Spain: Face masks mandatory on all beaches


From March 30th 2021, masks must be worn on Spanish beaches and in all public spaces. If holidaymakers are allowed to travel to Spain this summer, they will have to wear masks on the beach. 

The Spanish government issued a new decree on Tuesday that stipulates that all people six years of age and older must wear face masks "on public streets, outdoor spaces, and any enclosed space that is publicly used or open to the public." 


 The new regulations will apply to people who sunbathe or even swim by the sea. When the distance between people cannot be less than 1.5 meters, masks must be worn in all public places (including outdoors). Starting Wednesday, the social isolation exception will no longer be used. The strict new law also deprived local governments of the right to modify mask-wearing rules. 

The governor of the Balearic Islands, the governor of Majorca and Ibiza, exempted beach tourists from wearing masks when they were able to isolate themselves from society last summer. 


The suppression by the Spanish government comes amid concerns that Spain may face the fourth resurgence of Covid since the pandemic began. The Ministry of Health recorded 149 cases per 100,000 people in 14 days on Monday, up from 129 cases per 100,000 a week ago.
