EasyJet warning for people traveling to the Spanish Balearic Islands

A MAJOR airline has warned holidaymakers of new alcohol laws in force in parts of the Balearic Islands.

EasyJet has urged customers to take note of the new rules on the islands mean before they travel.

Anyone attempting to book an All Inclusive holiday to these destinations through the low-cost airline receives the following message: “Due to a change in Spanish law which affects certain resorts in the Balearic Islands, alcoholic beverages are now restricted three per person for lunch and dinner as part of the all-inclusive formula.

This means tourists will be limited to just six drinks a day as part of their package at hotels in certain areas.

The law came into force in 2020, after the government of the Balearic Islands pledged to crack down on excessive alcohol consumption on the islands.

Authorities have banned happy hours, pub crawls and two-for-one drink deals at three of the most popular tourist destinations.

Alcohol cannot be sold in stores between 9:30 p.m. and 8:00 a.m., while party billboards in some areas are also prohibited.

The rules came into force in San Antonio in Ibiza and in Playa de Palma and Magaluf in Mallorca.

Anyone looking to purchase more than the daily limit of six drinks at an all-inclusive resort in these areas must pay extra for them.
