Brits no longer allowed to wear football tops and swim shorts in Majorca resorts



IDEANEWSINDO.COM - Majorca and surrounding Balearic Islands have been known as a party hub for Brits for many years now.

But in a bid to crack down on the chaos and damage caused by tourists, authorities and business are now looking to put rules in place to curb drunken antics.

One recent example of this is the Palma Beach resorts' new dress code which has now been adopted by 11 associated restaurants, reports the Star.

The dress codes involve a number of banned items of clothing, including football shirts, strapless vest tops, swimsuits and accessories bought from street vendors.

This comes as business gear up for a busy summer season, although with the hopes of attracting a different demographic.

Business leaders in popular Playa de Palma have declared they’re sick of “drunken tourism,” claims The Sun.

The statement has come very early in the season, but a group of restaurants in the resorts have banded together and will now require tourists to obey a dress code.

If holidaymakers fail to follow the rules and dress appropriately then they will be refused entry.

So, if you plan to jet off to Playa de Palma make sure you don’t wear any of the banned items.

Banned apparel includes:
  • Tank tops without straps
  • Swimming trunks
  • Swimsuits
  • Any accessories purchased from street vendors
  • Football strips
A total of 11 restaurants so far have signed up to the ban all of which are associated with Palma Beach, but this may grow over the summer.

QR codes will be placed at entryways to inform customers about the dress code.

CEO of Palma Beach, Juanmi Ferrer said: "The situation on public roads is worse now than in 2017, 2018 and 2019. We already consider the season lost in terms of incivility control.

"We need support from the authorities because neither the businesses nor the residents can stop it."

Juanmi noted that the restaurants hope to “re-educate” tourists through “friendly” communication so that they learn to change their attitudes over time.

Any holidaymakers spotted wearing clothing with logos of businesses that “promote drunken tourism” will also be banned.

And, only “simple clothing” will be allowed with the rules stating that street vendor items will see customers kicked out.

Playa de Palma has many street vendors who sell novelty items like neon clothes, umbrella hats, flashing sunglasses, gold chains and glow in the dark accessories

The restaurants applying the ban have said that there will be no flexibility at night while in the day some allowances may be made.

And, the clothing ban is not the first attempt by resorts to curb the drunken behaviour of rowdy Brits.

Earlier this year all-inclusive hotels in the Balearic Islands limited customers to six alcoholic drinks per day.

The new rule affects certain resort areas of the Balearic Islands, including Palma, Ibiza and Magaluf – though not every hotel so check the fine print on your holiday contract.

Regulations in the resorts now state that “alcoholic drinks will be limited to six per day” in an attempt to limit anti-social behaviour on the islands.

It’s thought that there’s also a ban on pub crawls, happy hours and two-for-one drinks offers in certain areas and those caught breaking the rules will incur heavy fines.
