BRITS caught drinking on Marbella’s paseo maritimo or around Mallorca this summer could be fined €3,000 thanks to a new crackdown on boozy tourists.
According to the Daily Star, happy hours have also been banned in popular resorts across Spain following an international summit to battle unruly holidaymakers in Mallorca last month.
The result has been to declare zones of ‘special tourism interest’ where police will work to control drinking and ‘bad behaviour.’
It means from April 1 to September 30, tourists face €3,000 penalties if caught drinking alcohol or eating in the street.
Bars will be fined for offering happy hour deals and displaying alcoholic drinks while cops will be able to carry out checks.
The areas affected include Palma’s city centre, the Paseo Maritimo in Marbella, Calle Joan Miro, Cala Major and Playa de Palma.
