Swimwear ban slated for Majorca

Government Authorities in Majorca have vowed to ban tourists from wearing nothing but swimwear on the streets.

As part of the Good Citizen Plan, Palma City Council will issue fines of up to £500 to holidaymakers who leave the beach dressed only in bikinis or trunks this summer.

Under a section titled ‘Etiquette’, the Ordenanza states anyone ‘devoid of superior parts of clothing’ in roads not immediately adjacent to the beach will be fined, reports the Daily Mail.

The move comes as bars and restaurant owners are apparently fed up with serving underdressed holidaymakers.

Palma’s vice mayor Alvaro Gijon said the aim of the new laws was to regulate good behaviour for tourists and residents with the aim of preserving ‘harmony and civility’, the newspaper reported.
