Visitors to Ibiza's beaches will have to wear a face mask by law this summer.
On March 30 Spain will introduce a new law that makes it mandatory to wear a face mask "on public roads, in open-air spaces and in any closed space for public use or that is open to the public."
Mandatory face mask rules were introduced in Spain last summer but the new regulation goes much further than the previous version of the law, which stated that masks must be worn when social distancing is restricted.
The Telegraph reports that officials were allowed to exempt the Balearic Islands from the ruling up until now but that is expected to change going forward as Spain attempts to drive down covid infection rates and open its borders to safe international travel.
The law applies to those aged six and over.
