Some areas, like the quaint medieval town of Salobreña, ban barbecues on beaches, and those found breaking the rules will be fined €3,000.

While other regions occasionally allow small grills or campfires with prior permission, or on national holidays like San Juan Night in June, tourists should check before lighting one.

This extends to creating a fire pit, having gas cylinders, flammable liquids, or igniting any type of cooking machine.

Breaking the BBQ rule is the biggest penalty tourists can receive on a Spanish beach, but there are a few other rules to keep in mind.
