A political group in Ibiza is trying to ban beach clubs and hotel parties
Quite recently, a new political group named Podems launched a campaign to pressure the government to ban all beach clubs from Ibiza and what are called on the island “hotel nightclubs”.
The group said the events are a “serious inconvenience” to people on the island. The band claims the music can be heard miles away and is hampering recent tourism laws put in place by the Balearic Islands. The group says the worst offenders are the beach clubs in the resort town of Platja d’en Bossa.
According to The sunPodemos spokesperson, Fernando Gomez says that one of the improvements the group wants to promote is to “end the legal limbo of one of the biggest problems caused by tourism on the island of Ibusinessathat is, the serious inconvenience caused by the so-called beach clubs and hotel nightclubs.
“But there are several other examples of beach bars or restaurants on other beaches that have become sources of noise and disturbance.” –Fernando Gomez
Podemos has said in its campaign that it wants music to be played at an audible level and believes violators should be fined. As mentioned earlier, the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca) recently implemented new laws to improve the quality of stay for guests, including liquor laws that limit tourists to six drinks a day at all-inclusive resorts. Currently, fines of up to €60,000 can be imposed on those caught dangling or advertising party boats.
