On the island of Mallorca, Magaluf is located in the Calvia district, around 15 kilometers from Palma and the Son Sant Joan Airport. This destination is known for its nonstop party atmosphere, and Spanish authorities are gearing up for party-loving tourists coming to find a raucous holiday.
After previous episodes of naked visitors prancing around in the streets, the government of Magaluf is sending out a warning that tourists may be fined from £500 to £2,200 for such acts, including public urination, skinny dipping, and offenses that lead to violence and criminal damage.
Tourism bosses on the island are also augmenting CCTV and police patrols, and have banned drinking in the streets between 10 pm and 8 am. Shops will stop selling alcohol after midnight.
Last summer, a video surfaced of a young Brit girl performing sex acts on 24 strangers in a bar for free cocktails. Other videos showed girls being encouraged by club promoters and DJs to strip and perform acts of a sexual nature.
This prompted the effort to clean up the destination with Britain’s ambassador to Spain, Simon Manley, saying they want British visitors to Magaluf to enjoy themselves, as they do elsewhere in Spain, but to also be safe and show respect for Spain’s laws and customs.
