Majorca wants to move away from its party image and instead wants to stand for relaxation, sustainability and quality. Here's an overview of existing and new rules that were decided this year.

What applies in hotels?

  • No unlimited all-inclusive alcohol in hotels in the regions of Playa de Palma, S'Arenal and Magaluf (as well as Sant Antoni de Portmany on Ibiza). Only three alcoholic drinks each at lunch and dinner are allowed there. Happy hours are also prohibited.

  • The number of guest beds is frozen at the current level for an initial four years. If hotels want to renovate, they even have to give up 5% of their capacity.

  • The environmental requirements for hotels are increasing (Recycling and Sustainability Act).

What applies when partying?

  • Shoes and T-shirt or shirt are compulsory. Toplessness is not allowed, regardless of gender, nor are mankinis.

  • Megaphones or loudspeakers as well as costumes are prohibited.

  • Anyone who is already conspicuous as drunk or violent or displays politically offensive symbols before entry will be turned away or permanently banned.

  • Trips with alcohol on party boats are prohibited.

(There are not laws, but a voluntary commitment by the pubs).

What applies to smokers?

  • Smoking will remain prohibited on restaurant terraces and when walking in the street.

  • In 2023, the ban could be extended to beaches, concerts, parks and sports grounds.
