How wearing a bikini could ruin your Spanish holiday

NEXT time you head to Spain, you could find yourself in trouble depending on where you wear your swimsuit.

The holiday destination can reach scorching temperatures and in some beach resorts, it's not uncommon to see holidaymakers stripped down to just a bikini.

However, two popular Spanish destinations have strict rules on where you can wear swimwear – with fines for any rulebreakers.

In Barcelona, people can only wear bikinis on the beach, and holidaymakers caught wearing one in the town centre could face a fine of up to £260.

Similarly, bikinis are limited to the beaches in Majorca, with fines of up to £500 for those caught flouting the rules.

It's not just swimswear that could get you in trouble too.
