MARBELLA town hall is cracking down on tourists who it feels are tarnishing the image of hot spots like Puerto Banus.
Councillors have drawn up plans to regulate behaviour which they consider anti-social and to impose fines on anyone who doesn’t comply.
This includes going shirtless in certain places.
It comes after two drunk Brits hit ten pedestrians with their car after being kicked out of a popular beach party in Puerto Banus.
But Javier Porcuna, councillor for security, has said the crackdown was being planned before the hit-and-run incident.
Porcuna said in a press conference that the local authority had already decided to reinforce police presence in the port.
He said that recent situations ‘will not be tolerated’ in the future.
He also added that bars will be watched more closely, especially those who are considered to be encouraging antisocial behaviour.
“We are not talking about using powers which are beyond our means, but there are licences which are granted at our total discretion, and when looking at those we will analyse in detail whether we are contributing to the improvement of the Puerto Banús product or whether we are taking a step backwards,” he said.
