“A number of serious accidents have occurred on the islands of Ibiza and Mallorca involving people attending irregular, commercially-sponsored parties in villas and private homes,” an embassy spokesman said.

“Licensed clubs and bars must meet safety standards, including emergency exits and capacity limits, and have trained, licensed security personnel. Irregular commercial parties may not meet these standards.”

The Government adds: “You should look after your belongings, make sure you know where emergency exits are and not take any unnecessary risks.

“Anyone who attends irregular commercial parties can be subject to heavy fines by local authorities.”

The advice is part of new guidelines to crack down on so-called “uncivil behavior” in party hotspots Mallorca and Ibiza.

Brits can be fined up to £25,000 if caught partying illegally.

The latest travel advisory clarifies: “Legislation introduced by the regional government of the Balearic Islands that limits certain areas within the resorts of Magaluf (Calvià) and Playa de Palma on the island of Mallorca and San Antonio (San Antoni de Portmany) on the island of Ibiza the sale and availability of alcohol.”

“In designated areas of the resorts of San Antonio, Magaluf and Playa de Palma, there are bans on happy hours, open bars (e.g. alcohol dispensers and the organization of pub crawls and party boat trips.

“The law also prohibits sales without a license between 9:30 p.m. and 8:00 a.m.”

Holidaymakers are now being slapped with a limit of six drinks a day, rather than having alcohol on tap in an all-inclusive break.

Balearic leaders say they want to bolster the image of party resorts known for their intoxication and bad behavior.

In addition, hotels and other establishments are required to evict customers found to behave dangerously on balconies, with fines for both the customer and the establishment.

It’s not the only law Brits could be breaking without realizing it – in some parts of Spain it’s against the law to only wear a bikini or swimming trunks on the street.

“It’s also illegal to be shirtless in some areas of Spain,” the UK government says.

“Some municipalities impose fines if you’re caught wearing swimwear on the boardwalk or adjacent streets.”

Spain is currently open to British holidaymakers who are fully vaccinated, although unvaccinated Brits are not yet allowed to enter the country.

Only young people between the ages of 12 and 17 and children under this age are exempt from compulsory vaccination.
