British holidaymakers could be fined hundreds of pounds if caught peeing in the sea after a strict ban was imposed by a local council.

Tourists in the Spanish city of Vigo who relieve themselves in the water face a fine of 750 euros.

Authorities in the city, which lies near the border with Portugal in Galicia’s north-western region, have decided to ban “physiological evacuations on the beach or in the sea,” reports The Times.

No details have been given on how the new rule will be enforced, but additional public facilities will be introduced on the area’s beaches.

In addition to banning urination in the sea, officials have also banned using soap or shampoo in the water and washing cooking utensils in the sea.

The council also plans to promote healthy living by banning smoking on certain beaches, which should also reduce pollution from cigarette butts.

The move isn’t the first time a local council in Galicia has introduced strict rules for beachgoers.

About 100 miles north in Mino, authorities have issued guidelines giving preferential treatment to swimmers and sunbathers, although those wishing to take part in water sports can only do so after 10am.

Nudity rules vary widely on Spanish beaches

Vigo is not the first city in Spain to ban sea weeding.

San Pedro del Pinatar in Murcia banned the practice in 2017, along with measures banning nudity, reserving a spot on the beach with a towel, and playing racket and ball. A violation of the nudity ban can be punished with a fine of 750 €.

There are fines of up to €1,500 for lighting a fire or BBQ, while San Pedro del Pinatar’s Beach Code states that anyone selling food or drink without the proper license can be fined up to €3,000 .

Beach laws in Spain vary widely, from extremely strict to fairly lax.

In Barcelona, ​​​​Málaga and Palma de Mallorca, fines of up to 300 euros can be imposed for walking down the street in a bikini or swimming trunks without a t-shirt.

However, the southern city of Cádiz recently lifted a nudity ban on certain beaches, allowing all of the region’s seaside resorts to welcome nudists.
