Almost 30 Beaches on Balearic Islands Have Banned Smoking

In the new tourist season, 28 beaches of the three most popular resorts of the Balearic Islands (Spain) have banned smoking.

Vacationers have already been warned about increasing the number of “smoke-free zones” as part of a regional plan to improve people’s health, develop family tourism and combat cigarette butts left on the sand.

In particular, four beaches in Majorca and five more in Ibiza were added to the smoke-free list this summer.

The anti-smoking campaign started in the Balearic Islands in 2019 with just two beaches, and with nine beaches joining the list this year, it has now reached a total of 28 – on Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca.

Similar schemes are already in place or planned for other popular tourist destinations in Spain.

The Government of the Balearic Islands has announced a new step in its “crusade” against excessive tourism.

Spanish island resorts want to reduce the number of British tourists. Various measures are being considered: from restrictions on the sale of numbers to a limit on flights. In the Balearic and Canary Islands, it is believed that budget tourism from the UK does not benefit local economies and residents.
