And, If you’re a Brit without an EU passport and are keen on a Spanish getaway, make sure to bring proof of accommodation. Anyone visiting from outside the Schengen zone, including returning UK residents, will need confirmation of their book or resident’s address if staying at their own Spanish property.
