Malaga City Council Targets Badly Behaved Tourists

Boozy and badly behaved tourists in one of Spain’s best-loved beach resorts are to be fined up to 750 Euros for antics that outrage local people.

Costa del Sol officials in Malaga have announced tough new measures aimed at cleaning up the streets in the province.

Rowdy stag or hen parties found wandering bar to bar clutching sex dolls or giant blow-up penises will face stiff fines under the new rule.

And anyone found anywhere except the beach in just their swimwear will also be fined, according to local media.

Offenders who strip down to their underwear in public will also face penalties.

The offences are included in the new Article 36 of the Citizen Coexistence Ordinance covering Malaga’s public places and streets.

Offenders will be fined between EUR 300 and EUR 750  for each breach of the local law.

The new law specifically targets rowdy holidaymakers and wild stag and hen parties.

Malaga is following in the footsteps of other tourist hotspots in Spain, according to local media.

Five years ago Marbella banned anyone appearing shirtless and bare-chested in public places.
