Thousands of delighted Britons have now arrived in sunny Ibiza to escape the 'mixed bag of spring weather' in the UK for the May Bank Holiday.

The British tourists soaked up the sun on beaches, danced the night away in nightclubs and indulged in the odd glass of sangria. 

The Spanish Mediterranean island, summer outpost for major European nightclubs, is preparing for the first summer season since the Covid-19 pandemic forced the island to close down. 

Ibiza's opening parties, including Pacha, O Beach and Defected Ibiza, normally kick-off at the start of May, with the season lasting until September. 

Meanwhile, Spanish officials have sparked outrage by enforcing a 'six drinks a day' rule for all-inclusive holidays and in resorts on islands including Ibiza and Majorca.

The new law, which affects some hotels in the Balearic Islands, means that holidaymakers are forced to pay extra if they want more than three free alcoholic drinks per meal.

Spanish officials first announced the new law in January but its has caught out hundreds of British holiday-makers who are now arriving in the islands. 

Local authorities in Spain introduced the booze ban in January this year, which affects certain resort areas of the Balearic Islands, including Palma, Ibiza and Magaluf.

The new law - which states 'alcoholic drinks will be limited to six per day' - is part of a package of measures designed to crack down on anti-social behaviour.

These also believed to include bans on pub crawls, happy hours and two-for-one drinks offers, which are all being enforced by hefty fines.
