You and the law in Spain

If you are heading to the Costa del Sol on holiday then you are in for a real treat. There lots of fabulous beaches, bars and clubs and of you are staying in a hotel or in a self catering property there are a few things you should consider to avoid confrontations with the local police or your neighbours.

While you are on holiday and are there to have a great time please remember that there are many people who need to get up for work the next day. This is especially important to remember if you are staying in a residential self catering property where you are likely to have neighbours who are locals.

It is law that you must not make excessive noise after midnight in urban and residential areas. So if you get in late or are having fun at the property then you will need to lower the noise levels at midnight.

Smoking – Although considered very liberal for many years about things like smoking Spain is now taking a much tougher stance on such matters and there are designated smoking areas in public places. In July 2010 this changes to no smoking where non smokers may have to inhale smoke which will include bars, clubs, train stations, caf? etc. Before this a bar or club just needed to put up a warning saying the establishment was a smoking or a non smoking establishment therefore leaving it up to the patron to decide whether or not they wanted to enter.

Beaches – The beaches are there to have fun but there are a couple of rules you need to be aware of. You are not permitted to light fires or barbeques on the beach apart from one day a year (San Juan). So those images of midnight bonfires are not actually a reality in Spain as it is illegal.
