Under Level 4 regulations, beaches are limited to 50% capacity and may require “advance appointment”, according to the Spanish tourist board.

So beach-goers will need to book in advance if they want to relax in the sun on the sand.

Additional Level 4 restrictions include a return to the rule of six, meaning only six people can meet indoors or outdoors.

Fake passports must be presented to enter all establishments, and pubs and restaurants must close at midnight.

Power levels have been cut to 75% outdoors and 33% indoors to avoid super-spreading events.

Public transport capacity was also cut to 75%.

Tenerife is the only Spanish island that has been raised to alert level 4.

La Palma, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura are still at Level 3, and El Hierro and Laomera are still at Level 2.

Spain still requires all Britons aged 12 and over to be fully vaccinated against Covid to be allowed to enter.

This rule reminds thousands of families cancel their vacations before Christmas, as teenagers in the UK don’t all get a second chance to get vaccinated.

A drop in tourists to Spain in the winter has devastated the hotel industry.

Benidorm is facing the worst new year startand hoteliers say the situation is very serious.

In other Spanish news, Smokers will be banned from lighting up on beaches in Spain as a new law could see people fined £1,700.

And Holidays in Benidorm could cost more next year due to a new tourist tax.
