Political group in Ibiza attempts to ban beach clubs and hotel parties

A new political group Podemos has launched a campaign to ban all beach clubs and "hotel discos" in Ibiza.

The organization called on the government to ban such parties as they cause serious inconvenience to local residents.

Podemos spokesman said the group aims to "end the legal uncertainty of one of the most important problems caused by tourism on the island of Ibiza, that is, the serious inconvenience caused by the so-called beach clubs and nightclubs in hotels."

Podemos is lobbying the government to fine establishments that play music at an audible volume. It is not clear if the decibel limit will apply if the authorities pass new laws.

Last month, it was confirmed that nightclubs on the island could reopen from April. Clubs have not opened for a full season since 2019 due to the COVID pandemic.
