Spain’s Costa del Sol wants to crack down on “scandalous” bachelor and bachelorette parties and is considering installing noise monitors in tourist apartments.

Malaga leads after hoteliers and residents said they were fed up with “Magaluf-style drunk tourism” in the historic city.

They are particularly outraged by the large groups of men and women who dress in “outrageous costumes,” wear phallus symbols, and take over high-end restaurants for their celebrations.

Local mayor Francisco de la Torre has confirmed that the city council is fighting “party tourism” and has promised: “We will not tolerate an uncontrolled city.”

And he added: “Anyone who comes must abide by the rules of coexistence in the city.”

He has promised tough measures, including soundproofing controls and heavy fines for violations.

The number of bachelor and bachelorette parties has skyrocketed in recent months following the easing of coronavirus restrictions and a resurgence in tourism.

Local residents say Malaga seems “to be consolidating itself as a destination for this drunk tourism” and hoteliers share their view, saying the destination’s image is being tarnished.

Carlos Carrera, president of the residents’ association of the historic center, said: “Malaga has all the necessary qualities to attract this drunken Magaluf-type tourism”, especially since there are so many tourist apartments in the main residential area.

“The leisure facilities and terraces have increased, as have the number of bars, music venues and nightclubs so they can do what they do on the street,” he said.

“People come here to do what they want because nothing will happen to them. The police do little or nothing, appearing deaf, blind and dumb. This type of tourism is very harmful, benefits very few and drives away quality tourism. “

The federation says both national and international bachelor parties are “armed with megaphones and sound players” and “spoil the jewel in the city’s crown”.

The direction of the historic center had to be “corrected” to regain control of the situation.

Mr Carrera welcomed the introduction of noise meters in tourist apartments but questioned who would monitor them.

Javier Frutos, president of Mahos, Malaga’s hoteliers’ association, said the hospitality sector rejects “all kinds of public scandals that are not very edifying for the city”.

“Not all people who decide to have a bachelorette party behave in the same way, but it’s true that many of them dress in flashy ways, which many hoteliers don’t encourage.

Some restaurants don’t allow you to enter their premises with this attire.”

“The fact that people want to come and have fun is correct, as long as they do so out of respect for the city they arrive in, for the customers, visitors and passers-by around them.”

It is estimated that around 300,000 bachelorette parties are celebrated in Spain each year, but the nuisance they can cause has led a number of cities and tourist resorts to ban them in public.

These locations include Madrid, Salamanca and Tossa de Mar.
