Spain holidays have always traditionally been a popular choice with Britons. The country offers Britons a cheap break with great beaches, delicious food and plenty of sun. In recent weeks, Spain has unveiled a variety of safety measures to give visitors peace of mind.
But since the UK government released a list of destinations that Britons can travel to without facing quarantine rules on their return, Spain has been a popular choice for British holidaymakers.
One holidaymaker, who wishes to remain unnamed, has revealed what their experience was like in Alicante.
They headed to Torrevieja, Playa del Postiguet and then Valencia.
When asked about safety measures, they explained that one beach in Torrevieja was sectioning off the beach for tourists so they remained socially distanced.

They added: “But Playa del Postiguet has no social distancing measures like that.
“Just patrols going up and down semi-regularly.”
They then explained the differences at the bars and pubs.
“They just have QR codes on the table that you scan and it shows you the menu.

“They’re not handing out physical menus.
“Honestly, it’s pretty normal here.”
But unlike areas such as Magaluf in the Balearic Islands that have been inundated with guests, the British holidaymaker revealed that they felt like the only Briton.
“I feel like the only tourist. It’s really nice,” they added.

But they admitted that nightclubs reportedly being open in Alicante did pose issues because people were not wearing masks.
They added: “Clubs were open.
“And people weren’t wearing masks which was super strange. Towards the weekend, it was hectic.
“I wouldn’t have known anything was awry if bar and restaurant staff weren’t wearing masks.”
International travel post-lockdown
However, they explained that Valencia, which is the country’s third biggest city was very different.
They explained: “In Valencia, I’d say 85 percent of people were wearing masks on the street.”
Magaluf in the Balearic Islands has recently been closed by its government due to scenes emerging of Britons and Germans getting drunk.
Other parts of Spain have been forced to lock down once again due to a spike in coronavirus cases.
