Councillor of Health, Patricia Gómez, explained the Balearics will continue to maintain this measure, agreed in November in the Government Council.
However, face masks must be worn if you are on the beach and meeting up with another social bubble and a maximum of six people.
Gómez specified the details after participating in the Interterritorial Health Council.
Therefore she has proposed working in a technical-legal committee with the participation of the different regions to modify the measure, “provided there is consensus.”
Over on the Canary Islands, anyone swimming or sunbathing won’t have to don a mask.
With no end date in sight for Spanish face mask rules, Britons may have to observe the new mask law when travel to Spain is permitted again.
Being made to wear a mask while visiting beaches or swimming pools may be less than desirable for many tourists.
One wrote on Twitter in reaction to the order to wear masks on beaches: “I will not be going to Spain. I was going to book a trip to Palma for a weekend and then a family holiday maybe, but I will not be wearing a mask outside anywhere.”
Another wrote: “I’ll not bother looking at Spain for a holiday then. Sitting on a beach in only shorts and a face mask isn’t for me.”
“Or in cases when, due to the very nature of the activities, the use of the mask is incompatible, in accordance with the indications of the health authorities.”
Spain’s ban on UK arrivals was lifted yesterday but travellers still must prove they are visiting for essential reasons.
However, under UK rules, Britons are not able to travel until May 17 at the earliest.
