UK holidaymakers travelling to Majorca have been warned anti-social behaviour could cost them a fine of up to €3,000.

Police on the island began their seasonal security measures on 1 May, which will last until 15 October.

Officers will be on the lookout for illegal massages, street vending, street drinking, pub crawls and noise pollution and, if rules are broken, tourists face fines of €100 for minor violations and up to €3,000 for the most serious cases, Majorca Daily Bulletin reports.

Shopkeepers have also been reminded they could be fined up to €600,000 if they break rules designed to limit the amount of alcohol sold to tourists.  

The Foreign Office guidance says: “In designated areas of the resorts, there are prohibitions on happy hours, open bars (such as all you can drink in 1-hour offers), the sale of alcohol from vending machines, self-service alcohol dispensers and the organising of pub-crawls and party boat trips.

“The law also prohibits ‘off-licence’ sales between 9:30pm and 8am.”
